5 TBP04/12 Minutes of the Meeting of the Board of Directors held on 26 October 2011 The Board were content for John Bacon to sign the minutes as a true reflection. TBP05/12 Action Points & Matters Arising from previous meeting held on the 26 October 2011 None TBP06/12 To receive a report from the Chief Executive which sets the context for the meeting. Lisa odrigues introduced the Chief Executive s report and advised 2012 would be the toughest year for the NHS and all public funded services. The Trust is facing extremely challenging times, not only does it serve the oldest population in the country but the latest figures show the national suicide rate has increased. It is important for the Trust to balance quality, safety and finance to ensure patients are receiving the best possible care. Lisa odrigues was delighted to announce the Trust has received one of the highest accolades it is ever likely to achieve. Sussex Partnership has been judged the top employer in the whole NHS for lesbian, gay and bisexual people in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, the highest ever position for an NHS trust. The Trust was in 4 th place overall against international blue-chip as well as public sector competition, and Lisa odrigues thanked the Equality and Diversity Team for all their hard work. Other positive news includes the Trusts new website. Vast improvements have been made as the Trust realises the importance of having a good form of communication with the public. The site is completely owned by the Trust and is more user-friendly with better navigation, an improved service directory and interactive videos. Lisa odrigues thanked the Executive Director of Corporate Services and her team for all their hard work. The Trust has awarded a contract to provide Information Technology Infrastructure and support, and the winning bidder will be announced at the end of the week. The Trust is pleased to be pioneers and is looking forward to supplying staff with improved systems and easier mobile working solutions. Lisa odrigues thanked the Executive Director of Finance and Performance, and Non Executive Directors Mike eerts and Tim Masters for all their hard work over the past 9 months. She advised that all the suppliers in the final round were very impressed with the level of engagement from the Board. Lisa thanked all staff for their patience with the current systems, as well as staff at the Sussex Health Informatics Services for maintaining existing services while the Trust goes through this enormous change programme. As part of the Sussex Together programme the Trust is working closely with its partners in the Sussex PCT Cluster, other Sussex Trusts, three local authorities and Clinical Commissioning roups (CCs) to make sure resources are put into best effect. Melloney Poole asked whether the Trust plans to respond quickly once the recommendations of the Mid Staffordshire enquiry have been announced. Lisa odrigues advised the recommendations could have a greater impact on the Health and Social Care Bill and a paper will be brought to the Board on the implications. Agenda: A paper on the implication to the Trust following the recommendations made from the Mid Staffordshire enquiry - future Board meeting. Page 2 of 10

6 TBP07/12 To receive a report from the Chief Operating Officer on key issues from operational services Lorraine eid presented the report and gave an overview of the key issues in operational services with some stories that sit behind the papers discussed at the Board meeting. Lorraine eid congratulated the Trust on their achievements to transform services. The Trust is now operating with 96 fewer beds then it was at this time last year. January through to April is a difficult time for people with mental health problems and the Trust may therefore see some pressure over the coming months for beds, this will be monitored through teams with a daily conference call between management to address any immediate actions. The implementation of Better by Design continues as the Trust has now moved from the inpatient phase to making significant changes in the way we deliver outpatient and community services. Cavendish House is well underway with the first Assessment and Treatment Centre now open. Consultant Psychiatrists have been allocated to P practices in order to simplify assessment and dedicated treatment pathways for people who use our services, and CCs are also coming on-stream. Services are raising their national profile by rolling out projects and becoming involved in schemes such as System, Training for Emotional Predictability and Problem Solving roups (STEPPS) in Early Intervention and Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) and Closing the ap projects in Child and Adolescent Mental Heath Services (CAMHS). Lorraine eid advised Dove Ward has now opened at Crawley Hospital, and explained this is a new inpatient detox unit which took its first patients from London this week. Building work on the Selden Centre has now been completed; the staff moving to the new service from the existing Assessment and Treatment Unit are delighted with the building and feel it will greatly improve on the patient experience and therapeutic work that is undertaken. Lorraine eid advised she had visited the centre