Northern and Eastern Devon LMC Sub Committee

The Sub-committee's focus in recent months has been on the transfer of work from secondary to primary care – and how we can recognise, record, monitor, stop and where appropriate be paid for it (or have control of resources to do it).

We have addressed:

  • Intermediate care – establishing a definition and introducing it into the conversation, both in Devon and nationally.
  • Centrifuges – preventing roll-out and compulsory use within Eastern Devon as planned by the Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust (RD&E). Sensible use now in place.
  • Engagement with RD&E about new Urgent Care Response Teams – important changes made to the scheme from that initially rolled out in a very hospital centric form.
  • Facilitation of Collaborative Boards for ‘at scale’ work, bringing Federations together, resisting CCG attempts to control and ‘own’ these groups in both the East and more recently in North Devon.
  • Electronic letter roll-out from RD&E – helped coordinate and improve this very successfully.
  • Specialist medicines – providing practices with lists about which have, or have not, got shared care agreements and template letters to address any anomalies to ensure transfer of work is fair and remunerated.
