Planned Care is the planning, development and commissioning of non-urgent health services which meet the assessed needs of our communities, offer choice and convenient access as well as achieving excellent health outcomes.
Our aim is to improve patient experience and outcomes through the delivery of high quality, responsive and proactive care. To provide seamless and timely care with appropriate levels of access, supported by strong clinical ownership.
We will achieve this by working together. Professionals from primary, community and secondary care will work together within clinical networks and teams, across traditional health boundaries, to improve clinical pathways and manage patient care as locally as possible.
Planned Care Overarching Model
Clinical Networks were established in 2014 as part of Ipswich and East Suffolk CCG’s explicit strategy to mobilise clinical leadership.
The aims of the Clinical Networks included “support the redesign of services for integration across local health system (enable the principles of the prime contractor model where appropriate to inform potential contractual changes through the established contracting mechanism)”. The CCG still very much endorses this aim and for 2015/16, the learning from the Clinical Networks helped form a number of Clinical Transformation Groups (CTG) for specific speciality areas to focus transformation of the whole clinical pathway.
