Birmingham’s Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy Stakeholder Engagement Meeting
On Wednesday 25th April a summit meeting took place on the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHWBS) consultation.
The event was open to all key stakeholders and commissioners within the city, they were asked to come together and share their expertise around three things:
- Birmingham’s Summary Joint Strategic Needs Assessment 2011/12
- Birmingham’s Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy
- Birmingham’s Health and Wellbeing Indicators
Speakers at the event included:
- Cllr. Sue Anderson, Shadow Health and Wellbeing Board Chair & Cabinet Member for Adults and Communities, Birmingham City Council
- Jim McManus, Joint Director of Public Health, Birmingham City Council/NHS
- Baldish Kaur, Public Health Consultant, Birmingham Public Health
- Alan Lotinga, Director of Health and Wellbeing, Birmingham City Council
Papers and Presentations:
If you are interested in the national progress with implementing Health and Wellbeing Boards then you might also be interested in the most recent report of the Kings Fund on national progress.
The report, System Leaders or Talking Shops?, makes clear that there is support for the creation of Health and Wellbeing Boards but a need for clarity on what they are going to achieve.
The report also states that the biggest challenge to Boards is:-
“whether they can deliver strong, credible and shared leadership across
local organisational boundaries. Unprecedented financial pressures, rising
demand, and complex organisational change will severely test their political
leadership. Board members need time and resources to develop their skills
and relationships with other stakeholders.”
The Birmingham Shadow Health and Wellbeing Board will be meeting for the final time of this municipal year on the 18th April at 2:30pm. The meeting will take place, as with previous meetings, in Committee Rooms 3 and 4 of Birmingham Council House.
As there are number of outstanding issues for the Board to consider the agenda will be quite full this month. This means that the amount of time that has been allocated to consider each item has been unfortunately cut down.
The papers for the Board are set out below:-
Agenda - April Board Meeting
Public Health Transition Update
PCT Cluster Arrangements to support direct commissioning
Birmingham City Council Provision of Public Health - Environment and Culture
Birmingham Oral Health Strategy
Castle Vale Community Budget Pilot
Minutes from the March meeting
In addition a number of reports are being sent to the Board for information only:-
Tackling the trade in illegal alcohol
Draft Tobacco Control Action Plan
Birmingham Health Partnership Compact
Birmingham Draft Alcohol Strategy
The meeting will be held in public and you would be more than welcome to attend.
The Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF) was first launched on 31 March 2011, following consultation on a broader, more transparent and outcome focused approach to presenting information on what adult social care has achieved.
The framework document [link fixed] published on March 30th 2012 has been updated for 2012-13. All proposals for outcome measures have been agreed between the Department of Health, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services and the Local Government Association. The document :
- describes the principles for the way in which the ASCOF should be used, and its relationship with local outcome measurement
- sets out the detail for each of the domains in the ASCOF, including the specific measures agreed for 2012-13
- outlies details the next steps for future development of the outcomes-based approach and improvements to the ASCOF over coming years
The accompanying handbook of definitions has also been updated and supersedes the November 2011 edition.
The Integrated Commissioning Board (ICB) brings together elected members, senior managers and non-executive directors from Birmingham’s three primary care trusts and the city council and is responsible for a Section 75 agreement under the NHS Act 2006. The Section 75 agreement brings together funding from the NHS and the city council for learning disability and mental health services for adults in Birmingham.
The Board directs the work of Birmingham’s Joint Commissioning Team and receives regular reports from the Joint Commissioning Team about the delivery and quality of learning disability and mental health services.
The Board will be holding its meetings in public bi-monthly.
Next meeting: Thursday 15th March 2012.
