COVID Vaccination DES Set up

COVID Vaccination DES Set up

November 7, 2020

Join Andy and Gandhi LIVE as they talk about setting up a COVID flu vaccination clinic with respect to what we know of the DES as the Government announces plans to start vaccinations in the next couple of months.

 

This episode has guest appearances and more....

Speculated DES guidance: https://www.gponline.com/gps-deliver-two-dose-covid-19-vaccination-1258-per-jab-seven-days-week/article/1699389?fbclid=IwAR0SOUhJNFMwoU4id7bqerefWlNkgn8YL-CGgPq7ekqoAz_rwlScash8WUE

 

COVID Vaccination DES - Awaited

Due last night….

 

Approved by GPC Thursday…

Leak leading to info on GPONline & Pulse

 

Sun - GPs Open at weekends, Xmas day, boxing day

GPs told the have a “Moral Duty” without understanding implications - workforce

 

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/13130975/doctors-vaccine-covid-christmas-boxing-day/

 

So what do we believe is in the DES?????

 

Use GP surgeries to deliver COVID19 Vaccine, as early as December

 

975 vaccinations a dose at single sites per network = 81 hrs - 12hrs a day, 7 days a week

PCN sites

PPE and distancing

 

GP Consent?

Standardized consent package produced centrally

Video?

Group consultations?

 

Side effects including fever, monitor for, not known

Drive-by not practical

 

£12.58/dose, 2 doses, paid on second dose (even if the first dose is given?) exemptions process possibly?

Is this enough?

 

Logistics and storage, “vial of 1000 doses”, 2 people to draw up, -70c until used

Describes

Changes accelerated by COVID19

Recognises regulator must transform

 

Themes

People 

Smart

Safe

Improve

 

References

New restrictions in providing care

New digital channels

New ways of working

New services

Offer regulation that is more relevant

Managing risks and uncertainty

“As the regulator of health and social care, we need to cement our place in that new world. As I’ve said previously, we’re not going to return to the way we worked previously — this will mean some big changes.”

 

Use of data and analytics and “AI” to support intelligence-based activity - to assist regulation and target inspections?

 

The greater importance of dashboards

Themes

 

People

Look at touch points on a patient journey - patient-centered shift?

We want our information to help people make decisions about care and to enable and empower them to drive change. 

Look at effectiveness systems of not just organisations but systems - PCNs, ICS, CCG?

Renewed focus on inequalities? Champion in everything we do… More pressure on systems to address these?

 

Smart

This means a more dynamic approach to regulating: moving away from relying on periodic inspections of services

and harnessing information from all sources to continually assess the quality and update ratings. Data will underpin all our activity, allowing us to understand risk and how people are experiencing care, 

target our resources for the greatest impact, and be more proactive than reactive.

Greater use of data and dashboards to target activity

Responsive rather than cyclical and planned

 

Looking at the value of services to the community and effect on the overall system? - Implications for services like GP at hand?

 

“Where services are innovative, we’ll look at how they benefit people as well as how they support the sustainability of the local community and how they meet their social and ethical responsibilities. We’ll recognise and capture where quality has improved and will share this learning”

 

Safe

we’ll commit to enforcing standards of safety much more proactively so that services focus on protecting people, including their human rights. 

Where quality and safety are compromised, we’ll be quicker to intervene to prevent unnecessary harm to people caused by unsafe and toxic cultures. 

 

Improve

We want to provide benchmarking information so they can measure their performance against similar services, and then make sure they have access to the support they need to make the changes real.

Improvement partnerships? CCGs, NHSE & Area teams, LMCs?

26 Sept Episode - NHS COVID-19

 

Welcome

 

Introductions

 

Live Saturday Episode

 

DFPC Conference

 

Demo…

 

Video on screen

 

Postcode - lets you know if area is high risk

Cant change

Info on localised measures and restrictions

Data stays on the app and doesn’t need to go anywhere else

 

Venue check in - QR code

 

Check symptoms

Read latest advice

About the app

Enter test result

Switch off contact tracing

How it works diagram and privacy - use FT diagram

https://www.ft.com/content/d2609e26-8... 

No centrally stored data - everything is dispersed across everyone’s phones…

Supposed to address privacy concerns 

No GPS or location data…

All data on phone...

Will people download it?

Use not compulsory

£1-10k fine if you refuse to self isolate… but the government won’t know

Matt Hancock stated was optional….

