Health and Wellbeing Board Annual Report –

Mr Taylor Gooby asked if the Teams around the patients were operating in all areas across the County.  The Director of Primary Care, Partnerships and Engagement, DDES CCG explained that there were 13 TAPs, 8 in the DDES area and 5 covering North Durham.  They were seen as an opportunity to have wrap around social care in the community.  Some services were being localised including mental health services that had dedicated staffing.  The Principal Overview and Scrutiny Officer reminded members that Lesley Jeavons, Director of Integration gave an undertaking of the model to be developed as the Committee had asked for assurances.

 

Referring to the Wellbeing for Life Initiative, Mr Taylor Gooby asked if this service would be commissioned for a further 18 months.  The Director of Public Health explained that this would depend on the funding available.

 

With regards to the transfer of care figures Councillor Crute asked if there was an impact nationally.  The SAB Business Manager advised that this was being closely monitored but she would report back to the Strategic Manager for the Health and Wellbeing Board.

 

Safeguarding Adults Board Annual Report –

Councillor Crute asked that the link between performance management and financial constraints was closely monitored as this was a great challenge.

 

The Chairman was concerned that there appeared to be no direct working with local members to seek their views.  He was advised that Councillor Hovvels was involved and that engagement was carried out via the AAPs.

 

Mr Taylor Gooby asked if training was carried out in relation to the modern slavery issue in County Durham.  The SAB Business Manager reported that this was an issue nationally but that there were reports of this emerging in County Durham.  She advised that there was a drive to raise awareness and to roll out multi-agency briefings with work involving both housing and police colleagues.
