The 'NHS long term plan' was published in January 2019 and sets out the implementation and intended outcomes of services to be delivered by 2023/24, via a long-term revenue settlement from the government. The NHS long term plan committed to an increase in spending of £4.5 billion in real terms on primary medical and community health services by 2023/24. At the end of January 2020, NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) published the 'NHS operational planning and contracting guidance 2020/21', which will help to take the 'NHS long term plan' into its second year. This briefing summarises the elements of this guidance which are of most relevance to local pharmaceutical committee officers and members and the community pharmacy sector.

NHS planning guidance is rightly ambitious, but presents big challenges
31 January 2020
- NHS England and NHS Improvement have published the NHS operational planning and contracting guidance 2020/21.
- It stated that hospitals must reduce bed occupancy to below 92%, improve A&E performance against benchmarks, and reduce waiting lists.
- Half of centrally held financial support available to providers will be tied to the performance of their wider system, in new rules which will apply to the “financial recovery fund”.
- The NHS failed to spend over 70% of the £200m NHS apprenticeship levy.
- The target for 50,000 more nurses set by the government will be supported through a significant expansion of ethical international recruitment, driven by a new programme which will be established early in 2020.
- NHSX are in talks with health systems and providers to determine whether there is a “minimum and optimal” level of technology spending, based on how digitally advanced a trust is, and trusts will be expected to “begin introducing” video consultations in major outpatient services.
- Commissioners must carry out regular visits to patients with learning disabilities or autism who are sent to out of area hospitals, with children visited every six weeks and adults every eight weeks.
- It confirms the people plan will be published in March/April 2020.
Responding to the NHS operational planning and contracting guidance 2020/21, the chief executive of NHS Providers, Chris Hopson said: “ The planning guidance issued today provides more important detail about how the NHS will deliver the long term plan and make the required transition to integrated care, system working and a broader range of priorities than the old set of narrow acute hospital waiting time targets, important though these are. “ It’s right that the NHS is ambitious for patients. But we also need to recognise the context. This winter we have seen performance fall to the lowest levels recorded while the waiting list for routine surgery grows. There are over 105,000 vacancies in trusts alone, and each year we are seeing demand and the need for more complex care grow. And whilst we welcome the extra NHS funding the government has committed, this comes after the longest and deepest financial squeeze in NHS history and does not reflect a return to the long term trend: it’s no bonanza. In this context, improving waiting list performance, recovering financial deficits, starting to deliver the new priorities in the long term plan and the people plan, and taking the next steps in transforming the NHS is, collectively, a very big ask.
In this context, improving waiting list performance, recovering financial deficits, starting to deliver the new priorities in the long term plan and the people plan, and taking the next steps in transforming the NHS is, collectively, a very big ask.
“ We particularly welcome the emphasis on prevention and wellbeing and health inequalities within this guidance and the recognition that mental health, community and ambulance services all have a vital role to play in providing great care to patients, alongside acute hospitals. “ While this guidance will enable trusts to plan for 2020/21,we still need to see the detail of the final people plan, the long term plan implementation plan, the results of the clinical review of standards, and the new NHS England and Improvement operating model and oversight framework. We also need a full multi year capital settlement and multi year education, training and public health revenue budgets. These will all follow over the next few months. Taken together, we will then have the complete new strategic framework the NHS frontline needs to underpin the long term plan.

“ Workforce challenges remain a top priority for trusts. We welcome the ambition to increase nursing numbers but the NHS will also need to be properly supported to deliver the other key commitments in the people plan – making the NHS a great place to work, investing in leadership and training and enabling the NHS workforce to take full advantage of technology. “ Trusts will welcome changes to the financial system intended to support the provider sector to reduce its overall deficit. But we need to recognise that these are stretching targets. It is becoming clear the 20/21 starting point will be worse than envisaged even a few months ago, and that there are still a small number of trusts who are concerned they are being asked to deliver the impossible. We must avoid pressurising providers to sign up to unrealistic targets, or we risk revisiting the problems we had with the previous financial framework.”

