Clinical reviews

Our clinical reviews of major change programmes include:
1. pdfNorth Derbyshire transformation programme
The East Midlands Clinical Senate was approached by North Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Hardwick Clinical Commissioning Group to provide independent clinical advice on the North Derbyshire transformation programme as part of the NHS England assurance process prior to public consultation. The review panel were asked to review the case for change and planned to approach the development of community hubs.

2. Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Better Care Together
Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, like many health communities, are facing a range of issues that are requiring them to rethink how services are provided. There is an over reliance by the public on A&E, demographic changes such as the increase of older, frailer people, changing public expectations and financial challenges. In response, the local health and social care organisations have developed a 5 year strategic plan, the Better Care Together programme, to improve health and social care services.

East Midlands Clinical Senate have undertaken a review of the proposed options during late 2015 and the report will be published shortly.

3. Lincolnshire health and care programme (June 2014 and October 2015)
Following on from the previous review and advice given to the Lincolnshire Health and Care (LHAC) programme in June 2014, East Midlands Clinical Senate undertook an independent clinical review of the further options being developed for public consultation. This review was conducted to inform the NHS England assurance process. The report has been drafted and shared with commissioners.
