From Robert Ball

2.    Can ISC leads confirm that commercial providers will be excluded from these provider collaboratives?

 

From Jean Burbridge

1.    At the least meeting ICS leads were asked “How will the Integrated Care Board improve the current reduced accountability and transparency?” but this was not answered. Are the ICS leads now able to answer this question?

2.    In the last meeting David Sissling stated that the local NHS is currently making no use of private companies to assist it in moving towards an ICS. Please could you clarify whether any companies have been used in recent years to assist in the transition to an ICS and, is so, which they were.

 

From Giuliana Foster

1.    Has a decision been made by the Treasury or Department of Health regarding the funding of the UHL reconfiguration scheme. If so, what is the decision? If not, when is this decision expected?

2.    University Hospitals of Leicester judges that a) some of the information in the templates returned to the National Hospital Programme team setting out alternative versions of the Building Better Hospitals for the Future Scheme was commercially sensitive and b) that it is not in the interest of the public to have this information. What type of information was provided in the templates returned to the National Hospital Programme team which was considered commercially sensitive?

 

These questions will be considered in accordance with Rule 10 of the Scrutiny Procedure rules of the Council’s Constitution.

MEMBER QUESTIONS (ON MATTERS NOT COVERED ELSEWHERE ON THE AGENDA)

Councillor Samantha Harvey submits the following question:

 

Following a negative patient experience at LRI last month, and the difficulty faced trying to navigate the LRI site, can our UHL colleagues comment on the following:

 

-          Why does the website contain incorrect information that is years out-of-date? The receptionist, at the incorrect location, explained the web site information has been incorrect for ages and the correct location was at the other end of the campus.

-          Why is the website so difficult to navigate and makes it almost impossible to find any useful patient information?

-          Why is the signposting to campus so very poor? Circling the site, in search of the correct entrance is not good for a calm state of mind or for patient wellbeing.

-          Internal signage is poor and there was no sight of the usual cheery volunteers or porters to point or lead the way.

-          Why are there no maps of the campus and car parks available on-line?