this morning and congratulated the Trust on the outstanding quality of the building. The opening is scheduled for the beginning of February and recommended members of the Board attend if possible. Staff at Lewes prison have been working to improve and develop health services for prisoners. Two staff have recently undergone training with Macmillian and have developed an end of life care pathway. The Trust will be running services from Ford Prison from April The commissioners visited the Department of Psychiatry (DoP) recently and were very positive following the incident in December. Lorraine eid acknowledged staffs positive attitude at the recent Leadership Conference, staffs perception has changed, the culture is now very positive and every member of staff aspires to be a role model for each other. Helen reatorex asked what implications the bed reduction and pressure would have on average length of stay. Lorraine eid advised average length of stay will vary in accordance with seasonal trends and this is being monitored through the daily conference calls. A lot of work has been undertaken to address certain areas and figures are currently down, the Trust will continue to address underlying issues. Page 3 of 10

7 TBP08/12 TBP08.1/12 PEFOMANCE Performance eport including Finance eport, H eport and Quality eport Helen reatorex reported on Quality in Priority 1: Objective 1.1 and The Trust is on track and indicators are currently met to improve the experience of people using our services and to deliver safe services. Objective 1.3 Some indicators are shown as currently not met and work is being undertaken to focus on understanding the underlying issues. Melloney Poole requested the report include exact figures next month, and have more focus on average length of stay. Melloney suggested the report should include the type of average used, the reasons why and to breakdown performance by unit so the members of the Board have a better understanding. Action: To provide greater detail on average length of stay in the Quality section of the performance report Sue Morris updated the Board on H developments: Objective 2.3 Sickness/absence rates are showing as not met, and being just above target. The Health & Wellbeing Strategic roup recently met and are reviewing actions to try and reduce smoking and increase physical activity. The Trust is supporting the Olympic 2012 challenge and has set up a Walk 4 Life roup to help encourage staff to become more active. Objective 2.4 The staff survey has concluded with a return of 50.28% which is just below the national average of 54%, and the results will be embargoed until March The Trust has been running monthly staff surveys which could have deterred staff from completed the annual survey; these monthly surveys will be issued quarterly in the future. Lisa odrigues asked how the Board identify actual performance from the information given in the report, and highlighted the appraisal indicator as an example. Sue Morris advised actual figures will be added to the report for next month and confirmed 92% of appraisals had been completed by the end of last year. This is a good achievement but looking to achieve a higher number earlier in the year. John Bacon highlighted the importance of staff appraisals in these challenging times. Mike eerts reiterated the timeliness of appraisals needing to be completed and finalised earlier, and timeframes should be set to staff at the beginning of the year. Sue Morris agreed and advised the Trust is expecting to receive a higher percentage completed by June. John Bacon advised a planning process should be put into place now to ensure this higher percentage is achieved, and Mike eerts noted it was a shared responsibility between manager and staff that appraisals are completed and this should be noted in the guidance to staff. Lorraine eid acknowledged there was a trend in Operational Services this year which affected the figures, but assured the Board appraisals would be completed more timely this year. Sally Flint advised the Board that the Trust continues to maintain its excellence performance against the majority of performance indicators for this financial year. In quarter 3 there has been an increase in the delayed discharges for Older people in Brighton & Hove. This is due to the closure of two elderly mental health homes in the city this year, and the Trust is meeting Page 4 of 10

8 with key partners to review how the needs of these patients can be met in the future. The Trust has achieved a Health of the Nation Outcome Score (HoNOS) of 98.8% against our target of 50%. Sally Flint advised HoNOS is preparing for Payment by esults which the Board will hear more about in the seminar today. Sally Flint advised the Trust has one performance notice outstanding relating to waiting times in Brighton & Hove. The Trust has been successful in winning the tender to provide the new service, and are focusing on the new contract. Sally Flint advised the style of the report will be changing, to include a longer summary in order to provide the Board with more assurance, and the dashboard will also be improved with more emphasis on Quality. On finance, Sally Flint reported the Trust has had a challenging, transitional year, and has a current risk rating of 3. The