Integrated Care

With the changing NHS landscape and our members facing more challenges, collaborative working is key to delivering successful outcomes.

The Hub’s Integrated Care category is designed to facilitate a coordinated network for health, public health, social care and local authority services in supporting the work of Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) and Integrated Care Systems (ICSs). Our initial areas of focus are Wound, Stoma and Continence Care.

Our approach is to bring Commissioners, Providers and Industry together to drive standardisation, pathway efficiencies and collaboration for the whole of the East of England health economy; this approach has delivered Standardised Parenteral Nutrition Formulations and  a Centralised Homecare Governance Model with savings to our customers in excess of £10 million, whilst improving patient safety and clinical governance. 

Data is key to our work in Integrated Care and and we have invested a significant amount of time into producing STP and ICS spend reports which detail total spend across systems and through all supply routes.  In 2020, we will be working to map spend data and population data, and ensuring member organisations are gaining maximum cost efficiencies. 

We are working closely with national bodies such as the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England and NHS Improvement to ensure our customers are prepared for the move towards system-based measures and reporting. 

Whilst supporting systems, it is important that our individual customers’ needs are met; through our workplan we aim to support: 

  • Clinical Commissioning Groups QIPP plans 
  • Trust Cost Improvement Plans (CIPs) 
  • Reducing unwanted variation in spend and clinical practice (Lord Carter Review) 
  • Meeting the recommendations of the NHS LTP
