    Minutes:

    Declarations of interest:

     

    None

     

    Witnesses:

     

    Lisa Compton, Operations Director, North West Surrey CCG

     

    Key points raised during the discussion:

     

    1. The Officer introduced the case study and gave a brief summary of the work being done in relation to the Bedser Locality Hub and the support that the Hub had provided to local residents. It was highlighted that the locality hubs had treated over 1800 patients since opening and that it was having a positive impact on reducing attendance at acute hospitals in the area. Members noted that there had been a reduction in non-elective activity in Woking as a result of the Bedser Hub due to increased provision of pre-planned care. The Officer presented three specific case studies to the Board which allowed members to see the  impact that the Hub were having on residents.
    2. Members inquired about the number of patients that were being treated by the Hub and asked if the locality hubs had the capacity to treat more. Officers confirmed that around 140 patients were being treated weekly but that the Hub had the capacity to go up to 160.    
    3. A discussion took place regarding the use of  community patient care to prevent patients from having to be transported to and from locality hubs. Officers highlighted that a community transport provider had been commissioned and that, if needed, patients could be transported to the Hubs in order to be treated. It was highlighted  that this had a positive impact on service users as bringing people together rather than treating them individually prevented patients from feeling socially isolated.
    4. Members sought clarification on  claims that residents would lose access to their GP if they were referred to locality hubs.  Officers confirmed that residents would retain the option to be treated by their GP should they chose to do so.
    5. It was highlighted that residents had given very good feedback on the Bedser Hub which was partly due to the availability of longer appointments.Officers stated that previously patients stayed in one room while doctors moved between them. Feedback then showed that patients did not like this as they were being left on their own on occasion so this was then changed. Feedback was shown to be very important to the Locality Hubs and that they would continue to use it to make improvements.  

     

    Actions/ further information to be provided:

     

    None.

     

    RESOLVED:

     

    The Health and Wellbeing Board agreed to note the case study.
