Introduction Welcome to our General Practice Forward View (GPFV) delivery plan for Leeds. Our starting point is a recognition that a good standard of primary care is already being delivered across large parts of the city. We recognise the unique strength of general practice in providing continuity of care for patients through the registered list and that the public relies on primary care services for the health and wellbeing of themselves and their family. We recognise this as one of the great strengths of the NHS if general practice fails, the NHS fails. In the current environment of increased demand and finite resources, patients and professionals need to think creatively about how and why services are delivered and used in order to sustain and transform high quality general practice. Our plan is set in the context of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) and the Leeds Plan (figures 1 and 2) both of which set out the vital role that general practice will play in achieving sustainability across the whole health and social care system. Put bluntly unless we are able to transform the way in which primary and community services are commissioned and provided, we will not deliver the STP or Leeds Plan. This GPFV delivery plan describes the steps we will take, in partnership, with the 105 general practices across Leeds, to build on the many existing approaches to collaboration and service integration - using the GP registered list as the cornerstone to ensure: Figure 1 Tests and cross-cutting programmes within the Leeds Plan Patients will have an increasingly improved experience of using GP services; Patients will be increasingly involved in managing their own care and experience better health and wellbeing outcomes; The Leeds pound invested in general practice will be used to better effect for maximum impact and gain; The overarching aim of system change to support people to stay in their own homes, families or community and that people will only spend time in hospital or residential care when needed; The move to a system-wide population health management approach that secures collaborative and integrated ways of working though new models of care based around general practice; Staff working within general practice will feel supported and confident with the vision of where general practice is going and how it will feel in the future. We have recognised the challenges and risks in responding to this ambitious agenda and have committed to work collectively in Leeds to bring about the transformation of general practice through workforce development; reducing the workload; environmental and technological improvements in infrastructure; redesigning care including population health accountability; using available investment and aligning system incentives. We have articulated the work required to achieve our ambition through six ambitions for general practice described in detail in the following slide. The primary care transformation initiatives and models of care described within the GPFV
delivery plan underpin the delivery of the Leeds Plan. Figure 2 Annotated Leeds Plan on Page to demonstrate links to GPFV Delivery Plan Page 4 Draft. Version 0.22| 7/12/16 2. Vision for general practice Our Six Ambitions for general practice by 2020/2021 across Leeds are to: 1. Ensure there is a motivated, engaged, integrated and healthy workforce with the right skills, behaviours and training, available in the right numbers. 2. Ensure all patients registered with a GP in Leeds: - understand how, when and are able, to access routine and urgent primary medical care when needed; and - are empowered to manage their own conditions to live fulfilling lives in their community. 3. Fully use and prioritise our collective estates and technology resources we have available to improve the quality of primary medical care and New Models of Care experienced and delivered by patients and professionals. 4. Free up more time in general practice to plan and deliver better care for patients and professionals by streamlining workload in primary care and between different care providers. 5. Redesign the way care is delivered by progressing a whole system model which focusses on a place-based approach where everybody has a part to play, both citizens and services together. 6. Increase the investment and resourcing into general practice and primary care through maximising funding opportunities Underpinning principles The three Leeds CCGs will work, with one commissioning voice, to achieve these ambitions by: Working with patients, practices and partners to be a constant listener and to ensure implementing our ambitions responds to local needs. Working with commissioning partners and key local providers to align local contracts and incentives to deliver the priority health and wellbeing outcomes for populations in Leeds. Improving the quality and efficiency of general practice through greater working at scale. Supporting general practice to establish their Provider Voice across the city as a key provider of New Models of Care. Fully using our delegated commissioning responsibilities to align system incentives and use new contract forms to commission for improved health outcomes for patients registered with a Leeds GP. Ensuring commissioning intentions and decisions support the wider shift to a population health management approach . Delivering the GP Forward View in Leeds Page 5 Draft. Version 0.22 | 7/12/16 3. What will be different when we achieve the ambitions set out in the GP Forward View (GPFV) Delivery Plan? In the context of increased demand and finite resources, patients and professionals need to think creatively about how and why services are delivered and used in order to sustain and transform high quality general practice. We have described what will be different from the perspectives of patients (in blue) and practices (in purple) when we deliver the full ambition described in the plan. This summary should be read in conjunction with the detail of the GPFV delivery plan itself which outlines how these ambitions and key objectives will be achieved. Ambition 3
Fully use and prioritise our collective estates and technology resources to improve the quality of primary medical care and New Models of Care experienced and delivered by patients and professionals. By 2020/21 patients will: Be aided to use a range of different digital skills and solutions to meet their needs Receive care from primary and community premises which support their wellbeing, relieves stress and aids recovery Be able to have more choice of locations from which to access care depending on their need By 2020/21 practices will: Be able to use effective and efficient technology and digital working which supports clinician to clinician and patient to clinician interfaces Be able to use premises in a more flexible way Have premises which are utilised more effectively and are fit for purpose Ambition 1 Ensure there is a motivated, engaged, integrated and healthy workforce with the right skills, behaviours and training, available in the right numbers. Ambition 2 Ensure all patients registered with a GP in Leeds: - understand how, when and are able to access routine and urgent primary medical care when needed; and - are empowered to manage their own conditions to live fulfilling lives in their community. By 2020/21 patients will: Be supported to see the most appropriate professional to meet their needs See a greater range of health and care professionals within the practice Take an active part in managing their health and wellbeing through collaborative care planning By 2020/21 patients will: Have access to routine and urgent appointments 7 days a week Be confident to know when and where to access care Be supported to access a greater range of services and wider support through other routes such as digitally and virtually By 2020/21, practices will: Have access to trained staff to support patients to navigate the health and care system more effectively Be part of a wider team of professionals including mental health workers and clinical pharmacists working across groups of practices Be confident in the ability to recruit, retain and train new members of the team Ambition 4 Free up more time within general practice to plan and deliver better care for patients and professionals by streamlining workload within practices and between By 2020, practices will different care providers. By 2020/21, patients will: Be confident in being able to manage minor self limiting illnesses themselves, obtaining advice from other health professionals such as
