New Model of Care Strategy (SWCCG)

The publication of the NHS Five Year Forward View tasked CCGs to look at changes in how they commission services to help tackle the challenges they face.

Since June 2015 SWCCG has been exploring how it can implement a new model of care in line with the various options identified by NHS England. Based on national research alongside their local work on the specific strengths and challenges of the South Worcestershire health and care economy they have identified that the Multi-specialty Community Provider (MCP) approach is likely to be the most suitable option. This is set out in their New Model of Care Strategy.

An MCP model brings together the various aspects of ‘out of hospital’ care together into a more coordinated and structured way. For example, it will require the combining of some contracts and will require formal alliances of providers (including primary, community and acute care) to be formed to support more joined up care in future.

Although SWCCG are only at an early stage of developing this model and there are still a lot of details to resolve, they are currently asking people who provide care and the patients who receive care what they think of their suggested approach.

Please let SWCCG know your thoughts by completing a short questionnaire, emailing them or writing using the freepost address:
