Minutes:

Further to Minute No.34 of the meeting held on 13 March, 2019, the Board considered the report of the Head of Communities, that provided an update on the progress made towards the establishment of a Sefton Early Help Strategy. The report also requested the board to note the final version of the strategy prior to sign off from the Early Help Strategic Partnership Group.

 

The Strategy aimed to ensure Sefton was a good place for Children and Young People to live and grow up, receive immunisations, have access to a wide range of physical activity opportunities and enjoy overall improving health.

 

The report further explained the purpose of the Early Help Partnership Group was to ensure that people of all ages receive timely, well-co-ordinated and good quality early help services.  It would provide oversight and secure evidence that people receiving early help were safeguarded and that early help was delivering positive outcomes.

 

The Strategy would work alongside the Children and Young Peoples’ Plan and Health and Wellbeing Strategy. The Strategy would be effective immediately. The strategy had been through an extensive process of development and co-production. The Partnership Group were confident of the quality of the document and the positive impact it would help to bring about for our Children, Young People and Families.

Reducing Parental Conflict in Sefton pdf icon PDF 86 KB

Report of the Head of Communities

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Board considered the report of the Head of Communities which provided  information on the national initiative to address and reduce parental conflict, led by Department of Work and Pensions and to update them on Sefton’s progress.

 

The report explained that Parental conflict could harm children’s outcomes, regardless of whether parents were together or separated, or were biologically related to the child, such as in blended or foster families. Exposure to destructive parental conflict was associated with a range of problems for children and young people. This could include poorer academic outcomes, negative peer relationships, substance misuse, poor future relationship chances, low employability and heightened interpersonal violence. It was also associated with mental health difficulties such as anxiety and depression, conduct disorder, poor attachment, risk-taking behaviours and even suicidality.

 

The Reducing Parental Conflict Programme had been designed, developed and delivered as a multiagency approach locally. A range of partners were involved to ensure parental conflict was consistently understood and responded to across Sefton.  A timetable of events had been planned and delivered which included consultation and engagement with local agencies and action plan development. Multi agency awareness raising workshops and training for frontline professionals would take place  during Autumn 2019.

 

RESOLVED:

 

The report be noted.

Presentation by Maureen Kelly

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Board received a presentation from Maureen Kelly, Chair of Health Watch Sefton on the Health Watch Annual Report 2018/19.

 

Mrs.Kelly explained that Health Watch was the independent champion for people using local health and social care services; that it listened to what people liked about services and what could be improved; that it shared its their views with those with the power to make change happen; and that people could also speak to Health Watch to find information about health and social care services available locally.

 

The report provided some of the year’s highlights:

·       1311 people shared their health and social care story  by leaving feedback on the Health Watch Feedback Centre

·       33 local people gave up their time to volunteer  and support Health Watch’s work

·       Through the signposting service, Health Watch had helped 496 people find the support and information they needed

·       Health Watch completed 17 reports which included Enter and View visits, hospital listening events and feedback reports on GP access

·       4 newsletters were published which reached 278 stakeholders, 453 members with email plus those via engagement and social media

·       Health Watch gained 109 new followers on Twitter and shared 122 posts with 231 people who liked its Facebook page

 

The report concluded by stating that the next 12 months would be both exciting and challenging as Health Watch ensured local people were kept up-to-date and engaged in both the local and national plans which would shape the NHS over the next 10 years. Health Watch had started work engaging local people on what worked well and what needed to be developed and would ensure the voices of Sefton residents were listened to by decision makers working on the Sefton five-year PLACE plan, ‘Reshaping Sefton’.

 

RESOLVED: That

 

(1)       Maureen Kelly, Chair of Health Watch Sefton, be thanked for her presentation; and

(2)       the Director of Public Health and the Director of Adult Social Care be requested to draft a response on behalf of the Board, which will be circulated prior to dissemination.

Report of Cameron Ward, Programme Director, Sefton Health and Social Care Transformation Programme

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Board received a briefing note from Cameron Ward, Programme Director, Sefton Health and Social Care Transformation Programme. The note explained that as part of the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP), published in January 2019, all systems were asked to produce a five- year plan.  This was being developed for Sefton as part of the Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership.

 

The overarching position for Sefton working in a collaborative based system was set within the need to develop a sustainable health and care system; improving wellbeing and health; and there was a reduction in health inequalities.  The Plan was expected to deliver the requirements of the NHS LTP.

 

The plan was draft and was subject to ongoing engagement for feedback and comment prior to concluding the document in November 2019.

 

The paper included the approach and content of the plan and sought feedback.  A final version of the plan would be prepared for the November 2019 Governing Body meeting.

 

RESOLVED: That

 

(1)           the information and the progress on the development of the Five-Year Place Plan and the fact that the final version of the plan would be received at the December meeting be noted; and

(2)           a formal written response would be sent from the Health and Wellbeing Board

Report of the Director of Public Health

Minutes:

The Board considered the report of the Director of Public Health which advised of the development of a new Sefton Health and Wellbeing Strategy (HWS) for 2020-2025, and aimed to:

 

·       Describe the relevant policy context and implications for strategy development

 

·       Provide a progress update on engagement to date on the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) priorities, and plans for the second phase of engagement

 

·       Present an outline and rationale for the proposed structure and content of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy and implementation plan; highlighting underlying assumptions and principles

 

·       Support discussion amongst Health and Wellbeing Board Members to begin formulating the central ambitions for better and more equal health and wellbeing in Sefton
