Members received a presentation from Ann Baxter, Independent Chair of the Teeswide Safeguarding Adults Board, relating to the Board's Annual Report 2016/17 and its Strategic Business Plan 2017/18.

Discussion:

- The Safeguarding Board recognised that there were groups, such as Asylum Seekers, who were difficult to reach and work continued to address this issue.

- There was discussion around people who had a dual diagnosis and, in particular, Mental Health problems and drugs misuse. It was noted that work to ensure that services were joined up, had been undertaken, so that people could access the most appropriate service and move between services when necessary.

- The Board noted that the Safeguarding Children Board was likely to move to a North of Tees model and it was agreed that there were lessons to be learned from the operation of the Teeswide Adults Safeguarding Board.

- It was noted that a Teeswide Mental Capacity Act procedure had been agreed and training in this area was a priority.

- it was explained that there had been a review of 'places of safety' and gaps had been identified.
HWB
70/17
Consideration was given to a report that provided an update on work undertaken, collectively, by the Clinical Commissioning Group and the Council's Public Health service, regarding Diabetes.

Specific reference was made to :

- the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme.

- ongoing multi agency working and the development of a joint action plan.

- a joint consultation with patients and carers on diabetes related health and health care needs.

- Diabetes Community Services Remodelling.

Discussion:

- members supported the integrated approach described in the report. It was suggested that a high level strategic action plan be developed by the multi agency working group, chaired by the CCG.

- it was hoped that the prevention work being undertaken would help with creating capacity in the treatment of conditions associated with diabetes.

- some of the work being undertaken had been pump primed and this funding may not be available in future years.

- it was important to map the pathways across diabetes to understand when collective resources would have the most effect.

- it was agreed that the Adult Partnership would discuss the diabetes work, being undertaken. Board Members would be invited to any future meeting.

- it was indicated that there would be discussion, outside of the Board, around support for people with diabetes and mental health issues.
HWB
71/17
Members considered a report relating to Care Coordinators.

It was explained that this preventative service identified individuals considered at high risk of going into hospital and worked with those patients to create a person centered plan to help them to live safely and happily at home. The scheme was designed to work alongside the medical support provided by the patient's surgery, and focused on the things that patient's identified as being day to day issues and worries. Working alongside local authority, charitable and voluntary services, the Care Coordinators provide expertise in the local support available that individuals may not be aware of and could help them to gain more freedom and a better quality of living.

Discussion:

- Reference was made to Health and Wellbeing Facilitators, Health Ambassadors, Care Coordinators and Health Navigators. It was recognised that these groups all performed different roles, however, there were areas of cross over and work was ongoing to map these and identify linkages between the various groups. This work may identify potential efficiencies.
HWB
72/17
Consideration was given to a report that provided a performance update on key indicators from the performance monitoring framework for the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy delivery plan, as at January 2018.

Discussion -

- Members noted the obesity in children figures, which reflected the England Average. The proportion of children measured, as obese, at 4 -5 years was 10.7%. This proportion doubled to 21.1% for children 10 - 11 years of age. It was felt that this demonstrated the need for strategies to undertake prevention work at as early a stage as possible.

- the Board asked if data, on smoking starters, could be provided. This would help with any future strategy decisions.
HWB
73/17
Members updates:

- An update relating to the building issues at Roseberry Park was provided. It was noted that services and the volume of activity was being maintained. It was explained that the Trust was involved in an ongoing legal process and an update would be provided when appropriate.

- an update on the Joint Targeted Area Inspection - Neglect, was provided. It was explained that the report had been published on 15 January 2018 and a response and action plan was being prepared.

- Members were provided with an update on the current proposals, relating to Respite Care and Breaks, for people with learning disabilities. A decision around this was expected on 1st February 2018.

- the existing communication and engagement agreement, between the Council and local NHS Partners, was highlighted. It was agreed that the agreement would be re-circulated to Board members for distribution within their organisations.
