Members considered a draft SEND Joint Commissioning Strategy.

Discussion:

- Many of the recommendations detailed in the document cut across the whole SEND agenda. The Group agreed that it was important to ensure that the Strategy, primarily, related to joint commissioning issues and didn't stray into other areas, such as processes around Education Health Care Plans etc. Issues, not directly related to joint commissioning, were already the subject of considerable work by a range of Groups.

- the final strategy/action plan would need to include some goals with indicative timescales.

- the Group felt that the priorities identified in the document, and particularly priority 5, best reflected what the focus of the strategy needed to be.

- it was suggested that the Strategy may need to identify that, whilst there was a commitment to work jointly to design services, it may not always be appropriate to commission those services jointly.

- Members agreed that the draft strategy document provided excellent background, and context, but they were keen to see the strategy and action plan, pitched at a higher level, focusing specifically on joint commissioning issues and based on priority 5.
