National and NW London context National context • The national Operating Framework for 2011/12 was published in Dec 2010 and sets out the national framework for maintaining and improving quality and outcomes, together with the finance and business rules. • “The most significant challenge we face in 2011/12 is to maintain a grip on current performance and QIPP delivery, whilst simultaneously preparing and beginning to put in place the future system” (Sir David Nicholson, December 2010) NW London context • In December 2010, NW London finalised its four year Strategic Commissioning and QIPP (Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention) Plan to 2014/15, including • Case for change • Use of benchmarking and case studies to set priorities • Development of models of care aligned to the settings in which they could be delivered • Review of the impact of the proposals on provider clinical and financial viability • Development of high level implementation plans • NW London issued its specific Commissioning Intentions for 2011/12 in January 2011
11/12 Planning Process Contract negotiations Nov - Mar 11 CSP Jan 10 10/11 Operating Plan Apr 10 Workshop Reviews with GP commissioners Jul - Oct 10 Joint development of 11/12 QIPP Nov - Mar 11 Budget setting process Nov– Mar 11
National context • Spending review settlement in October 2010 covering 11/12 – 14/15 – overall NHS spending to increase by 0.4% in real terms over the course of the Spending Review period • Allocations to PCTs for 11/12 (not beyond) confirmed in December 2010 • Key points: • Average increase in 11/12 allocations to PCTs = 3% • Brent = 2.6% • Of this, element is to be transferred to local authorities to support social care via a section 256 agreement • Net growth after this = Brent 2% (minimum level) • 2% of all PCTs resources will be held by SHAs, with PCTs being required to submit business cases to access the funding that demonstrate the non-recurrent nature of the proposed expenditure • PCT debt that has arisen pre 11/12 to be repaid by 2013/14 • Any debts/overspends in 11/12-12/13 become the responsibility of GP consortia • Revised weighted capitation formula published – now shows Brent 15% over target
NW London context • Cluster (NW London) financial strategy agreed by Cluster Board 9 March 2011 • 4% QIPP (excluding running costs) target at sub-Cluster level • Financial support provided/received in 09/10 to be repaid in 2011/12 – 2012/13 (£5.3m owed by NHS Harrow to NHS Brent) • 2011/12 NW London Challenged Trust Board contributions/utilisation: • Brent contribution – 1% (provided in 10/11) plus £2.8m in 11/12 • Harrow utilisation - £20m support • Use of 2% non-recurrent resource • Harrow £5.3m assumed in initial plan • Balance to be agreed by NHS London /Sector in-year • Contribution from PCTs to London fund to support GP Pathfinder • £3.2m contribution from Brent and Harrow • £2 per head to be returned (est. £700k Brent, £450k Harrow)
Medium Term Financial Strategy • Strategic plan (Jan 10) - set out a five year programme to deliver our vision of making a significant improvement to the health and wellbeing of the people of Brent • The Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS) embedded in the Strategic Plan set out the plan to maintain a sustainable financial position over the period to 2013/14. • The key points were: • do nothing scenario based on historic activity growth rates • £60m efficiency and disinvestment programme over 4 years • strong underlying position means we could aim to deliver this is 11/12 onwards but given the scale and complexity, plan to start delivery in 2010/11 • sustainable plan under all scenarios • non-recurrent investment to support implementation • downside allocation assumed for 11/12 onwards • We refreshed the MTFS projections as part of the CSP review/development of the QIPP in Summer/Autumn 2010 and confirmed that the MTFS projections remained valid
Key Financial Assumptions 2011/12 The financial plan:- • Is consistent with 2011/12 Operating Framework and NHS London guidance, including the impact of : -Tariff changes for 2011/12 -11/12 allocations • Is consistent with NHS NWL financial strategy (JCPCT paper Feb 2011) • Includes an assessment of the outcome on acute and other contract negotiations where these have not yet been concluded • Excludes BCS as a provider as a result of transfer to ICO • Incorporates QIPP plans and Performance Improvement plans • Reflects an outturn based approach to budget setting, including acute contracts • Includes a financial risk assessment, risk mitigation plans and an in-year sub-Cluster contingency plan
2011/12 Budgets Budget Setting Process • The budget setting process has been conducted in accordance with good practice criteria (generated from a combination of Audit Commission recommendations and local additions):- • There has been an agreed budget preparation approach and timetable • The impact of prior year over/underspendings has been reflected in 2011/12 budgets • Operational and financial responsibilities are aligned • Budgets are linked to workforce and activity plans • Budgets are reconciled to the PCT’s cash plan for 2011/12 • Budgets are based on realistic assumptions for inflation and other cost pressures • Budgets include the full year effect of 2010/11 changes • Savings plans have been risk assessed • Investment plans will be subject to Business Case approval as appropriate • Budgets will be appropriately profiled across the financial year • Budgets will be supported by a rigorous sign-off and in-year management regime
2011/12 Budgets Overview • Initial budgets totalling £539.9m are summarised in the next slide • 2011/12 forecast allocation is £551.0m resulting in planned surplus of £11.1m (2%).
