star this property answer text <p>Under the Care Act 2014, local authorities must promote wellbeing when carrying out any of their care and support functions in respect of a person. This is sometimes referred to as “the wellbeing principle” because it is a guiding principle that puts wellbeing at the heart of care and support. The definition of wellbeing includes physical and mental health and emotional wellbeing.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Assessments under the Care Act will identify the person’s needs and how these impact on their wellbeing. Care Plans must detail the needs to be met and how the needs will be met, and will link back to the outcomes that the adult wishes to achieve in day-to-day life as identified in the assessment process and to the wellbeing principle in the Act.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government has recognised the importance of doing more to consider the mental wellbeing of people in care homes and asked the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) to prioritise this area for one of its first Quality Standards for adult social care which were published in December 2013. The links to these standards can be found here:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ph16" target="_blank">http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ph16</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/qs50" target="_blank">http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/qs50</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><a href="http://pathways.nice.org.uk/pathways/mental-wellbeing-and-older-people" target="_blank">http://pathways.nice.org.uk/pathways/mental-wellbeing-and-older-people</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Health and Social Care Act 2008 Regulations 2014 sets out the fundamental standards of care people should expect. Regulation 9 – person centred care, makes clear that; “Providers must make every reasonable effort to provide opportunities to involve people in making decisions about their care and treatment, and support them to do this. This includes physical, psychological or emotional support, or support to get information in an accessible format or to understand the content.”</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The independent regulator, the Care Quality Commission when inspecting services to make sure they meet the fundamental standards of quality and safety, use NICE guidelines and quality standards as evidence to inform its inspection processes and to inform the award of good and outstanding ratings.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>A link to the 2008 regulations can be found here:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.cqc.org.uk/content/regulations-service-providers-and-managers" target="_blank">http://www.cqc.org.uk/content/regulations-service-providers-and-managers</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Programme, introduced in 2010, offers patients routine NICE approved talking therapies for the treatment of common mental health disorders including anxiety and depression. The programme aims to provide access to at least 15% of those who require treatment by March 2015 (data available July 2015). NHS England is leading work to ensure that older adults and other under-represented groups are encouraged to seek the help that they need.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

Whilst this data would not ordinarily be provided as part of a Parliamentary Question contribution, it has been included within this response as both Monitor and NHS Trust Development Authority have separately released data relating to temporary agency staff spend. It should be noted that their figures vary slightly from those included above. These figures may also be subject to revision as part of the 2014/15 final audited accounts production, and should therefore not be used once the final published Department of Health Annual Report and Accounts.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><sup>2</sup> For the first time, the Department collected unaudited financial data from NHS trusts for 2013/14 on Contract and Agency staffing costs and income to give a net expenditure figure. The data was collected on the NHS Summarisation Schedules that form the basis of the Department’s Annual Report and Accounts.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><sup>3 </sup>The 2012/13 figures included in the 2013/14 published accounts have been included in the same table; however they were compiled on a different basis to the 2013/14 figures. The figures published for 2012/13 for trusts are based on non-permanently employed staff which is defined as “others engaged on the objectives of the organisation and will include staff on inward secondment or loan from other organisations, bank/agency/temporary staff and contract staff.” This reconciles to the figures for those organisations in note 3 (Staff Costs 2012/13), whereas the 2013/14 figures were compiled for the first time under a stricter definition of contingent labour.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><sup>4</sup> http://www.midstaffspublicinquiry.com/</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>National Health Service spend on agency and contract staff for 2013/14 is £3.34 billion[1].</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Following the Francis[2] report many trusts increased their spend on temporary staffing to meet safe staffing levels. The Department expects trusts to have a strong grip on their finances, and manage their contract and agency staffing spend (including use of locums) responsibly through effective and efficient workforce planning and management and to minimise temporary staffing costs in future years.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p>The Government is clear that the current rate of spending is not supporting the best positive outcome for patients. The Secretary of State has announced a comprehensive package of measures to address the problem including:</p><p> </p><p>- setting a maximum hourly rate for doctors and nurses;</p><p> </p><p>- banning the use of agencies that are not approved;</p><p> </p><p>- putting a cap on total agency staff spending for each NHS trust in financial difficulty; and</p><p> </p><p>- requiring specific approval for any expensive consultancy contracts over £50,000.</p><p> </p><br /><p>[1] The 2014/15 figures reflect data collected from NHS trusts and foundation trusts as part of the Q4 data collection which is unpublished and unaudited. Whilst this data would not ordinarily be provided as part of a Parliamentary Question contribution, it has been included within this response as both Monitor and NHS Trust Development Authority have separately released data relating to temporary agency staff spend. It should be noted that their figures vary slightly from those included above. These figures may also be subject to revision as part of the 2014/15 final audited accounts production, and should therefore not be used once the final published Department of Health Annual Report and Accounts.</p><p> </p><p>[2] http://www.midstaffspublicinquiry.com/</p><p> </p><p> </p>
