3 Offender Health & Military Health Introduction With the abolition of Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) in 2013 the responsibility for the commissioning of prison health and military health services will transfer to the new NHS Commissioning Board (NHSCB). Nationally the Department of Health (DH) has set out the expectations for Strategic Health Authorities (SHA’s) and PCTs to achieving this transition. These include milestones by which a set of actions are to be achieved during 2011/12.
Offender Health Responsibility for commissioning prisoner health services transferred from the Home Office (now the Ministry of Justice) to the Department of Health in 2005 and then to Wakefield District PCT for prison healthcare. Within Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield District Cluster there are two prisons, both in Wakefield District – HMP Wakefield: a high security prison for men located nearby Wakefield city centre, and HMP & YOI New Hall: a medium security prison and young offenders institution for girls and women located near Flockton. Prison Health Commissioning is typified by its complexity, risk, high cost (around £6million), with interdependencies between health and criminal justice systems and the need for transformational change. The prisoner population is over 1,000 prisoners at any one time with a throughput of around 3,000 prisoners per annum, with high levels of health inequalities, prevalence of long term conditions, mental disorder and substance misuse. The programme’s aim is to reduce health inequalities by improving access to health care for prisoners as could be expected in the wider community. It does this by overseeing the implementation of a number of projects and contracts which cover all aspects of health care for prisoners, e.g. primary care, mental health, substance misuse, dental, optical, urgent and nonurgent care, secondary care etc, and also hospital escort and bedwatch management. The key strategic priorities for 11/12 are to fully engage with stakeholders, secure needs assessments, and enable effective contract management in terms of service delivery improvement, relationship management and contract administration. Key challenges include delivering contracts within budget, improving service delivery, a focus on QIPP to improve quality and performance, integrated drug treatment system, new mental health and primary care service provision, and coordinating death in custody investigations. Going forward the NHSCB will be responsible for commissioning Primary Care provision with CCGs responsible for commissioning Secondary Care provision. Military Health Primary Care for Armed Forces personnel is generally the responsibility of the ‘single service primary healthcare organisations’ (Army, Royal Navy, and RAF). This includes both in-house provision and some outsourcing to independent healthcare providers or NHS trusts. Responsibility for secondary care for Armed Forces personnel rests with the NHS for normal elective care, but for specialist secondary care the Defence Medical Service (DMS) has an arrangement with the NHS to pay for this specialist treatment (through direct contracting with the NHS). A key requirement is to ensure that military veterans receive priority access to NHS secondary care for any conditions which are likely to be related to their service, subject to the clinical needs of all patients generally. This means that GPs’ referrals and treatment by secondary care clinicians should prioritise this group of patients where the disorder is related to their service. To enable this, it includes the use of Choose & Book and an ongoing programme for the direct transfer of medical records to GPs when individuals leave the Armed Forces. The basic principle for Armed Forces’ dependents and veterans is that generally they are the responsibility of the NHS in the same way as normal residents. Where a member of the Armed Forces is referred for NHS secondary care via a standard NHS pathway, including non-elective care, the PCT where the MoD medical centre of the resident Armed Forces population is located then that PCT should fund this care. The MoD is required to fund secondary care services where the requirement varies from the standard NHS pathways, i.e. either the 5
treatment requested or for specific management requirements, e.g. fast-track care or nonstandard treatment. Commissioning responsibility for Military Health is destined for the NHS Commissioning Board (NHSCB). Statutory duties for this are subject to passage of the Health & Social Care Bill through Parliament and will mean that current PCT responsibilities in relation to healthcare for HM Forces and their families (who are registered to MoD medical centres) will be transferred to the NHSCB who may in turn delegate some of these to Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). The NHSCB will receive the secondary and community allocation for resident Armed Forces and the full allocation for families registered at military medical practices. This allocation will be managed collaboratively between the NHSCB and the MoD (Joint Medical Command). To manage this change programme all regions are required to establish an Armed Forces Network (AFN) with representation from the SHA, the Armed Forcesâ€™ Defence Medical Service and NHS PCT Clusters. The AFN for Yorkshire & Humber region is chaired by Chris Long, Chief Executive of the Humber Cluster, and with representation from each PCT Cluster in the region. The AFN and its work programme are still at an early stage of development so the workstreams are somewhat unclear, although the milestones set out in the Shared Operating Model for PCT Clusters are a helpful start for PCT Cluster leads. These milestones have been mapped against the Calderdale, Kirklees & Wakefield District Cluster Partnership Responsibilities and Programme Framework to enable progress. The priority for Clusters is that they will need to take account of the current responsibilities particularly during 2012/13 and the requirement to ensure that the responsibilities of Priority Treatment are delivered.
