The drivers
The Political Drivers
 Simon Stevens
 Chief Executive of the NHS
 Service pressures are intensifying, and longstanding problems
are not going to disappear overnight. As my predecessor
David Nicholson has pointed out, this year is going to be a
challenge and 2015/16 even more so. No one person can fix
everything that needs fixing – certainly not me. Successfully
navigating the next few years is going to take a team effort –
involving the biggest team in the biggest effort the NHS has
ever seen. (April 2014)
The Political Drivers
Improving general practice- A Call to Action (April 2014)
 an ageing population, growing co-morbidities and increasing patient
expectations, resulting in large increase in consultations, especially for
older patients, e.g. 95% growth in consultation rate for people aged 85-89 in
ten years up to 2008/09. The number of people with multiple long term
conditions set to grow from 1.9 to 2.9 million from 2008 to 2018;
 increasing pressure on NHS financial resources, which will intensify further
from 2015/16;
 growing dissatisfaction with access to services. The most recent GP Patient
Survey shows further reductions in satisfaction with access, both for inhours and out-of-hours services. 76% of patients rate overall experience of
making an appointment as good;
 persistent inequalities in access and quality of primary care, including
twofold variation in GPs and nurses per head of population between more
and less deprived areas;
 growing reports of workforce pressures including recruitment and
retention problems.
The Political Drivers
Improving General Practice- A Call to Action (2014)
Phase 1 report
Better partnerships:
a more innovative approach to planning and delivering
services by way of shared learning and ideas
 Empowering clinicians:
 ensuring high-quality support for innovation and
improvement, developing networks to allow more rapid
spread of innovation, supporting general practice in
developing new models of provision, and releasing time
for patient care and service improvement.
The Political Drivers
 Previous papers:
 Healthy Life's, Healthy People; Our Strategy for Public
Health in England (2010)
 Unleashing innovation and liberating professional
 Empowering local leadership and encourage wider
responsibility to improve everyone's health and wellbeing
The Political Drivers
 Previous papers
 Equality and Excellence; Liberating the NHS (2010)
 Moving commissioning to GP’s will mean redesign and
patient pathways is always clinically-led
 Autonomy for providers
 Create the largest and most vibrant social enterprise
sector in the world
Advanced roles
 ‘clinical specialists with an extended
scope of practice i.e. working beyond
the recognised scope of practice of the
profession of interest in innovative or
non-traditional roles’.
Advanced roles
 Drivers associated with ‘modernisation’
 Service redesign, staff and skill shortages, new health
care technologies, improvements in quality, cost
 Professional aspirations
 Increased job satisfaction, autonomy in practice, role
and career development
Advanced roles
 Nursing
 AHP’s
 Meeting the Challenge- A Strategy for
the Allied Health Professions (2000)
Advanced roles
However, the role of the allied health professions has too often been
undervalued or neglected. The Government is committed to changing
this. The NHS Plan already sets out clear commitments to these staff,
in particular that there will be, by 2004,
 over 6,500 more therapists and other health professionals,
 4,450 more therapists and other key professional staff being trained
 new therapist consultant posts
And we are committed to expanding the roles which the allied health
professions play in health and social care, ensuring they can use their
skills flexibly and creatively to the benefit of patients.
