Unplanned Admissions enhanced service National Specification 15/16

Summary of key Changes for 15/16

Unplanned Admissions Specification with reporting template Word Version

Following a number of queries about how often the care plan for the Avoiding Unplanned Admissions (AUA) enhanced service needs to be reviewed, NHS Employers has published the following FAQ:

How often does a care plan need to be reviewed for patients remaining on the AUA register from previous years?

Practices are expected to review a patients care plan at least once during 15/16. The service specification requires that a review is carried out within 12 months of the creation or last review of the care plan and the  Business Rules are structured to look back 12 months, therefore the data collection at the end of September 2015 looked back to 1 October 2014 and for the March 2016 collection it will look back to 1 April 2015.

Practices should review care plans more often if appropriate to the patients, but care plans must be reviewed at least once in a rolling 12 month period in order to meet the criteria for payment.

All the AUA FAQs are available in the Enhanced Services FAQs section of NHS Employers’ website: http://www.nhsemployers.org/your-workforce/primary-care-contacts/general-medical-services/faqs-and-queries/es-faqs
