        CARE QUALITY COMMISSION REVIEW OF HEALTH SERVICES FOR CHILDREN
                  LOOKED-AFTER AND SAFEGUARDING IN BROMLEY

SUMMARY:
On Monday 16th - 20th October 2017 the Care Quality Commission (CQC) undertook a full Safeguarding
and Children Looked-after Review of Bromley health services. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has a
legal requirement to make sure that health and social care services provide people with safe, effective,
compassionate and high-quality care. A rolling programme of reviews is undertaken to fulfil this role.

The week started with a strategic Bromley overview for the lead inspector Liz Fox and her team, staff from
across the health system and the London Borough of Bromley Children’s Services, including Public
Health. The CQC also reviews health services commissioned by Public Health as these services have a
significant role in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people e.g. school
nurses, health visitors and contraceptive services (Section 48 of the Health and Social Care Act, 2008). In
addition, ‘Change Grow Lives,’ the Drug and Alcohol Service for Children and adults commissioned by
Public Health was also reviewed, similarly due to the significant risks drug and alcohol issues can impact
on families. The organisations visited are listed in Appendix 1.

Broadly, the review found that across the health economy they found committed professionals and staff
with good examples of partnership working and innovative working where staff improved outcomes
through service development. The report also identified areas that needed continued development such
as improving information sharing and information technology across services so that vulnerable children
are highly visible within the health system and can be safeguarded.

BACKGROUND:

The central purpose of this inspection was to undertake a targeted review of how well local health
services – whether commissioned by Bromley Clinical Commissioning (BCCG), NHS England or London
Borough of Bromley (LBB) - identify, help, protect and provide child-centred care, whilst ensuring that
children’s health needs are effectively met. Inspectors evaluated the quality and impact of local health
arrangements for safeguarding children and improving health outcomes for children who are looked after.
This included mapping the child’s journey at all stages – from pre- birth through to their transition to
adulthood, and from the point of their entering to leaving care.
Inspectors visited services, spoke with children and their families, staff, clinicians and safeguarding leads
as they evaluated safeguarding practice, service provision and governance arrangements whilst tracking
a child or young person’s journey through services. They also observed how IT systems worked. The
inspection framework is based on the following key lines of enquiry:

       Clinical Chair: Dr Andrew Parson               1                      Chief Officer: Dr Angela Bhan
   The experiences and views of children and their families.
      The quality and effectiveness of safeguarding arrangements in health services
      The quality of health services and outcomes for children who are looked after and care leavers.
      Health leadership and assurance of local safeguarding and looked after children arrangements
       including.

Nine cases were selected by provider organisations (three from each) (Midwifery, Health Visiting and
Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHs) that met the criteria provided and each case had to
include multi-disciplinary involvement and had to have been referred to the Multiagency Safeguarding Hub
(MASH); chronologies were created for each case. In total the inspectors reviewed 90 case records. Any
issues identified during the inspection were shared during the morning ‘Keeping in Touch’ (KIT) meetings
between the lead inspector and Head/Designated Nurse Safeguarding Children (SGC). These issues
were shared with providers who responded immediately by troubleshooting, providing risk assessments
and trajectories.

KEY THEMES:

Examples of ‘What People Told Us’

      Parents spoke very positively about the care received. “We felt cared for …the staff go above and
       beyond”. They described how the midwives had explained risk and benefits to help them make
       decisions.
      “CAMHS have done a significant piece of work with her and it has taken over a year for them to get
       her to a place where she is ready for the service to be effective.”
      Bromley Changes received a referral from children’s social care in relation to a young person’s
       alcohol use and binge drinking. The young person was autistic so the worker looked at the best
       way to adapt the sessions to meet the young person needs, such as delivering very short focused
       sessions. There has been a very positive outcome for this young person with greatly reduced binge
       drinking. The worker is now supporting the young person as they prepare to apply for a job.
      Although there were no direct quotes from children and young people, inspectors scanned records
       and identified best practice which led to improved health outcomes for some of the most vulnerable
       children and young people.

Across the health system they found committed professionals and staff with good examples of partnership
working and innovative working where staff improved outcomes through service development. The areas
reviewed included:

      Early Help
      Child in Need
      Child Protection
      Looked-after Children
      Leadership and Management
      Governance
      Training and supervision

       Clinical Chair: Dr Andrew Parson             2                     Chief Officer: Dr Angela Bhan
Summary of key themes:

      Assessments
     Children and young people benefit from timely assessments of their clinical needs when attending
      urgent or emergency care at Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH).
     Bromley Healthcare provides a comprehensive and flexible service which includes a Young Person
      Clinic (under 25yrs).
     Perinatal Mental Health Service was well developed with a rigorous removal-in process and risk
      assessment.
     Midwifery services – safeguarding leadership strong, good links to specialist midwives (Mental
      Health, Drug and Alcohol); women seen alone for domestic abuse mandatory questions (though
      need to ask more than once).
     Bromley Changes is working successfully with primary care; schools and ED at PRUH to ensure
      the service supports professionals and have strengthened referral pathways are in place to help
      ensure effective early and robust assessments.
     Assessments of a child’s home environment and their safety by health visitors are not always
      robust. This was reflected in case records seen and included a lack of chronologies or genograms.
     Inspectors were not assured the health needs of electively home educated children were being
      effectively overseen and met.
     Children presenting to the PRUH in severe mental health crises often wait too long for a CAMHs
      assessment and subsequent discharge or transfer to a specialist setting.

