Spotlight On: Social Care
We had a great turn out for our public forum event on 22nd July where we heard from Alexandra Laidler – Acting Director of Adult Social Care and looked at case studies of people using social care services to think about what could go wrong, what should happen and if there were any experiences people wanted to share. We have a report from the event that we would like to share with you, please find it here to download.

The summer weather has meant that there have been lots of great activities in and around the borough!  Did you see us at Southwark Eid Festival, Time and Talents Summer Party or at Silverlock TRA Community Fun Day?  Tell us about any events you are planning and follow us on twitter here to see what we are up to.

Mentally ill patients forced to travel hundreds of miles for treatment, forcible sectioning in order to get beds and medical students begging for greater teaching on psychiatry: we’re not getting it right. A report this week was grim reading for those involved in mental health care. The survey of GPs revealed that one in five had seen patients harmed as a result of “delays or a lack of support” from mental health services, while shortfalls had forced 82% of doctors to act “outside of their competence”.

NHS England announces hiatus over fears patients are in the dark

Top clinical bodies have blasted the plans to share medical records (via their Care.Data Programme). NHS says it wants to improve ‘understanding’ of the scheme.
Controversial plans to share medical records will be delayed until later this year ‘to allow more time to build understanding of the benefits of using the information’, health officials have said.
Pressure has been mounting on NHS England, the body behind the scheme, after doctors leaders said patients need to know how their data will be used outside the NHS. Read more.

NHS Care.Data programme – Healthwatch’s response
You may have seen headlines BBC online  Daily Mirror last week stating that NHS England have agreed to delay the roll out of care.data until  the Autumn instead of April 2014. This follows on from local concerns raised through local Healthwatchs to Healthwatch England, with Healthwatch England writing a letter to Sir David Nicholson, Chief Exec of NHS England, and media pressure from us and other orgs over the last fortnight calling for the delay.

Thank you to all who raised your concerns about this programme with us. Without this evidence we/Healthwatch England wouldn’t have been able to exercise our statutory powers and force the NHS to listen to what patients and the public had to say.

Summary:
From April 2014, NHS England were due to roll out their data collection programme called care.data. It aimed to compile a central anonymised database by taking records from GP Practices and linking them with hospital records. Currently, information has been available from hospitals, but not what happens in GP surgeries. By collecting and linking this information, it would help to assess disease, examine new drugs  and other performance monitoring areas.

Improving health services in Dulwich and the surrounding areas – update!

To be added to the stakeholder database contact SOUCCG.southwark-ccg@nhs.net. Read more.
