    The chair invited council officers and NHS staff  to update the Committee by running through the presentation provided in advance.


    The following people contributed to section one and two of the presentation; recapping on the previous meetings, providing a progress report on the formal consultation and taking questions:


    • David Bradley, Chief Executive , South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM)
    • Jane Bowie - Director of Integrated Commissioning, Lambeth Council
    • John Lavelle - lead mental health Lambeth Council/ SlaM
    • Fiona Connolly, Executive Director Adults and Health, Lambeth Council
    • David Orekoya, Assistant Director, Integrated Commissioning: Mental Health, Lambeth Council
    • Jane Bowie, Director, Integrated Commissioning (with CCG)
    •  Andrew Eyers, Strategic Director of Integrated Health and Social Care (with CCG)


    The chair then invited Lambeth and Southwark Healthwatch to input.


    Catherine Pearson, Lambeth Healthwatch reported that people on various wards had been spoken with and were unanimously in agreement with the proposed changes, however the following issues had been raised: 


    • Green space and outside space; could better access be provided to balconies and to Ruskin Park.
    • Could there be a reconfigurations of bus services to allow  better connectivity to Brixton and  Bethlem Royal Hospital. 
    • People want service change to focus not just on the building, but also service design. Can patients  also be involved in the service development.


    SLaM and CCG officers responded that there are plans to improved access to green space and Ruskin Park. There is a planning requirement to improve the route access and pathways to green space in the Maudsley as a condition of the permission granted to redevelop the site. Consideration is also being given to improving the present bus access between the Maudsley and Bethlem Royal Hospital. There is support for input into service delivery. 



    Catherine Negus, Southwark Healthwatch referred to the paper submitted in advance to the JHOSC and commented that Southwark had not been as involved in the reconfiguration as the proposals  principally relate to Lambeth beds, although there will be some impact on Southwark  She requested clarity on how much Southwark  residents had been consulted. She also asked about the age range of people consulted, particularly as a digital consultation can be orientated to younger people, although she is pleased about Blackfriars Settlement consultation.


    SlaM and CCG officers said that the age spread was quite well distributed and drew attention to slide 16 in the presentation which showed the percentages of respondents across the borough, with preponderance around Lambeth Hospital. Facebook ads and focus groups had taken place in both boroughs. The majority of patients are from Lambeth, so the spread of respondents reflects differential impact across both boroughs.



    The chair then invited members to ask questions and the following points were made in response:


    ·  Stakeholders in bold in slide 11 are those groups that have been significantly engaged in the process.


    ·  A piece of work is being done with the Living Well Community Centre to improve  access to pharmacies to address concerns about access to medication. Staff said that they want the focus  ...  view the full minutes text for item 8.
