·         Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust

·         Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

·         Craven District Council

·         North Yorkshire County Council

 

Members were informed that the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership had already begun to make an impact such as the Cancer Alliance Board had attracted £12.6m in funding to transform cancer diagnostics; in Bradford the Cancer Alliance had invested in additional support to tackle smoking and to enable more people to be screened and receive earlier diagnostic testing to improve lung cancer outcomes;  developed a strategic case for change for stroke from prevention to after care; established a Joint Committee of CCGs; secured £31m in transformation funding for A&E, cancer, mental health, learning disabilities and diabetes, and £38m capital from the Autumn 2017 budget for CAMHS, pathology, telemedicine, and digital imaging.

 

It was reported that the MoU was an agreement between the WY&H health and care partners.  It set out the details of the commitment to work together in partnership to realise the share ambitions to improve the health of the 2.6 million people who live in the area, and to improve the quality of their health and care services.

 

Members were informed that the MoU was not a legal contract but was a formal agreement between all the partners; by signing the MoU partner organisations in Bradford District and Craven would commit to play their full roles as members of WY&H HCP and to work within the frameworks described;  accepting the share of collective responsibility gave all the partners the opportunity to achieve greater autonomy and control over how health and care services were developed and transformed.

 

It was reported that each partner organisation was being asked to approve and sign the MoU and that this process would be completed by October 2018.

 

The Chair welcomed the report and highlighted the importance of elected Member involvement and emphasised that it was crucial to look at prevention and getting involved earlier into peoples health rather than looking at clinical solutions;  stopping people getting ill in the first place and keeping them well for longer should be the real priority.  

 

Members were informed that through the WY&H HCP £1m funding for loneliness and carers support was being provided to Voluntary and Community Sector organisations to support that agenda as well as £2.6m for furthering primary care networks and £4m to help A&E Delivery Boards to help people in winter to receive support.  ...  view the full minutes text for item 10.

Minutes:

The Strategic Director, Children’s Services provided a verbal update on the current development, priorities and work of the Health and Social Care Economic Partnership and the “One Workforce” expression of interest for funding to the Leeds City Region Business Rates Pool.

 

It was reported that the Council, University of Bradford, Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, Bradford District Care Foundation Trust, Bradford Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust, the Clinical Commissioning Groups, and the District’s three Colleges have formed the Bradford Health and Social Care Economic Partnership.  The principle aim of the partnership was to have a District with sustainable and inclusive health economy where all children, young people and adults were supported to lead healthy lives and were educated and well-equipped to lead productive careers in the health and social care sectors.

 

Members were informed that a critically important and ambitious programme that the partnership had led on was the “One Workforce” successful funding submission to the Leeds City Region Business Rates Pool focused on achieving the ambition of re-balancing the health and social care economy in Bradford. The Health and Social Care Sector was the biggest employer but anticipated a gap in the workforce in future which needed addressing.

 

It was reported that the aim of the HSCEP was to bring together the requirements for more health and social care workers, look at opportunities such as women from South Asian Communities; bring together the existing assets in Bradford, world-leading research; a strong NHS and academic provision, alongside an innovative approach to health and social care learning and development, Bradford would be able to attract those practitioners in HSC who want to work in a place where they can make a real difference and see personal progression.

 

Members were informed that to support the delivery the “One Workforce” programme HSCEP had successfully secured £1.15m funding from the Leeds City Region Business Rates Pool.

 

The One Workforce Programme had three work streams:

 

·         Inclusive Community Recruitment – to develop a one-stop recruitment solution for the sector by “matching” individuals to employer vacancies, through the SkillsHouse provision; SkillsHouse operates employer led recruitment and development campaigns, providing pre-employment assessment and sector-relevant, bespoke training determined by assessment of an employer’s needs.

·         One Workforce Academy – the academy would bring together the planning, coordination, resource and delivery of learning and development for staff working in health and care in the District, supporting the transition towards an integrated workforce; it would enable the skills development of those supported into work by SkillsHouse and those within the health and social care workforce.

·         Bradford Health and Bradford Social Care system-wide recruitment – this would provide a comprehensive and integrated approach to recruitment across the Health and Social Care in Bradford; it would be designed to both raise the general profile of exciting careers within the sector in Bradford District but also continue to review the target specific workforce shortages.

 

Board Members made the following comments:

 

·         Great news that the HSCEP had successfully secured £1.15 m funding which was a good start to  ...  view the full minutes text for item 11.

The Health and Wellbeing Board Chair’s highlight report (Document “E”)  summarised business conducted between Board meetings. September’s report brought updates from the Board’s sub-groups and Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Specialist services re-commissioning.

 

It was reported that the Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Specialist Services contracts were due to expire at the end of March 2019 and that a formal commissioning process to identify and purchase these services for the future was being undertaken.  The original timetable had been to advertise tender opportunities in August 2018 and to have new services in place by the 1 April 2019. However the complex nature of the services has led to an extension of existing contracts and a new timetable.  Accordingly existing contracts had been extended to October 2019 to allow time and space to engage with the market effectively and run the procurement processes.

 

There was a multi-agency project team overseeing this work including membership from the West Yorkshire Police; Local Authority; Housing; Children’s Services; the CCG’s etc. It was reported that Members could feed any comments on these services through to Council officers or via their own organisation representatives.

 

The Board Member representing InCommunities asked if their organisation was involved in these processes and mentioned their work on the “Make a Stand” programme for domestic abuse which was being supported by social housing providers nationally. Officers indicated that they would be keen to know more.  

 

Resolved-

 

(1) That the progress of the sub groups be noted.

 

(2) That the Board recognises the breadth, importance and complexity of the work undertaken by providers in relation to the Domestic Violence Sexual Abuse services re-commissioning and notes the continuation of these via the new commissioning programme.
