Bracknell & Ascot Clinical Commissioning Group: Operating Plans pdf icon PDF 1 MB

The Board is asked to endorse the collective commissioning ambitions of Bracknell & Ascot, Slough and Windsor, Ascot & Maidenhead Clinical Commissioning Groups for the period April 2017 to March 2019. The Plan has been informed by NHS England (NHSE) Planning Guidance, the Frimley Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) and key local transformation programmes such as New Vision of Care.

Minutes:

The Board was asked to endorse the collective commissioning ambitions of Bracknell & Ascot, Slough & Windsor, Ascot & maidenhead Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) for the period April 2017 to March 2019.

 

Dr Tong reported that this was the finalised version of the Operating Plan and that it demonstrated a good fit with the Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) and how delivery would be undertaken.

 

It was reported that much of the Operating Plan reflected local plans and priorities and there shouldn’t be any surprises. The STP could be seen as having two layers, the first consisting of activity which it was desirable to deliver across the whole STP and then a second layer which consisted of activity that needed to be targeted within areas of the footprint.

 

It was noted that the Board would have a role to play in driving the pace of this work.

 

The Board considered how best to communicate messages relating to the STP to the public and made the following points:

 

·         It was noted that the STP was written in a way which wasn’t easy for the public to access or understand and it was important to pull out one or two key messages to communicate to the public.

·         It was suggested that Self Care and the changing role between the public and health practitioners would be a good message to communicate. In addition, transforming General Practice and the message that it was not always necessary to see a GP, a range of health professionals may be able to assist.

·         Dr Tong reported that an easy read version of the STP would also be produced and that he would follow this up.

 

It was agreed that Jane Hogg would arrange a workshop with a mix of expertise and differing relationships with the public to consider preparation to communicate joint messages and be clear about what needed to be achieved.

 

RESOLVED that the Board endorsed the collective commissioning ambitions of Bracknell & Ascot, Slough & Windsor, Ascot & maidenhead Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) for the period April 2017 to March 2019.
