The current category is General Resources

Clinical Effectiveness(CESEL)

Clinical Effectiveness South East London (CESEL) provide a systematic evidence-based approach to quality improvement across south east London general practice, to help to improve health outcomes and reduce variation and inequalities for our local population.

As a collaborative endeavour across CCG and PCNs clinical effectiveness will also enhance a population health capability, ensuring front line staff have the tools and resources to provide best-practice care.

The programme is building on established improvement models and capacity, recognising the importance of local knowledge and existing relationships, and supporting the development of local clinical leadership capacity and capability.

This short film describes how CESEL can support your practice.

Ardens Manager Trial

Facilitated by the Digital First Team, Clinical Effectiveness South East London (CESEL) are participating in the latest beta trial of Ardens Manager. This is in addition to the functionality already offered by Ardens Pro which launched across SEL earlier this year. The Ardens Manager trial includes access to all National Contract dashboards free of charge until the end of April 2022. It also includes participation in the automatic upload beta trial for Ardens Manager, further information on this will be disclosed at a later date. We hope that these dashboards will enable both your practice and PCN to visualise, track and prioritise your service and contract activity.

Prior to automatic uploads onto Ardens Manager, Ardens will be uploading practices data onto Ardens Manager via your Enterprise Search and Report unit to various areas on a monthly basis. This means that you do not have the administrative burden of manually uploading data yourselves if you do not wish to. If you wish to have more up-to-date data than monthly, you are still able to manually upload data onto the dashboards by following Ardens support articles.

Practices will be contacted by Ardens directly with the next steps regarding practice-level signup to Ardens Manager and data sharing with CESEL. CESEL is a local, clinically led programme offering practices and PCNs support through tools and education and is funded jointly by SEL PCNS and SELCCG. CESEL use of Ardens Manager will support quality improvement work and is NOT for performance management. CESEL will not access patient identifiable data, only aggregate data for learning and support. Practice level data will NOT be shared with commissioners.
