Local NHS Shortlisted for national Award

Saturday, September 9th, 2017

NHS Crawley CCG and NHS Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG have been shortlisted for the ‘PHBS (Personal Health Budgets) and the End of the Life Pathway’ Award, at the Third Sector Awards.

While most people wish to die at home, more than half will die in unfamiliar surroundings in a hospital. In many cases, they remain in hospital when no further medical treatment will be given, meaning they could receive end of life care in a different, more comfortable setting, such as their own home or a care home.

In 2016, third sector organisations and NHS commissioners explored how they could support a person’s End of Life choices, improve quality of life and experience of care and save the NHS money. It costs the NHS on average £23,000 more per person for the last year of care in a hospital setting.

As a result of this partnership a new way of working has been developed which helps individuals to access Personal Health Budgets (PHB), support End of Life conversations and enable personal choices so they can have a ‘good death’ in their preferred place.

Nick Seecharan, CCG Programme Manager for Long Term Conditions, said: “We are thrilled that this project, which improves experiences of both life and death, has been recognised at a national level.

“All of the people who took part in the pilot received a PHB, were able to plan for end of life care and died where they said they would like to. They received support to access and manage their funding and were able to use the person centred materials to have healthy conversations with loved ones and professionals to choose their ‘good death’.

“We are now working to evaluate the potential impacts of extending the pilot, assessing whether this is the best way of using our resources to support people to manage their end of life care.”

Personal Health Budgets allow individuals more choice and flexibility over how they manage their own health needs new ways of offering them are being piloted.

James Sanderson, Director of Personalised Care at NHS England, said:  “Empowering people to make choices and tailor their healthcare is fundamental to the changes that the NHS is seeking to make over the next few years.  Personal health budgets are a tool to do this and I am delighted to see Crawley CCG and Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG, together with partners across the voluntary and community sector, recognised for their work in this area. With NHS England’s support they have developed an innovative framework that supports end of life conversations, gives people more choice and helps more people to die in a place of their choosing. This work is part of a nationally-led improvement programme aiming to make good on the Government’s commitment to end of life care so that everyone approaching the end of life receives care that is personalised and focused on their individual needs and preferences.”

The award ceremony will take place on Thursday 21st September at London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square.
