Cabinet Decision: 15th June 2006
Title of Item/Report
Implementing the White Paper/Changes to the Service Development Partnership (SDP)
Record of the Decision
Consideration was given to proposed revised structures to address the Health & Social Care Adults agenda and the way forward in developing a Vision for Adults.

The introduction of the Adult Care Partnership provided a mechanism to address the strategic needs of Adults within Stockton. It aimed to be an outward facing structure that engaged with external partners to co-ordinate and plan services for Adults.

In parallel with the new Partnership structures, the existing Service Development Partnership (SDP) needed to be reshaped to link appropriately with the Council and PCT to address the White Paper Our Health, Our Care, Our Say and ensure that this national direction of travel was effectively shaped for the population of Stockton. The Adult Care Planning Group was the revised structure to support this agenda.

Details of the new roles and responsibilities were proposed and acknowledgement was given to how this would link with other parts of the agenda, such as children’s and health improvement.

The proposed terms of reference of the Partnership had taken into account the Children and Health Improvement structures and have attempted to mirror these elements whilst building upon the work of the Service Development Partnership.
RESOLVED that :-

1. A new Adult Care Partnership be developed to ensure the necessary focus for adults and older people in Stockton. This Partnership would be a strategic group involving a range of partners that will develop the vision for Adults.

2. Cabinet agree to the dissolution of the Service Development Partnership and the introduction of the Adult Care Planning Group as the new structure to support the delivery of the White Paper Our Health Our Care Our Say across Stockton Borough Council and North Tees PCT
