Work Programme

Assistant Director Law and Governance (report enclosed).


The Assistant Director Law and Governance submitted a report (previously circulated) requesting that consideration be given to this Scrutiny Committee’s work programme for the remainder of the Municipal Year 2018/19.

Members previously agreed a revision to the work programme to enable the Committee to analyse information for each topic area aligning it to the eight outcomes and the three conditions in the Sustainable Community Strategy and relevant performance indicators from the Performance Management Framework.


There was discussion on the current status of various topics on the work programme including Integrated Care System (previously Sustainable Transformation Programme) whereby the Chief Finance Officer, CCG advised Members that there was a lot of work ongoing and that collaboration working would become the future.  Work was currently ongoing across Commissioners, NHS Trusts and local authorities and that changes could be observed within the next six months.  There had also been a restructuring of the CCG’s with the possibility of one Chief Executive for five CCGs together with cross-cutting of other responsibilities over several CCGs. 


In relation to Pain Management it was confirmed that a new provider had been contracted since February 2018 following a tendering exercise and that any pathway queries should be directed to Karen Hawkins, Director of Commissioning and Transformation.


In relation to the CDDFT CQC Inspection it was reported by the Communications Manager that the Trust was working through an Action Plan and that an update would be provided for Members at a future meeting of Scrutiny Committee.


The Healthwatch representative advised Members that during the Summer HWD was undertaking a piece of work on the Mental Health of Children and would feed back to Scrutiny Committee when completed.


RESOLVED – (a) That the current status of the Work Programme be noted.


(b) That the Work Programme be updated to reflect the decisions of this Scrutiny Committee.
