NHS Sheffield CCG Commissioning Plan

Report of the Deputy Accountable Officer, NHS Sheffield CCG




Sandie Buchan from Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) attended the meeting and presented the report.



The CCG Commissioning Plan had recently been refreshed and the new plan detailed work that had been undertaken and challenges ahead.  The plan also included the Better Care Fund Programme and aligned with the Health and Wellbeing Board Strategy and the Accountable Care Partnership (ACP) objectives.



Terry Hudsen noted the different way to bring commissioning together and hoped that the stronger position would reassure the Board.



Judy Robinson asked how the Commissioning Principles would involve the people of Sheffield and noted that there were opportunities for different provision within the Home Care Sector.



Sandie Buchan informed the Board that the CCG engaged with and collected feedback from the public.  The Plan steered and monitored delivery of services and feedback was an integral part of development and delivery. The CCG looked at all opportunities available and was working with Sheffield City Council (SCC) to see what was available, including within the independent sector.



Maddy Desforges welcomed the focus on health inequalities and felt that it showed top down service delivery.  There was a need to work with communities to look at assets and work from the bottom up.  People needed to focus on wellbeing.



Sandie Buchan responded that the CCG wanted to do more on health inequalities and this was ongoing development work.



Terry Hudsen stated that that the report was important as it mapped the organisational commissioning intentions.  There was also a need to articulate its ambitions.  Public engagement was always tricky, but it should be noted that the CCG had been rated outstanding for the last 12 months for its engagement.
