Extended Access to General Practice Services in Scarborough and Ryedale

NHS Scarborough and Ryedale CCG is looking at ways to give patients greater access to general practice services outside of traditional surgery hours, with more appointments potentially available for people to see a doctor or other healthcare professional at evenings and weekends.

We want to introduce a service that is shaped around the needs of local people and throughout early 2018 we consulted residents through face-to-face contact and an online survey.

The results of the feedback received will help design and implement the extended hours service specification, With the intention the service will be available from Spring 2019, you can read the findings of the initial report, here.

Community Services

The contracts for community health services in Scarborough and Ryedale expired in October 2017 and as part of the procurement process engagement with patients and carers has been carried out by the CCG. As a result of feedback received, a clear picture of the health and social care landscape in our area emerged. Importantly, the evidence gathered gave a strong steer in terms of what could be done differently and what could be done better so a decision was made to pause the procurement process to allow consideration on how to design future community health services so they would best meet the needs of patients and carers.

As a result of this feedback a decision was taken to undertake a further exercise to seek support for the key aim of an integrated health and social care service. This was a soft engagement exercise seeking support for a direction of travel incorporating the following key principles:

  • A focus on prevention
  • Single point of contact
  • Shared records
  • Staff working seamlessly across organisational boundaries
  • Possible creation of new health and social care roles
  • Improved signposting to services

Adult ADHD/Autisim in Scarborough and Ryedale

NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group (SRCCG) undertook an engagement exercise to engage with the local community and gather feedback on the adult autism and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) assessment and diagnostic service.

The service was commissioned by the NHS Partnership Commissioning Unit (PCU) in January 2016 following a competitive tender on behalf of the four CCGs across North Yorkshire. The contract was for two years and was due to expire on the 31st December 2017. CCGs across North Yorkshire agreed to continue the service with the current provider and extend the contract for a further year.

When a contract is due to expire, it is an opportunity to review the current pathways and service specification to ensure that the service meets the needs of the local population. You can read the full report of this consultation, here.

Breast Care One Stop Service at York Hospital

NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group (SRCCG), wanted to hear the views of patients accessing the Breast Care Service – One Stop Clinic provided by York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (YFT).

The service offered to SRCCG patients at York Hospital offers a "one stop clinic" that includes consultation, tests and a diagnosis undertaken during a one day out patient visit.