Will you use it?

 

Coverage needed?

50% based on comments about German App

In May Iceland had highest uptake with 38% of its 364k population

Singapore has 37% - early leader, bit more authoritarian

Should GPs use the app in surgery?

Can pause contact tracing for periods of time

Not use if wearing PPE??????

Flu clinics?

 

Should we display a code at the surgery - like bars, hair salons and other venues?

Bars etc. required to display under regulations

No contractual obligation - voluntary

Here is the link to create a code

https://www.gov.uk/create-coronavirus... 

 

Will your surgery promote it?

Problems!!!

 

NHS tests do not link to the app - relevant code currently not provided

https://twitter.com/NHSCOVID19app/sta... 

 

Will it overwhelm testing centres?

 

Why the delay?

“World beating app” supposed to be released 4 months ago?

UK rejects apple/google solution

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology...

UK Abandons own app

https://healthcareleadernews.com/covi... 

Battery and privacy and technical concerns...

 

Thoughts?

 

Missed opportunity?...

Window of opportunity still open?

 

Work as part of a whole range of measures

 

But will be so much more ready for the next pandemic?

 

Opens lots of future possibilities…

New model for handling health data and sharing health data

Gets people used to some health data

Google and Apple as health data partners - kudos and entrance for them to the area

Gets people used to using a smart app to guide health behaviours

Open doors for health apps in the future

So after all that - will you use it? Will you recommend it?

Digital primary care update - Appointments, flu and video consultations

Digital primary care update - Appointments, flu and video consultations

September 12, 2020

Join Andy and Gandhi for their latest Digital Primary Care update after a brief break. What is new in general practice and digital health, find out here.

 

Welcome eGPlearners

 

Back from our summer break.

 

Are you refreshed?

 

Working on DPC conferences - sign up!

 

Congratulations to fellow eGPlearner and long time Listener - Dr Sonali Kinra on her election to the National RCGP council. 

 

What are we talking about this morning?

 

A story about NHSD plans to count GP appointment data and the focus on appointment as the unit of work https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content...

A story about how a CCG is partnering with video consult provider LIVI to make video consultations available for all of there 220,000 patients.

Story and discussion about flu immunisation in practices and preparedness

Main discussion point this week.

Mapping time and appointments in GP has been a big issue on discussion forums this week.

 

New Guidance on accurate monitoring of GP Appointment Data from NHS-D : https://www.england.nhs.uk/gp/gpad/ 

 

Whats happening?

Data extraction from CRS to NHSD to monitor GP activity

 

Why causing a buzz?

Provided a definition of of what an appointment is? What will be counted… And what will not be counted as an appointment.

 

Go through on the PDF….

 

Talking points

If something isn’t counted then is it not valued? 

 

Extracting the appointment ledger does not reflect the work taking place

 

Letters

Bloods

Tasks

Undocumented phone calls

Supervising colleagues

 

Concern that the real amount of work taking place will be underestimated

 

What decisions about funding and resource allocation will be base on this data?

 

Secondary care better at or longer history of strategic data collection - due to historic payment mechanisms?

 

Leading to a wider discussion in some places about GP workload and the consequences of this being poorly defined and understood. Generally - issues of burnout?

 

We delude ourselves that we do 9 - 3.5hr sessions - the profession tells itself this lie?

 

How do you count activity….

Multiple problems in one appointment?

The number doesn’t equate to work and quality?

Everything on the ledger - make everything that can be ana appointment, an appointment

 

Should we instead focus on truly counting workload/activity?

 

Should we focus more on outcomes in this population health-driven world?

 

Why is this happening?

So Governement can say that there are X million more appointments after an initial count and then 

http://www.pulsetoday.co.uk/news/ccg-...

NHS North Tyneside CCG said the 12-month pilot would give free online GP services to 222,000 patients without them having to deregister from the area's 25 GP practices

 

?extended access funding

 

Some concerns from local GPS about the limitation of online appointments and whether funding could have been better spent with local practices.

https://www.digitalhealth.net/2019/09... 

Boots/Livi - £25 per appointment

Good for access

But erode / damage relationship and continuity with practices.

http://www.pulsetoday.co.uk/views/how...

 

More people - shielded, over 50s and existing groups

COVID infection control, social distancing and PPE requirements

 

The COVID vaccine plans and difference?

 

Some additional help...

City Care Staff locally able to do flu jabs

Delay 50-65s until November
