1 D04/ODN/a NHS STANDARD CONTRACT FOR NEUROMUSCULAR OPERATIONAL DELIVERY NETWORKS SCHEDULE 2- THE SERVICES A. SERVICE SPECIFICATIONS Service Specification No. Service Commissioner Lead Provider Lead Period Date of Review December 2014 Version Control 2.0 D04/ODN/a Neuromuscular Operational Delivery Network Specification 1. Population Needs 1.1 National/local context and evidence base Operational Delivery Networks The NHS England has recognised that clinical networks are an NHS success story and have been responsible for some significant sustained improvements in the quality of patient care and the outcomes of their treatment. The Way Forward: Strategic Clinical Networks (July 2012) outlined the range and role of clinical networks in the new health system. There will be a range of networks performing different functions which include: a small number of Strategic Clinical Networks (SCNs) that are established and supported by NHS England to advise commissioners, support strategic change projects and improve outcomes Operational Delivery Networks (ODNs) that are focused on coordinating patient pathways between providers over a wide area to ensure access to specialist resources and expertise. ODNs will focus on operational delivery. ODNs will ensure outcomes and quality standards are improved and evidence based networked patient pathways are agreed. They will focus on an operational role, supporting the activity of Provider Trusts in service delivery, improvement and delivery of a commissioned pathway, with a key focus on the quality and equity of access to service provision. This will allow for more local determination, innovation and efficiency across the pathway. ODNs support the delivery of Right Care principles by incentivising a system to manage the right patient in the right place. Neuromuscular networks will operate as ODNs defined in this specification. ODNs are focussed on coordinating patient pathways between providers over a wide area to ensure access to specialist resources and expertise.

2 Neuromuscular Networks Neuromuscular Networks exist to deliver a comprehensive, equitable, integrated and safe service, local where possible, for adults and children with neuromuscular conditions. Neuromuscular Networks will comprise all services providing Neuromuscular Care, as outlined in the NHS Commissioning Board Service Specifications for neurosciences. The development of a Neuromuscular Operational Delivery Network will ensure there are effective pathways of care across a network of providers and provide professional and clinical leadership. A multidisciplinary network team will include neuromuscular consultants, specialist nurses, allied health professionals (e.g. Physiotherapists), Psychology support and neuromuscular care advisors working across a network of primary care, community, secondary and tertiary providers. The network should encompass both adult and paediatric neuromuscular care.

3 2. Scope 2.1 Aims and objectives of service Neuromuscular ODNs will deliver a whole system work programme for a service across a defined geographical area and within a specific area of care. They will align and work with established and evolving NHS organisations such as Senates and Clinical Reference Groups (CRGs). The ODN model will be reviewed and developed through the regional specialised commissioning bodies, coordinated through national Programmes of Care as the delivery mechanism of the four regions, linked to CRGs, then out into the networks with delivery of the aligned pathways through the provider landscape. To improve joined up working to achieve better outcomes and service access, ODNs will collaborate with regional level Programme of Care (commissioning) leads, as well as commissioning quality teams and national outcomes leads. Area Teams will performance manages the ODNs through the contractual relationship. Operational Delivery Networks will respond to need through national, regional and local determination, depending on the identified challenge for example, a local critical care bed crisis or a large scale mass incident. An ODN will: Ensure effective clinical flows through the provider system through clinical collaboration for networked provision of services. Take a whole system collaborative provision approach to ensuring the delivery of safe and effective services across the patient pathway, adding value for all its stakeholders. Improve cross-organisational multi-professional clinical engagement to improve pathways of care. Enable the development of consistent provider guidance and improved service standards, ensuring a consistent patient and family experience. Focus on quality and effectiveness through facilitation of comparative benchmarking and auditing of services, with implementation of required improvements. Fulfil a key role in assuring providers and commissioners of all aspects of quality as well as coordinating provider resources to secure the best outcomes for patients across wide geographic areas. Support capacity planning and activity monitoring with collaborative forecasting of demand, and matching of demand and supply. The benefits of this will be improving outcomes, productivity and increasing efficiency through: Stronger collaborative networked provision of services. Maintained and/or improved patient outcomes and quality of care and, where appropriate, to standardise care. New approaches associated with new hosts. Increased opportunities for risk sharing between providers. Opportunities to more accurately cost out the pathways of care and the utilisation of resources more efficiently. Sharing the benefit of Quality, Innovation, Productivity, Prevention (QIPP) opportunities. Opportunity to move to a prime contracting focus (i.e. a single contract for a pathway of care over several providers). More effective utilisation of contract levers for commissioners. 3