4 Commissioning Support Offer The development of our NHS Calderdale Kirklees and Wakefield District commissioning support offer is progressing within the given timescales. Draft service specifications are being written collaboratively across the Cluster by service leads and these will form part of the draft commissioning support offer and will be collated by the end of the month. In turn, these will inform our draft Prospectus describing to CCGs the range of services we will potentially deliver to them should they choose to purchase them from us. The timescale for the development of the draft Prospectus is driven by the SHA and a first draft copy is also needed by the end of October 2011. As part of staff engagement, a survey of their views on commissioning support has been completed and a total of 80 responses were received. These responses are being used to help inform the development of the Prospectus. On 3rd October 2011 there was a Cluster strategy event with staff, during which part of the day was used to update managers on the latest commissioning support guidance and thinking and to start some development work on the completion of service specifications. Monthly staff briefings are also being used in each part of the Cluster to regularly provide an opportunity for questions and answers on this important piece of work. In addition to this, a regular update is provided in the three Cluster newsletters and a dedicated CSO page is going to be provided on the intranet by the end of this month so staff can easily access the latest documents and news as it develops. Draft service specifications are being written collaboratively across the Cluster by service leads and these will form part of the draft commissioning support offer and will be collated buy the end of the month. In turn these will inform our draft prospectus describing to CCGs the range of services we will potentially deliver to them should they choose to purchase them from us. 6
The timescale of development of the draft prospectus is driven by the SHA and a first draft copy is also needed by the end of October 2011. The draft model suggests that many Commissioning Support Services should be delivered at scale, i.e. across West Yorkshire. Discussions with the Bradford, Airedale & Leeds Cluster have reached the agreement to produce one Prospectus for a West Yorkshire Commissioning Support Offer. External support has been offered by the SHA through Cameron Ward, who is advising the development of Commissioning Support in the North East Cluster and the first meeting of a small project group was held on 17th October to take this work forward. A consultation document on ‘Developing Commissioning Support’ has been issued and is subject to change following feedback from the NHS. Some of the highlights include: The proposal to extend the period of NHS development and this may be achieved by the NHS Commissioning Board (NHSCB) ‘hosting’ some commissioning support from 2013 until no later than 2016; During the hosting period, it is proposed that commissioning support would operate at arm’s length from the NHSCB; and When CCGs are ready to go to the market, they will do so through formal procurement. Until then they will use NHSCB hosted commissioning support. Finally, in recognition of the size and importance of developing the Commissioning Support Offer (CSO), a full time Project Manager, Rachel Spilsbury, has been seconded internally to lead this piece of work for the CKW Cluster and to ensure all the transition milestones are delivered. The key milestones are outlined below.
Key proposed milestones going forward By December 2011
Checkpoint 1 (environmental)
All prospectuses tested through 360 review
By March 2012 Outline Business Plans reviewed
Checkpoint 2 (commercial)
By September 2012 Full Business Plans assessed

5 Developing Clinical Commissioning Groups – towards authorisation update report The ambition is to create an NHS rooted in the three principles of giving patients more power, focusing on healthcare outcomes and quality standards, and giving frontline professionals much greater freedom and a strong leadership role. CCGs are at the heart of these proposals. 7
Developing Clinical Commissioning Groups â€“ towards authorisation (published by DH, September 2011) sets out a process by which CCGs will be assessed as ready to take on responsibility for health care budgets for their local communities. Principles for authorisation The DH has developed a set of principles to guide the development and implementation of the authorisation process to ensure it is consistent, sufficiently robust, adds value and sets the tone for a positive relationship between CCGs and the NHSCB. Once the NHSCB is formally established it will consider applications for the establishment and authorisation of CCGs. The authorisation process is a stage of continuous improvement which includes the following steps: Initial development phase; Application; Authorisation process; and, Annual assessment. The focus of authorisation The authorisation process should support and reinforce the work needed to create excellent CCGs so the content of the authorisation process is built around 6 domains. These are: 1. A strong clinical and multi-professional focus which brings real added value; 2. Meaningful engagement with patients, carers and their communities; 3. Clear and credible plans which continue to deliver the QIPP challenge within financial resources in line with national requirements and local joint health and wellbeing strategies; 4. Proper constitutional and governance arrangements, with the capacity and capability to deliver all their duties and responsibilities including financial control, as well as effectively commission all the services for which they are responsible; 5. Collaborative arrangements for