2. Minutes and actions from the meeting held on 4 May 2011. 2.1 Minutes Notes of the last meeting were agreed as a true and accurate record. 2.2 Actions point brought forward Action: Any feedback to Pat Andrewartha before 3 June 2011 in respect of the job description for a Programme Manager circulated by Mike Edmundson. 3. Matters Arising It was agreed by WYCOM to work together as West Yorkshire for ‘111’ and Mike would work out the next action to take this forward.


Mike gave an update around the Paediatric Cardiac Surgery Review stating that the regional consultation event had taken place with two sessions during the day in Leeds. Issues had been raised, including the robustness of the consultation process and one of the concerns that had emerged was the undertaking of the Health Impact Assessment after the consultation period had commenced. Cathy Edwards informed SCG that concerns had been raised over the Scotland population and there was potential they could travel to the Newcastle centre. This would mean unmanageable numbers as the Scotland population had not been used in the original population projections. A report on the consultation is to be produced and will be sent to the OSCs who have a second opportunity to give their views. The group discussed the idea of working together on QIPP and that previously this had been discussed and the reaction was mixed. It was noted that to re-design engagement with GP’s and providers would be needed. Action and agreement would be needed before April 2012. It was agreed that this would be picked up in the workshop in the afternoon session of this meeting. Matt updated that he was not in a position to give a full update on Familial Hypercholesterolaemia and a paper would be available for the next meeting. 4. OER Update and Impact of System Wide Efficiencies It was noted that all acute providers are sited on the OER project but had a difference been made. It was reported that some providers were battling to make slots available due to capacity and demand. It was also said that more services were due to be added but no plan to date to add these to the register due to capacity issues. The main issue is to get the directory of service correct if not patients may be referred to the wrong service and this would mean a re-referral by their GP. Action: Gulnaz to be asked to August WYCOM meeting to present statistics on OER and any analysis data she can share with us. 5. Vascular services review implementation plans Implementation plan draft copy was acknowledged. It was agreed that 3 monthly updates at WYCOM are required and should a matter arise before WYCOM this is to be brought to the attention of Ann and Mike. Action: Amanda to add to log. 6. YCN It was reported that due to the linking of York and Scarborough Hospital there is a potential for a decrease in activity to LTHT which would have a financial impact on Bexley Wing. 2

A meeting was to take place regarding patient flows but no further details were available at this time. Action: Sean to update at the next meeting. Carol reported that the 62 day wait was a problem and the target could not be met. Action: Carol to circulate the action plan to commissioners that needs to be discussed at Contracting. Action: Carol to check that all PCT’s have representation at the YCN Board meeting. 7. Any other business None reported.
