Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Devolution – Memorandum of Understanding

The overriding purpose of the initiative represented in this Memorandum of Understanding is to ensure the greatest and fastest possible improvement to the health and wellbeing of the 2.8 million citizens of Greater Manchester (GM). This requires a more integrated approach to the use of the existing health and care resources – around £6bn in 2015/16 – as well as transformational changes in the way in which services are delivered across Greater Manchester.

Provider and Commissioner Development Support to deliver the primary care transformation agenda

The information here has been gathered through extensive engagement with a range of providers of development support who are currently working with London CCGs to support the implementation of primary care transformation in London.

This transformation is a significant piece of work and can only be achieved by all parts of the system committing to work together, and adopting new ways of working which in itself will require support. For example, practices looking to collaborate and CCGs looking to commission across pathways to improve quality of care for patients.

The development support offers available to commissioners and providers have been summarised here at a high level. The joint effort between NHS England (London region) and the Office of London CCGs will help to navigate the development support options available which best meet organisations’ needs and priorities. The Office of London CCGs has kindly offered to host this information on their website.

Sharing learning and good practice in meeting the London quality standards

In September 2014, London’s acute hospitals came together to share good practice on the changes and improvements they have made in meeting the London quality standards for acute medicine and emergency general surgery. NHS England (London region) held the Shared Learning Event: Meeting the London quality standards to facilitate shared learning between London’s acute hospitals and commissioners, and to support them in their ongoing implementation of the London quality standards. The event included presentations from:

  • Royal Free Hospital on consultant delivered care and training in emergency general surgery;
  • North Middlesex University Hospital on consultant delivered care and training in acute medicine;
  • Kingston Hospital on access to diagnostics for interventional radiology and endoscopy;
  • The Whittington Hospital on ambulatory care and patient experience;
  • St Thomas’ Hospital on multi-disciplinary team assessment; and
  • Homerton University Hospital on access to and provision of emergency theatre.

The presentations highlighted the learning, good practice and improvement processes used to make progress towards meeting the quality standards and this was followed by an opportunity for workshop attendees to discuss good practice and improvement processes used to further progress meeting the standards.

The shared learning has been used to develop a Good Practice Guide that includes:

  • progress of London hospitals towards meetings the London quality standards;
  • abstracts of the hospital presentations describing their experiences; and
  • key learning, improvement steps undertaken and challenges encountered.

The Good Practice Guide aims to provide a tool to support London’s commissioners and acute hospitals in the ongoing implementation of the London quality standards.
