System Transformation Project

Fit for Future logoThe Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Health System Transformation Team has been formed as a cross-system team to look at how the significant challenges Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’s health economy faces can be addressed.

The system’s key challenges have been identified as follows:

  • The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough health system is not financially sustainable and if nothing is done, it will face a financial gap of at least £250m by 2018/19
  • The population of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough is increasing and there will be a greater proportion of older people in 5 years’ time
  • Demand for mental health services continues to increase
  • There are significant levels of deprivation and inequality that need to be addressed
  • People are living longer and health outcomes are generally good but there are significant differences in people’s health across our system
  • Our health system has multiple stakeholders.

The programme team is being hosted by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group but is a cross-system programme involving:

  • Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Hinchingbrooke Health Care Trust
  • Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust
  • Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust
  • Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

The work of the team focusses on the following areas, with ‘prevention’ incorporated into the work of all of the workstreams.

  • System Design (incorporating elective and non-elective care)
  • Children and maternity
  • Mental health
  • Older people and vulnerable adults
  • Primary care

There are four phases to the System Transformation Programme:

  • Agree Framework and Baseline
  • Design and Propose
  • Change and Construct
  • Implementation 2017-18, 2018-19

Partners are currently in the ‘Design and Propose’ phase where through engagement with stakeholders we are developing ideas only about what could change; which will be followed by a period of engagement with stakeholders and the public.
