  9. @markhawker Mark you could be mixing #telecare and #telehealth here – significantly different. LA’s should not assess for a service
  10. @clarkmike True. I guess I thought I’d see whether there was a broad approach in #1care (e.g. @clarercgp @amcunningham) although would …
  11. @markhawker Check SCIE, TLAP, DH sources for assessment of need in social care – covered by legislation, guidance etc
  12. @clarkmike be more part of LAs, as you say. It’s on my list of things to ask. Little (academic) things on it, probably more in real-world.
  13. @markhawker Telehealth is pilots & small programmes only in UK – will have local criteria for access to a pilot/programme. Not ‘mainstream’
  14. @clarkmike Yes, see what you mean. Came about because of Bradford’s free service based on assessed need. Just wondered what that was!
  15. @markhawker A lot of #telecare also provided through Housing – sheltered, supported, extra care, special schemes etc – part of whole service
  16. @clarkmike Yes, have links there so will follow-up the question with them, too!
  17. @markhawker Local authorities have statutory responsibilities/duties to assess need (not service) – covered by various legislation/guidance
  18. @markhawker Local authority responsibilities currently being consolidated in England in Care and Support Bill following Law Comm work
  19. @markhawker Considerable local authority case law and ombudsman reports on ‘assessed need’
  20. @markhawker I’m not aware of guidelines – probably in research projects though? @clarkmike @clarercgp #1care
  21. @clarkmike If you have any links, do pass them on otherwise will have a search this afternoon.
  22. @clarkmike Thanks, Mike. Will follow that this afternoon! 🙂
  23. @amcunningham @markhawker @clarercgp Local authority #telecare covered by legn/guidance. #Telehealth is projects in UK – covered by protocol
  24. @markhawker Start with SCIE assessment for social workers bit.ly/XH5sY1 – may be differences in Wales, Scotland, NI
  25. @clarkmike @markhawker You’re right to highlight the difference. Media are tending to conflate & confuse the two.

  7. @uk_james #Kent_IntCare2013 Interested to hear if a single CCG is taking responsibility for integrated commissioning across whole of Kent
  8. .@clarkmike no, but 4 CCGs in E Kent working together as a federation, with @Kent_cc @KentSocialCare #Kent_IntCare2013
  9. @uk_james @Kent_cc @KentSocialCare So, one CCG in East will work as lead commissioner with 3 separate CCGs in West for integrated working?
  10. @uk_james @Kent_cc @KentSocialCare Are 4 CCGs in East Kent pooling money with social care for integrated working/lead commissioning?

  14. @clarkmike will need to see how picture emerges, early days for CCGs. There is a N Kent Alliance – Swale, DGS and Medway #Kent_IntCare2013
  15. .@clarkmike there is one Kent HWBB – with 7 sub-committees – local HWBBs developing. Includes district councils too #Kent_IntCare2013
  16. @uk_james #Kent_IntCare2013 Will each of 7 sub-HWBBs have JSNA, pooled funds and lead provider(s) for integrated services?
  17. @clarkmike not quite – but looking for opportunities to pool where it makes sense #Kent_IntCare2013
  18. #Kent_IntCare2013 Overall PCTs had £85bn & CCGs will have £65bn. How will 7 CCGs use money differently for integration cf 2 PCTs? @uk_james

  20. @clarkmike tweet discussed – answer “no” but look how the 4 @KentSocialCare can develop #integratedcare blueprint #Kent_IntCare2013
  21. @uk_james #Kent_IntCare2013 So is it 4 Lead CCGs working across 1 local authority with 1 7 HWBBs with unidentified £ for integrated care?

  23. @clarkmike £ being identified across stat orgs at CCG boundary level – work in progress at moment to identify #Kent_IntCare2013
  24. Important to include #socialcare early with NHS metrics in @NHSCB #NHSCB@tkelsey1 – transparent & widely available on multiple platforms
  25. #Kent_IntCare2013 Is it clear how 4 1 1 1 CCGs will do better at establishing future integrated services with less £ than 2 PCTs? @uk_james
  26. @uk_james #kent_intcare2013 Shouldn’t commissioning structure be driven by coordinated care? Care is created at interface of user/caregiver
  27. @clarkmike think we’re saying same thing – #integratedcare should be created through integrated commissioning #Kent_IntCare2013
  28. @uk_james #kent_intcare2013 Integrated care thru’ integrated comm not worked v well as model thus far-need to work from individual as well
  29. @uk_james #Kent_IntCare2013 From tweets so far, difficult to see how Kent will get to integrated commissioning/care – is there a roadmap?
