Our Year - Annual Report 2019-20

Our Annual Report and Accounts for 2019/20 sets out what the CCG has achieved in the past 12 months against the plans we have in place to improve the advice, support and care services that help our local communities have a good quality of life, recover from periods of ill health as close to home as possible, make healthier choices and remain active, engaged and independent for as long as they can. We also want to support local communities to do more for themselves and for each other

While we have had another successful year and have once again been rated “Good” by NHS England we know there are areas where our local health and care system needs to make improvements in both the short and long terms and we must drive these positive changes forward.

Achievements in the local health and care system include::

  • Support for people to manage their long term conditions and general health through the successful rollout of Thrive NEL, our social prescribing service, access to a health apps library, access to online GP consultations, free access to the MyCOPD app for patients and a new micro website to support better heart health
  • Support for Mental Health with a successful bid to fund more mental health and emotional wellbeing support for young people in educational settings, the roll out of suicide prevention training for the general public, the launch of an adult autism service and a website offering mental health support for new parents. Local Mental Health provider Navigo has also extended the opening times of its successful drop-in crisis café in Grimsby.
  • Five Primary Care Networks (PCNs) have been established in North East Lincolnshire, after a year of successful collaboration they are now planning to consolidate into three. Other innovation within primary care includes improved sharing of patient records, the roll out of new bowel cancer testing and events to help empower patients with breathing difficulties to take better control of their health ahead of the winter flu season.
  • The new Adult Strategy has been launched alongside an action plan setting out our ambition to help our adult population live the best lives they can. The latest Extra Care Housing Development, on the Nunsthorpe Estate in Grimsby, is nearing completion which will give residents access to enhanced levels of care while still maintaining their independence and their own front door. Work has been underway to improve the expertise of staff working with people who have been or may need to be deprived of their liberty under the Mental Capacity Act and work is ongoing to improve rehabilitation and reablement services to help people regain as much of their independence as possible following stays in hospital.

North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group is a unique organisation that commissions both health and adult social care services. The CCG is led by local GPs and works with its partners at the council and the organisations that provide health and care services in North East Lincolnshire.

Most importantly, the CCG is shaped by local residents and actively ask for the opinions and experiences of people who use health and care services.
