setting the context
Setting the context
  • The NHS has been asked to find savings of £20bn by 2015 to cope with rising demands.
  • In North Somerset, we need to find £11m of savings over the next 2 years.

…We are dealing with £15 to £20bn (in reduced costs), you don’t save that by not providing biscuits at a board meeting

what is planned care
What is Planned Care?

Planned care covers all services provided for adults, 18 years or over, which are planned (scheduled), including all primary care, community and hospital services.

This does not include emergency (unscheduled) care.

      • Elective Orthopaedics
      • NICE

  • A cataract operation on one eye costs the NHS about £900.
  • A hip replacement costs the CCG more than £5,000.

the need for change in north somerset
The need for change in North Somerset
  • Our acute hospital spend is increasing at a faster rate than our funding and faster than our growth in population.
  • Our acute hospital spend is increasing relative to our neighbours or our peers.
  • Our acute spend is increasing in the areas that we are trying to reduce.
  • Non acute spend is beginning to accelerate.
  • Not only is our spend higher than our allocation it is now higher than our target allocation.
  • We have signed up to deliver changes in service delivery that will save £11m over the next 2 years.
  • These savings are still largely embryonic.
acute hospital spend is increasing faster than our funding and faster than our growth in population
Acute hospital spend is increasing faster than our funding and faster than our growth in population

This is our key cost driver

  • 2012/13 - 2013/14
  • The problem is getting worse
  • In 2013/14 growth in acute hospital spend is £8m (6%)
  • In 2012/13, our unfunded growth in acute spend was £5m (4%)
  • This is well above what we would expect for overall population growth of 0.6%.
  • Even allowing for our aging population we would expect the impact of demographic change to be around £2.5m

Non-acute spend is broadly flat

Focus Areas
  • Trauma & Orthopaedics/ Musculo-Skeletal
  • Ophthalmology
  • Urology
  • Dermatology
  • Diabetes and other general medicine
  • Diagnostics
Our spend is not only higher than our actual allocation it is now higher than our target allocation ----

In 2013/14, we find ourselves with a gap of 7% between spending and our funding. We are in the process of understanding the change.

In 2012/13, the financial picture shifted into a less favourable position

In 2011/2012, our expenditure met our funding allocation


a real time example
A real time example
  • Dermatology: Keeping more of the work in GP practices
    • 1636 referrals into Acute (April- December 2013)
    • Advice and Guidance
    • Tele-dermatology
    • Redesign the pathway and enable the pathway with Map of Medicine
    • Explore developing GPs with special interest in dermatology and specialist nurses
    • Ensuring appropriateness of referrals and prescribing



Effective pathway

Reduction in number of inappropriate referrals

Greater skill and confidence in primary care

Improve speed of access to specialist treatments

Reduced variation in standards of care

Improved prescribing

  • Pathways not clear
  • High numbers of referrals into acute and growing waiting list
  • Variation in skills and confidence of doctors to treat
  • High demand on primary care appointments
  • Shortage of dermatologists nationally
THE CHALLENGES ARE SIGNIFICANTOur elective T&O hospital spend is increasing relative to our neighbours and our peers

Key Messages:

Trauma & Orthopaedics spend accounts for around £18m ( 20% ) of hospital spend on outpatients/admissions

There has been a sharp increase in more complex high cost procedures locally which is not mirrored nationally

key messages
Key Messages
  • We have a big challenge but we are getting a grip
  • We are NOT going to reduce costs by slashing quality
  • The first year as a CCG was a period of stabilisation but there is a renewed focus and energy
  • We are seeking innovative solutions to old problems
final thought
  • If every GP took out one referral a week, we would save a £1m.
  • The challenges are not intractable
  • The solutions are within reach
next steps
Next Steps
  • Exercise to gather reaction and feedback
  • 3 questions
  • 10 minutes timed discussion on each
  • Facilitator at each table

1. North Somerset is embarking on an ambitious programme to reduce unnecessary acute activity by introducing greater efficiencies in clinical pathways, improving the quality of referrals and engaging active patient citizenship.
