Health and Well Being Plan Delivery - Report of the Director of Children and Adult Services, Darlington Borough Council.


The Director of Children and Adults Services submitted a report (previously circulated) updating the Board on the delivery of the ‘Ageing Well’ area of the Health and Well Being Plan.


The submitted report outlined the principles that the Health and Well Being Plan followed; its delivery and monitoring; stated that there were four outcomes specified for work under the ‘ageing well’ part of the plan namely, reducing social isolation, delaying the onset of support needs, supporting independence and ensuring intermediate and transitional care outside of hospital were effective; and that the key priority area for action in 2018/19 was Intermediate and Transitional Care.


RESOLVED – That the progress to date on delivering outcomes in the ‘Ageing Well’ part of the plan, be noted.


REASONS – (a)  In April 2017 the Health and Wellbeing Board agreed the Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017/22 would take a ‘Life Course’ approach.  The Board’s role as Children Trust Board means the plan covers the 0 -19 years age group, as well as adults and older people.


(b)  Priorities for action set out in the plan are derived from the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment and a Development Session held with Health and Wellbeing Board in April 2017.


(c)  The Plan has a five year initial life, with priorities identified for each year which will inform the Health and Wellbeing Board agendas.


(d)  Delivery of the Plan’s objectives requires each partner to align their strategies and plans, to ensure focus and avoid either duplication of activity against the same objectives or activity which does not contribute to the delivery of the Health and Wellbeing Plan objectives.