main three areas impacting on the financial performance include the Better by Design programme and the huge amount of changes to beds, along with Secondary Commissioning and costs to support the Technology Improvement Programme. The Trust has carried the Secondary Commissioning risk for a number of years and will be passing this back to Commissioners in April Sally Flint reassured the Board the Trust s underlying position is very strong, and had achieved 10m savings this year, taking the total up to 37m over the last three years. John Bacon highlighted the impact Secondary Commissioning had on the Trust financial position and advised that without this the Trust would be ahead of plan. TBP08.2/12 To agree the quarter 3 self certification report to Monitor Ann Merricks presented the report and advised the trust would submit the monitoring return on the 27 January In making this return the Board is considering performance against the Annual Plan for Ann Merricks advised the governance submission to Monitor rates the Trust as amber-red, this is a consequence of the major concern rating by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC made an unannounced visit to the DoP last week and the Trust are still awaiting an unannounced visit to Mill View Hospital, following which it is anticipated there will no longer be a major concern. The In Year Quality Board Statement has been added for submission this year, and in light of the major concern rating by the CQC, the Trust will submit declaration 2. John Bacon advised the Board the amber-red rating is automatically triggered following a reported major concern rated by the CQC but following the subsequent unannounced visits this can be removed in real time as soon as the CQC confirm there is no longer a major concern. Helen reatorex advised following the second unannounced visit to the DoP the CQC had revised their rating from a major to a moderate concern and were reassured the action plan was being delivered. With a moderate concern the Trust can expect a future unannounced visit. Jon Cohen questioned why the CQC had a moderate concern. Helen reatorex advised the Trusts action plan had revised the care pathway in a different way. John Bacon advised he would be writing Monitor a covering note to accompanying thetrust s submission highlighting the impact and significance Secondary Commissioning has had on the Trusts rating and that it will be non-recurrent issue in the future, this letter will be circulated to Board members. Page 5 of 10

9 Action: Circulate a copy of the letter sent to Monitor from John Bacon to accompany the trust s submission Tim Masters requested that CQC issues be added to the Quality section of the Performance eport for completeness. Action: CQC issues added to the Quality section within the Performance eport. The Board were content to agree that the Chair signs declaration 2 of the Q3 governance statement and declaration 2 of the Q3 in year quality board statement. TBP08.3/12 To consider the Assurance Framework Helen reatorex presented the quarter 3 Assurance Framework (AF) and advised the risk ratings on Business Plan reference 5.1 and 5.2 have been revised to extreme following the discussion at the October Board meeting, both relating to the Trusts financial position. The Audit Committee discussed the AF at their meeting on the 6 January 2012, a presentation from KPM outlined the components of a good AF and shared tools which will be used to further improve the Trusts AF. The top five risks paper will be presented to the Board in April and will be informed by KPM s advice. Ann Merricks suggested the Trust reconsider the rating to deliver safe services following the CQC visits. Helen reatorex advised she would raise this for consideration at the next isk Triangulation roup. Action: The isk Triangulation roup to reconsider the rating against delivering safe services in the Assurance Framework. TBP09/12 OVENANCE TBP09.1/12 A verbal update from the Council of overnors meeting on the 16 January 2012 John Bacon advised there had been a change of elected and appointed membership on the Council of overnors following the elections in July, and sadly a number of overnors have since had to resign due to poor health. The meeting on the 16 January 2012 was quorate but the Trust will be filling the vacancies. The discussions that took place at the Council of overnors meeting covered the performance and financial position of the Trust, an update on the Better by Design implementation, and a presentation from PriceWaterhouse Coopers the Trusts external auditors. In the private section of the meeting the overnors agreed for the Trust to start the process to appoint a new Non Executive Director and agreed the type of skill set they felt would benefit the Board. The Trust has since instigated the process with recruitment consultant Veredus, and the timetable will allow recommendation for appointment to go to the next Council of overnors meeting in April John Bacon expressed his gratitude to the Non Executive Directors for covering attendance and contributing to the Board sub-committees whilst Mike Viggers was on leave of absence, and advised committee memberships will be revised and the process has started to ensure they are populated and balanced correctly.