pharmacists or through other initiatives such as NHS111 Avoid the morning on the day rush for appointments through effective appointment capacity Have an improved overall experience of general practice By 2020/21 practices will: Have been supported to review workload and will see a reduction in bureaucracy and reporting Experience improved communication between providers, preventing the need for re-referrals and chasing up tasks etc. See better managed demand and will experience a better work/life balance By 2020/21 practices will: See a reduction in demand for care that could be more appropriately delivered by other providers such as community pharmacy Deliver a higher proportion of care through digitally enabled solutions Be working at-scale and collaboratively with other providers to deliver extended access to routine and urgent appointments 7 days a week Ambition 5 Redesign the way care is delivered, by progressing a whole system model which focusses on a place-based approach where everybody has a part to play, both citizens and services together. By 2020/21 patients will: Access a broader range of health and wellbeing services out of hospital in their community Be empowered to make decisions to stay well and improve their physical and mental health Be confident that the professionals caring for them have the right information to support them, reducing the need for repeat assessment By 2020/21 practices will: Have more time for GPs to provide expert medical advice to support patients with the most complex needs Working more collaboratively to share resources , increase resilience and provide patients with access to a wider range of options Part of a wider team of health and care professionals working together to meet the needs of the local population Engagement with patients, member practices and wider stakeholders on how we what will be different will be undertaken to ensure that priorities are appropriately reflected and the language is consistent with other plans in the city. Draft. Version 0.22| 7/12/16 4. Collaborative working between general practices in Leeds In Leeds, 105 individual general practices provide primary medical care services and wider primary care for the population of Leeds. These 105 general practices are diverse in size, shape and form. The list size of general practices in Leeds varies between 1,040 and 37,000 with a (median) average list size of 6,844. As individual businesses with an individual contract, there is significant variation in the way in which services are delivered to registered populations of patients. The population of Leeds is also extremely diverse and so the ability of general practice to respond and deliver care in relation to the specific needs of different population groups is a key strength of general practice. As demonstrated by the outcomes of the recent Care Quality Commission (CQC) visits , the vast majority of the 105 general practices in Leeds are providing good, and in some cases outstanding, care to patients registered with general practices in Leeds benchmarking above average in relation to the domains assessed by CQC. However, the range and quality of services, patient experience and sustainability of care delivered to patients across general practices in Leeds can vary significantly. The ambitions described in this GPFV delivery plan aim to reduce this variation through quality improvement support and through greater collaboration between general practices. Another key strength, unique to general practice, is to continuity of care provided to patients through the registered list. Going forward we recognise that that this unique strength of general practice must be retained within the context of greater collaboration and care redesign. General practices in Leeds are increasingly working together in collaboration to design and deliver services which respond to the needs of their populations. The drivers, structure and form of these collaborations vary between the formal federation across 30 GP practices across NHS Leeds South and East CCG, the provider network in NHS Leeds West CCG and Memorandum of Understanding (MOUs) between locality grouping of GPs in NHS Leeds North CCG. The commonality across these different structural arrangements is that they enable general practices to: work together to identify, plan and respond to a specific need e.g. providing extended hours through hub working in NHS Leeds West CCG work collaboratively and with other providers to design and deliver innovative, bottom-up models of care to the needs of a defined population, such as delivering multi-provider diabetes and mental health wrap-around services for patients living in the Chapeltown locality of NHS Leeds North CCG share core functions to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of back-office functions and care provided to improve the sustainability and resilience of general practice and improve care for patients, for example the work undertaken by the GP federation in NHS Leeds South and East CCG to support quality improvement with local GPs. Alongside commissioning general practices to deliver primary medical care at individual practice level, going forward the Leeds CCGs will increasingly: work with GPs and other providers to commission services at scale for populations of 30-80,000 patients commission services through hub and spoke models of delivery which are aligned to general practice consider the future sustainability of practices required to meet the need of patient populations when making decisions around the provision of general practices services across the city. Strong collaborative working is essential for the future sustainability of general practice as the key provider of care in its own right, as well as being the foundation to develop New Models of Care (NMoC). The role of general practice in supporting and enabling emerging models of accountable care, and a wider move towards a population health management approach across the city, is described in greater detail in Section 5 Care Redesign.

Ambition 1: Supporting and growing the workforce Ensure there is a motivated, engaged, integrated and healthy workforce with the right skills, behaviours and training, available in the right number Introduction and overview Leeds will be a vibrant and attractive place to work, offering flexibility and innovative employment opportunities within an integrated workforce which supports a transformed primary care service. Our members are passionate about general practice and its place within the health care system and wish to promote it with health care professionals, emphasising the importance of the role of general practitioner (GP) in the community. Leeds has a lot to offer our future GPs and we plan to expedite and target the recruitment of additional GPs, focussing on areas where recruitment is currently proving a challenge. It is well documented that there is a need to look at alternative workforce models to support the sustainability of general practice given the recruitment and retention challenge that is facing us. We have several sites across Leeds testing new workforce models and we are working with our Local Medical Committee (LMC) colleagues to highlight positive case studies and identify practices who are keen to develop further. We are committed to working together as a city on workforce to ensure a collective review and equity across the whole Leeds system so that workforce models reflect population need and support a reduction in health inequalities. A primary care workforce sub-group has already been established as part of the Leeds Plan programme structure to ensure an appropriate focus on primary care workforce which is not isolated from the wider health and social care workforce. The group will be accountable for delivering the immediate milestones of: 1) establishing an accurate baseline of general practice workforce including gaps : 2) supporting an increase in the number of (additional) clinical pharmacists in practice (30% = 10) through engaging in the clinical pharmacist scheme: 3) implementing new care navigator / medical assistant roles in general practice following 1 st cohort of training. At a recent engagement event 71% of practice representatives (lead clinicians and managers) surveyed said that they were considering alternative workforce models, with 43% looking at working across a groups of general practices demonstrating the current transformational appetite within general practice. Leeds has made significant progress with regard to workforce models and currently has learning to share in the following areas: NHS England clinical pharmacist pilot Practice employed pharmacists Direct employment of mental health workers Physio First and other models Clinical care co-ordinators Practice nursing preceptorship HCA apprenticeships Physician associate placements (Y1) Role emerging placements for occupational therapists (REPOT) Learning disability nurses providing routine health checks in GP Supporting and growing the Hub and cross-site working in the evenings and at weekends primary care workforce underpins Inclusion health inc paediatric asthma programme and Gypsy and Traveller health the delivery of the Leeds Plan and Introduction of the Collaborative Care and Support Planning (previously known as Year of Care) GP team approach to managing long term conditions forms part of the wider Care home nurses and enhanced care home teams of AHPs, incorporating the Calderdale Framework to Leeds workforce strategy. risk assess role merging and role blending) Page 8 Draft.

