1 Health and Sport Committee NHS Board Accounts Questionnaire Response from NHS Borders Service development 1. Please give THREE examples of service developments that: (a) you have been able to fund in (please list local service developments, rather than national programmes) NHS Borders is investing in the recurring running costs of a new palliative care unit The introduction of a proteinuria screening and treatment service The appointment of an additional consultant neurologist linked to increasing service demand (b) you would like to develop if you had additional funding i.e. what is next on your list of priorities? A full review of the cost and service pressures across the organisation was undertaken by NHS Borders and a list of areas to be supported in 2013/14 was presented to NHS Borders Strategy Group. All of the recommended priorities were funded. (c) you have withdrawn in (and why?). NHS Borders is not planning the withdrawal any services in Preventative spending 2. What specific preventative health programmes are included in budget plans for ? (please give details of planned expenditure in compared with ) The table below provides some specific examples of preventative health programmes. 2012/ /14 Tobacco Prevention Programme 202, ,000 Child Health Weight 55,000 55,000 Maternity Care (includes BFI) 32,000 32,000 1

2 Maternal & Infant Nutrition 49,000 49,000 Healthy Living Network 165, ,000 Keep Well 123, ,000 Learning Disability Sexual Health 13,000 11,000 Learning Disability Healthy Weight 11,000 10,000 Mental Health Improvement 10,000 10,000 National Immunisation Programme 267, ,000 Childsmile 291, ,000 Screening Programmes, Cytology, Retinopathy & Aortic Aneurysm 126, ,000 Detect Cancer Early 105, ,000 Infection Control 40,000 40,000 Drug and Alcohol 1,343,000 1,343,000 Blood Bourne Virus 187, , Have you made any assessment of the potential longer term savings from preventative spending? If so, please describe your approach to this modelling. NHS Borders is currently considering how to identify longer term savings sufficiently robustly for them to be included in financial planning. Our initial thoughts are that this work would be best developed on a national basis, possibly through the Scottish Public Health Network or some other appropriate collaboration. However, the criteria for the introduction of preventative initiatives are that they will ultimately reduce the level of mortality and morbidity of the Border s population in future years. 4. How the results of any such modelling are reflected in your financial planning? NHS Borders has no robust methodology for identifying longer term savings which are a direct result of preventative spending therefore they are not reflected in our financial plan. 2

3 Access to new medicines 5. In relation to spending on newly-licenced medicines (whether or not approved by the SMC), please complete the table below: Please note there is no accepted definition of a newly licensed medicine. For this exercise we have looked at medicines reviewed by or due to be reviewed by Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) in 2011/12, 2012/13 and 2013/14, based on the Forward Look reports published by the SMC. The information provided relates to medicines considered by SMC as having a moderate to high net impact on the drugs budget. The expenditure provided relates to all uses of the drug not just the newlylicensed indication as this information is not recorded electronically. GP prescribing Hospital prescribing (planned) 41, , (actual) 24,000(to Feb 2013) 716, (planned) 110, , For each individual patient request agreed in (relating to newlylicenced medicines not recommended by the SMC), please complete the table below (please delete the example provided): Request number Actual cost Planned cost Medicine Therapy area Deferasirox Iron overload 1,700 Nil Reducing inequalities 7. (a) What specific services are aimed at reducing inequalities? (please include details of Keep Well.) Keep well the service works mainly in primary care and assesses cardio vascular disease (CVD) in deprived areas. Health Living Network Borders Healthy Living Network (HLN) operates in five areas of high deprivation in Scottish Borders. HLN uses community development and assets based approaches to identify local priorities for health improvement and develop ways to address them. Sure Start Midwives the Early Years Assessment Team is an integrated team who work with pregnant women referred by Community Midwives 3

4 or by services such as Borders Addiction Service or Adult Mental Health Services. Immunisation Programme programmes include childhood vaccinations, HPV and flu. New programmes in 2013/14 will include rotavirus, zoster (shingles), Men c and childhood flu vaccines.

7 Resource transfer 8. (a) What level of funding will be transferred from your budget to local authorities in (i.e. resource transfer) and what services will these funds help deliver?

Funding transfer between partners organisation for 2013/14 has not yet been finalised. Examples of this in 2012/13 were discharge planning and children s services. NHS Borders and Scottish Borders Council have a joint learning disability service and a mental health and wellbeing partnership. Equalities 9. Can you provide any specific examples of how consideration of equalities issues has influenced budget decisions? An equality impact assessment of NHS Borders Local Delivery Plan is currently being carried out. Where gaps in access or provision of health services have been identified spending has been redirected to specific work streams. Examples: Sexual health project enabling patients with learning disabilities to access information and services. Health improvement work in areas where significant health inequalities have been identified. Funding for Keep Well project (migrant populations, gypsy travellers etc) to enable access to health checks. 7

8 Partner Funding for Pathway project (Violence against Women gender inequality). Sustainable development 10. Can you provide any specific examples of how the NHSScotland sustainable development strategy has influenced budget decisions? The Board currently has an annual energy spend of almost 2m and a carbon footprint of 10,604 tonnes of CO2. In meeting proposed targets, NHS Borders will save 1.8m and avoid emissions of 7,396 tonnes of CO2 in total over an 8 year period. Examples of schemes to achieve this are: The installation of biomass boilers to reduce CO 2 emissions and to provide fuel security at sites. An energy audit of the complete property portfolio in order to adjust heating times and temperatures to provide optimal efficiency and a reduction in carbon emissions. 8
