Key messages from the Joined Up Care Derbyshire March 2019 Board meeting

  1. Shared commitment to system working following Leadership OD session

All partners of Joined Up Care Derbyshire have committed to a different approach and way of working; this will be based around the development and implementation of a single plan which is supported by 2019/20 contracts, which equitably share risk between providers and commissioners. This approach will underpin system transformation and will rapidly allow resource and effort to move away from traditional transactional approaches to supporting the delivery of the ‘triple aim’ in Derbyshire.


Integrating our transformation and cost reduction plans and aligning contracts and financial risk share arrangements around them, signals a very real and shared commitment to the truly person centred system working that our Joined Up Care Derbyshire Programme set out to achieve. This will have a significant impact on the way in which we think about and manage our relationships and transactions with partners across the system, working in line with the JUC principles we have previously all developed to deliver the triple aim.


  1. Place Based Resource Consumption modelling

The Joined Up Care Derbyshire Board received a presentation on progress to understand how we use population health information to help us target resources in the most effective way to improve outcomes for our patients.  In particular, this will help us to identify and help manage high usage patients, but also allow us to better integrate care and think more broadly about health and wellbeing and standardising crucial elements of care including care planning and coordination.


  1. Refresh of the STP plan

Every Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) and Integrated Care System (ICS) to develop five-year Long Term Plan implementation plans, covering the period to 2023/24 by Autumn 2019.  In Derbyshire, this will be a refresh of the plan we submitted in 2016 and not a re-write.  We will be building on what we learned in 2016 and retaining everything that holds true, ensuring that we also incorporate emerging priorities from the NHS Long Term Plan. In addition, we will seek to include a focus on population outcomes and the wider determinants of health, such as housing, education and air pollution management.  We will start the refresh by reviewing the existing case for change and testing the models of care during April and May.  During the summer we will finalise our refreshed plans and this will  involve a significant programme of engagement with staff, patients and wider stakeholders.