Version 0.22| 7/12/16 Ambition 1: Supporting and growing the workforce City wide position One of the key priorities for Leeds as a system is establishing an accurate baseline of the primary care workforce so that we can identify gaps and priorities at individual practice level and across localities. The data we currently hold only represents 75% of general practices in the city. In order to offer further help and support we need a complete picture of the current challenge, gaps and risks facing practices. As CCGs we have worked closely with Health Education England (HEE) and LMC colleagues to raise awareness on the importance of submitting workforce data so that it enables proactive planning in terms of recruitment and identifying hot spots as well as commissioning future training places. The information provided from practices (figure 3 ) identifies a number of key risks several practices are already highlighting problems recruiting new GPs with a number also highlighting multiple leavers over the next three years leading to concerns
regarding sustainability. One of the key actions is to manage these risks and use available resources and programmes, such as the general practice resilience programme, to look at alternative recruitment options or innovative solutions. By 2020/21 patients will: Be supported to see the most appropriate professional to meet their needs See a greater range of health and care professionals within the practice Take an active part in managing their health and wellbeing through collaborative care planning The average list size per GP FTE for Leeds is currently at 2004. Whilst we recognise this is a traditional way of measuring demand, looking at this at a practice level highlights variation in practices, particularly where recruitment difficulties are already starting to have an impact. Current workforce information (figure 3 ) shows that we have a current workforce gap of 50 GPs which represents a 12% gap in overall GP numbers. This would represent what is needed to fulfil some of the unmet needs but fails to address what is required for general practice to perform at its highest level. We would need to exceed this amount to truly bring general practice into the 21st century. The Leeds fair share of the 5,000 additional doctors (committed to in the GPFV) equates to 74 doctors, however we know the population is expected to rise over the next five years due to the number of new housing developments. Leeds also continues to thrive as a city and other external factors such as Leeds University being awarded University of the Year may further attract additional students to Leeds. We need to attract new doctors to general practice by showcasing the good work undertaken in primary care by encouraging additional practices to become training practices. By 2020/21, practices will: Have access to trained staff to support patients to navigate the health and care system more effectively Be part of a wider team of professionals including mental health workers and clinical pharmacists working across groups of practices Be confident in the ability to recruit, retain and train new members of the team The Leeds fair share of the additional 1,000 physician associates committed in the GPFV is 15. We need to continue to model workforce numbers based on the availability of other staffing groups and use tools such as the HEEYH WRaPT tool (a planning tool to enable us to help model workforce for population groups). Delivering the GP Forward View in Leeds Page 10 Draft. Version 0.22| 7/12/16 Ambition 1: Supporting and growing the workforce City wide position continued As a city we already have some experience of clinical pharmacists in practice. Initial feedback from practices is that this is already having a positive effect on workload. We are committed to taking the opportunity of being an early adopter site for the clinical pharmacist scheme where we estimate having an additional 25 pharmacists across the city. There is a growing appetite amongst primary care to embrace new roles and we have some positive examples across the city of mental health workers working in an integrated way with general practice to reflect the population needs. A number of practices have already expressed an interest in being early implementers for this role as we prioritise its expansion across Leeds, working collaboratively with our mental health commissioning colleagues to ensure alignment with the overall strategy. We have identified that we have a moderate risk regarding GPs aged 55 and over who may be looking to retire in the next few years and to some degree a greater risk of practice nurses and practice management (which includes our administrative and clerical colleagues). A number of initiatives are in development to help support greater resilience in our workforce, including: Career seminars for those close to retirement, with a view to looking at options for supporting colleagues to stay in practice Developing alternative workforce models including employing physician associates and pharmacists Greater collaboration with other independent contractors such as community pharmacy with the Pharmacy First scheme which helps support patients to self-manage and a possible alternative to general practice Application to HEE on behalf of Leeds re: nursing associate role test site lead partner LTHT (successful application to start in Dec 2016 - trainee nurse associates to be placed in primary care as part of the programme which includes placements across secondary care, community, mental and care homes Implementing the general practice nurse scheme, delivered in partnership with HEE, across 16 practices in Leeds. A key element of supporting and growing the workforce is adopting an integrated approach to staff training and developing clinical and non-clinical groups. Over the next few months we will work as a city, and with partners, to understand key issues and gaps relating to training provision particularly how we use our collective resources to maximise training opportunities across organisational boundaries. This is particularly relevant in areas of training where there has been a reduction in nationally funded training places, such as practice nurse training. Going forward, a key enabler is the cross-organisational development of a business case to establish a Leeds Health and Care Academy which would provide a system wide resource for health and social care staff.

Version 0.22| 7/12/16 Ambition 2: Improving access to general practice Ensure all patients registered with a GP in Leeds understand how, and are able to, access routine and urgent primary medical care services when needed, are empowered to manage their own conditions and live fulfilling lives in their community Introduction and context We know, from what patients have told us, that the majority of patients in Leeds find getting an appointment with a general practice in Leeds fairly or very easy. Headlines from the GP Patient Survey in July 2016 demonstrate that 72% of patients find it very easy or fairly easy to access the GP practice via telephone and 74% of patients have a very good or fairly good experience of making an appointment. We want to build on these results to provide even better access to routine and urgent primary care from general practice and wider primary care services alongside a greater focus on supporting and empowering patients to better manage their own conditions. While figures suggest that the majority of patients registered with a general practice in Leeds are able to easily access their general practice, we know that for other patients, this is not the case. Our patients have told us that improving access to general practice services during routine hours and for some population groups (such as those with complex needs), and continuity of seeing the same health professional, are key priorities. We know from GPs that the demand for routine in-hours appointments is increasing and placing significant pressures on general practice. At the same time, the GP Patient Survey highlights that the majority of patients surveyed want additional extended hours appointments;71% of patients would like additional appointments after 6.30pm and 74% of patients would like additional appointments on Saturdays. The challenge and opportunity for the Leeds CGGs is how we balance these local priorities alongside a national directive and increasing patient expectations to establish seven day access to primary care by 2020/21. In 2014, NHS Leeds West CCG was successfully appointed as a GP Access Fund site to test a new model of extended seven day access to GP for registered patients. This opportunity has enabled improved access to general practice for the 350,000 patients registered with a Leeds West CCG GP, and has also generated key learning and insight to be applied across the city as the CCGs work together to improve access to routine and urgent primary medical care services for the whole population of Leeds. The CCGs have three, interrelated opportunities as we work together to improve access to routine and urgent primary medical care services for the whole population of Leeds: 1) Providing greater support to empower patients to better manage their own conditions 2) The Leeds urgent care system redesign, currently being developed as part of the Leeds Urgent Care Strategy 3) The huge opportunity to increase the role of technology in providing Developing digital capacity and and infrastructure underpins the supporting digital access to GP for patients delivery of the Leeds Plan and forms part of the wider Leeds
