The NHS Bromley CCG Annual Report and Accounts for 2018/19 is now available. The report will be formally presented at the Annual General Meeting on Thursday 4 July 2019.
Dr Andrew Parson, Chair of the CCG said, “This year’s report provides an account of our work over the last year, the way we run the CCG, our performance against national targets and how we have managed our finances. We have done extremely well to meet all our financial targets and statutory obligations this year, which is a good achievement when set against the continued challenges and increased pressure on health services. Our ‘good’ rating by our regulators together with our ‘outstanding’ rating for public and patient participation illustrates the impact of us working collaboratively together with partners and the public to improve care for Bromley residents. There are areas that need to be improved and we will continue to focus on ensuring that Bromley residents get the best possible care that is available.
“Over the last year we have worked hard with our partners as part of our One Bromley integrated care system to deliver joined up care across a range of services. Patients are benefiting from this approach – for example over 3,000 patients have been referred onto our proactive care pathway which provides an assessment and a personalised package of care to keep them well and out of hospital. Other new schemes to help keep people well at home have been put in place and are having an impact.
Although we have a significantly older population in Bromley than many of our neighbouring boroughs, we also have increasing numbers of new births and young people. We know that the numbers of young people who are struggling with their mental health across the country is unprecedented. In the autumn, we were delighted to receive £2.4 million additional funding and chosen as a NHS mental health trailblazer site. This will enable us to establish new Mental Health Support Teams to develop models of early intervention to manage mild to moderate mental health issues in school and college settings. This new provision will be integrated into a new children and young people’s emotional wellbeing and mental health system which is being co-designed and co-produced with young people.
“As we look ahead to another year of delivering health care to Bromley residents, our thanks go to our patients, staff, GP member practices, providers and partners across health, social care and the voluntary sector for their contributions towards improving healthcare for people in Bromley”.
