OSCAR Update

RSS Review Q3 2018/19

An options appraisal process has been carried out looking at any alternative options to further improve referral processes, support clinical decision making and improve the quality of patient care and patient experience, reflecting the following principles:

  • Supported by clinicians locally;
  • Demonstrable Value for Money;
  • Interoperability with existing systems wherever possible;
  • Sustainable solution(s) that can be responsive to changing needs; and
  • Effective implementation and on-going support.

As an outcome of this option appraisal both North Kirklees and Wakefield CCGs have agreed that the 4 elements of the current RSS model are not sustainable and that a more cost effective model should be taken forward.

As A result, this OSCAR Website will remain active for the time being, however, none of the content will be updated.

Disclaimer: The majority of the content is now out of date and should be used with caution.
