Minutes:

The Board received a presentation from the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service detailing the launch of the Future of the Fire Service consultation.  In particular the Board noted that the Service would see a restructuring and widening of the role to incorporate more community/preventative work.  Within Hampshire there were currently 75 large engines which would change to 25 large, 25 medium and 25 small response vehicles that would provide for flexibility and attendance by the correct vehicle response dependent on the type of fire/incident. 

 

It was noted that in relation to community/preventative work the most vulnerable were the over 65’s however there was also a role in relation to children and young people.  The Integration Board strongly supported the proposals and would have oversight to ensure connectivity across agencies and the community.  In relation to funding it was noted that discussions were taking place with the Local Authority, Clinical Commissioning Group and Health colleagues.  Discussions were also taking place through the Local Safeguarding Adults Board regarding what would be a very useful service and fit within the wider part of the Care Act 2014 albeit any duplication of provision of services would need to be avoided therefore communication would be key. 

 

The Board noted that responses to the consultation would be submitted on an individual basis in addition to the Board’s response.

Minutes:

The Board considered the report highlighting progress against the commitments in the Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2013 – 2016.  The commitments formed the basis of monitoring success against the Health and Wellbeing Strategy and would inform the new Health and Wellbeing Strategy to 2025.

 

The Board noted the actions and updates on the following commitments:-

·  33 – focussed monitoring was taking place through the Ofsted Action Plan at the Corporate Parenting Committee.  In addition the statutory reporting for care leavers was 18-21yrs however Southampton had now taken the approach to report on 16-21yrs;

·  41 – had been re-badged from green to amber as a result of a review of actions rather than them being more of an issue; 

·  63 – IT issues were being resolved; and

·  There were 12 ambers which had now been reported to the Board on two consecutive meetings therefore a meeting would be set up outside of the Board with the Assistant Chief Executive, Chair, Vice Chair of the Board and Andrew Mortimore, Director of Public Health.

 

RESOLVED:

  i.  That progress against the commitments in the Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2013-16 be noted; and

  ii.  That the further action to set up a meeting with the Assistant Chief Executive, Chair, Vice Chair and Director of Public Health to progress the commitments that have remained amber in the Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2013 – 2016 be approved.
