Since the last Transformation Board on 6th September 2017 the following is a summary of key actions or events:
The New Care Models Evaluation Team from NHS England have continued to work with us to finalise logic models (defining our expected outcomes) and Andy Cross, Public Health, is developing an evaluation framework to ensure we are focussed on what outcomes we want to achieve and to evaluate our success. We have also used this approach to develop our Surrey Heartlands wide outcome model – a live version of which was finalised with comments received after presentation at the last Transformation Board.
Highlight reports from each workstream are included in papers for today’s Transformation Board
Dates are being set for the next review sessions with Transformation Board of all workstreams in November 2017 which will include clarity of expected outcomes; refresh of financial opportunities and identifying any barriers to programme delivery.
Transformation Board members will be invited as Executive Sponsors to the workstream they are leading on but are also invited to all the reviews.
A substantive agenda item on today’s Transformation Board is the implementation of our Surrey Heartlands Investment Framework. This will be to start the allocation of £9m (from a total of £15m) of Transformation Funding that NHSE have agreed to devolve to Surrey Heartlands from end Sept 2017.
Surrey Heartlands Transformation Board will consider the long list of level 1, 2 and 3 outline business cases and ensure clarity of criteria for investment, next steps for formal approval/rejection and any further actions.
A key agenda item today is in regard to checking our plans for responses to the pressures that winter places on our health and care system and our ability to respond well and support faster system recovery from any impact. Included in this discussion will be prioritise
- Appointment of Dr Mark Hamilton to the role of Executive Clinical Director
- Scoping with clinical work streams of innovation support requirements by Academic Health Science Network post of Tech Navigator aligned to Surrey Heartlands
- Briefing paper for Surrey Heartlands Expo to be held in Feb/March 2018 currently being prepared; for November Board. Expected to include showcasing of beneficial tech aligned to work streams, showcase for our machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) expertise. We have secured facilitation from the Kings Fund as part of our ACS development package to support this
- Scoping underway to identify solution for “bottom up” engagement to identify and spread innovations from work force.
- Clinical Forum for 11th October 2017 scheduled with a focus on mental health, prevention and primary care engagement
- Scoping work underway with the Institute of Healthcare Innovation to develop proposals for Surrey Heartlands to become a “Quality Improvement System”
- Transformation Board member attended a 3 days system leadership event run by Professor David Berg as part of our ongoing development supported by Health Education England and Yale University. Feedback from attendees was positive. Board members formed 5 ‘units’ to tackle 5 key areas ahead of a follow-up 2 sessions on 13th and 14th November 2017.
- Two teams from of Surrey Heartlands (UEC and digital/MSK) started NHSI funded Transformational Change System Leadership events in September 2017.
- One team formed to apply for the next Yale Strategic System Leadership programme (funded by the NHS Leadership Academy). The team is Russell Hills, Chair of Surrey Downs CCG, Justin Newman Devolution Director and Ruth Hutchinson, Deputy Director of Public Health. If accepted into the programme their specific focus will be on diversity and inclusion. As Board members will know we have specific areas of inequality and deprivation in Surrey that we would like to responded better too – in particular a high population of people with learning disabilities as well as one of the highest Gypsy Roma traveler populations nationally.
- The Workforce workstream is overseeing the development of a whole system approach to investing in system leadership locally.
Since the Board last met the core team has overseen our public communications refresh including:
- Surrey Heartlands website (www.surreyheartlands.uk) live from 22nd September 2017. We are still working to make this more dynamic and to be the first site of responses in any searched. We welcome feedback to email@example.com

- The relaunch of the Surrey Heartlands staff and stakeholder newsletter as a wholly digital e-newsletter
- Continuously reviewing how we are using digital media to better communicate our plans and achievements as well as promoting wider engagement. Priority is currently being given to developing increased use of video – for example short ‘talking head’ interviews on the website to explain key elements such as the clinical academy and devolution
- Blogs from the SRO, and guest bloggers within our system, which will appear on the website and be promoted across our social media channels
- All workstreams have their own pages on the website. Programme Managers have been made aware so that they can provide individual updates.