commissioning for commissioning with other CCGs, local authorities and the NHSCB as well as the appropriate Commissioning Support; 6. Great leaders who individually and collectively can make a real difference. Commissioning Support Key to the authorisation of CCGs are the Clusterâ€™s plans for a commissioning support offer and what commissioning support the CCGs want to share or buy in for the non-clinical aspects of commissioning. Commissioning Support is likely to be the single biggest issue for CCGs and the Cluster in terms of the development of the new system (see full update report at section 4 above). The steps to authorisation Road map to authorisation is based on a phased approach with the first phase being a risk assessment of the proposed configuration of the CCG. The second would be the development path which is the period the emerging CCG can gain experience and build up a track record. The final stage is the full authorisation process where CCGs will need to apply to the NHSCB to be established and authorised. 8
Evidence for authorisation The formal application to grant establishment of a CCG will have three aspects: first, will be their submission of evidence to demonstrate capability across each of the domains; second, where the NHSCB satisfies itself about the validity of the evidence submitted; and third, where the Board draws together all its background knowledge and information for discussion with the prospective CCG and any local stakeholders the Board believes should be involved in further assessment. Outcomes to authorisation The Bill refers to the establishment of CCGs and provides that a CCG can be established with or without conditions depending on the extent to which the requirements for establishment have been met. There are three outcomes to authorisation: 1. Shadow CCGs established but not authorised to undertake commissioning; 2. Authorised with conditions; and, 3. Fully authorised. Roles in the authorisation process The Cluster will prepare and support emerging CCGs across the patch through to authorisation. The Cluster will not be involved in decisions about authorisation of local CCGs though. The SHA Cluster will oversee and manage the flow of applications for authorisation ahead of the establishment of the NHSCB. Establishment and authorisation can only be undertaken by the NHSCB itself. There will be a role for shadow Health and Wellbeing Boards in the authorisation process Timeline toward authorisation October â€“ December 2011
Invitation to participate in risk assessment of the proposed configuration Undertaken by SHA Cluster working with emerging CCGs Will focus on sign-up from member practices, geography and impact of proposed size
Preparation for authorisation Build track record (increased delegation, leading 2012/13 planning) Build partnerships, engagement and collaborative arrangements Design proposed organisational form, decision making, governance
Application to the NHSCB for establishment and authorisation Submit application
Formal authorisation process Demonstrate capability across the 6 domains 9
360 degree assessment to ensure views of partners are captured April 2013
All of England covered by established CCGs (vast majority should be fully authorised)
CKW Cluster support for CCG development toward authorisation Locally, CCGs are being supported by the Cluster to develop organisation development (OD) plans utilising where appropriate the national tools: National Pathfinder Learning Network; Self-assessment diagnostic tool; and, National Leadership Development Framework. A scheme of delegation is under development to give CCG’s responsibility and accountability for commissioning decisions and use of resources to enable them to build a track record of delivery. Also in development is an ‘authorisation checklist’ which will be used to support CCGs to make progress towards authorisation. A schedule of board-to-board ‘confirm-andchallenge’ meetings between individual CCG Boards and the Cluster Board is being organised as part of this work.
6 Recommendations Members are asked to: 1. Note the report and progress being made against the key transition areas the Cluster Partnership is responsible for; and 2. Approve recommendation for a single Commissioning Support Prospectus to be developed across West Yorkshire.

2. Commissioning Development Primary Care Existing primary care contracts have been catalogued; now awaiting Commissioning national template for completion. The Cluster is working through the Y&H Specialised Commissioning Group and has identified all staff currently involved in directly commissioning specialised services (specialised commissioning team). A programme of support is in place to assist these staff through the transition to National Commissioning Board. During August the PCT finance/contracting teams are working with SCG to separate specialised and non specialised elements of activity in every Specialised acute /mental health contract according to planned activity for 2011/12. Commissioning Clusters are currently working with SCT to identify all services that are not within the specialised services definition but that have been commissioned on a collaborative basis through SCG. This work will be completed by end of September and migrate to Cluster/CCG responsibility. Discussions with CCGs are planned in November to determine how these services will be commissioned in the future. No specific risks identified. When work with SCG completed on non-specialised services that have Above consortia been collaboratively regionally commissioned by end September level meetings will be set up with CCGs to discuss future commissioning commissioning arrangements. No specific risks identified. Direct Milestone not due; no specific risks identified. Commissioning Cancer Drug No specific risks identified.

