To receive a report.
Sangeeta Leahy, Director of Public Health for Southwark Council, introduced the report and referenced the Health and Wellbeing Framework that was included in the papers, see pages 46 to 153 of the main Agenda pack.
Jin Lim, Deputy Director of Public Health and Tizzy Keller, Public Health Policy officer were then introduced to deliver a presentation, see Supplemental Agenda No.2. The following areas were covered:
i. Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2015 – 20
ii. Health Inequalities Framework
a. The approach
c. Data collection, equity monitoring and evaluation
d. Community engagement
iii. The Joint a Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHWS) renewal and refresh
iv. The JHWS refresh
a. Draft timeline for the strategy development
In response to the presentation, Jin Lim invited the Health and Wellbeing Board to provide their views and endorse the proposed course of action.
The following points were noted.
· Providing a robust range of consultative methods to engage with the residents and community groups needed to be included in the framework as it was not only central to being successful but equally represents accountability.
· Healthwatch needed to be involved and other community groups so this area of work was driven by the community for the community.
· Include other priorities like climate change and go further to build trust in the community.
· Engaging with other public sector partners like the London Transport Police and linking with national issues may also present beneficial impacts for the community i.e. sugar tax and ethical employment.
· Go further to work through data collection barriers that arise and include primary care providers in the list.
· The timing of refreshing the strategy was welcomed as there was a collective ambition to build back fairer for everyone and work on how to future proof budgets.
· Once the strategy was agreed, the information needed to be filtered and “drilled-down” to everyone that was involved in working towards the common aims and objectives. This would in turn establish tight connectivity throughout the journey to deliver on the strategy.
· There were opportunities to dovetail the strategy with the work of SLaM NHS Foundation Trust.
· The smoking ban would be a good case example.
The Chair thanked Sangeeta Leahy, Jin Lim and Tizzy Keller for their report and presentation and acknowledged the work around the Integrated Case System (ICS).
