VCS ADULT HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE FORUM 27 JULY 2011 Health and Wellbeing: A County update Mick Connell, Director of Adults and Communities, Leicestershire County Council
Why are we establishing a Health and Wellbeing Board?
Included in the NHS White Paper ‘Equity and Excellence’ Liberating the NHS (July 2010)
Health and Social Care Bill (January 2011) makes the establishment of a Health and Wellbeing Board mandatory for each upper tier authority
Leicestershire is an early implementer
What does being an early implementer mean?
Working with DH and other early implementers, sharing good practice and ideas
Shadow Board in place by April 2011
A priority so we can:
Keep focused on improving health and well being outcomes during transition; and
Maintain momentum on important developments already in progress
What will the Health and Wellbeing Board do?
Primary purpose is to:
Promote integration and partnership working between the NHS, Social Care, Public Health and other local services; and
Improve local democratic accountability.
How will the Board achieve its purpose?
Identify needs and priorities across Leicestershire’s population, and ensure commissioning and delivery plans reflect the findings of our Joint Strategic Needs Assessment
Prepare and publish a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy
Communicate and engage with local people about how they can achieve the best possible quality of life
Have oversight of public sector resources, where appropriate.
What is the difference between the Shadow and Statutory Boards?
Shadow Board is an advisory body to the County Council’s Cabinet, NHS LCR Trust Board and GP Commissioning Consortia
Statutory Board will be in place once legislation is passed, expected to be April 2013, and will be a Committee of the County Council with executive powers
Who is on the Shadow Board?
The Cabinet Lead Member for Health
The Cabinet Lead Member for Adults and Communities
The Cabinet Lead Member for the Children and Young People’s Service
Two representatives of each of the Clinical Commissioning Groups (GP Consortia) within the local authority area
The Director of Public Health
The Director of Adults and Communities
The Director of the Children and Young People’s Service
Who is on the Shadow Board? (cont)
LINk representation - two places (to replace with Local Health Watch representation, when established)
The Chief Executive of NHS LCR (the local Primary Care Trust)*
Local Medical Committee representation – one place
District Council representation – two places.
*This place will allocated to a representative of the NHS Commissioning Board when this is established and their role is more defined.
Membership may also adapt later, pending any new legislative requirements
How are stakeholders being engaged at this early stage?
A comprehensive stakeholder engagement plan has been in place since February and is ongoing.
This has included a series of briefings and updates to officers, staff, council members, professional groups, partnership groups, user/patient groups, NHS Trusts, LINks, Voluntary Sector, other agencies.
Materials also made available electronically including presentations, briefing notes, frequently asked questions, press items etc.

What are the implications of the new board for existing groups?
The health and wellbeing board will be one of the new commissioning hubs in the Leicestershire Together partnership during its Shadow period

How will stakeholders engage with the Board?
Number of groups will work with the Board to shape and inform commissioning decisions, and support and deliver more integrated services.
For example a Staying Healthy sub group (focused on key areas of health improvement such as smoking, obesity etc), and several others eg Learning Disabilities Partnership Board or Substance Misuse Board.
The sub groups involve a wide range of users, providers, commissioners, professional advisors, communities and other stakeholders - to ensure that the Board’s recommendations are well-informed and that services are successfully designed and delivered.
What’s happening now and next?
The Leics H&WB Board
Had a development session on 19 April
Met twice (26 April and 23 June 2011) where 8 initial priorities for the Board are being proposed
We are continuing to:
Shape the Board’s sub structures with stakeholders
Deliver our stakeholder engagement plan
Learn from other early implementers and there is a lot of interest nationally in our local work.
How will the Board enhance local progress to date?
Focus on top priorities for health and wellbeing at system wide level.
Improve governance, democratic accountability and how resources are allocated
Reduce duplication and waste
Take a systematic approach to joint commissioning with strong clinical leadership
Use our good foundation of partnership working to improve integration of services
Learn collectively in this developmental, shadow year.
System Level Themes
4 key themes have emerged as the focus for our system level work:
Improving health outcomes
Improving service integration
Improving efficiency and balancing the economy
The Shadow Board has developed 8 strategic priorities under themes 1-3, based on existing JSNA evidence and strategic priorities of partners
