Text of "ive got 7 minutes" results of research with VCS about working with CCGs

  • 1. Results of survey of third sector organisations views of working with CCGs B&W Consulting Liz Barker Kirsty Woodard

2. In 2013 we asked 70 voluntary & community organisations the following questions 1. Are you hoping that the CCG will commission services from your organisation? 2. What services that you currently provide do you think your CCG would be most interested in commissioning? 3. How optimistic are you that CCGs will commission your services? 4. what do you think are the main barriers to CCGs buying services from the voluntary sector? 5. what support do you need in order for CCGs to buy or commission your services? 3. The key findings are.. The overwhelming majority (over 90%) of VCS hope that CCGs will purchase or commission services from them Most VCS believed that once CCGs knew what services they provided, CCGs would commission them 43% thought the biggest barrier to CCGs commissioning from them was that CCGs didnt know what VCS did Support needs were spread out quite evenly but generally people felt the biggest support they needed was gaining access to CCG commissioners 4. People said preventing ill health is difficult to prove and the NHS seems only willing to pay for services where they can monitor the precise savings in terms of reduced hospital admissions/readmissions; reduced time in hospital The CCG has carried forward a contract we had with the PCT, however, we are concerned that they do not fully understand our capabilities and offer and are concerned that this small contract may be reviewed and withdrawn without them fully understanding our potential they have commissioned a home from hospital service from us We have limited access to CCG at the moment and feel that they may not be aware of the range of services we provide. It seems very difficult for us to reach the CCG I think that largely only those CCGs which have picked up social care responsibilities will commission anything much from the voluntary sector. These are very few 5. But CCGs 1. Dont generally know a lot about voluntary and community service provision 2. Need to know how VCS services will help them achieve the outcomes in the NHS framework and the Better Care Fund. 3. Really need to save money 4. After the Francis report, need upfront assurances that VCS services are safe, well managed, high quality and most importantly, gives patients a good experience of care 6. What people in the NHS said I have 7 minutes with a patient, I dont have time to flick through directories to see what the voluntary sector do. If its not on my IT system, I wont know about it Its mostly day centres and befriending isnt it? Thats social care not health The voluntary sector arent on our radar as far as commissioning is concerned I know they do great things but can they deliver the scale we need? Im not sure they can 7. What do VCS organisations need to do? 1. Explain what you do in ways that mean something to the NHS 2. Show how you will help the NHS meet its targets in the NHS Outcomes Framework and Better Care Fund 3. Show your costs in comparison to the NHS: use the PSSRU data 4. Demonstrate how you ensure your services are well managed, high quality and most importantly give patients a good experience of care 8. Are you hoping the CCG will commission you services ? 9. What services that you currently provide do you think your CCG would be most interested in commissioning? 10. How optimistic are you that CCGs will commission your services? 11. What do you think are the main barriers to CCGs buying services from the voluntary sector? 12. What support do you need for CCGs to buy or commission your services? 13.
