Members considered a report that provided an update on Warm Homes Healthy People 7 (WHHP7).

It was noted that the WHHP7 had been funded through the Better Care Fund.

Members noted some of the outcomes:

• 287 households with 623 interventions delivered by a range of partners.

• 91 households with serviced and replaced heating systems this winter.

• The partnership with Stockton District Advice and Information Service (Stockton's CAB) to maximise income for vulnerable households had brought in 638,000 of previously unclaimed entitlement to the Borough, in the last 6 months.

• the collective saving for households, through tariff switching, was in excess of 191,000 per annum.

•13 households received temporary, emergency heating, and 17 households benefitted from a fire safety assessment.

•497 front line staff, from 32 referral agencies, were trained in the past 24 months to identify energy inefficiency, fuel poverty, health impacts of cold homes and to signpost people to support programmes.

The Commissioning Group considered a report that sought approval for the extension of the Specialist Stop Smoking contract.

It was explained that the current joint contract, between this Council and Hartlepool Borough Council, had one final extension option, up to 31 March 2020. The contract was held by North Tees and Hartlepool Foundation Trust.

It was noted that the Council's Public Health Service would like to take up the option of the final year contract extension from 01/04/2019 to 31/03/2020. The extension would provide further time for the development of three tier stop smoking support.

Members agreed that future services needed to 'be on the front foot', targeted, taking the support to the communities that need it the most.

Members noted that there were reducing numbers of people accessing local stop smoking services and it was explained that negotiations with the provider would look at potential reductions, in contract amounts, to reflect this.

25/18
The Commissioning Group considered a report that provided an overview of the discussions that had taken place at the 6th July 2018 Better Care Fund (BCF) Delivery Group meeting.

Issues considered at the Delivery Group meeting, included:

- the Council's internal welfare review.
- the dementia work stream, including the high
level of diagnosis.
- the internal review of Rosedale Centre
- the Trusted Assessor model for Care Homes.
- the Community Integrated Intermediate Care
Project.

Members agreed that the dementia diagnosis rate should be publicised more, as it was exceptional, at a national level, and was an indication that plans and processes were working.
AHW
26/18
It was noted that the Physical Activity Peer Review was scheduled to take place on 25th September, which clashed with the September meeting of the Commissioning Group. It was agreed that the Group's meeting be rearranged.

A Stop Smoking update would be presented to the March 2019 meeting.
