South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System

Introduction by Sir Andrew Cash
Andrew Cash

This week’s newsletter reports on an excellent new nationally-funded pilot scheme to support children and young people experiencing mental health issues in 50 schools across Doncaster and Rotherham. We also report on changes in key leadership roles across the System.

The new pilot scheme, called 'With Me in Mind', is a national project to provide dedicated mental health support teams in schools. It launches in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw with a few chosen schools, with a view to a wider roll-out across our footprint. What makes this special is that it was co-designed with children and young people. 

Meanwhile, the NHS Operational Planning and Contracting Guidance for 2020/21 has also now been published, along with an emerging financial framework. The Guidance sets out the expectations across system planning, operational requirements, people and financial settlements as the NHS plans to deliver the 2020/21 elements of the NHS Long Term Plan commitments.

A special note of thanks too to our SYB organisations who as well as dealing with pressures on the system that are synonymous with the time of year, are also now managing COVID 19 (coronavirus) and the additional asks of colleagues as the NHS steps up its response to the threat.

Finally I would like to welcome new colleagues and extend warm wishes to those leaving. First, welcome to Dr Tim Noble in his new role as Medical Director at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals, and our thanks and good wishes to Sewa Singh, who retires next month. Sewa held the post for many years and has contributed greatly to medical leadership at the Trust since 1996. Welcome too to Michael Wright who joins Dr Richard Jenkins’ team at The Rotherham Foundation Trust. Richard started in his CEO role with the Trust this week and Michael is the Interim Deputy Chief Executive.

It is also farewell to Jayne Brown OBE as she steps down from her position as Chair at Sheffield Health and Social Care next month and also Louise Barnett, former TRFT CEO. Jayne and Louise have made significant contributions to their respective Trusts during their tenures and we wish them all the best in their future endeavours.

Innovative Mental Health Scheme Trialled in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw
mh-projc-with me in mind
Mental health support teams (MHSTs) have been officially launched in selected schools in two South Yorkshire towns as part of a nationally-funded pilot scheme.

Co-designed and co-produced with children and young people from the very start, the service, ‘With me in Mind’, aims to reduce waiting lists for mental health support and improve the overall wellbeing of pupils experiencing various mental health issues.

Across Doncaster and Rotherham, the pilot is supporting a cohort of approximately 32,000 children and young people in around 50 schools and colleges.

Last year, the NHS joined up with schools and colleges in 25 areas across England to provide expert mental health support. This covers a population of up to 500,00 pupils a year to help transform children and young people’s mental health through the NHS Long-Term Plan.

Commissioning teams from Doncaster and Rotherham worked with schools and the Young Advisors panel to create a brand design, book and film which would be part of the new service in addition to offering up new ideas of how to better engage with young people in schools. The final look and feel of the service as well as the engagement channels chosen to communicate with pupils have all been selected by young people.

NHS Operational Planning and Contracting Guidance 2020/21
OPCG
The NHS Operational Planning and Contracting Guidance for 2020/21 was published on 30 January.

The Guidance sets out the expectations across system planning, operational requirements, people and financial settlements as the NHS plans to deliver the 2020/21 elements of the NHS Long Term Plan commitments, which local systems have developed through their strategic plans. This includes maintaining and improving access to services, expanding primary and community services, continuing to transform the way care is provided by working within systems which include both NHS and wider partners, meeting the mental health investment standard, continuing to improve outcomes and care for people of all ages with a learning disability or autism, beginning to implement the forthcoming People Plan, reducing the impact the NHS has on the environment by reducing its carbon footprint, living within agreed financial trajectories, and embedding and strengthening the governance of our systems as we move to a ‘system by default’ operational model.

Different systems are at different levels of maturity, however, there are some consistent operating arrangements that systems are expected to agree with regional directors and to put in place during 2020. These include system-wide governance arrangements to enable a collective model of responsibility and decision-making between system partners, a leadership model for the system, including an ICS leader and a non-executive chair appointed in line with NHS England and NHS Improvement guidance, system capabilities including population health management, service redesign, workforce transformation, and digitisation, agreed ways of working across the system in respect of financial governance and collaboration, streamlining commissioning arrangements, and capital and estates plans at a system level.
Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals Appoint New Medical Director
tim-noble
Following a rigorous recruitment process, Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals have appointed a Medical Director.

Dr Tim Noble, currently one of the Trust’s Deputy Medical Directors, will take over the position in late March. He replaces current post-holder, Mr Sewa Singh, who announced in November 2019 of is plans to retire following 20 years of service.

A move to Barnsley Hospital followed in 2003 and Tim started his career at DBTH in 2006 as a Consultant Respiratory Physician.

Tim said: “I am delighted to have been appointed Medical Director at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals. 

“These are changing times for the NHS, both locally and nationally. With an increased focus on technology, as well as an appetite to do things differently, I think it presents an incredible opportunity to advance what we do as a Trust, enhancing safety, working smarter and ultimately, being better for local people.

Chief Executive of DBTH, Richard Parker OBE, said: "I am confident that Tim will further enhance our patient services, ultimately helping us in our aim to be the safest Trust in England, outstanding in all that we do.

"I hope you will join me in wishing Tim the very best of luck in his role new, as well as expressing our heartfelt thanks to Sewa. I wish him the very happiest and healthiest of retirements."