workforce strategy. Urgent care forms one of the four redesign programmes in the Leeds Plan. Draft. Version 0.22| 7/12/16 Page 13 Ambition 2: Improving access to general practice City wide approach Supporting and empowering patients to manage their own conditions and live fulfilling lives in their community We recognise that supporting and empowering patients to better manage their health, wellbeing and conditions is central to improved access to general practice as well as the wider transformation of health and care services. To enable this we are working as a city on the Leeds Conversation a consistent approach across all health and care providers to frame all interactions between patients and services in the context of the contribution, assets and responsibilities of the patient (see Figure 8). In general practice, this is being supported through health coaching and self-management programmes such as Collaborative Care and Support Planning (previously known as Year of Care) approaches, and self-care campaigns. We want patients to feel confident to directly identify and access a range of services, including community pharmacy and services provided through the third sector, to meet their care and support needs. We have developed information points such as Mindwell and Mindmate to enable patients to directly access self-help and services to support their mental health and wellbeing and commissioned social prescribing to further enable and empower patients to directly access the support and services they need. This programme of behaviour change will be further strengthened by rolling out the Leeds Medicine Communication Charter, a unique approach coproduced with patients, to support patients to get the most of their medicines through different conversations with health professionals resulting in better clinical outcomes and experience, improved patient empowerment and reduced demand for services. Supporting patients to be more activated in the management of their own health, wellbeing and care is a key component of population health management described further in Section 5 Ambition 5. Leeds Urgent Care Strategy and The Leeds Plan Our approach to improving access to routine and urgent primary medical care forms a key component part of Leeds Urgent Care Strategy, (which in itself forms one of the four work programmes in the Leeds Plan). The Leeds Urgent Care Strategy provides an opportunity for commissioners and providers to work together to take a whole-system approach to redesigning urgent care services, including general practice to address the key challenges across the Leeds system. These include: 1) Variation in access for patients registered with different general practices within different CCGs; 2) Given the finite capacity of the GP workforce across Leeds - already under significant pressure to meet levels of demand for routine appointments - the need to develop alternative workforce models to deliver urgent and routine primary care; 3) The need to simplify what is currently a very complex urgent care system ; 4) High levels of A&E use in early evening by families with young children and from patients living within deprived Leeds 5) High rates of elderly admissions. In redesigning services to address these challenges, we will better understand and respond to the unmet needs of specific population groups in Leeds. These include 1) new migrant populations with low understanding of local services; 2) young families with social and emotional support needs 3) additional language needs within some migrant groups which require more face to face translation and care navigation 4) Growing elderly and multiple LTC population with limited assessment / near patient testing in the community 5) Limited digital literacy across a number of population groups with limited uptake of virtual access in working adult population. Increase the role of technology in providing and supporting digital access to GP for patients Technology, such as patient online services, provides a huge opportunity to support self care, provide direct digital access to GP and free up capacity in general practice for face-face care for groups who need this most. The opportunity for improvement is demonstrated in the most recent GP Survey results below: 35% of patients have awareness of online appointment booking 30% of patients have awareness of online repeat prescription ordering 6% of patients have awareness of online access to medical records 49% have no awareness of online services A focus on increasing technology, digital access and digital literacy will be a key focus for the CCGs in Leeds over the next five years (see Section 5 Ambition 3 for wider context re technology development By 2020/21 patients will: Have access to routine and urgent appointments 7 days a week. Be confident to know when and where to access care Be supported to access a greater range of services and wider support through other. routes ,such as digital and virtual By 2020/21 practices will: See a reduction in demand for care that could be more appropriately delivered by other providers such as community pharmacy.

Page 15 Draft. Version 0.22| 7/12/16 Ambition 3: Transforming estates and technology Develop and fully use our collective estate and technology resources to improve the quality of care delivered and the experiences of patients and professionals Introduction and context In June 2015, CCGs were asked to lead the development of local estates strategies supported by advisors from NHS Property Services. A Framework for Commissioners was produced which outlined the process required and the timescales for the work to be undertaken. This process included the formation of Strategic Estates Forums (SEF). Within Leeds this is the Strategic Estates Group which includes representation from key commissioner and provider organisations across the city. Estates strategies were to be completed initially by December 2015. In September 2015, local health and care systems were asked to produce Local Digital Roadmaps (LDRs) by 30 June 2016, setting out how they will achieve the ambition of paper-free at the point of care by 2020. In October 2015, CCGs were invited to put forward proposals to the Estates and Technology Transformation Fund (ETTF) for future estates and
technology investment, in line with their local estates and digital plans. 26 proposals were received, reviewed, prioritised and submitted as part of the national Stage One process by 30 June 2016. A draft Primary Care Estates Strategy for Leeds has recently been completed. This strategy highlights the current location and condition of general practice premises across Leeds as well as the outcomes of a number of building surveys undertaken within practices. There is enormous variation across Leeds in the quality of premises from which general practices operate and we are aware that this has a direct relationship on the quality and range of care received by patients and on the working lives of professionals. The result of surveys undertaken as part of the primary dare estates strategy along with local practice knowledge and intelligence, regarding future housing and local infrastructure developments, provides the rationale within the estates strategy for recommendations relating to the future investment and development of general practice estate. It underpins a strategic aim to develop a built environment fit for the future in delivering our ambition of sustainable and transformed primary care as a key aspect of whole system change. Developing improved estates, digital capacity and infrastructure underpins the delivery of the Leeds Plan and forms part of the wider Leeds workforce strategy. Page 16 Draft. Version 0.22| 7/12/16 Ambition 3: Transforming estates and technology Develop and fully use our collective estate and technology resources to improve the quality of care delivered and the experiences of patients and professionals The vision for the primary care estate is that it should move towards even more purpose-built, flexible, multi use, premises which are adaptable to changes in services, capacity or demand. Premises should continue to support a culture of teaching and learning both for healthcare professionals and patients. Estate is one of the biggest financial risks both from an investment, funding and ongoing maintenance perspective. Consolidating estates and sweating the assets creates opportunities through developing integrated, multi-occupancy premises which include a range of providers and services, but with sufficient room for future growth/expansion. Premises development should be planned on a hub and spoke model to allow for additional services to be delivered across a whole neighbourhood. Through the Leeds primary care estates strategy, proactive estate and infrastructure plans will be drawn up so that premises should be well managed and link whole health and social care systems. This approach will include greater partnership working with strategic landlords and others to ensure the total estate is considered. Consistent policies will be developed in relation to rent reviews, including premises reimbursements, as well as agreeing strategic decisions relating to ownership, leases and agreeing any future disposal options for estate. Infrastructure and technology should support patients to be involved in managing their own health and wellbeing and decisions about their care through information, advice and engagement. We know that new technologies provide huge opportunities to enable patients to access services, advice and their own records digitally but that different levels of digital literacy and appetite exist across different population groups. Promoting and supporting digital access across receptive population groups will free up face to face access for patients who most need this. We also recognise the importance and value of digital technologies in enabling greater integration and more flexible delivery of care across different service providers. This includes greater access to shared digital records, the development of near patient testing, the use of mobile devices as well as telephone and digital based solutions that enable improve real time communication between professional to deliver better and more efficient care for patients. The role of technology in delivering more efficient and effective care between patients and professionals is a key component of our wider approach to population health management Investment in estate and technology is needed, not just to improve existing facilities and the quality of primary medical care received by patients, but to increase the sustainability and transformation of general practice. The investment and development of flexible primary care estates and technology solutions underpin the delivery of the GP Forward View, New Models of Care and the aspiration of the city to establish a population health management approach. By 2020/21 practices will: Be able to use effective and efficient technology and digital working which supports clinician to clinician and patient to clinician interfaces. Be able to use premises in a more flexible way Have premises which are used more effectively and are fit for purpose By 2020 /21patients will: Be aided to use a range of different digital skills and solutions to meet their needs Receive care from primary and community premises which support their wellbeing, relieve stress and aids recovery Be able to have more choice of locations from which to access care depending on their need Page 17 Draft.

