Since the informal Board meeting in December, guidance had been received from the Department of Health including details of draft contracts. These are now being worked through by the GMS Implementation Group and the PMS groups. Central to the new contracts is the development of local enhanced services which will be included in the draft Operational Plan. A set of guidelines had also been received for new PMS Contracts and Wallasey & Birkenhead groups were working together on these to ensure that quality measures were implemented across the PCT. The Board noted the action to date regarding the implementation of the new GMS Contract. (ii) Field Site Dental Project and Service Level Agreement (SLA ) Ms Kathy Doran, Chief Executive, on behalf of Mr John South, Director of Primary Care, presented the report to members and welcomed that comments from the Informal Board meeting on the emphasis on benefits to patients had been acted upon. Ms Doran informed members that a 5% activity increase had been agreed within the SLA.

Ms Kathy Doran confirmed that monitoring would be taking place within the Steering Group and by the Page 3of 10

4 Dental Commissioning team which is to be set up to focus on the dental health needs of the population. Notification had been received from the Modernisation Agency that the software support for computerised practices would be funded. The Chief Executive also informed members that Mr John South is working nationally with the Department of Health on Dental Contracts due to be implemented nationally in The Board welcomed this radical service redesign which should improve quality of care for all.

The next report to be presented to the Board will cover the period from Page 4of 10

5 January 2003 to April 2004 to bring the reporting procedure in line with April to April reporting. Ms Jane Harvey, Director of Public Health, informed members that Dr Katy Kidd, Medical Director, had agreed to be the Director of Infection Control. Mrs Cathy Maddaford, Director of Nursing & Quality, gave a short presentation on the Risk Management Process, showing the structures that are in place to ensure connectivity. The Board RESOLVED to approve the Risk Management Procedures and Reports. (ii) Continuing Health Care Update Mrs Cathy Maddaford, Director of Nursing & Quality, updated members on issues within Continuing Health Care (CHC). The new eligibility criteria are now in place with the Multi Agency CHC Operational Group identifying more detailed operational issues. The need for a Care Manager had been identified to handle complicated cases. As part of audit requirements, the monthly Community Care panel has established a robust framework for the recording of documentation leading to a decision. Training of key people is currently being undertaken with the SHA and this will be cascaded down. The logistics of doing so to large numbers locally are under consideration. An independent audit of how the eligibility criteria are being implemented is to be carried out within Cheshire & Merseyside with planned site visits both at strategic and operational levels. Mrs Cathy Maddaford informed members that a Restitution panel had been set up by the SHA and that she and Mr John South, Director of Primary Care were members of said panel. This panel would only review the decisions on those patients who had been turned down for CHC Restitution. (iii) Quarterly Report on Complaints The Board welcomed the trend of the numbers of compliments outweighing the numbers of complaints. It was agreed that Team Brief should be used to stimulate all departments to forward comments and that the launch of the PALs Service would be an opportunity to raise the profile of the Hotline. The Board noted the Quarterly Complaints Information. Items for Noting. The Board received and noted the draft minutes of a meeting of Page 5of 10

6 the Corporate & Clinical Governance Committee held on 19 January Mr Peter Eaglesfield referred to the high quality of the reports presented to the Committee and suggested details should be circulated more widely. Ms Jane Harvey confirmed that opportunities for publishing details were being explored. Core Aim 4: Tackle ill health and its wider determinants through 117/04 partnership working with any individual or organisation which add value to the delivery of our core purpose; promote health improving behaviour and fully engage in the protection of the population s health. Public Health Update Ms Jane Harvey, Director of Public Health, presented the update on the issues currently facing Public Health and informed members that key items would be discussed in more detail at the Informal Board Meeting in February Ms Jane Harvey announced the appointment of Ms Sue Drew as Deputy Director Public Health. Mrs Muriel Downs, Chairman, offered her congratulations on behalf of the Board. Items for Noting The Board received and noted the Minutes of a Meeting of the Modernisation Executive Committee held on 27 October 2003, the draft minutes of a meeting of the Modernisation Executive Committee of 25 November 2003 and of an Extraordinary Meeting of 15 December Ms Kathy Doran, Chief Executive, informed members that the Extraordinary Meeting had been called to discuss the continued funding for the Citizens Advice Bureau and Beechwood schemes. Support for these schemes had been given in principle by both the Modernisation Executive and the NRF Policy Group. Discussions were taking place with both schemes in order to update their respective SLAs. Formal approval for continued funding is anticipated through the LSP (Local Strategic Partnership) in March. Core Aim 5: Encourage a culture which promotes innovation, 118/04 service improvement, audit and research and development Service Redesign Funding Report Ms Kathy Doran, Chief Executive, presented a report on the funding issues for Service Redesign. At the Board Meeting in September 2003, it had been agreed that the programme would be funded by a mixture of capacity funding and deferred repayment of brokerage which the PCT had discussed with the SHA. However, since that time, and due to changes in capital to revenue brokerage arrangements, the SHA could not guarantee to defer repayment. As a result, the PCT with Page 6of 10