10 TBP09.2/12 To note a report on the use of the company seal in the last quarter Trust Standing Orders require a report on all sealed documents to be made to the Board at least quarterly. Ann Merricks asked the Board to receive the report for the period 1 October 2011 to 31 December The documents relate to the Business Purchase Agreement, Nevill Hospital and the Downs Nursing Home and the lease of transfer of properties in West Sussex and Hove. Ann Merricks confirmed the Trust had sought legal advice for the Nevill Hospital documents. Lisa odrigues advised the Trust needed to take action and ensure the Council take the signs down on the roads around the Downs Nursing Home, as they still read the Downs Christian Nursing Home. Action: Sue Morris to ensure the Council change the signage at the Downs Nursing Home The Board were content to receive the report. TBP09.3/12 To note a report on the last meeting of the Audit Committee Tim Masters presented the Audit Committee summary report following on from the Audit Committee held on the 6 January Key items discussed by the committee include: External Audit Plan and Timetable for the 2011/12 Annual Accounts The Trusts external auditors presented their audit plan for 2011/12 year end, and advised they had started an interim audit. There is a shorter deadline for submission of the accounts this year so the Trust has asked the external auditors to address any issues early. A number of technical accounting issues were raised related to the requirement put in place by the Department of Health whereby all Trusts must present merger accounts for new services, and therefore the Trust must action this requirement for Hampshire CAMHS and HMP Lewes. Tim Masters advised the Audit Committee have asked the external auditors to reconsider this issue, but the Trust has been informed it is a clear requirement from the Department of Health and not the auditors. John Bacon advised he would be happy to write to the Department of Health eport from the Quality Committee & isk Triangulation roup The Committee received a formal presentation from KPM on the development of the Assurance Framework. Whilst it was agreed to the Trust has the key material to populate an Assurance Framework further consideration needs to be given to how the material is presented. Tim Masters advised the process is underway to appoint an Internal Auditor as the Trusts current contract is due to finish at the end of March. Page 7 of 10

11 TBP09.4/12 To note a report on the last meeting of the Better by Design overnance roup ichard Ford presented the paper and advised good progress is being made with Under One oof, teams are working in a different way and developing new skill sets. In East Sussex teams have moved successfully into Cavendish House at the beginning of December, and in West Sussex teams have started to move into the Chanctonbury building, with the new model operational from the end of March ichard Ford reported that Brighton & Hove Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (HOSC) were in agreement with the Trusts bed redesign in Brighton & Hove. This will result in 19 less beds by the end of March The Trust will have further discussions with West Sussex HOSC next month. A draft training strategy was reviewed by the Making It Happen roups in December and was presented to the Better by Design Operational roups in January; this strategy will help staff with working in a different way. The Trust has been working with the NHS Institute over the past few months redesigning corporate services, and a report will be given to the Executive Directors at their next eview Day in February. John Bacon was pleased out of the 241 staff placed at risk the Trust managed to allocate 227 a new post. TBP09.5/12 To note a report on the last meeting of the Finance and Performance Committee Mike eerts presented the report from the meeting held on the 25 November The Committee had a long discussion on the financial performance of the Trust and it was noted the two main reasons for the Trust position were secondary commissioning for which it is extremely rare for a Trust to hold the responsibility and the non-delivery of the cost improvement programme. The committee are detailing the lessons learnt from taking on Hampshire CAMHS and HMP Lewes. Mike eerts advised it is important the Trust identifies what could be improved when taking on future services and projects. A report of findings will be reported to the Board in due course. TBP09.6/12 To note a report on the last meeting of the Quality Committee Jon Cohen presented the report from the Quality Committee held on the 14 December Key items discussed by the committee include: Complaints esolution progress There has been some improvement on the resolution of complaints, but the committee needs to continue reviewing the progress, as more work is needed. Mill View Update - The Committee agreed to review the progress made on delivering the Mill View action plan, and agreed the changes made need to be sustained. Customer Experience Survey The Committee had a very robust discussion about how the outcomes of the survey should be applied, specifically in some cases due to the small number of responders Page 8 of 10