Version 0.22 | 7/12/16 Ambition 4: Better workload management Reduce practice burdens and help release time with the management of demand, diversion of unnecessary work and an overall reduction in bureaucracy Introduction and context The three Leeds CCGs have successfully supported member practices in managing their workload through significant historic investment in quality improvement programmes such as the General Practice Improvement Programme (GPIP), Productive General Practice, in addition to establishing and supporting the bespoke Leeds Institute for Quality Improvement. A key component of quality improvement is the ability to accurately assess capacity and demand and support practices to make small changes to manage appointment systems. As a national GP Access Fund site, NHS Leeds West CCG is an early implementer of a systematic approach to capacity and demand. The understanding and learning from this will be shared across the city as we launch the approach in 2017, providing dedicated support to practices. The plan will be to initially work with those practices that have currently identified specific capacity issues. We will also look at a structured approach to reducing missed appointments, focused on those practices that are indicating this is a particular issue for them and their patient population.
Initiatives planned to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the interface between within primary care and general practice will support this strand of the Leeds Plan. A standardised quality dashboard has been produced across the city which will further support how we transparently work with practices to identify and share good examples of quality improvement as well as where additional support may be required in relation to specific citywide quality themes or at specific practice level. The One Voice work has emphasised the importance of primary care development support and commitment to use our collective resource to support practices on the basis of need as required. Leeds has made significant progress in implementing a number of the national expectations relating to the NHS Standard Contract. A full review of the recommendations arising from the GPC Urgent Prescription for General Practice has been undertaken with our LMC colleagues which aims to reduce the impact on general practice. A system is established, through Leeds Provider Query to allow practices to flag where there are compliance issues and these will continue to be monitored and fed back to our local providers to continue to support the appropriate workload management in general practice. Delivering the GP Forward View in Leeds Page 22 Draft. Version 0.22 | 7/12/16 Ambition 4: Better workload management Reduce practice burdens and help release time with the management of demand, diversion of unnecessary work and an overall reduction in bureaucracy We are working with NHS England colleagues in identifying those practices that may benefit from the GP resilience programme. 13 practices (and one locality) have been identified by CCGs and practices to date, in addition to at least 11 practices (or localities) receiving vulnerable practices funding. This demonstrates some of the challenges being faced by our practices and our focus will be on sustaining services for the population. Recognising the importance of the general practice registered list in providing continuity of care, we also know that by supporting increasing collaboration between practices, we will continue to identify schemes which may allow the resources to be managed at scale across a wider footprint. The CCGs and the LMC have agreed to work together to continue to identify areas of good practice and share case studies to ensure continuous improvement and spread of initiatives across the city, particularly encouraging practices to share initiatives that have impacted upon their workload. All three CCGs have successful social prescribing models in place which is already starting to show an impact on supporting GP workload. A high level review against the 10 high impact changes has been undertaken (see figure 4) and a commitment has been made to share good practice, learning and ideas for development, particularly regarding productive work flows, in a coordinated way across the city. An identified lead for each high impact area has been identified who will help to monitor and push for progress through the citywide collaborative. Effective workload management also sits alongside the workforce chapter in identifying opportunities for other health and care professionals to work as part of an integrated team to help support a more appropriate workload depending on the needs of the population and the skills available within the practice team. A positive example of this is the integration of mental health workers in primary care reflecting the key role of general practice is holistically supporting the mental and physical health and wellbeing needs of patients. By 2020/21, patients will: Be confident in being able to manage minor self limiting illnesses themselves, obtaining advice from other health professionals such as pharmacists or through other initiatives such as NHS111 Avoid the morning on the day rush for appointments through effective appointment capacity Have an improved overall experience of general practice By 2020/21 practices will: Have been supported to review workload and will see a reduction in bureaucracy and reporting Experience improved communication between providers, preventing the need for re-referrals and chasing up tasks etc. See better managed demand and will experience a better work/life balance A GP wellbeing action plan for 2016-18 has been developed across the city which aims to focus on a number of initiatives to support GP resilience including coaching and mindfulness . Feedback from GPs who have participated in the initial Mindfulness course has been extremely positive. Delivering the GP Forward View in Leeds Page 23 Draft.

Version 0.22 07/12/16 Ambition 5: Redesign care delivery Progress to a whole system model which focusses on a place-based approach where everybody has a part to play, both citizens and services together Introduction and background The ambition to redesign the way primary care is delivered is at the heart of ensuring the sustainability and transformation of both general practice and the wider health and care system. We know that general practices understanding of local population needs alongside the continuity of care enabled through the registered list are strengths that we will value and retain going forward. Building from the general practice registered list provides a firm foundation for care to be delivered differently in a more collaborative and integrated way - bringing together different providers of health and social care across the city. This chapter outlines the central role of general practice and general practitioners in driving forward change that will support and enable the wider system transformation described within the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Sustainability and Transformation Plan (WYSTP) and the underpinning Leeds Plan. Leeds is recognised nationally as being ahead of the curve in relation to current levels of integration between service providers within the city. Over the last two years the Leeds CCGs have guided and supported general practices to develop new ways of working in line with the New Models of Care (NMoC) approach described in the Five Year Forward View. Across Leeds, general practices are working with community, acute and third sector providers to develop and deliver NMoC which respond to the needs of priority populations within a given locality. Joint leadership teams are being developed and supported to enable provider joint working. The aim of this approach is to support the consideration of the use of collective resources and expertise, including the social assets of patients and communities, to deliver increasingly better outcomes for local populations. The benefits of working in a more collaborative way includes the better use of finite system resources such as workforce and estates. We believe this will lead to improved outcomes and increased satisfaction for patients and in improvements to the working lives of front line staff through better working relationships. Supported through facilitation and resource from CCGs, the following examples illustrate how general practices are working collaboratively and with other providers to develop NMoC.
Armley Test Bed A Community Wellbeing Leadership Team has been established in the Armley locality. Membership is local leaders drawn from general practice,(representing five practices in the area) LCH, LYPFT, adult social care, the Armley One Stop Centre and the local voluntary sector. The key aims are to improve relationships, develop local leadership and promote integration. The overall aim of the group is to improve the aspirations of people in Armley. The group have identified priorities around mental health, self care and delivery of care using coaching approaches. Self-led projects are underway including setting up a self-care whole system MDT to support the Adult Social Care Strengths Based Social Care innovation site in partnership with New Wortley Community Centre. The group also want to roll out coaching training to all front line clinical and non clinical staff so that all people in the area will receive a consistent response when accessing all services. Beeston & Crossgates Test Bed Chapeltown Test Bed In the Beeston and Cross Gates localities of LSECCG a new model of care project is developing that aims to provide proactive, integrated, patient centred care for people with multiple LTCs including CVD or COPD. A new multidisciplinary team in in place in both localities comprising of GP, geriatrician, matron, therapist and health advisors, with provision for mental health and pharmacist input once the level of need has been identified. The model will focus on developing wellbeing plans in partnership with participants along with resilience plans that support better self-management of conditions, coordinate resources more effectively and use community assets to better effect. The team are working with small groups(approx. 600/locality) from the identified cohort to develop the model in line with participant needs, ensuring citizen feedback is integral to the service design and development. In the Chapeltown locality of LNCCG, practices have established a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to strengthen their ability to work together, to develop and deliver services and approaches for one of the most deprived populations in Leeds. Working alongside community providers, GPs in the locality have established a new local diabetes service. With a jointly appointed nurse specialist, the service is seeing more complex patients in the practices and upskilling the practice workforce. With mental health and third sector providers and alongside the social prescribing service Connect-well the locality has also established a mental health wraparound service for local patients as an early implementer of the citywide MH Framework for Leeds. In addition, the locality has established HATCH (Health and Social Care Talent In Chapeltown and Harehills), which aims to strengthen and make more resilient the workforce in Chapeltown and make the locality a national go-to destination for primary care workforce . Working with providers, the CCGs in Leeds have described an ambition to move to a population health management (PHM) approach to commissioning for improved outcomes for the population of Leeds. The establishment and learning from the NMoC described are one of a number of key steps towards a PHM approach which include the move towards more strategic commissioning, providers working together in a more accountable care way, and the alignment of contracts and incentives to support this way of working. Another step is to understand and explore the appetite and benefits of testing Multi Specialty Care Provider (MCP) contract within the city. Figure 5 outlines and describes a roadmap to PHM and some of the key steps on this journey. Delivering the GP Forward View in Leeds Page 26 Draft.

