Frailty Evidence Review
(August 2018)
There is a lack of consensus on a definition for frailty. This evidence review sets out to gather the latest and best known information to help understand the implications of frailty on a local population

National General Practice Profiles for Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group
These profiles are designed to support GPs, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and local authorities to ensure that they are providing and commissioning effective and appropriate healthcare services for their local population.

NHS RightCare Pathways
NHS RightCare Pathways are developed in close collaboration with NHS England’s National Clinical Directors, patient groups, Public Health England, Royal Colleges, and other key stakeholders. They aim to provide a set of resources to support Local Health Economies to concentrate their improvement efforts on where there is greatest opportunity to address variation and improve population health.

Commissioning for Value - NHS England

NHS RightCare provide local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and local health economies practical support in gathering data, evidence and tools to help them improve the way care is delivered for their patients and populations. Below are the latest 
NHS Wirral CCG RightCare packs:

Further information on these packs and other content can be found in the resources section of the NHS England website. The information in these products will be of particular interest to CCG clinical and management leads with responsibility for finance, performance, improvement and health outcomes; to NHS England regional teams; to other stakeholders within each STP footprint area; and to commissioning support teams who are helping CCGs with this work.

Wirral CVD Primary Care Intelligence Pack May 2016 
The intelligence pack has several sections – CVD prevention, hypertension, stroke and AF, diabetes, kidney and heart disease and heart failure. Each section has one slide of narrative that makes the case and asks some questions. This is followed by data for a number of indicators, each with benchmarked comparison between CCGs and between practices.

The 'How' of Integrated Commissioning
In September 2014, the Independent Commission on the Future of Health and Social Care in England, established by The King’s Fund, called for the introduction of a ‘single local commissioner’ framework to replace the existing fragmented landscape of health and social care commissioning. This latest report looks at how single local commissioners, backed by integrated ring-fenced budgets, could be implemented across the country by 2020 - without the need for top-down organisational upheaval.

Exercise: The miracle cure and the role of the doctor in promoting it 
(produced by Academy of Medical Royal Colleges) (February 2015)
The big four “proximate” causes of preventable ill-health are: smoking, poor nutrition, lack of physical activity and alcohol excess. Relatively low levels of increased activity can make a huge difference. All the evidence suggests small amounts of regular exercise (five times a week for 30 minutes each time for adults) brings dramatic benefits. The exercise should be moderate – enough to get a person slightly out of breath and/or sweaty, and with an increased heart rate. This report is a thorough review of that evidence. This report sets out what doctors can do on a one-to-one basis and in a broader way with communities and organisations, including their own as many doctors are themselves employers. 

Care Quality Commission (CQC) Intelligent Monitoring for NHS GP practices
The Intelligent Monitoring (IM) tool has been developed to give CQC a clearer understanding of each provider, which informs their inspectors where they should inspect, and what to focus on during an inspection. It will assist them when planning the inspection programme for NHS GP practices. The tool draws on existing and established national data sources, and includes indicators covering a range of activity in GP practices and the experiences of patients. The indicators relate to the five key questions that we will ask of all services when they inspect: are they safe, effective, caring, responsive, and well-led

Making NHS data transparent will help to drive up quality and create even better services.

At this website you can see key data used by the NHS and local councils to monitor performance and shape the services you use. NHS Choices will add to the information, listen to what you want, and work to make it as clear as possible. 

JSNA support for GPs and Practices

This page of the Wirral JSNA website has been created specifically for GPs and Practice Staff to access information in the JSNA and then onto additional information on a number of subjects that are part of the Practice Performance Framework.

These new support documents carry a range of information that adds greater depth to that already known by GPs and Practice Staff and will help you to consider other options, ideas and solutions through further local and national evidence and wider good practice. 

The documents are available via hyperlink from the 'Top 10 diagnostics' reports received by practices and will inform service planning and provision. With this immediate access to the content and JSNA webpages it will further enhance the decision making processes made at practice and consortia level.
For further information visit the Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group website.
