Walk in centre

“Provide clear, simple and
concise information outside
of the surgery…educate and
empower those who are
capable of helping themselves
and free up valuable GP time
and services for illness,
disease and needs that
GPs can help with…”
“You have to book an
appt on the morning of
that day, ringing from
8am and then when you
get through there aren’t
any appointments left
and you are told to start
all over again
tomorrow”
“The walk in centre at AVH is invaluable. I have chronic asthma and heart failure.
On 2 occasions I have started with chest infections on Saturdays, I was able to go
the walk in centre and get antibiotics. If I had to wait until Monday I would
probably have ended up in hospital.”
“Having children, like most people it is
important that they can be seen that day……”

What You Said
What Matters Most to Local People?
Being able to see their own GP
Being able to see a GP without making an appointment – especially same day
urgent appointments
GP appointments available at wider range of times (evenings and weekends)
GP services offered at a location which is easy for them to get to by car or public
transport
GP services where they are treated with empathy, dignity and respect
What You Said
What Concerns Local People the Most?
The difficulty of accessing GP appointments at their own practice – especially same
day urgent appointments
Fears that patients might not be able to get same day urgent appointments if the HAC
were to close
Concerns about where unregistered patients would need to go to access GP services
if the HAC were to close
Concerns that patients might have to go to A&E or the Urgent Care Centre in Burnley
instead
Concerns about the longer term future of Accrington Victoria Community Hospital as
an NHS facility
Our key challenges as a CCG
What type of service(s) do we need to commission in Hyndburn to ensure that
patients are able to get GP appointments when they most need them?
Which of these offers the best value for NHS money?
How do we deliver the required CCG cost savings of £33m over the next three years?
How do we ensure fairness in GP access across all 5 CCG localities?
How can we ensure that decisions about the future of the services currently provided
at Accrington Victoria Community Hospital are made in collaboration with our other
NHS partners - e.g. NHS England and East Lancashire Hospital Trust?

Key Facts
5 year contract November 2009 – October 2014. The current contract is with ELMS, an
independently run social enterprise
2 elements:
• Unregistered patients on a walk-in basis 8am to 8.30pm, 7 days a week, 365 days per
year (commissioning responsibility with NHS EL CCG)
• A GP Practice with a registered patient list size of 1358 (commissioning responsibility
with the Area Team at NHS England)
High levels of patient satisfaction with GP walk-in service
Patients registered with the GP practice at the HAC
Area Team is commencing patient/stakeholder engagement process in November
Briefing was submitted to Overview and Scrutiny last week
Options currently identified include re-commissioning a GP practice through a
transparent procurement process or dispersing the patient list to nearby practices.
No decision has been taken by the Area Team – this will be made following patient
and public engagement process.
Whatever decision is taken, patients will be able to register with a GP practice.
Any decision taken will have regard to capacity within existing local GP practices, the
possible impact on other NHS services and the NHS health economy as a whole.
NHS EL CCG has to make cost savings in the region of £33m over
the next 3 years

Options
1
Keep the status quo and tender a service in its current format
2
Tender the current service as a fixed price contract rather than a fee per attendance
3
Let the current contract expire without a replacement service
4
A walk-in service to remain, with opening times and access limited to hours outside GP
core contract hours. This would be funded at a fixed price. Options include:
a) Evenings
6.30pm – 8.00pm
b) Weekends 8.00am – 8.00pm
5
Commission individual practices or groups of practices working together to provide
extended hours to offer guaranteed extra access. This would be funded at a fixed price
and apply across East Lancashire. Options include:
a) Evenings
6.30pm – 8.00pm
b) Weekends 8.00am – 8.00pm
6
Decommission the GP walk-in service and extend the contract for the Minor Injuries Unit
(MIU) to include minor illness (walk-in, nurse led, fixed price contract)
Things we will take into account when making our final decision
The needs of local people to access GP appointments when they most need them especially same day urgent appointments
The views of patients and stakeholder groups in Hyndburn about the types of GP
services they would prefer
The conclusions of the recent Monitor Report on NHS Walk in Centres
The cost, value for money and affordability of future GP service provision
The need for the CCG to make cost savings of £33m over the next three years
Fairness of primary care access and provision across East Lancashire
NB. Any GP members on our Governing Body who may have a conflict of interest in relation to this issue, will be required to declare this interest in
keeping with the rules of the CCG Constitution. The final decision on any recommendation made by the CCG Governing Body, will be the responsibility of
the CCG Remuneration Committee which does not have any GP members.
