Oldham Care Health Commissioning Intentions pdf icon PDF 128 KB

Minutes:

The Board gave consideration to a report which provided an update on the development of Oldham Care’s Commissioning intentions. 

 

The agreed ambition across Oldham was to create the conditions and environment to deliver the vision to ‘See the greatest and fastest possible improvement in the health and wellbeing of the Borough’s residents by 2020/21’.  The Oldham Delivery Model as defined in the Locality Plan 2017-22 outlined the transformational shifts needed to be made as a Partnership to achieve an Inclusive Economy, Co-operative Services and Thriving Communities. 

 

It was proposed to develop commissioning intentions that supported system wide and inclusive working that improved the health and well-being of the population.  An agreement was needed on priority areas of focus and then ensure alignment to transform and work in an integrated function.  ‘Outcomes based commissioning’ was an approach to health care commissioning based on outcomes and also used the population approach, metrics and learning, payment and incentives and co-ordinated delivery across providers.  This would like lead to an increase in the commissioning of lead providers.  It was important to bring forward the outline for the direction of travel for the next financial year.  Performance information would be reviewed and proposed areas of focus outlined.

 

Oldham Cares would be working in line with the commissioning cycle to improve the way the needs of the population were assessed and delivered improved outcomes.  In addition, this inform and support future wellbeing planning and commissioning strategies. 

 

Clarification was provided that the proposals would be lawful and comply with the Council’s Constitution and CCG’s Standing Orders.

 

RESOLVED that next steps on the integration of health intentions with social care intentions be agreed.

Minutes:

The Commissioning Partnership Board gave consideration to a report which which requested approval to commission a provider to design and deliver strengths-based training for Oldham Cares Workforce. 

 

An approach had been recommended which would equip and develop staff to be skilled to have different conversations to achieve different outcomes.  The move to embedding a strengths-based approach across the workforce would enable a one-system approach to changing the way services were assessed and provided.  The training would provide opportunities for relationship building in the community health and adult social care services.  In addition, there were other cohorts of staff and volunteers who would benefit from basic strengths-based approach development.  It was requested that both basic and in-depth strengths-based approaches training be delivered for respective groups.  It was proposed that as part of that the training be commissioned externally.  It was further proposed that as part of this commission, a ‘train-the-trainer’ model be developed which would enable system wide capability and sustainability in the future.  A timeline for the training programme was appended to the report.

 

Options Considered:

Option 1 – Do Nothing

Option 2 – Reduce the Scope of Training

Option 3 – Develop and Apprenticeship Levy Trailblazer

Option 4 – Procure the Full Scope
