Draft Local Plan

Policy 10.7: Infrastructure and Community Facilities

Representation ID: 15446

Received: 09/05/2016

Respondent: Basildon and Brentwood Clinical Commissioning Group (NHS)

Representation Summary:

We believe that there is a clear alignment between the vision for vibrant and thriving communities outlined in the Local Plan and BB CCG's strategic objectives of commissioning high quality and sustainable healthcare services which will support the local population to optimise and maintain their wellbeing and independence, and to reduce the inequalities in health outcomes evident between populations in different parts of our area. We acknowledge that achieving these objectives is not without its challenges, given the pressures that the local health economy, in common with many other areas nationally, is currently facing. The challenge is essentially increasing demand for services, primarily driven by demographic change (both more people requiring services and increasing complexity of needs), and significant constraints on the resources - financial, workforce and the physical capacity available to meet these demands and needs.

Draft Local Plan

Policy 10.7: Infrastructure and Community Facilities

Representation ID: 15448

Received: 09/05/2016

Respondent: Basildon and Brentwood Clinical Commissioning Group (NHS)

Representation Summary:

Developing more effective ways of working: the CCG is acutely aware that simply expanding capacity to accommodate ever increasing demand is neither possible nor desirable. Therefore, the CCG is seeking to support more effective provision of services, by driving greater collaboration and integration between local health and social care providers working across the primary, community and acute hospital sectors. It is recognised that the delivery of more coherent services to our population requires the establishment, or re-establishment, of more effective working relationships between professional teams and organisations. A key element in facilitating this approach will be the direct alignment of community health and care teams with specific GP practices. In this way the practice becomes a hub around which the care provided to the registered population is coordinated.
In addition, as noted in the Local Plan, Brentwood Community Hospital represents a significant resource situated within the Borough, and the CCG is committed to ensuring that it is fully utilised to strengthen the community-based provision of healthcare, including sub-acute inpatient facilities, for our population.

Draft Local Plan

Policy 10.7: Infrastructure and Community Facilities

Representation ID: 15449

Received: 09/05/2016

Respondent: Basildon and Brentwood Clinical Commissioning Group (NHS)

Representation Summary:

Developing more effective ways of working: Equally importantly, BB CCG is seeking to support a reduction in need, through the development of services that help our population to take greater control of their own health and also by working with partner organisations that can have a positive impact on health and wellbeing. Therefore, BB CCG recognises that, whilst on one hand the increase in population projected within the Local Plan is likely to increase pressure on services, on the other these pressures could be more than offset by the opportunity, outlined in the Plan, to address some of the wider determinants of health, including employment, education, housing and the local environment. BB CCG will welcome the opportunity to work with Brentwood Council and other local partners to support these developments.

Draft Local Plan

Policy 10.7: Infrastructure and Community Facilities

Representation ID: 15450

Received: 09/05/2016

Respondent: Basildon and Brentwood Clinical Commissioning Group (NHS)

Representation Summary:

Improved use of technology: BB CCG believes that there is a real prospect of using emerging technologies to provide new and effective ways for the local population to access health care advice and support from the place and at the time that is convenient for them. In this way we are expecting to both improve people's experience of health services, and deliver new approaches to provision that will allow projected increases in demand to be accommodated without placing unsustainable pressure on physical capacity.
