Place Digital Intentions and priorities
ICS organisations have been involved in digital workshops and discussions over the past few months working to define Digital Intentions for the Richmond Place and create a digital strategy. The aim of the strategy is to attract and retain health and social care staff and deliver a more connected service to local communities.
The committee heard about how the work has taken a ‘people first’ approach, bringing organisations together to establish the current problems as well as future opportunities with the ultimate aim of connecting digital systems across acute, primary care and community providers across Richmond to provide a digital backbone that improves care.
Next steps include:
- All Partners to agree the Digital Intentions and draft project areas in this paper
- Establish the digital group and governance to establish a digital culture across place
- Design and prioritise the agreed projects:
- With all partners input
- Highlighting the quick wins and longer term requirements
- Developed in accordance with the Place Digital Intentions
- Agreeing the resources required to deliver the digital priorities
- Review the approach in April 2024:
- Agreeing the work plan for 2024/25
- Agreeing the 5 year vision for digital development
Quality and performance
Richmond Place finance update
The committee heard an update from the Kingston and Richmond Place Integrated Financial Performance Group (IFPG). This followed the update provided in May which outlined the aims of the IFPG.
The purpose of the IFPG is to:
- Monitor Kingston and Richmond place financial performance
- Review place-based risk and opportunities
- Support transformation (linked closely to the Transformation delivery Group)
- Support cost effective delivery of place wide objectives to include pooling resources for capital and revenue for aligned objectives
Key principles are:
- An open book approach across partners
- Ensuring value for money across place to support the improvement of outcomes for our patients
The achievements of the last few months were highlighted, including the tracking of potential funding streams and supporting the financial elements of the Better Care Fund review.
It was also noted that the financial position across place continues to be very challenging and there is a recognition that we need to work differently together to achieve the required financial and workforce sustainability.
Next steps are to support the priorities emerging through the Transformation Delivery Group/A&E Delivery Board.
Mental health investment proposal process
The South West London Mental Health Partnership Delivery Group agreed a common investment area 24/25 template for South West London and St George’s Mental Health Trust, South West London places and South London and Maudsley to use at its July 2023 meeting.
The committee heard about the new process including return of investment, the scoring system being used to prioritise proposals and the timelines associated with the new process.
The 24/25 funding allocations for place have not yet been agreed, and are not expected until January 2024, though a working assumption is that it will be the same as this year’s allocations. The process is led by mental health commissioners at Place linking in with the system and the trust.
The committee has been asked to consider the new investment proposal process and discuss any key investment priorities for Richmond as a place.
Communications and engagement
The committee was given an overview of engagement work at Place between April and June 2023. They were also briefed on plans for a forward plan, linked to transformation programmes of work.
The committee was also given an update on the priority communications and engagement campaigns for South West London which cover winter pressures and demand management.
- NHS app – freeing up capacity in primary care
- Mental health – encouraging earlier intervention and longer-term demand management
- Vaccinations – preventing hospitalisations for flu and Covid-19
- Pharmacy first – reducing demand for A&E walk-ins and same-day GP practice appointments