12 John Bacon asked how the changes made at Mill View would be sustained. Helen reatorex advised there was now a full time eneral Manager in place who was doing an extremely good job and lifting the morale of colleagues. A strong relationship between teams will ensure changes are sustained. Lisa odrigues advised she visited the hospital yesterday and was extremely pleased with the progress that had been made. She thanked Justine osser, Interim Deputy Service Director for all her hard work. It is important the Trust keep staff and the community engaged in the hospital, and suggested look at ways of introducing volunteers to meet and greet visitors whilst maintaining privacy and dignity for very ill patients. Tim Ojo referred to the Clinical Audit Plan process update within the report and advised it is challenging for the audit team to change to facilitate and not to do audits. He suggested that the Executive Team emphasise audits when visiting services to raise their profile. John Bacon asked the Committee to work through ways of helping support teams with this change in approach. TBP09.7/12 To note a report on the last meeting of the Charitable Funds Committee Jon Cohen presented the report from the Charitable Funds Committee held on the 14 December 2011, and advised the main issue was the Charitable Fund was spending more money then it was receiving. The Committee had a discussion on how this could be handled and the Executive Director of Finance and Performance agreed to discuss this further with the Executive Directors outside of the Committee. Mike eerts questioned why esearch and Development were bidding for funding through the Charitable Funds rather then being supported through the Trust. Jon Cohen explained esearch and Development has two parallel ways of securing funding through the Board and through Charitable Funds in accordance with the terms of reference. Lisa odrigues advised as a teaching trust it is essential research and development is fully supported. Kay Macdonald suggested an audit be undertaken, and the Trust should track the spend through to completion. TBP10/12 TBP10.1/12 STATEY To receive an update on progress on the IM&T Strategy Sally Flint advised the Trust had selected a preferred bidder to provide Information Technology Infrastructure and support, and the winning bidder will be announced at the end of the week. TBP11/12 Any Other Business Diana Marsland advised she had attended the Brighton & Hove Members Meeting on the 16 January The topic for the meeting was Early Interventions in Psychosis and an excellent presentation was given by one of the team and a Service User. Many members have requested for the presentation to be added to the Trust website, and whether it can be shared more widely. Ann Merricks advised the presentation will be given at future members meetings organised on a rotational basis, and members are encouraged to bring a friend with them to meetings. This helps encourage new membership. Page 9 of 10

15 CHIEF EXECUTIVE EPOT Board Meeting 29 February 2012 By: Lisa odrigues Agenda Item: TBP17/12 Attachment: C 1. Introduction This is the regular monthly Chief Executive eport to the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust Board of Directors. My report comprises context, a brief résumé of issues we have been tackling in the month, and a guide to the agenda and papers. It is written to aid internal and external communications. 2. Context, strategic issues and key milestones in the month This month we have opened two new services, both serving the population of Sussex and beyond: The Selden Centre, at our Swandean site in Worthing, West Sussex an excellent inpatient assessment and treatment centre for people with learning disabilities The Hellingly Centre near Hailsham, East Sussex our flagship medium secure hospital. These services share a number of features. They are designed to adhere to stringent guidance on privacy, dignity, safety and security. Those who have visited have been openly delighted at the extremely high quality of each facility. Both were entirely funded by money we raised ourselves, one of the freedoms of being a foundation trust. And both are staffed by highly qualified, compassionate professional staff who deliver care based on the best evidence. ood staff can of course provide adequate care in less than ideal facilities. But great staff, working in state-of-the-art centres, can provide world-class care. We want nothing less for those we serve in Sussex, and beyond. In our confidential meetings, we will continue to explore commercially sensitive business cases that will enable us further to improve and expand the care we offer. Business cases are always subject to approval in public once we have confidence that they are commercially viable and deliverable. During February, we announced that we are working with 2e2, a specialist provider of IT services, in order to revolutionise our Information and Communications Technology support. This includes mobile phones and other mobile devices; land lines; laptops, desktops and main servers; the IT network; video-conferencing; support for all applications including our website, intranet, performance and clinical information systems; and all helpdesk functions. The services we receive will start to improve from April 2012, making them fit to support 21 st Century care and treatment in our hospitals, clinics and patients own homes, and throughout our support services. Last month I predicted that 2012 would be the hardest year yet for the NHS, and for us. We continue to see significantly increased demand across all care groups, borne out in the performance report before the Board today. From April 2012, we will be producing information on the care we provide in our adult mental health services under the new nationally mandated 1 of 3

