Everyone Counts: Planning for Patients (NHS Commissioning Board / NHS Choices)

[Brief references to many of these items feature in Dementia and Elderly Care: the Latest Evidence Newsletter (RWNHST), Volume 3 Issue 5, January 2013].

Summary

The NHS Commissioning Board’s “Everyone Counts: Planning for Patients 2013/14” report covers the incentives and tools which are intended to improve services from April 2013, under the new NHS where improvement will be driven by clinical commissioners. This guidance is coupled with further documents which help local clinicians deliver responsive health services, improve outcomes for patients and address local priorities. Health inequalities and the rights patients under the NHS Constitution are to be more important. Other important aspects include:

  • More routine NHS care seven days a week.
  • More availability and use of clinical performance data to help quality improvements.
  • Collecting patients’ views on the care received.

NHS Commissioning Board “Narrative” on Integrated Care

The NHS Commissioning Board has published this “narrative” describing integrated care, in response to the NHS Future Forum’s recommendation for a common understanding of this term on the part of the public and health professionals. The NHS CB Mandate specified an objective to “drive better integration of care”, i.e. care centred around the whole person, coordinated around the needs of patients, families and carers and which feels “joined up” to the individual.