4 Increased speed of adoption of innovation. Rapid learning and development. Improved system resilience, including major incident planning. Members of the ODN will work collaboratively to share learning, experiences, knowledge, skills and best practice for the benefit of all within that specialist environment. The ODN will need to function based on a compact between all parties which defines professional behaviour. To promote providers to do a good job, a network competency assessment would allow qualification to establish an inter-provider contract model. The outcomes and indicators in the NHS Outcomes Framework were chosen with a view to measuring the outcomes resulting from treatment activity for which the NHS is largely responsible. Providers will be held to account for delivering improved outcomes. Providers will be supported by ODNs in achieving their critical contribution to the indicators within the NHS Outcomes Framework. The Neuromuscular Networks consist of the providers of Neuromuscular Care, collaborating in the provision of that care and cooperating in quality improvement activities. Much of the activity in the network will be around the development of pathways and protocols to ensure effective care delivery. Providers will work towards professionally agreed standards and protocols for care and movement of patients across the Network (in line with national services specifications for neurosciences), in order to ensure consistent and coherent practice and provide assurance of care quality. Quality standards should be enforced in protocols that can be derived from the System Performance Framework and should be narrow, measureable goals. Protocols should have a wider remit, seeking full implementation of relevant national (National Institute of Clinical Excellence; NICE) guidance or local standards of care. The aim of the Neuromuscular network is to improve the coordination of care across a regional network or across networks; to integrate both service strategy and clinical pathways. The Neuromuscular will be responsible for the development of a local strategy to implement national imperatives and in response to relevant national standards and service specifications. A Neuromuscular Operational Delivery Network will specifically: Ensure patients receive high quality care within an appropriate setting across a network of providers. Ensure patients receive closer to home through shared care and outreach services across a network. Ensure that patients have a voice and their views considered. Fully support the future development of neuromuscular services by enabling clinical expertise to be shared. Commissioners have clearly defined the Neuromuscular Care pathway standards through a service specification, articulating the requirement for a networked provision of services, and delivered through the contract delivery mechanism. For the directly commissioned services of Neuromuscular services, the pathway standards are outlined in service specifications for Neurosciences. The ODNs outputs will be to deliver the work programme and operational model to enable the delivery of the services specification standards, national programme of care outcomes and outcomes framework targets. Neuromuscular Care Network The Neuromuscular network will advise on the commissioning and development of services to provide high quality, effective Neuromuscular Care services in line with national priorities and local imperatives. The network will also foster partnership working and collaboration across all of the organisations providing Neuromuscular Care within its geographical area. 4

5 The network will advise on the local commissioning and development of services to provide high quality, effective Neuromuscular care in line with both nationally commissioned priorities and local imperatives. Advice may be provided to CCGs, ATs, and through the CRG, to the national commissioning board. The ODN will provide an environment where clinicians work together to do once where possible, to share best practice and promote best quality care to continually improve services. A Neuromuscular Operational Delivery Network will include: A managed clinical network to support multi-disciplinary and cross organisational working to provide effective and efficient treatment, care and support to patients and their families; Shared care with services delivered as close to home as possible, as well as access to a specialist centre when appropriate, supported by multi-disciplinary team working across primary, secondary and tertiary services. Individualised care supported by ongoing care co-ordination from he point of diagnosis; Close working between paediatric and adult services to ensure smooth transition between services Support to patients and their families will be delivered through Neuromuscular Care Advisors or Clinical Nurse Specialists. A Neuromuscular Operational Delivery Network will ensure: A managed clinical network to support multi-disciplinary and cross organisational working to provide effective and efficient treatment, care and support to patients and their families; Shared care with services delivered as close to home as possible as well as access to a specialist centre when appropriate supported by multi-disciplinary team working across primary, secondary and tertiary services. Individualised care supported by ongoing care co-ordination from he point of diagnosis; Close working between paediatric and adult services to ensure smooth transition between services Support to patients and their families will be delivered through Neuromuscular Care Advisors or Clinical Nurse Specialists based within the network. 2.2 Service description/care pathway Specialised neuromuscular services will be provided to NMD patients of all ages and via a managed clinical pathway that supports multi-disciplinary and cross organisational working. This will facilitate effective and efficient treatment, care and support to patients, their families and carers. Neuromuscular Operational Delivery Networks Neuromuscular care ODNs will be hosted in a named provider from within the network. This lead provider will be responsible for ensuring the effective functioning of the network working in conjunction with the lead commissioner from the NHS England. The lead provider hosting the network will be responsible for ensuring effective pathways of care between providers in network. The host provider will be responsible for the delivery of following areas of work; Strategic Planning Providing professional and clinical leadership across the network. Developing an annual work programme for the ODN to deliver the national strategy and outcomes. Hosting a risk register and undertaking risk management across the network. Effective linkages into the Programme of Care lead in NHS England. Effective linkage into local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). 5
