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 (incl prevention and community care) and Care Pathway/disease group (incl. 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 preventatively and is expected to also sub-contract to achieve this.