Confirmed that prison health needs assessments for both HMP Wakefield and HMP & YOI New Hall have recently been completed and are assessed as being fit for purpose for use in 2012/13 commissioning round. Key thematic areas from the new HNAs are: HMP Wakefield: covers the areas of general health and in addition focuses on three areas identified by the Offender Health Strategic Partnership Board: BME (black and ethnic minority) groups Learning Disability Older prisoners HMP & YOI New Hall: also covers the areas of general health and in addition focuses on four areas identified by the Offender Health Strategic Partnership Board: Learning Disability Learning Difficulty and low educational attainment Sexual Health Maternity Services Offender Health: flows of secondary care activity usage have been identified and there are a number of key issues arising for the commissioning round. The most significant issue, and identified as the funding and activity for prisoner hospital escorts and bedwatches. This has been a high risk from the outset when responsibility for funding these was transferred to PCTs. For example, the outturn for 10/11 was £318k, which was £120k overspent compared to a £334k overspend in 09/10. For 11/12 the forecast overspend for escorts & bedwatches is £150k. Mitigation SHA is aware of policy problems re: prisoner hospital escorts and bedwatches Both have been identified but identification of secondary care contract activity linked to prison health is well advanced and that linked to Military Health is still in its infancy. Prison Health secondary care contract activity: 1. Hospital escorts and bedwatches contract with HMP Wakefield for all secondary care planned and unplanned care; 2. Telemedicine healthcare interventions contract with Airedale NHS Trust; 3. Dental services, Podiatry, Physiotherapy, Respiratory contracts with Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. Mitigation awaiting national templates for NHSCB and CCG contract forms
Clusters to have identified secondary care activity usage by armed forces from new data flows and use it to inform commissioning plans Clusters to have separately identified military health secondary contract activity by services, speciality/HRG value in order to allow 12/13 contracts to separately identify shadow NHSCB and CCG responsibilities Negotiations start for separate shadow NHSCB and CCG contracts Clusters to have completed cataloguing existing contracts for prison and custodial health and offender health according to a national template setting out the broad contents of the contracts and their state of readiness for handover to the NHSCB.
Military Health: to date it has not been possible to identify flows of secondary care activity usage, although there has been progress to identify and map numbers of veterans across the patch. Work is in development to investigate flows of secondary care activity usage. Mitigation awaiting national templates for NHSCB and CCG contract forms
Work is underway â€“ but no military health secondary contract activity identified across this Cluster to date; SHA is expecting a nil return from Clusters. Mitigation Cluster lead working with other Cluster leads and SHA to determine most effective approach to identify secondary care usage for this patient group
Activity modelling for CCG contracts due to commence; templates completed and submitted for DH Offender Health / SHA OH leads, i.e. CD39 submitted. Mitigation Cluster lead working with other Cluster leads and SHA to separate shadow NHSCB and CCG contracts We are still awaiting national templates so Amber. Key contract weaknesses to be addressed in the 2012/13 round are: 1. Hospital Escorts & Bedwatches Contract with HMP Wakefield (SLA) significantly overspending; 2. In Patients Service Contract (NHS Standard Community Contract) with HMP Wakefield â€“ notice likely to be served, or notice for a significant contract variation, as service is not fit-forpurpose; 3. Close Supervision Centre Contract with Humber NHS Foundation Trust (SLA) â€“ notice to be served as service is not fit-for-purpose (in confidence as not yet given). Mitigation awaiting national templates to set out the broad contents of the contracts and their state of readiness for handover to the NHSCB
As a result of the success of the Integrated Offender Management schemes in the region and the effectiveness of Police/health partnerships West Yorkshire Police have been awarded early adopter status, by the Department of Health, to scope out how custody healthcare can best be provided. This is in preparation for the likely future transfer of custody health care commissioning from the police to the NHS.
