3 Part 1 Chief Executive s statement on quality I am delighted to introduce our Quality Account for Heart of Kent Hospice provides specialist and individualised palliative care to the population of Maidstone, Aylesford, Tonbridge and Malling and surrounding villages. Our care is provided free of charge to nearly 1,000 patients and families each year in their homes, in nursing and care homes and in the Hospice. As an independent charity we are not part of the NHS but we work in collaboration with local NHS services. We receive a grant from the NHS which contributes to 18% of our annual costs. Heart of Kent Hospice is committed to delivering a high quality and cost-effective service to patients and their families and this report highlights the actions we have taken to improve our services in the last year and our key priorities for the coming year. The safety, experience and outcomes for our patients and their families is of utmost importance to us. Over the last year, we have strengthened our clinical governance structure and audit programme to ensure we can identify improvement areas and continue to develop our services. We actively continue to seek the views of our service users through comments cards, surveys and our service user group; this feedback enables us to ensure our service planning is patient-centred at all times. Together with our Board of Trustees, I would like to thank our team of staff and volunteers for their hard work and commitment to providing outstanding care to our patients and their families over the last year. I am responsible for overseeing the preparation of this report and its contents. To the best of my knowledge the information reported in this Quality Account is accurate and a fair representation of the quality of healthcare services provided by our Hospice. Sarah Pugh Chief Executive June

There were no appropriate national ethically approved research studies in palliative care, which patients under the care of Heart of Kent Hospice were asked to participate in Quality improvement and innovation goals agreed with commissioners The Hospice s income from West Kent CCG in was not conditional on achieving quality improvement and innovation goals through the commissioning for quality and innovation payment framework because it was received in the form of a grant. The Hospice was required to submit quarterly data to the CCG including: Number of referrals and source of referrals Ethnicity, gender and age Percentage of cancer and non-cancer patients referred Number of community contacts, new, follow up and telephone IPU bed availability and occupancy Deaths: total on IPU, at home, and number of preferred place of care who stated a preferred place of care Number of continuing care patients Number of bereavement contacts Number of incidents including drug incidents Number of day therapy places, attendance and complexity Number of complaints and comments Number of individual services referrals and contacts What our regulators say about the Hospice Heart of Kent Hospice is registered with the Care Quality Commission and its current registration status is unconditional. An unannounced routine inspection took place in February Heart of Kent Hospice is proud of its excellent reputation for providing palliative care to people across Maidstone, Aylesford, Tonbridge, Malling and the surrounding villages. We are, therefore, very 7

8 disappointed that Heart of Kent Hospice was given an overall rating of Requires Improvement following this inspection. We are, however, delighted to have received an Outstanding rating for providing a Caring service. The Hospice was aware of most of the issues outlined in the report prior to the inspection. We had been taking steps to address these issues through an improvement plan, as CQC have highlighted in the report. CQC acknowledged that many changes were already in place but required time to embed fully across the Hospice. CQC reported that Hospice staff were attentive and kind, demonstrating dignity and respect at all times, and often performing beyond the scope of their duties. CQC spoke to patients, relatives, visitors and healthcare professionals who were all overwhelmingly positive about the service the Hospice provides. Our Outstanding rating for providing a Caring service demonstrates the commitment of Heart of Kent Hospice staff and volunteers to providing the very best care for our patients and their families. We take our responsibilities very seriously and we are confident that our ongoing plan, which has been approved by the Hospice s Board of Trustees, will resolve the issues identified. The full report can be found at Data quality In accordance with the Department of Health, Heart of Kent Hospice submits annual Minimum Data Set (MDS) returns to the National Council for Palliative Care. Heart of Kent Hospice, as a specialist palliative care provider, does not submit data information to the Hospital Episodes Statistics because we are not eligible to participate in this scheme. Heart of Kent Hospice has a dedicated Information Officer and continues to monitor its data through its monthly Clinical Management Meetings and clinical governance structure. In we once again successfully met the Information Governance Toolkit requirements and the annual assessment we submitted was approved. This enables us to use NHS Connecting for Health systems and services such as N3. This will enable the medical and clinical teams at the Hospice to share and access relevant patient information in a secure manner and improve the overall coordination of care. 8

9 Part 3 Review of quality performance 3.1 Governance structure The Hospice clinical governance structure was reviewed in with Clinical Management Team meetings established monthly rather than quarterly and a Patient Care Leadership Group meeting quarterly. An Audit and Research Group was also established. Trustees attend quarterly Patient Services Committee meetings which are reported to the Board. Board meetings include clinical data and Patient Services reports at each meeting. BOARD OF TRUSTEES PATIENT SERVICES COMMITTEE CLINICAL to MANAGEMENT quality TEAM HOSPICE USER GROUP PATIENT CARE LEADERSHIP GROUP AUDIT GROUP 3.2 Board of Trustees commitment to quality Representat ives from all The Board of Trustees is fully committed to the quality agenda. The Hospice has a wellestablished governance structure as outlined above with members of the Board of Services Trustees Clinical having an active role in ensuring the Hospice provides a high quality service in accordance Information with its Statement of Purpose. Officer In 2015, a Trustee visit was conducted by a member of the Board and a report provide to the Board. During the visit, the Trustee spoke to patients, their families and staff. The Board is confident that the treatment and care provided by the Hospice is of high quality and is cost effective. 3.3 Comparison of Heart of Kent Hospice over a four-year period from 2011/ / / / / / /12 Inpatient unit % New patients % Bed occupancy % Patients discharged Average LoS cancer patients Average LoS non-cancer patient Outpatient Centre % new patients % sessions attended 68 46*** 56 94** 78 Community Palliative Care Team % new patients % new patients non-cancer Telephone calls 18,912 14,340 13,818 10,426 8,227 Total number of visits 4,741 4,184 3,996 2,701 2,272 ** Inaccurate data due to repetition in recording *** During a change process and staff recruitment issues in Magnolia Place, attendance was reduced to three days per week, the data from Quarter will show a significant improvement and plans to open four days a week from January

10 Overall during the Hospice cared for 1116 patients ( : 880). We cared for 579 patients who died in ( : 639). IPU data has remained fairly static with bed occupancy slightly increased since last year. The Outpatient Centre has seen an increase in referrals in by 62% in with an increase of sessions attended by 68%. As well as collecting this data we count daily spaces used by way of complexity i.e. 1 space = ambulant self-caring patient, 2 = requiring 2 to transfer and help with toileting, 3 = patients requiring hoisting and all care. This form of scoring informs staffing levels and attendance allocation. Referrals to the Community Palliative Care Team have increased by 75% and new noncancer patients by 32%, this rise in referral numbers has been impacted on by dementia patient referrals and the Hospice broadening its scope to care for all end of life patients irrespective of their disease or illness including elderly frail patients. We have also chosen to measure our performance against the following metrics: Indicator 2015/ / / / /12 Referrals to the service IPU admissions Number of complaints Number of complaints 0 missing upheld Number of RIDDOR (1 staff 0 reportable incidents 1 volunteer) Number of patient 34 Data Data accidents (slips, trips, falls) unavailable unavailable Number of patients admitted with MRSA Number of patients contracted MRSA whilst on IPU Number of patients admitted with Clostridium difficile Number of patient contracted Clostridium difficile whilst on IPU Feedback from patients and their relatives During the Hospice carried out patient and carer surveys in the Inpatient Unit.
