The minutes of the meeting held on 26 September 2017 were confirmed as a correct record.
HWB
34/17
Consideration was given to a report that provided an update highlighting high level priorities for the developing mental health strategic action plan.

The Board was asked to agree to the establishment of a Mental Health Steering Group, to monitor and ensure effective implementation of the action plan. A Terms of Reference for the Group was provided for the Board's consideration.

Discussion:

- the strategy would be co-produced and it was suggested that part of the membership of the Steering Group should be a person who had experience of using mental health services. This was something that TEWV and the Recovery College would be able to assist with.

- Housing and accommodation would be a key area of work and was an important element of recovery. The model around supported tenancy for people with learning disabilities would be useful to look at in a mental health context.

- it was noted that family commitments could sometimes be a barrier to people seeking help with mental health issues and this would be considered by the Steering Group. Reference was made to the sitting services, for carers, which could help people who struggled to access services, because of caring responsibilities.

- it was suggested that any draft strategic action plan be taken to the Children and Young People's Health and Wellbeing Partnership and the Adults Health and Wellbeing Partnership.

- the action plan would inform the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

- members of the Board would need to ensure that their representatives on the Steering Group were the right people and at an appropriate level to make decisions.

- there would be significant workforce challenges that would need to be considered.

- it was agreed that the name of the Steering Group should include the word 'wellbeing'.
HWB
35/17
Members considered a report that provided an overview of the BCF 2017 - 19 Plan and 2016/17 Quarter 4 Better Care Performance submission.

It was noted that, in accordance with a previous delegation made by the Board, the Chair had been consulted on the performance information prior to submission and was presented to the Board for information.

It was noted that a workshop had been arranged to look at the Better Care Fund in detail and feedback would be presented to a future meeting of the Board.
HWB
36/17
Members considered a report that provided a general overview and progress of the Integrated Personal Commissioning Programme (IPC).

The report also discussed the 'scaling up' of IPC and provided details of outcomes from the recent NESTA 100 Day Challenge.

Discussion:

- the model may be able to inform work relating to SEND and personal budgets for children.

- members agreed that early prevention activity in areas like smoking and diabetes helped to reduce the impact on the social care system.
HWB
37/17
The Board considered a report relating to the Care Quality Commission's Appreciative Review Programme.

It was explained that each review would answer the question: 'How well do people move through the health and social care system, with a particular focus on the interface, and what improvements could be made?'

It was noted that a Task and Finish Group had been set up to prepare as if the local system was undergoing a review imminently. A report would then be presented to the Board on the group's work.
HWB

Members were given the opportunity to provide updates to the Board.

A Member raised an issue relating to the significant, and increasing, length of time it took for children to be assessed for Autism Spectrum Disorder, once referred to specialist services. It was agreed that the CCG be requested to provide a report, on this matter, to the next meeting of the Board. The Council's Director of Children's Services would contact the CCG in this regard.

Members were provided with an update relating to building work at Roseberry Park Mental Health Hospital, to remedy certain construction defects. It was envisaged that patients would be moved to Sandwell Park Hospital, Hartlepool, block by block, whilst work was undertaken. It was difficult, at this stage, to provide a timescale for works to be completed.
