39 Minutes of the Previous Meeting held on 21st September, 2017 pdf icon PDF 78 KB

Minutes:

Consideration was given to the minutes of the previous meeting of the Health Select Commission held on 21st September, 2017.  Members noted that:-

 

Arising from Minute No.26 - LGA prevention sessions

New dates were to be arranged in early January due to a clash with a planning event in November.

 

Arising from Minute No.28 - Sepsis Care Pathway

The Rotherham Foundation Trust (TRFT) was working to review issues relating to the Sepsis Pathway, which was a national pathway.  TRFT were conducting a service review of the current Care Co-ordination Centre (CCC) Service to ensure it was fit for purpose in co-ordinating care and providing robust and safe alternative levels of care.

 

Arising from Minute No.29 - Patient Records

Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber NHS Trust (RDaSH) were moving to a single patient record system, Systm1, which would be implemented in Rotherham in April 2018.  A key part of the implementation plan was to reduce paper based processes and standardise unnecessary variation. 

 

The CCC would be using the templates developed for the Doncaster single point of access to support both physical and mental health referrals and triage and reduce duplication and wasted activity.

 

Arising from Minute No.30 - Prescriptions

A response was awaited from the Pharmacy at TRFT.

 

Following the HSC meeting the following response was received from the Chief Pharmacist at TRFT:-

 

The Trust already had the ability to prescribe on FP10 prescriptions (the green prescriptions that people get from their GP) so that the prescription could be taken to any community pharmacy to get the medicines dispensed, without the need to develop a new form.  Currently these FP10 prescription pads were not available in all areas and using them would mean the Trust incurred additional costs.  This might be offset by additional bed capacity and activity.

 

Arising from Minute No.31 - Ambulance Standards

Members who had submitted questions for Yorkshire Ambulance Service to be asked through the Yorkshire & Humber Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee were thanked.

 

Resolved:- That the minutes of the previous meeting, held on 21st September, 2017, be approved as a correct record.

15 Minutes of the Previous Meeting held on 15th June, 2017 pdf icon PDF 63 KB

Minutes:

Consideration was given to the minutes of the previous meeting of the Health Select Commission held on 15th June, 2017.  Members noted that with regard to Minute No. 6 the text under key messages should say:-

 

-       Older people play a significant role as care givers

 

Arising from Minute No. 8 Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (JHOSC) for the Commissioners Working Together Programme, the Scrutiny Officer provided the following update:

 

Children’s Surgery and Anaesthesia

The Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups approved the preferred option for the reconfiguration proposals for children’s surgery and anaesthesia on 28th June.  This proposal was for three hubs - Doncaster Royal Infirmary, Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Pinderfields General Hospital in Wakefield to provide out of hours, emergency surgery for certain sub-specialties. 

 

Further work on patient numbers showed that this would impact on a relatively small number of children, with the majority of surgical procedures carried out locally.  From a total of approximately 11,000 surgical procedures each year, it would affect between 65 and 106 p.a. across the whole area (approximately 14 in Rotherham).

 

There were no cost savings with the proposal but rather investment was required for ambulance transfers and for the Managed Clinical Network which would organise and sustain service provision across the area through workforce planning and training etc.

 

The JHOSC would be meeting on 31st July, 2017 to discuss implementation and future scrutiny.  There would also be an update on timescales for a decision on the proposals for Hyper Acute Stroke, which was likely to be in the autumn following further work on developing the business case, on costs, workforce implications and wider implications for partners.

 

Resolved:- That the minutes of the previous meeting, held on 15th June, 2017, be approved as a correct record.

Meeting: 27/10/2016 - Health Select Commission (Item 42)

42 Minutes of the Previous Meeting held on 22nd September, 2016 pdf icon PDF 112 KB

Minutes:

The minutes of the previous meeting of the Health Select Commission held on 22nd September, 2016, were noted.

 

Arising from Minute No. 32 (Commissioners Working Together Programme) it was noted that the third paragraph should read “options appraisals ….” and not “operations appraisals”.

Meeting: 22/09/2016 - Health Select Commission (Item 30)

30 Minutes of the Previous Meeting held on 20th July, 2016 pdf icon PDF 103 KB

Minutes:

The minutes of the previous meeting of the Health Select Commission held on 17th March, 2016, were noted.

 

Arising from Minute No. 18 (Transforming Rotherham Adult (18+) Mental Health Services), it was noted that proposals for the Adult and Older Persons Mental Health model would be submitted to the RDaSH Board at the end of October.