7 colleagues in Bebington and West Wirral has reviewed the programme put to the September Board and is proposing a tightening up of the criteria for funding future schemes. The Service Redesign Group recommends that no further schemes are implemented in the short term unless the scheme is self-financing, funding is available from another source, eg. Modernisation monies, or the scheme is being developed in response to another policy initiative, eg. GMS contracts. Work on service redesign will continue so that, should funding become available, schemes will be able to be implemented. This will allow for schemes to be thoroughly tested before final implementation. In addition, the PCTs propose to ask the SHA whether its position on the proposed deferred repayment of brokerage can be reconsidered in light of developing understanding of the local and national financial position for 2004/05. The Board RESOLVED to accept and approve the recommendations from the Service Redesign Group. (ii) Service Redesign Update Dr Shyamal Mukherjee and Dr Abhi Mantgani, Medical Directors, gave an update on key issues within Service Redesign. Mr Peter Eaglesfield, Non-Executive Director, raised concerns about the waiting lists within Urology Acute Trust Services. Dr Mantgani confirmed that discussions were taking place to resolve this. Mr Joe Corkill, Non-Executive Director, queried how changes were communicated to patients. Members were informed that this was considered in the context of each scheme. Ms Pam Broadhead, Intermediate Services Manager, is responsible for co-ordinating implementation of the process from media coverage to notices and targeted leaflets in practices. Core Aim 6: Deliver accessible services which actively seek and 119/04 reflect the aspirations and our patients, the public, carers and our staff and contractors. Core Aim 7: Develop efficient communication and information processes supported by modern technology. National Programme for IT (NPFIT) Mr Patrick Reed, Director Wirral Health Informatics Service (WHIS), presented a report on current progress to deliver the national programme for NPFIT, outlining the position to date on implementing the Wirral Electronic Health Record (EHR). The national strategy for NPFIT is to deliver a national programme for IT in the NHS. As part of this process a Local Service Provider (LSP) Page 7of 10

8 has been appointed to work with the Wirral Health Economy to deliver the agenda although the full specification on offer is not as yet clarified. Funding for the Local Delivery Agreement (LDA) is anticipated to be around 4m per year for the Wirral Health Economy. The SHA would be contacting the PCT to ensure sign up to the LDA by March They had asked that the Board agree delegated powers to the Chief Executive to allow this to happen. Given the lack of clarity re the specification, Ms Kathy Doran, Chief Executive, proposed that it would be appropriate to use delegated powers when sufficient detail had been given of the potential benefit to Wirral patients and health professionals. Mr Patrick Reed agreed to report back to the March Board to give further clarification of the service. Mr Patrick Reed explained the scope of the Wirral Electronic Health Record (EHR) project and gave details of the proposed publicity campaign to inform the public of the fact that their details were to be shared and of the confidentiality safeguards built into the service. Members of the public would be able to opt out of the system. But if they did not opt out consent would be taken as implied. This approach had been developed following national guidance and legal advice. First contact for the public would be through the PALS Officers who have had briefing and training to support this. The Board RESOLVED to agree delegated powers of approval to Ms Kathy Doran, Chief Executive, for the PCT s Local Delivery Agreement and confirmed their support for the EHR subject to the consultation with the public as described in the report. (ii) Communications and PPI Update The Board received and noted a Communications and Patient & Public Involvement (PPI) update. The update included draft minutes of the Communications & PPI Strategy Group Meeting held on 3 December 2003 and a PALs Report. Ms Kathy Doran, Chief Executive, informed members that first appointments had been made to the Birkenhead and Wallasey Patient Forum. A meeting would be organised with Board members in due course. Core Aim 8: Ensure value for money and good financial 120/04 management Finance Report for the Month Ended 31 December 2003 Mr Mike Brereton, Director of Finance, reported that the financial position shows an overspend of 1,445,497 with a forecast overspend at 31 March 2004 of 3m. The slight improvement from the figure given Page 8of 10

9 at the end of October 2003 is due to primary care prescribing savings and both the LHDs and the Medicines Management Team should be congratulated for their role in this. Plans remain in place to deliver a balanced position for the end of the financial year. For the first nine months of the financial year the PCT has achieved 88% on the number of invoices paid within target and 97% on the value of invoices paid. This is an encouraging improving trend. Mrs Muriel Downs, Chairman, asked whether there would be available cash to fund Continuing Care payments before the year end. Mr Mike Brereton confirmed that the current cash position allows for these payments to be made. The Board noted both the financial position at 31 December 2003 and the forecast outturn position for the end of the financial year. It also noted the work being undertaken by the Finance and Performance Improvement Committee in developing a recovery plan for the current financial year and a further recovery plan to assist the whole local economy reach recurring balance over the next three financial years. Items for noting The Board received and noted the Minutes of a Meeting of the Finance and Performance Improvement Committee held on 21 November & 12 December /04 ANY OTHER BUSINESS Wirral Local Health Community Meeting Ms Kathy Doran, Chief Executive, tabled the letter from the Strategic Health Authority on the Wirral Local Health Community Meeting held on 15 December She noted the presentation given by Ms Maggie Johnson on the change in service provision for DVTs which is having a major impact on work in hospital.
