Dr Andrea Jones, Chair of Darlington Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) addressed the Board to present on the NHS's Five Year Forward View which she commented was one of the most fundamentally important documents that she had read in her career. It acknowledges, she said, that the NHS can't continue with the current care delivery model.
The CCG took over from the Primary Care Trust (PCT) two years ago but is different to the PCT as it is a member-organisation comprised of 11 GP practices in Darlington.
Andrea outlined the achievements of the NHS and commented that she feels that it has improved. However, she noted that demand for care is rapidly growing due to a tidal-wave of avoidable illness due to unhealthy lifestyles (smoking, excessive alcohol and overweight/obesity problems) and that 70% of the NHS budget is now spent on long-term conditions.
Andrea explained that new care models are being developed and for each area it is affected by what is available around them. There are two main models being encouraged, GP Expansion bringing more care into the community so that hospitals are used for operations and serious illness only and PACS (Primary and Acute Care System) where hospitals would take most of the ownership of care. She suggested that a hybrid of the two might be the most appropriate for Darlington and said that she hopes that in ten years, care will look and more importantly feel better.
The model needs to be developed from the bottom up and structural changes need to be minimized. Andrea outlined the steps that the CCG will be taking to meet the three strands introduced earlier by Ken and said that it might be that two models are used, one for urgent care and one for planned care.
Andrea confirmed that she would be very interested in doing that and that the Forward View document seemed permissive that they can look at new ways of doing things. Peter and Gillian Peel said they would pass on contact details to Andrea.
Sara Williams offered to assist Andrea in accessing the 50 businesses based at Lingfield.