 

Arising from Minute No. 20 (Adult Social Care – Performance Clinics), Councillor Roche reported that he had enquired about this issue and had been informed that the new system was different from that operated previously.  It was not a decision and, therefore, officers decided who was invited to a performance clinic.  The Democratic Services Manager sent out performance data on a quarterly basis, Cabinet Members received a briefing and it was then discussed by the Senior Leadership Team/Cabinet Members at their monthly meeting.  If a Member from this Commission was invited it would have to be opened to all the Commissions.

 

Councillor Ellis expressed concern that it was a new regime which involved all officer meetings with no Members; you could not have a performance tool without Members having no knowledge of it.  Previously a member of the respective Scrutiny Panel was always invited with the Cabinet Member chairing the clinic so it had changed considerably.  How could Members have governance over poor performance if they did not know what the tool was?

 

Additional information provided after the meeting:

The new system above was specifically with regard to meetings to discuss performance on the Corporate Plan, which had a varying number of Indicators for each Directorate. Officers have offered to brief Health Select Commission once a quarter Health Select on this data.


In the past there had been a system whereby a particular topic was examined in detail in a deep dive, with Members involved, but these were not currently in place.

 

Arising from Minute No. 21 (Caring Together Supporting Carers in Rotherham), it was noted that the Carers Strategy was to be submitted to the Health and Welfare Board in November for information and discussion in relation to the key themes aligned to the Health and Wellbeing Strategy.


Meeting: 28/07/2016 - Health Select Commission (Item 17)

17 Minutes of the Previous Meeting held on 16th June, 2016 pdf icon PDF 130 KB

Minutes:

The minutes of the previous meeting of the Health Select Commission held on 16th June, 2016, were noted.

 

Arising from Minute No. 5 (Director of Public Health Annual Report), there was an outstanding question regarding Making Every Contact Count (MECC) which had been included in the first version of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy but had proved difficult to progress.  The issues raised were:-

 

-          How would we achieve the balance between the worker carrying out the core purpose of their visit or interaction with the customer (which might be a very short appointment time) and finding time to ask the wider questions?

-          If someone does disclose something that needs to be acted upon, how would this be dealt with when there may be waiting lists already?

 

Terri Roche, Director of Public Health, reported that there had been a couple of unsuccessful attempts in Rotherham to get MECC off the ground but now seemed to be the right time due to the Health and Social Care integration and the Sustainability and Transformation Plan having a big focus on the need for prevention, self-care and early help.  It was a challenge when people were incredibly busy but the important message about MECC was that you developed it with the front line staff.

 

It was about helping people to make healthier choices but starting where they were at and helping them to achieve small sustained long term health changes. 

 

The organisation that was buying into it needed to consider the whole culture in which their staff worked. It was about getting senior management buy-in so they understood that their staff needed time, training and consideration to the environment in which they were working so there was more health information, posters around etc. to get the person to start thinking about healthier lifestyles before they saw a health or social care professional. 

 

As well as the change in the individual it was important to get organisational change, including your own staff’s health and wellbeing. It was easier to have these conversations with others if you were making these changes yourself.

 

It was not about being an expert but about having the basic information that was available to the public and being able to ask that question which checked if they were ready to change and if so to give them a small amount of information and/or signpost to specialists.

 

That way it was believed it would happen.  There were already some positive responses from the Rotherham Foundation Trust who definitely wanted to take it forward.  It was hoped that proceeding in this measured way would not overburden staff.

 

Arising from Minute No. 7 (Quality Account Sub-Groups), it was noted that the sub-groups had now been determined with Members having been circulated with all the relevant information for the sub-group they were involved with.  Meetings would take place in November and December, dates to be notified.

-          further information received after the meeting had been included in the Minute regarding performance on processing prescriptions

 

-          a remainder to those that had not as yet submitted any comments and thanks to those that already had

 

-          TRFT Governors’ Surgeries – normal communication of the surgeries was through press releases, the TRFT website, social media and referenced in communication messages.  The February session had not been as actively communicated as in the past due to the uncertainty that it would go ahead due to Governor availability.  However, the Trust had held limited surgeries both on the main Hospital site and the RCHC with Governors having the opportunity to speak to patients/visitors/staff and gather feedback

 

Arising from Minute No. 84 (RDaSH Quality Account), it was noted that the draft document had not yet been circulated to stakeholders for feedback.