Version 0.22 | 7/12/16 Ambition 5:Redesign care delivery The role of general practice in supporting delivery of the Leeds Plan and Sustainability and Transformation Plan The Leeds Plan (Figure 6) describes the system changes required to achieve a sustainable and transformed health and care system and supports the delivery of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP). The Leeds Plan describes four work programmes which will achieve the three overarching tests of the plan; 1) People will be supported to stay in their own homes, family or community 2) People requiring hospital and residential nursing care will spend the minimum time possible there 3) The health and social care system in Leeds will be financially sustainable. GP redesign is at the heart of supporting and enabling this change. There are three areas of focus within the care redesign of general practice that contribute towards the wider system change to support delivery of the STP and the Leeds Plan. 1. 2. Redesign general practice to be sustainable - As outlined in the preceding sections of this GPFV delivery plan, this
includes the redesign of workforce, access, workload and estates and technology to increase the sustainability and transformation of general practice as the key provider of primary care for the population of Leeds . The 10 high impact actions to release GP capacity is the key starting block for sustainability and GPs being able to work at the top of their license within integrated services. Redesign the delivery of general practice services through collaborative working at-scale By working collaboratively to share some workforce, back-office, estates and service delivery models, general practice will be more efficient, sustainable and resilient. Working together at-scale across population groups of approximately 30-80,000 will shape the formation of hub and spoke working to deliver a range of GP services and enable wider alignment to support provider integration. By 2020/21 patients will: Access a broader range of health and wellbeing services out of hospital in their community Be empowered to make decisions to stay well and improve their physical and mental health Be confident that the professionals caring for them have the right information to support them, reducing the need for repeat assessment By 2020 /21 practices will: Have more time for GPs to provide expert medical advice to support patients with the most complex needs. 3. Redesign and integrate the wider health and care system, of which the general practice registered list is the Working more collaboratively to cornerstone - This is the focus of the Leeds Plan, which consolidates four work programmes . Aligning this plan to share resources , increase resilience other strategies around urgent care, pharmacy, mental health, children and families and carers is key. and provide patients with access to a wider range of options. Delivering redesign across the three levels outlined above is predicated on fully accessing the funding and resources committed in the GPFV as well as realigning Part of a wider team of health and existing resources, including finance and workforce, between existing provider boundaries. care professionals working together to meet the needs of the local population Figure 6 The Leeds Plan -Page DRAFT 28 Ensuring flow across whole system for all ages Rebalancing the conversation working with staff, service users and the public Test1: People are supported to stay in their own home, families or community Test2: People requiring hospital and residential nursing care will spend the minimum time possible there Self-Management, Proactive & Planned Care Prevention Optimising the use of Secondary Care Resources & Facilities Test3: The Health & Social care system in Leeds will be financially sustainable Urgent Care / Rapid Response in times of Crisis Links to West Yorkshire Priorities (& beyond): Urgent & Emergency Care; Specialised Commissioning; Mental Health; Prevention at Scale; Stroke; Cancer; Primary & Community Care; Acute Sustainability; Standardisation & Variation 1.

Version 0.22 | 7/12/16 Ambition 5: Redesign care delivery The layers of redesign 1. Redesign general practice to be sustainable The initial focus of redesign is to support GP sustainability. Building on the delivery of the previous four sections of this plan, general practice will be supported to work through and adopt the changes in the 10 high impact actions which will release capacity within general practice. The focus of the 10 high impact areas is likely to vary across the city depending upon local population and practice needs. For example, focussing on the high impact action on social prescribing may be a higher priority in areas of deprivation where there is a high need to support the wider social needs. The capacity created will support greater redesign and integration of the wider health and care system, notably this will free GPs time to work more at the top of their licence and support the management of complex patients who have multiple needs. This would see GPs having more dedicated capacity to support system flow, for example, supporting the discharge process by actively supporting patients out of secondary care and aligning the management of care home and housebound patients. This capacity will also support better in hours access to care. Figure 7 below demonstrates the future focus of GP capacity within the integrated health and care system and management of patients with complex and multiple needs. 2. Redesign the delivery of general practice services through collaborative working at-scale The second area of focus is to support GP collaboration, through this we can deliver a foot print for hub working on which the next layer of redesign can be based. The assumption here is that collaborative and hub working is used to support delivery of services and functions where this makes sense and that this builds on, as opposed to replaces, the registered list and care that is more appropriately delivered at individual practice level. We know there are existing high levels of public satisfaction with general practice, however, due to the workload pressure in general practice, some patients have reported difficulty accessing services. As described at Ambition 2, the GPFV has committed extra national money to extend access to core primary care medical services to be delivered through collaborative working in hubs. This will encourage and support general practices to work at scale. Working at scale supports the STP and Leeds Plan place based approach to care and the ability to integrate general practice and community services through hub working. It is envisaged that hubs in Leeds will cover localities consisting of population footprints of approximately 30-80,000. There will be two phases to developing hub working. The first will be to support general practice collaboration to work more collectively to deliver extended access, the second phase will be to align more community health, mental health and third sector services around hub working. We envisage future hubs will offer a skilled mixed team with some specialist services to meet local populations needs. As an example, we will explore how hub working could enable delivery of specialist paediatric care via hot clinics to meet existing needs for same day early evening access to care for unwell children. Figure 7 Future focus of GP capacity within integrated health and care system Draft. Version 0.22 | 7/12/16 Page 30 Ambition 5: Redesign care delivery The layers of redesign 3. Redesign and integrate the wider health and care system, of which the GP list is the cornerstone The third focus of redesign is to align and integrate primary care, including general practice, with pharmacy, community health, mental health, childrens and maternity services and third sector providers around geographical neighbourhoods, localities or hubs. Working together in this way helps to build relationships as providers come together to consider and plan the delivery of their services in response to local needs. This system redesign and renewed focus