CROYDON CLINICAL COMMISSIONING - COMMISSIONING INTENTIONS

The Croydon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is defining its commissioning intentions, setting up the continuation of a number of transformation programmes with a range of partners which focuses on focus integration. In terms of service redesign, intentions are mapped out under Care Settings (including prevention and community care) and Care Pathway/disease group (including older people, end of life, children, young people and maternity, mental health, learning disabilities).

In terms of contracting approach, the CCG gave formal notice to radically chance contracting arrangements for services for older people in Croydon. It intends to sign 10-year contracts with an Accountable Provider Alliance (consisting of Age UK Croydon, Croydon Council Social Care, Croydon Health Services NHS Trust, GP Federation, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust) to deliver health and social services for older people under an outcomes and capitation based contracts. The APA will manage resources more preventively and is expected to also sub-contract to achieve this.(From Health & Well Being Board meeting, 9th December 2015)

Join us at our next CVSA meeting taking place on 3rd February 2016, when Brenda Scanlan (Director, Integrated Commissining Unit) will present on Outcomes Based Commissioning for over 65s - working together to improve the health and social care of older people).
