Commissioning Intentions
Sarah Casemore
Deputy Director of Clinical
[email protected]
These intentions span across the
Transforming Elderly Care, Planned Care, Unplanned Care,
Mental Health and Learning Disabilities and End of Life
Care priorities of the NHS G&W CCG.
They are high level and depend upon clear and detailed plans
being agreed through the Clinical Commissioning Committee.
The NHS Guildford and Waverley CCG (NHS G&W CCG) has
developed commissioning intentions for 2014/15.
These commissioning intentions extend beyond those agreed
in 2013/14 to ensure that the delivery of Quality, Innovation,
Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) enables the NHS G&W
CCG to establish a sustainable financial footing into the future.
The agreed commissioning intentions are:• Out of Hours (OOH) procurement aimed at integrating OOH with our
agreed clinical pathways
• Enhance the Referral Support Service to ensure right time, right
place, right person for management of all patients
• Review internal referrals within acute Hospitals and eliminate those
where GPs could manage the patient
• Incorporate telephone follow ups rather than face to face clinic
• Incorporate community clinics into specialties such as dermatology,
gynaecology and ophthalmology
• Targeted stop smoking interventions to specific populations
• Implement structured education and support to clinicians, for long
term conditions such as diabetes
Commissioning Intentions Continued
• Increase access through Improving Access to
Psychological Therapies (IAPT) to 15% by April
• Redesign rehabilitation services across mental
health and learning disability services to ensure
care and support is provided in people
• Improved liaison psychiatry at Royal Surrey
County Hospital (RSCH) 8am-8pm 7 days a week
• Implement new palliative care bed provision in
