Commissioning high quality care for people with long term conditions – an action research study – Nuffield Trust – March 2013

NHS Institute for Health Research funded work

“This project explores how services for people living with long-term conditions (e.g. asthma, diabetes and high blood pressure) can be planned, funded and put in place (commissioned) so that the quality of those services is as high as possible. The research takes as its starting point the fact that there is ample evidence about how, in theory, health services should be commissioned.  This study wishes to focus instead on the practical day-to-day experience of doctors, managers, user and carer representatives and others within primary care trusts who are responsible for working together to commission long-term condition services.”  … continues

Possibilities and Pitfalls for Clinical Leadership in Improving Service Quality, Innovation and Productivity – NHS Institute for Health Research – January 2013

Storey, J., and Holti, R. Possibilities and Pitfalls for Clinical Leadership in Improving Service Quality, Innovation and Productivity, Final report. NIHR Service Delivery and Organisation programme; 2013.

Extract:

Background
The idea that something called ‘clinical leadership’ is the favoured ‘answer’ to many of the huge challenges facing the NHS has been advanced with increasing intensity. Inter alia, Lord Darzi in the Next Stage Review emphasised the importance of clinical leadership; the Health and Social Care Act (2012) puts clinicians to the fore; and the Royal Colleges have accepted the need for Medical Leadership Competences to be defined and developed.

Despite such emphasis and expectation, the reality of clinical leadership attempts to redesign services across the extant boundaries of the NHS and which reveal how the many barriers can be overcome, has not so far been studied.

Aims
The overall research question was:
What can be learned from the experience of enacting the Darzi model of clinical leadership in practice? What are the main
enabling and constraining conditions for its effective realization and performance?
Subsidiary research questions that feed-in to this main research question were:”

Emergency Planning in Health Care: Scoping study of the international literature, local information resources and key stakeholders – NHS Institute for Health Research – November 2012

Final report 
Executive Summary
Appendix 1

Extract

“There are many different ways of preparing and responding to emergencies around the world and a lot has also been written about it. However, we do not how reliable this information is and it is not clear which emergency planning interventions work. Furthermore, much of the work has been done outside the UK, so again it is not certain whether they will apply in our UK context. At least 11 major incidents happen each year in the UK and a significant amount of money is spent planning and preparing for them. There is therefore a real need to understand how we can best plan and prepare services to cope with major incidents and emergencies.”