will support the achievement of the four key Leeds Plan work programmes as well as the Leeds Conversation each of which are described in further detail below. Prevention work programme Integrating health and social care including third sector providers will bring a renewed focus on promoting health and wellbeing and preventing ill-health across the city. General practices in Leeds are already commissioned by CCGs and Leeds City Council to deliver activities aimed at promoting health and wellbeing and preventing people from becoming ill e.g. delivery of NHS Health Checks, and commissioning screening champions within the most deprived practices in the city. The Leeds Plan prevention programme consolidates and builds on the work already being undertaken and places specific emphasis on targeting resources to support the citys most deprived populations addressing the inequalities gap and improving the health of the poorest fastest. A much stronger focus on prevention and the use of new technology to support this is a key component of a future population health management approach. Proactive care and self-management work programme For some time, general practice in Leeds, has been changing the way support is offered to patients to self-manage. A significant programme is already under way to roll out the collaborative care and support planning (previously know as Year of care). This approach enables patients to set their own goals, and skills staff to provide health coaching and will be adopted and used as a fundamental model of interaction with patients throughout the integrated teams . A self-management approach to care through the use of decision support, asset based approaches and common signposting will be fundamental in care redesign. Care redesign for general practice will also involve ensuring patients are informed and clear about their medications (through the launch of a Leeds Medicines Charter), receptionists are skilled and trained to signpost and ensure patients are seeing the right professional first time and patients expectations about this are managed well. Proactive ,rather than reactive, care will be delivered through more integrated care models, with proactive care and case management targeted at patients with more complex needs e.g. those living in care homes or with multiple long term conditions. Care delivered in a range of settings will be enabled by a greater use of technology and the increasing participation of patients as they take more control of their own health. These are both key features of a future population health management approach. Optimising the use of secondary care resources and facilities work programme GPs and secondary care consultants will be supported to maximise their clinical capacity in order to work more jointly to support patient care in the community. GPs will be freed to work at the top of their license and support the management of more clinically complex patients. The programme will explore ways of working that ensures patients are only in hospital for as long as clinically needed with GPs playing a role in proactively support their care back into primary care. The programme also aims to increase the capacity for diagnostic and rapid assessment of patients across primary and secondary care. Urgent Care /Rapid Response in times of crisis work programme It is well recognised that the majority of urgent care is delivered in general practice. The programme will explore how the primary care contribution has maximum
impact across the urgent care system by reshaping the crisis response including extending access to general practice across the city. Changing the way that same day urgent care need is responded to across the system will be a key part of the required transformation for future sustainability. See Ambition 2 for further information. Page 31 Draft. Version 0.22 | 7/12/16 Ambition 5: Redesign care delivery Enabler to redesign the Leeds Conversation The Leeds Conversation an enabler to system sustainability The Leeds Conversation will activate patients to be owners and partners in their own care and using this system is fundamental to supporting prevention and self-management. Leeds will create a one team approach to care delivery. This will support person centred care, empower staff to do the right things and remove duplication in care. Developing the Leeds Conversation between patients, the public and professionals and which all providers will support, will help us have transparent conversations WITH people about the services we are delivering and peoples role in their own care. This approach is crucial to support a culture change in both staff and the public and help with the shift towards scaled prevention, self-management and system sustainability and is central to the future approach of population health management. The Leeds Conversation features in a number of strategies and plans that set out the delivery of improved outcomes for populations and across care pathways. These include urgent care; mental health; children and maternity services; and Carers. Longer term system redesign A longer term, 10 year redesign of current approaches to commissioning and provision with a move towards population health management (Figure 5) will move the strategic commissioning of outcomes for defined populations within an agreed budget within an agreed timeframe for new ways of working to deliver accountable care, supported by aligned incentives and contractual levers across the system.

Page 37 Draft. Version 0.22| 7/12/16 6. Engagement Summary of engagement undertaken to date and plans for future engagement Introduction and context The initiatives, priorities and ambitions described within the GPFV delivery plan have been developed in response to engagement undertaken and feedback received by the three Leeds CCGs from a range of stakeholders. A summary of areas of engagement with key stakeholders undertaken to date and activities planned for the future is described in the summary table below. Going forward, a full engagement plan to support the design, delivery and evaluation of initiatives taken forward through the GPFV delivery plan will be developed and implemented. Stakeholder Group Engagement undertaken and insight gathered to inform content of GPFV Delivery Plan Principles of engagement in the future: Engagement should underpin activity at every stage, including feedback when changes have been implemented (You said, we did) Patients and public Engagement with patient reference groups or patient participation groups (PPGs) to inform scope and priorities within plan in particular in relation to emerging models of extended access 3 Things campaign has identified a range of local patient and public priorities relating to the workforce, access and technology sections of the GPFV delivery plan. National GP Patient Survey Update relating to the development of the citywide GPFV Delivery Plan presented to all 3 Leeds PCCC (public meetings) Feedback from Patient Assurance Groups. Ongoing and regular workshops with member practices around different elements of the plan as part of formal members meetings, operational working groups and locality meetings. Work with clinical leads for specific ambitions within the plan to scope and describe plans. CCG members We will undertake targeted specific engagement initiatives to inform the implementation of specific initiatives within the GPFV Delivery Plan. We know from feedback that a key focus of engagement will be on developing and communicating new workforce models such as the roles of pharmacists, physiotherapists and care navigators in general practices. Others areas include working with children and families to scope the development and test of paediatric hot clinics in the extended access initiative. Regular updates regarding the overall implementation of the plan through communications to patient reference/participation groups and the virtual patient reference groups and networks. Future conversations with public and patients regarding how best to positon the concept of the social contract as part of the wider Leeds conversation work.
