Healthcare in Milton Keynes
NPMC is proud to tell you about the role two of our GP Partners are playing in designing and managing healthcare across the city. They are doing this through their positions as elected board members on Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). To enable them to do this important work, Dr Shalin Parikh, who has worked with us for a few years, will see our patients on a Tuesday and Thursday every week.
How does Milton Keynes CCG commission services?
They do this through commissioning changes to local health services by working through programme boards charged to:
- Maintain and improve quality
- Keep tight financial control
- Deliver on the quality & productivity challenge
- Give momentum for transition and reform
Dr Tayo Kufeji is the elected board member for Maternity and Children's services. The plans for this area are based on the principles of delivering quality services that provide demonstrable value for money. The focus will be on procuring services against outcome measures and benchmarking services with best practice in comparable areas. The care pathways designed will reflect the intent to avoid admission to hospital and to provide support and advice to allow children to be cared for in the community, or close to home; advocating care that reduces interventions where appropriate, such as normalising birth and reducing unnecessary paediatric admissions. There is a focus on prevention and providing universal, accessible services with targeted care appropriate to the needs of the individual
