Members received a report that provided an overview of the Alcohol Service.

The report suggested that an option to extend the current contract, by 12 months, be taken up, and a direct award of a further 12 months (1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020), be made to the current provider (Change Grow Live (CGL)).

It was noted that during this 24 month period, a comprehensive review of the service model would be undertaken. By undertaking the extension and direct award the contract renewal date would be brought in line with the substance misuse contract. It was felt that this alignment of contracts would create efficiency opportunities at the time of re-procurement.

It was noted that officers were looking at whether any savings could be realised during the extension/ award periods.

It was indicated that performance information relating to the contract would be provided to this Group.

An update on work being undertaken by the Police was provided during consideration of this item:

- Cleveland Divert - This was an early intervention programme and looked to get people into services quicker without criminalising them i.e. there was a conditional offer that individuals would not face criminal charges, if they engaged with specialist services. Work was ongoing to understand what the demand on services (e.g. alcohol. drugs, mental health) might be and this would be shared with public health in due course. Potential increases in demand may create the need for additional commissioning and there would need to be discussions in this regard.

- there was considerable work being progressed around Adverse Childhood Experiences, particularly in Middlesbrough

It was agreed that a report on Cleveland Divert and the potential demand issues would come back to this and the Adults Commissioning Group.
CHW
30/17
Members received a draft SEND Joint Commissioning Strategy.

It was explained that there were plans to consult with parents, carers and young people. It was also explained that, following the consultation, and any other comments, the Strategy would come back to the Group and the Health and Wellbeing Board for approval.

Actions identified in the strategy would be prioritized and progress against the action plan would be brought to this group periodically.
CHW
31/17
Members received an update on the CAMHS Service review.

Details of the rationale for the review and the methodology to be used was provided.

Members noted some of the intended outcomes of the review including:

- an understanding of what services were available, which supported families and the wellbeing of children and young people.

- understanding the landscape and ensuring all partners were working collaboratively together, and, if possible, to the same set of outcomes.

In terms of timescales a gant chart had been developed and could be provided to the Group. It was envisaged that the review would be completed in April 2018.

Members were provided with a copy of the refreshed Future in Mind Plan, and discussed some of its new elements.
CHW
32/17
Members considered a report that provided options relating to the Commissioned Looked After Children Mental Health Service.
CHW
33/17
An update on ASD pathway and waiting list was given.

It was noted that a meeting had been held between the CCG and Council and a number of actions had been identified. TEWV was looking at how the waiting list might be addressed. More meetings were planned in February.

Action plans had been rationalized.

Meetings with North Tees had been held in terms of the diagnostic element of the pathway.