2011/12 Budget Summary • Detailed budgets and budget holders on schedule attached
Main Budget Changes – Acute Contracts (1) • Baseline based on 2010/11 outturn adjusted for: • % population growth • Tariff changes – see slide 15 • Demand Management (Urgent Care Centre, STARRs, End of Life, Case Management) – see slide 16 • Sector Commissioning Intentions – see slide 17 • CQUIN continues at 1.5% – see slide 20 • Out of Sector contracts not finalised (risk assessment included in budget together with in-year risks)
Main Budget Changes – Acute Contracts (2)Tariff changes 11/12 – national • Standard national contracts for acute and mental health now incorporating PCT provider arm services • Bespoke contract for the care homes sector now available • National tariff reduction of 1.5% (2.5% inflation less 4% efficiency) • Emergency readmissions within 30 days of discharge following an elective admission not to be charged. All other readmissions within 30 days subject to locally agreed thresholds • Some expansion in scope of tariff for 11/12, including changes to specialised services top ups and HRG4 for A&E • Marginal rate for emergency admissions above baseline maintained • CQUIN to remain at 1.5% (also extended to care homes)
Main Budget Changes – Acute Contracts (3)Demand Management • Total = £6.4m
Main Budget Changes – Acute Contracts (4)Sector Commissioning Intentions • Planned Procedures with a Threshold (PPwT) • In 2010/11 there has been a process to implement systems to better manage requests for and the contracting of PPwTs. Following work by the NW London Clinical Reference Group an extended list has been determined for inclusion in 2011/12 contracts. • The relevant HRGs have been removed from Trust baselines in their entirety. Unless one of the listed procedures has been explicitly approved using the specified process of approval it will not be funded. • Outpatient ratios • Outpatient first to follow up ratios have been revised and applied consistently to providers from April 1st 2011 to achieve progressive improvement by all providers • Day Case/Outpatient ratios • In addition to monitoring day case rates, the Sector is extending this to include procedures undertaken in outpatients leading to achievement of Best Practice ratios for the proportion of procedures carried out in an outpatient setting as opposed to a day case. This recognises that some procedures do need to be undertaken as a day case and incentivises the provision of care in less acute clinical settings where clinically appropriate.
Main Budget Changes – Acute Contracts (5)Sector Commissioning Intentions • Emergency readmissions • The national guidance on this is clear and is spelt out in a letter from David Flory of the 18th February 2011 “there is no discretion about the use to which the savings from not paying for some emergency readmission, accruing within PCTs, should be put. SHAs will be asked to monitor the progress of PCTs in identifying and using this money to develop services to support patients in the 30 day period following discharge. This responsibility will pass, along with the funding, to the acute sector from 1 April 2012…” • Given the need to develop new services to tackle 30 day admissions and the time this will take a phased approach to this issue in NWL has been taken. The precise phasing is subject to agreement but the key impact is the overall in year potential loss of income to acute Trusts. In NWL this is set at 25% of the calculated readmissions value. • Funds will only be paid to Trusts on the basis that both commissioners and Trusts are developing joint plans to create new services aimed at improving services to support patients in the 30 day period post discharge. In the first quarter 100% of one quarter of the total annual calculated figure will be paid to Trusts subject to agreement by 1st July of the joint plan. Over the full year it is expected that Trusts will receive 75% of the annual calculated funding with 25% invested in out of hospital services. These percentages may be varied in year subject to both parties agreement but have been used in setting contract for 2011/12 • Quality metrics and consequence of breaches– within NWL the quality metrics included in acute contracts have been reviewed and financial consequences of breached of some metrics established. See next slide
Main Budget Changes – Acute Contracts – Quality metrics and consequence of breaches(6) Note: also a number of quality metrics for which no consequence of breach
CQUIN – ACUTE CONTRACTS 11/12 • CQUIN payments have been divided into two areas: • National incentive schemes • Regional /Local incentive schemes • National incentive scheme • These remain unchanged from 2010/11 and are: • VTE risk assessment on admission to hospital • Composite indicator on responsiveness to personal needs • London/Local incentive scheme for NWLH • Falls: the total number of falls within NWLHT will be reduced by 25% and the number of those falls resulting in harm to the patient will be reduced by 50% • End of Life Care: the care of end of life patients referred to the specialist palliative care team will be improved through the local implementation of the Department of Health End Of Life Care Strategy’s quality standards. A locally developed and agreed improvement trajectory will be established. • COPD Discharge Care Bundle (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) 75% of patients who are admitted with an acute exacerbation of their COPD will be discharged with a completed discharge care bundle in the required format • Patients seen by a consultant within 12 hours of admission: 75% of patients admitted in an emergency, ether via A&E or directly from the community will be assessed by a consultant within 12 hours.
