Members received a report that had previously been considered by the Health and Wellbeing Board, relating to Area Inspections and on-going development work associated with SEND.

Members noted that a permanent Designated Medical Officer had been appointed, however, detail around the DMO's operational role were still being finalised.

There had been a great deal of work undertaken around Joint Commissioning. It was suggested that, in terms of Speech and Language Therapy there may be potential to look at Joint Commissioning across the CCG footprint.

It was noted that a the Council's Children and Young People's Select Committee would be undertaking a scrutiny review of an element of SEND, focusing on preparing for adulthood, post 16, further education, moving into employment etc, as this was an area where more developmental work was needed.

Members were informed that the CCG would be sharing EHC Plans with TEWV and North Tees Foundation Trust Hospital, so that they could identify which children, with SEND, were accessing their services.

Reference was made to a 3P event that had been arranged to mainly consider concerns relating to the diagnosis and timescales relating to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The event was broader than diagnosis and provided an opportunity for an intensive piece of work to rethink the whole pathway, including joint commissioning.

The Group was provided with a document, produced at the event, showing:

• values statement and key points relating to an integrated Commissioning Framework.

• a process for joint planning and commissioning.

• a model for integrated commissioning, which would include a virtual joint Commissioning Unit with pooled budgets.

It was noted that:

- a half day event had been planned for 27th April, to look at how to take the model forward and actions would be defined at that point.

- details of the outcomes of the event and actions would be provided to the North of Tees Partnership and the CCG Executive.

- all resources associated with the ASD pathways would need to be identified within a number of commissioned services and be brought together.

- the main commissioners involved were social care, education, schools and health.

- the identified model could be used for other services such as speech and language

Members considered the Group's Forward Plan.

It was noted that Public Health was considering the future of CAMHS services for Looked After Children, which were currently commissioned by the Council. There was potential for this to be done as a variation to the CCG contract, with the Council funding service requirement that were over and above those provided by CAMHS. It was agreed that, provisionally, details of the variation should be scheduled to be presented to the September meeting of this Group.
