In our latest roundup, Jack Serle discusses the newly-introduced HSJ Intelligence scores for each of the ICSs.
The scoring system can help users segment a confusing sector containing a broad range of organisations, and it can give an at-a-glance view of HSJI’s assessment of each ICS. The scores are based on the HSJI's principle of focusing on a relatively small number of judgements vital to senior NHS leaders.
Nine ICSs get a maximum five stars in the capability category, eight receive the top rating in the performance category.
The trust’s increased mental health demand is stretching capacity. Eliminating inappropriate out of area placements has been a focus for the trust in recent months. Waiting lists continue to increase, with the trust experiencing problems in its adult community psychological service. To address capacity shortages in some parts of the county, trust leaders plan to reallocate some resources from Thurrock’s establishment budget to Basildon and Brentwood. With staffing pressures a major concern during recent covid waves, the trust has embarked on wider recruitment activities in the hopes of boosting resilience and enabling the recovery of waiting lists.
With performance declining across the board, improving child and adolescent mental health services is a priority for the trust. It has brought in private support for autistic spectrum disorders where waits went over 52 weeks. The trust has had to get external validators in to check its waiting lists for accuracy and safety. The trust’s non-clinical priorities are to get on top of agency spend and recruitment/retention. It is also considering consolidating its recruitment efforts, moving to one central campaign rather than numerous, smaller ones. A staff retention strategy is due later this year.
During the pandemic, the trust delivered a very high number of covid studies and was a leader in vaccine development, running one of the biggest studies. This spring, UHS and Southampton University were jointly awarded more than £16m in funding from the National Institute for Health Research. The trust has recently put forward proposals for a new health research and innovation campus. Southampton is part of a national coalition of children’s hospitals, which led to a range of technology-driven innovations. It has an unusual model when it comes to the use of electronic patient records. Rather than using one EPR from a single supplier, it employs multiple different systems which are connected by an integration engine.

I use HSJ Intelligence every day to inform the strategic advice that I give to our managers, directors and the board. It has enabled us to connect the dots and grasp opportunities in places that we would have missed before.

The benefit of HSJi is all about bringing the data into one place. There are so many trusts and so many providers, and really understanding how the landscape is changing is so important for suppliers to understand their market. They can do so easily in one place with HSJ Intelligence.

I use HSJi to ensure I am up to date with current news about our prospect trusts and their senior personnel. The watchlist facility is useful in that it keeps me appraised of my current engagements and any news about them. This keeps me informed as to current issues and ensures that I am on message when engaging with senior execs with a trust.