Specific task and finish groups to progress specific elements of the GPFV delivery plan. Ongoing updates regarding implementation of GPFV delivery plan at members meetings. Page 38 Draft. Version 0.22| 7/12/16 6. Engagement Summary of engagement (continued) Stakeholder Group Engagement undertaken and insight gathered to inform content of GPFV Delivery Plan Principles of engagement in the future: Engagement should underpin activity at every stage, including feedback when changes have been implemented (You said, we did) Partners, including CCG workforce Work has been undertaken to engage with citywide commissioning teams i.e. teams leading on programmes and initiatives that interface with key elements of the plan, Examples include the citywide urgent care Team, primary care workforce group, citywide informatics team. LMC the three CCGs have worked closely with the LMC to understand the implications and commitments made within the GPFV and in relation to the content of the plan going forward. This has included specific LMC meetings and presenting the draft GPFV delivery plan at a recent LMC STP conference in Nov 16. Ongoing engagement with key internal partners in the implementation and more detailed scoping of initiatives within the plan. Commissioning primary medical care services across the three Leeds CCGs was a specific area of enquiry by the Adult Social Services, Public Health and NHS Scrutiny Committee in 2015/16. Key feedback was received in relation to adopting a citywide approach to commissioning and in particular in relation to extended access. This feedback has been reflected through the development of the citywide GPFV delivery plan. A draft copy of the GPFV has been shared with adult and children's social services, public health and local councillor health and wellbeing champions for review and feedback. Continue to engage with community committees on the GPFV delivery plan and its implementation Update and briefing provided to PCCCs outlining the proposed approach to the development of the GPFV delivery plan Final draft of the GPFV delivery plan to be presented to PCCC for approval in December 2016 in advance of final submission 23 December 2016. Regular updates and briefings relating to the implementation of the plan standing item at each meeting. Local authority and elected members CCG Primary Care Commissioning Committees Page 39 Draft. Version 0.22 07/12/16 7. Risks and mitigations
The three Leeds CCGs work together to identify, review and control collective risks relating to the sustainability and transformation of general practices . The level of differential risk and mitigating actions are reported to each of the three Primary Care Commissioning Committees. A summary of the current identified overall risk with specific reference to the implementation of the GP Forward View delivery plan is provided below. This should be read alongside each CCGs wider primary care risk register. Risk ID Risk Description Initial Risk Rating Controls and Measures in Place GPFV workforce There is a risk that general practices in Leeds are unable to recruit and retain workforce within general practice and within partner organisations . This is due to local and national workforce shortages resulting in the inability to provide high quality core primary care services and develop and deliver new models of care. Leeds CCGs working with members to support a wide variety of workforce development initiatives aimed at improving the recruitment, retention and resilience of general practice workforce. These include: recruitment programmes, development programmes, reviewing skills mix, new community pharmacy roles, trial of new physiotherapy roles and initiatives between primary care and community nursing. Workforce challenges and needs are being reviewed as part of the wider strategic workforce work and through the citywide primary care workforce working group. GPFV access There is a risk that CCGs are unable to deliver access to routine and urgent primary care appointments 7 days a week due to lack of available workforce and financial resource and resistance to change, resulting in reduced patient experience, potential pressure on the wider health and care system and non-delivery of a national directive. Leeds CCGs are working together to: support a variety of workforce initiatives (see mitigating actions above), engage with member practice to develop and test new models of care for extended primary care access, develop the model of extended access as part of the Leeds Urgent Care Strategy to maximise workforce and reduce service duplication fully utilise nationally available funds to commission new models of extended access monitor outcomes and impact of schemes on demand management and the wider Health and Social Care system GPFV estates and IT There is a risk that the Leeds CCGs are unable to support the transformation of primary care and new models of care due to the limitations of current primary care estate and technology; resulting in patients experiencing a poor quality of care and practices being unable to deliver improved models of care for patients. Practices encouraged to apply for capital funding via the National Estates and Technology Transformation Fund (ETTF) . Primary care estate is being reviewed as part of the wider citywide strategic estates work to understand the totality of available estate across all providers on a locality by locality basis. Draft Primary Care Estates Strategy completed for Leeds. GPFV workload There is a risk that the significant workload currently placed on general practice due to increasing demand and reducing capacity will result in the inability of general practices to deliver high quality care for patients, increased pressure of general practice workforce and the inability to transform and re-design general practice. CCG investment in quality improvement methodologies. Supported programme to roll out 10 high impact changes across general practice underway across Leeds positive feedback received already Work with LMC to improve workload at interface between general practice and other providers. Mitigated Risk Rating Delivering the GP Forward View in Leeds Page 40
7. Risks and mitigations (continued) Risk ID Risk Description GPFV redesign of care delivery There is a risk that engagement and relationships between the Leeds CCGs and member practices will deteriorate due to potentially unpopular decisions that may need to be made in relation to commissioning and contracting general practice services. This may affect the ability of the Leeds CCGs and member practices to work effectively to design and plan the delivery of the transformation of primary care and new models of care Proactive open and transparent discussions with members utilising existing infrastructure, ensuring clinical engagement is central in the development of all proposals relating to primary care GPFV investment There is a risk to the sustainability of general practice due to funding challenges resulting from the PMS equitable funding review; other contract changes; and non-recurrently funded schemes resulting in the inability of practices to deliver high quality services for their local populations . Systematic approach to the utilisation of PMS premium funding and wider investment in general practice. In year contract review meetings incorporating financial information and intelligence. Significant local CCG investment in general practice through the commissioning of local quality improvement schemes, subject to affordability. Application to maximise nationally available resources Strong relationships between the three CCG primary care and finance teams, supported through citywide Primary Care Collaborative group GPFV quality There is a risk that general practices are unable to deliver high quality services due to workforce, workload, estates and finance challenges; resulting patients experience poor quality and/or unsafe care. A citywide general practice quality dashboard has been produced to enable the Leeds CCGs to systematically identify and respond to quality issues and concerns at a CCG and individual practice level See mitigating actions described in relation to the workload, workforce, finance and estates mitigating actions above. GPFV CCG capacity There is a risk that the Leeds CCGs are unable to fully deliver responsibilities associated with primary care commissioning due to lack of capacity and capability within the primary care commissioning and locality teams resulting in the inability to implement the ambitions described in the GPFV delivery plan for Leeds. Through the One Voice work, CCG primary care commissioning and locality teams working together to maximise primary care commissioning capacity and capability across the city Citywide delivery of GPFV delivery plan and associated monitoring arrangements will identify risks to delivery and the implementation of mitigating actions. KEY Red = No effective plan to reduce risk - intervention required Amber = Plan in place to address risk - significant residual risk Green = Plan in place to mitigate risk to reasonable level Initial Risk Rating Controls and Measures in Place Mitigated Risk Rating Page 41 Draft. Version 0.22| 7/12/16 8. Governance The governance arrangements to assure each CCG and NHS England that the plan is being delivered fully and on time Figure 9 Governance of the GPFV Delivery Plan Health & Wellbeing
Board The GPFV delivery plan will be presented to the Primary Care Commissioning Committees of the three Leeds CCGs in December 2016 for sign off in advance of the plan being submitted on the 23 December 2016. Through the Leeds CCG Primary Care Commissioning Collaborative Group, the three Leeds CCGs will continue to work together to implement the GPFV delivery plan through a citywide approach. This will be further strengthened by wider One Commissioning Voice programme being undertaken to align the CCGs approach to commissioning across the city. Each CCG will formally report on the delivery of the GPFV delivery plan to its respective Primary Care Commissioning Committee. As part of the One Commissioning Voice programme, these three statutory committees will become increasingly aligned. The delivery of the component parts of the plan will be led by the three CCG primary care development teams, through the operational groups underpinning the PCCCs (see Figure 9 ) and working in partnership with appropriate stakeholders. Risks in relation to the sustainability of primary care in general and specifically in achieving the ambitions of the GPFV delivery plan, will be assessed, owned and reported through existing CCG governance structures. The GPFV delivery plan underpins the wider Leeds Plan. CCG primary care and New Models of Care leads will form part of the delivery teams for each of the four programmes for the Leeds Plan. Within this, there will be a requirement to report and provide assurance on the delivery of the GPFV delivery plan to the Leeds Sustainability and Transformation Plan delivery group. Each CCG will work closely with internal patient assurance groups to provide assurance to PCCCs and CCG Boards and Governing Body that the GPFV delivery plan is being implemented with full and appropriate levels of patient engagement and communication.