16 mental health Payment by esults system. I am pleased to say that we are fully prepared for this. Like other NHS providers, we are delivering services with reduced income compared with 2010/2011 in real and actual terms, set to reduce again from April In the last 3 years we have reduced our costs by 30 million by redesigning clinical and corporate services. Not a single member of staff or team has been unaffected. Our commitment is that our efficiency savings will never have a detrimental impact on patient care. This is why it is vital that we streamline our IT support, and consider performance, quality and finance reports together. There is considerable evidence that organisations that are well governed also provide high quality services; we will be tested very hard on this in the coming years. Meanwhile, we continue to work closely with our partners in the Sussex PCT cluster, other Sussex trusts, the three Sussex local authorities and the CCs to make sure the resources we have collectively are put to best effect, and that we aim for success throughout this year of transition prior to the implementation of the reforms in This month, our Board spent time with members of our Council of overnors to look at the implications for us of the NHS reforms, in particular the proposed changes to the way our services are commissioned and to the foundation trust regulator Monitor. It is vital that governors are prepared for the changes, given their responsibilities. Finally, by the time the Board meets, we will be reaching the end of the three inquests into deaths of people receiving care at our small hospital in Hastings in 2008 and My of 17 th February refers to this, and is on our website I take this opportunity to commend our staff for being brave, open and honest at the inquests; we can ask no more of them than this. 3. Key issues before the Board today The Board considers all aspects of performance via a combined report comprising the overall monthly performance report based on the business plan objectives and includes performance against all key targets. It includes a monthly summary on service quality, safety and risk, which is a meta-analysis of information drawn from other more detailed reports presented to Board sub-committees. The human resources section is set against agreed targets and again includes benchmarks and trends. The finance section shows that our financial position continues to be extremely challenging. The majority of care groups and corporate areas are breaking even or better. But because of the well-known pressures on specialist commissioning mean we are unlikely to hit our original planned surplus for 2011/12. We are currently discussing the handover of this budget to specialist commissioners from April 2012 as per national strategy, and the level of risk share meanwhile. We have now adjusted our plans with Monitor, and are confident of hitting our revised target. This month we will be receiving précis reports from The Mental Health Act Committee and the Finance and Performance Committee. The Chief Operating Officer report provides an update on progress and activities in each of our care groups. I draw your attention to the oyal College of Psychiatrists accreditation of Amber Ward, our psychiatric intensive care unit at Langley reen Hospital, Crawley, serving West Sussex. And to the opening of Dove Ward, at Crawley Hospital, a new service providing inpatient detoxification services under a new contract to five South West London boroughs. Both are reasons for celebration, and I congratulate the staff working in these services. 2 of 3

18 CHIEF OPEATIN OFFICE EPOT Board Meeting 29 th February 2012 By: Lorraine eid Agenda Item: TBP18/12 Attachment: D 1. Introduction This is my regular report to the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust Board of Directors. It aims to provide context to some of the papers discussed at the meeting by giving an overview of the key issues in operational services along with some of the stories and activities that sit behind our strategy. 2. Context and operational overview this month In the last few months we have seen a rise in the number of demonstrable achievements which improve the quality and effectiveness of our clinical services and provide assurances about patient experience. This is a measure of the level of engagement and ownership with the Trust s strategy and commitment to quality care. By redesigning care pathways we have achieved a reduction in the need for admissions to hospital and brought the Trust in line with other similar organisations. This is enabling Under One oof which is a clinically led strategy, to provide services that are more efficient and responsive to local need. The successful and flexible service models that have been developed mean that we are able to take on and run specialist services for other areas, such as Dove Ward which is featured in this report. Finally, it is pleasing to see the spread and uptake of evidence based practice and how as an organisation, and in spite of the substantial changes that have been implemented in clinical services, we are leading the field now in a number of areas. 3. Stories Adult Mental Health Services (AMHS) oyal College of Psychiatrists Accreditation for Inpatient Mental Health Services (AIMS). The oyal College of Psychiatrists (CoP) developed nationally recognised AIMS standards to assist units to demonstrate compliance with the Care Quality Commission s essential standards of quality and safety which are; general standards, timely and purposeful admission, safety, environment and facilities, therapies and activities. Amber Ward at Langley reen Hospital started the accreditation process last January and they were awarded Level 3 - Excellent by the CoP Accreditation Committee on the 27 th January 2012, scoring 100% at Level 1, 96% at Level 2 and 89% at Level 3. There are only six other PICU units that have achieved an Excellent accreditation. The process was lead by Ward Manager, Zaahirah Saab with support from the multidisciplinary team and Theresa Dorey, Nurse Consultant / Professional Lead, Acute Care. Pavilion Ward at Mill View Hospital will undergo accreditation in May. 1