      Admin and IT processes
     The identification of vulnerable CYP at the Urgent Care Centre (UCC) and Emergency Department
      (ED) is not robust. Currently the IT systems for these services at the PRUH do not communicate
      with each other. A paper-based system is in place between the two services.
     Lack of shared IT between midwives and adult mental health services
     Recruitment and resources - a longstanding vacancy for a Bromley HealthCare liaison health visitor
      has limited information sharing between PRUH and health visitors about children’s attendances.

      Leadership, management and governance
     Good commitment by CCG to working with the local authority to improve outcomes for children and
      young people.
     BCCG designated professionals offer strong leadership within the organisation and robust
      governance oversight across the health economy. Their profile is high with senior partner agencies.
     development of the GP Services Safeguarding Children Local Enhanced Services template and the
      Health Economy Safeguarding/Children Looked-after dataset led by the Designated Nurse
      Safeguarding Children.
     Named nurse and specialist midwives at the PRUH lead on promoting good safeguarding practice
      and have well developed multiagency working relationships.
     The safeguarding lead practitioners within both the adult and young people’s substance misuse
      services provide robust oversight of each service.
     The changes in commissioning arrangements for the five to-19 year service has reduced the
      opportunity for the sexual health advisors to refer young people to a ‘school nurse’ for more
      universal focused health advice or ongoing support within the school setting. It is too early to say if
      this will have any longer term impact on the interdisciplinary working and supporting young people
      with their health needs.

      Clinical Chair: Dr Andrew Parson                3                      Chief Officer: Dr Angela Bhan
   The Bromley Healthcare Children Looked-after Team is well led. Initial Health Assessments are not
       always completed within statutory timescales. Review Health Assessments were seen to be
       particularly strong.

Training and supervision
    Most provider organisations, (with the exception of King’s College NHS Trust) evidenced their
      workforce were appropriately trained in safeguarding. The oversight of exceptions takes place
      within the BCCG Safeguarding Executive Group.
    Further clarity and evidence needed to provide assurance that midwives and other clinical staff
      comply with statutory guidance on number of hours multi-disciplinary and interagency training
      required three yearly.

A number of recommendations were made and Bromley CCG and health providers are already making
improvements in many of these areas.

Next steps

A combined Health System SMARTER Action Plan and separate Public Health Action Plan were collated
and shared with the CQC and signed off on by the CQC on the 12th March 2018. The CQC governance
and quality assurance of the action plan will be overseen by the local area team going forward. Our efforts
are now focused on delivering these recommended improvements.

Governance

The combined Health Action Plan will be overseen and monitored via the following governance
arrangements:

Recommendation 6.1 Children in Need
Practitioners records clearly reflect how the home environment is impacting on the wellbeing of the child, quality assurance of this should form part of
supervision practice.
‘Assessments of a child’s home environment and their safety carried out by health visitors are not always robust. Case records seen demonstrated that
practitioners concerns did not always articulate strongly enough the impact of the home environment on the child or reflect the child’s voice. Recording of the
information can assist the practitioner to identify emerging or existing signs of neglect’.

Recommendation 6.2
The use of chronologies and genograms is routine within the health visiting
‘Bromley health visitors do not routinely use chronologies or genograms to support their safeguarding activity. In Oxleas, there is not a consistent approach
across commissioned health visiting services. Management accept routine use of chronologies is an area for development in health visitor services in order to
ensure effective risk assessment and oversight of a child’s vulnerability’.

Recommendation 6.6
Record keeping and IT systems across Bromley health economy support effective information sharing; appropriate flagging / alerts; access to safeguarding
records and multi-agency plans so vulnerable children are highly visible and can be safeguarded
‘We heard of a number of IT system incompatibility across Bromley. It is recognised through serious case reviews this can lead to barriers in timely sharing or
access to information. Practitioners who need to work together do not have access to the each other’s client record. Examples include urgent care/PRHU,
BHC/Oxleas (MASH). KCFT/Oxleas (perinatal mental health). We also identified inaccuracies in the flagging systems in a number of services, which reduces
practitioner’s abilities to work in partnership with statutory agencies in the care of the child. The CCG and provider organisation recognise the challenges and
some work has taken place to mitigate risk’.
