RD&E Statement on NHS England Succcess Regime announcement


The Royal Devon & Exeter NHS foundation Trust (RD&E) today welcomed the announcement made by NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens that the NEW  Devon CCG health and social care economy will be one of three health economies that will participate in the NHS Five Year Forward View “Success Regime” programme.

Angela Pedder, RD&E Chief Executive said: “Health and care services within the NEW Devon  system face an unprecedented challenge to sustainably meet the increasing demands placed on our services within a restrained financial context.

“We have recognised that the RD&E needs to change to deliver care to people in an integrated way making best use of the valuable but limited resources we have. However, the changes required to achieve a new model of care that is fit for the future is not possible by working alone. A more coordinated and managed approach is required and the Success Regime announced today is clearly designed to help support the programme of work that is required.

“The quality of care provided within the NEW Devon economy is high and this is a strong base to build on, but we are increasingly challenged financially and operationally. This programme will help the national bodies to work in support of the local organisations involved to understand the fundamental drivers of demand and the associated costs and to identify why NEW Devon is a challenged community. Diagnosing the underlying causes will be an essential first part of the programme of work and will inform what then needs to change to protect and promote health and care services for the population we all serve.

“The new models of care set out in the Five Year Forward View create an exciting vision of what the future of health and social care could look like. We look forward to being part of a transformed health and social care system and to build on our tradition and history of delivering great care.

“In the meantime, I would like to reassure people in Devon that the RD&E continues to provide safe and high quality care services delivered with courtesy and respect.”