19 Under One oof The development in the Trust s community service entered the next phase when Cavendish House opened as the Assessment and Treatment Centre (ATC) for Hastings and St Leonards in December. This is being used as a pilot, with the experience providing lessons for the development right across Sussex. A focus group took place on 24 th January 2012, where delegates from Eastbourne, Brighton and West Sussex met with Cavendish House staff to hear about their initial experience. Acute Bed eductions The Trust has formally closed 85 beds as part of the Better by Design strategy and is working towards closing the remaining 15 beds in Brighton. Samantha Allen, Service Director, is working closely with staff and clinicians, Brighton and Hove City Council s Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee and Commissioners to ensure that the future bed reduction is handled safely. A clinical reference group has been established to monitor the bed reduction programme and ensure that people requiring an admission are admitted to their own local hospital. The programme is progressing according to plan despite this traditionally being a period of high demand. Care Home in each Service The Care Home in each (CHi) service commenced across Sussex on the 1st August Three teams, based in East Sussex, West Sussex and Brighton and Hove work with targeted care and nursing homes with a view to increasing the quality of care received by people with dementia, reducing the inappropriate use of antipsychotic medications. The teams aim to improve stakeholder experiences and increase the use of person-centred tools and other quality measurements used within care and nursing home settings. The most recent performance report for the teams is demonstrating significant improved outcomes for people who reside in these care homes and include the following: 254 comprehensive assessments with service-users and professionals. Supported staff within the homes to deliver 274 face-to-face interventions with service-users. Facilitated 57 workshops with staff, and 173 group education sessions. Successfully prevented 8 service-users from transferring to higher levels of social care support, 7 inappropriate psychiatric admissions and 5 inappropriate general hospital admissions. 135 anti-psychotic medication reviews resulting in a reduction in the use of these medications. Demonstrated a significant reduction in the severity of distress experienced by service-users, following medication changes and individual interventions. 215 psychosocial interventions as an alternative to medication for managing behaviours that challenge. eceived strong support from eneral Practitioners and other professionals involved in the care of service-users within targeted homes. Primary Mental Health Care & Wellbeing Services (PMHCWS) Health in Mind Over the past year the Health in Mind service in East Sussex has been developing a 2

20 programme of educational courses in positive psychology. The courses differ from the treatment workshops that the service has traditionally run. The new courses focus on positive approaches that lead to and nurture happiness rather than identify and treat depression or unhappiness. The positive psychology movement is led from the United States by Professor Martin Seligman, who has been consulted by Health in Mind staff on the development of these courses. The courses are received very well by patients. On Friday 10 th of February Health in Mind staff will deliver a Positive psychology in Action taster session to the Division of Clinical Psychology at their 2012 conference in London. Lord ichard Layard the architect of the national IAPT development and supporter of the Happiness Campaign will be attending the programme. The taster session will also be offered at a positive psychology symposium, again in London, in July of this year which will be chaired by Professor Martin Seligman. Children & Young People s Mental Health Services (CAMHS) CAMHS in Hampshire The second stage staff consultation is now concluded and plans are in place to implement the proposals made. These relate to the introduction of the staffing skill mix across all community teams that will ensure the service can deliver high quality evidenced based interventions consistently across Hampshire. It will also ensure that staff resources are deployed more effectively and efficiently. This is a key component in the introduction of the service model ight from the Start, into Hampshire. Evidence Based Practice Multi-Family Therapy Pilot Based on research data from the Maudsley Specialist Eating Disorder Clinics, there is strong evidence that working with groups of families together is highly effective in sharing skills to manage youngsters with a significant eating disorder, and providing a support network for the families. A pilot project based in West Sussex with Chalkhill (because of high incidence of eating disorder in West Sussex) is being delivered. Staff from each CAMHS community team are being trained in multi-family therapy and are working with the team at Chalkhill to ensure there are good links between acute and community services regarding treatment. The STEPPS programme in CAMHS This programme is for young people with emotional regulation problems which can be the forerunner to a diagnosis of Personality Disorder. enee Harvey, Consultant Psychologist, has successfully introduced the STEPPS programme (group model) for adults, and is helping CAMHS adapt it for use with adolescents. A pilot will be run in Brighton and Hove CAMHS this spring. Links are being established with the CAMHS research lead to further evaluate the efficacy of this model for young people. 3