Project Roomkey/Housing and Homelessness COVID Response
Project Roomkey was established in March 2020 as part of the state response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of Project Roomkey and Rehousing Strategy was to provide non-congregate shelter options, such as hotels and motels, for people experiencing homelessness, to protect human life, and to minimize strain on health care system capacity.
As the response to the pandemic evolved, so did Project Roomkey. In November 2020, a new phase of Project Roomkey began, called Project Roomkey and Rehousing Strategy. This new phase of the program built on existing emergency shelter efforts while also supporting permanent transitions to safe and stable housing to ensure homelessness is non-recurring.
Project Roomkey and Rehousing Strategy gives people who are experiencing homelessness and recovering from COVID-19, or have been exposed to COVID-19, a place to recuperate and properly quarantine outside of a hospital. It also provides a safe place for isolation for people who are experiencing homelessness and at high risk for medical complications should they to become infected.
Project Roomkey and Rehousing Strategy is designed to quickly provide dedicated resources to ensure Project Roomkey units remain online through the continued public health emergency and that homelessness is non-recurring. Project Roomkey units are intended to be temporary, emergency shelter options, while the Rehousing Strategy is to ensure no Project Roomkey occupant is forced to exit into unsheltered homelessness by developing and implementing plans to transition individuals from Project Roomkey sites into permanent housing.
Building on the success of Project Roomkey and Rehousing Strategy, the Homekey grant program , which is administered by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), created additional opportunities for agencies to acquire hotels, motels, apartments, and other buildings to provide long-term homes for people experiencing, or at risk of homelessness. Homekey converts commercial properties and other existing buildings to permanent or interim housing, including but not limited to, hotels, motels, hostels, single-family homes and multifamily apartments, adult residential facilities, and manufactured homes.
CDSS recommends prioritizing this resource in a manner consistent with state and federal public health guidance, and FEMA Reimbursement Eligibility Criteria , for people experiencing homelessness which includes people who have tested positive for COVID 19, have been exposed to COVID 19, or are “high risk” of health complications.

NOTICE: Removal of Cal/OSHA Interim Guidance on COVID-19 for Health Care Facilities: Severe Respirator Supply Shortages
The supply and availability of NIOSH-approved respirators, including N95s, has increased significantly over the last several months. As a result, Cal/OSHA has removed the Cal/OSHA Interim Guidance on COVID-19 for Health Care Facilities: Severe Respirator Supply Shortages that allowed certain strategies to extend supplies of respirators during severe shortages.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also recommends health care personnel and facilities transition away from respirator crisis capacity conservation strategies, such as decontamination of disposable respirators. Pursuant to title 8 sections 5144 and 5199, healthcare facilities are to use respirators in full accordance with their manufacturers' instructions and their NIOSH approval.
Cal/OSHA maintains a partial list of N95 vendors who state they have large supplies on-hand.
Also available is the NIOSH Certified Equipment List that identifies all NIOSH approved respirators and approval holders.
Workplace safety and health regulations in California require employers to take steps to protect workers potentially exposed to infectious diseases like COVID-19. Cal/OSHA has posted guidance to help employers comply with these requirements and to provide workers information on how to protect themselves and prevent the spread of the disease.
Cal/OSHA recommends employers review the guidance, educational materials and model programs and plans provided by Cal/OSHA, along with an employer's existing procedures, to ensure that workers are protected.
Note: These guidelines and materials are subject to change as information is received and the situation evolves. Cal/OSHA has archived outdated guidance for historical reference.
Statewide Resources on Safely Reopening California, Continuing Safety Measures, and County Risk Level Maps as of June 15, 2021
Cal/OSHA and other state agencies have developed guidance on the steps some businesses should take to reduce the risk of COVID-19 at work. Cal/OSHA recommends employers review the guidance relevant to their worksites, local information guidance criteria, along with the guidance on Cal/OSHA requirements below, and their existing safety procedures to ensure the workplace is protected from the spread of COVID-19.
