Performance Report Matt England introduced a report which provided a summary of current performance issues, including referral to treatment (RTT), Accident and Emergency (A&E) and eliminating mixed sex accommodation (EMSA). The report also provided a focus on two key performance indicators relating to stroke care. The second part of the report provided an exception report of indicators with performance issues. Attached as appendix A to the report was a full suite of performance indicators. The report advised that there are two key performance indicators (KPIs) which related to stroke care at the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust (MYHT): ď‚ˇ
Patients who have spent more than 90% of their stay in hospital on a stroke unit: Target >80%
Percentage of Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA) patients scanned and treated within 24 hours (non admitted): Target > 60%
It was acknowledged that historically MYHT had struggled to achieve these KPIs. The Trust had developed a business case designed to address the 6
poor performance in these areas and provide a Hyper Acute Stroke Unit. It was noted that stroke and TIA performance had been added to the Mid Yorkshire Contract Management Group as a standing item and was also monitored on a monthly basis by the Executive Contract Board and Quality Board. The Finance and Performance Group would also continue to monitor and discuss these areas as part of a suite of other KPIs and would provide regular reports to the CCE. The report also outlined detailed performance information relating to the following areas:
Healthcare Associated Infections Eliminating Mixed Sex Accommodation 18 Week Referral to Treatment A&E Waiting Time Standards TIA
It was noted that Matt England would be writing to Steven Eames, on Dr Earnshaw’s behalf to invite him to Board to discuss performance issues at MYHT.

0-19 Public Health, Early Intervention and Family Support Service; Health Visitor and Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) investment and development plan YEAR TWO. Ian Carr introduced a report which outlined a proposal for the second year of investment (2012/13) of a four year plan aimed at increasing the number of Health Visitors in post to the capacity as required by the Department of Health (DH) and recommended in the Health Visitor implementation plan 2011-2015. The request, from Jo Webster, was for additional funding for year two of the scheme at an amount of £400,000. It was noted that year one funding had realised a cost saving of at least 50% of the initial funding as the funding resource was only released on recruitment of the intended posts. The request for further investment was to achieve the required capacity of an additional 33.1 whole time equivalent (WTE) health visitors by 2015. The second year of investment would provide a further 8 WTE health visitors. The CCE was advised that there was a high risk that the target of 106.2 WTE may not be achieved by 2015 due to the fact that there were insufficient students undertaking health visiting training. Commissioners and providers were exploring recruitment and training models and working
closely with Huddersfield and Leeds University and provider human resource departments. It was noted that under Standing Financial Instructions ratification of approval of this scheme by the CCE would be required by the Chief Executive and Director of Finance of the PCT Cluster. It was RESOLVED that: i)
funding for the second year of a four year investment plan be approved, subject to ratification by the Chief Executive and Director of Finance of the PCT Cluster.
Request to the Clinical Commissioning Executive to support the approach and business case for the implementation of a new intermediate care delivery model for the inpatients service at HMP Wakefield augmented by a telemedicine solution. Danny Alba introduced a report which advised that a new delivery model for the Inpatients Service at HMP Wakefield would realise a number of key benefits, with the most important being the introduction of intermediate care augmented by telemedicine, thereby reducing current reliance on hospital secondary care for high security prisoners and the high costs this currently incurred. Attached as appendix 1 to the report was a business case for this proposal. The tender for a new inpatients service, for which Jo Webster was seeking support, was anticipated to commence from the second week in April. The value of the contract to let was a maximum of £400k /£1,200k for a three year contract. The telemedicine proposals would be deployed from the end of June 2012 and is to be funded by the Regional Investment Fund at a cost of £59k. Outlined within the report were a number of key risks, contracting issues and project milestones. Jo Webster advised the CCE that under Standing Financial Instructions approval of these proposals would be required from the NHS Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield District Board. It was RESOLVED that i)

the proposals be recommended to the NHS Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield District Board for approval.
Proposed Extension of COPD End of Life Hospice Pilot Business Case Lisa Chandler presented a business case, on behalf of Jo Webster, to request additional funding for a 12 month extension of the pilot period of the COPD end of life project in two local hospices. The purpose of the extension was to refine the model of service delivery and to obtain further information regarding a reduction in the use of unplanned care. The Clinical Commissioning Executive was advised that in 2010/11 the PCT funded a COPD end of life project with two local hospices. The aim of this was to address inequalities through a half day a week COPD disease specific group. To date the service had demonstrated statistically significant improvement in patient outcome measures. The report advised that changes were proposed to the organisation of the service in order to improve attendance by patients. It was suggested that the service would run over 8 months and would be suspended during winter when bad weather affected the health and attendance of patients. It was anticipated that these changes would see a reductions of places on the scheme to 60 per year and also a reduction in cost. There was currently no tariff based payment which could be used. For this reason the costings were for a block contract. In 2010/11 the cost of the programme was £50k and the costs for continuing the service over 8 months would be £27,970. It was RESOLVED that
the amendments made to the organisation for the service be approved;
the additional funding to continue the pilot for a further 12 months be approved.
Carers Breaks Provision (Recurrent) Elaine McHale left the meeting during consideration of this item. Phil Smedley introduced a report, on behalf of Jo Webster, which advised that a joint fund of £400k, provided equally between health and social care, had been proposed specifically to increase the availability of breaks for carers of adults for 2012/13 by the Joint Strategic Commissioning Board (JSCB). It was proposed that the additional funding would be used to increase the availability of existing schemes through existing Wakefield Council contractual arrangements providing 450 Mytime grants and a 100% increase in Shared Lives to approximately 7000 nights per annum. This would be governed through the JSCB.
The CCE were advised that JSCB had determined that the commissioning of these proposals were dependent on a recurrent budget being identified. The CCE agreed to the funding on a non recurrent basis, but noted that this could be examined further in six months time. It was RESOLVED that
a non recurrent budget for the provision of carers breaks in partnership with Wakefield Council be approved;
consideration be given in six months time to funding this proposal on a recurrent basis.
IM&T Procurement (Intradoc) Cat de Jonge introduced a report which advised that following sanction by the Clinical Commissioning Executive a survey had been undertaken with member practices about the future of the Intradoc247 system. It was reported that the survey had underlined variation in usage of the system and generally where a practice had an intranet site uptake was lower. The survey results had also highlighted dependence and use of the PCTs intranet site. A collation of the survey results was attached as appendix A. A draft specification was attached at appendix B and a project plan was attached at appendix C. It was highlighted that the specification would be passed to member practices for their comments. The CCE noted that the proposal was for a one year term in the first instance. Jo Webster advised that she would discuss with Matt England seeking approval from NHS North of England for a longer contract (three years). The CCE agreed to move forward on the basis of the contract being a maximum of three years and a minimum of one. It was RESOLVED that
