Apologies For Absence

Urgent Business

Urgent business, if any, introduced by the Chair


There were two items of urgent business.


1) Manchester Arena


The Chair said the following


“I just wanted to express, and I am sure all Board members will join me in this, my thoughts and thanks, to all the officers and organisations that were involved in the immediate response, and subsequent support provided to the victims, families and friends of those affected by the Manchester bombing attack on the 22nd May.

The response to events that took place that night will have been planned and practiced for by the emergency services, in the hope that they never had to be put into practice. Unfortunately they did, but all indications are that the response from all involved was first-rate. From the co-ordinated Police, Ambulance and Fire Service response within minutes of the attack, to the Hospitals across Manchester who cared, and are still caring, for those injured in the attack, and to the counselling and community services that are supporting the affected individuals and communities come to terms with the aftermath of the night”.


2) Fire Safety in Tower Blocks


JaxEffiong updated the Board on the risk assessments and reassurance visits being undertaken. Where in-depth assessments had been undertaken, there had been a number of failures found in relation to cladding, fire doors and escape routes. A community event would take place locally in conjunction with FCHO, for which a date was yet to be fixed.


Declarations of Interest

To Receive Declarations of Interest in any Contract or matter to be discussed at the meeting.


There were no declarations of interest received.


Public Question Time

To receive Questions from the Public, in accordance with the Council’s Constitution.


The following public question was received:-


RE: NHS England missing target for ‘Urgent’ eating disorder referrals

On the NHS England news site on the 23rd May 2017, there was an item on the above topic. I ask this body to look at this item and bring it to the next Health & Wellbeing Board in June.


I would like to know:

1)       Does this affect anyone within this borough

2)       If so, what is the current position of what is stated on this item, on the time people have to wait

3)       Will you be looking if patients with eating disorders are having to wait to be seen longer than stated within the report.

4)       I would like to see updates when appropriate to be brought to the Board.


The following responses were provided:-

1)       No

2)       Not applicable

3)       All patients have been seen within the guidance times.

4)       The Board is happy to provide this information as it moves forward.  It is worth noting that, as this is a national requirement, CCGs and providers are both monitored in relation to this.


Further information was also provided. A new Community Eating Disorder Service (CEDS) has been developed (commenced 4 July 2016) across the footprint of Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust (due to economies of scale). As the guidance stipulates a minimum 500,000 total population footprint, Oldham has jointly commissioned the service with neighbouring CCGs to ensure adequate population coverage. A single borough model with an enhancement to current eating disorder provision, with a dedicated eating disorder community-based team in the south (Trafford, Stockport and Tameside & Glossop) and north (Oldham, Bury, Heywood Middleton and Rochdale); and a single service model with dedicated eating disorder community-based team across all localities. The service is in line with the recently published “Access and Waiting Time Standard for Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder Commissioning Guide” (2015), i.e. waiting times are achieving national targets:

         Children and young people with eating disorders (urgent cases) that wait 1 week or less from referral to start of NICE-approved treatment. 

         Children and young people with eating disorders (routine cases) that wait 4 weeks or less from referral to start of NICE-approved treatment.


The service currently operates from temporary accommodation, but a permanent base has been sourced.  Once the permanent base is operational, drop-in/activities provision will be available out-of-hours (1-8pm Monday to Friday) and at weekends (10am-4pm), with space for an information/mini library.  Young people will be able to have up to 3 sessions per week, offering early evening or weekend times to support working parents and school/college attendance.  Day provision will continue to be offered on a case-by-case basis through the Horizon inpatient unit with the community eating disorder service facilitating step down to intensive home and community support. Healthy Young Minds (formerly known as CAMHS) will be required to support service delivery where there is co-morbidity and utilise the community eating disorder staff for consultation and supervision around the eating disorder aspects of the  ...  view the full minutes text for item 4.

                  GM Business Rate Retention Pilot

The Board were informed that resources would not be pooled at GM level and would go to individual authorities. The main choice in relation to priorities remained with the Board and local partners.

ICO Developments and GM Transformation Fund – Development of the Strategic Commissioning Function and Integrated Care Organisation pdf icon PDF 19 KB


The Board gave consideration to a report and received a presentation updating them on the progress made with the design of both the Strategic Commissioning Function (SCF) and the Managed Care Organisation (MCO), and a timeline of activity going forwards.


It was intended that services would become more blended and less isolated. Prime providers would manage whole delivery not just their own organisational outcomes. This was considered to be an easy model for providers to move towards quickly, avoiding the risk of only a single provider.



1.     The report be noted

2.     The matter be considered for further discussion at the Board’s development session in July.


Dementia Buddy Guardian Angels pdf icon PDF 124 KB


The Board gave consideration to a report the Dementia Buddy Guardian Angel project, aimed at supporting people living with Alzheimer’s and Dementia and also helping their respective families and carers.


The project aimed to provide Dementia and Alzheimer's sufferers with two free 'Guardian Angel' devices, which were very simple to use. The Board noted that the devices had been developed to allow members of the public to use their phones in a contactless method to scan the device. The 'Tap Your Phone To Get Them Home' method would give them the name and an emergency contact number of the person who is in need of help.


The devices were intended to be worn all the time to give people an increased level of independence to go out, whilst helping to make them as safe as they possibly could be.



1.     The report be noted.

2.     The Board thanked the Project for taking the time to come and talk to them and asked that the Project be invited to the next meeting of the Dementia Partnership in August.

MH:2K aimed to enable young people to explore mental health issues and influence decision-making in their local area and empower 14-25 year olds to:

         Identify the mental health issues that they see as most important;

         Engage their peers in discussing and exploring these topics;

         Work with key local decision-makers to make recommendations for change.


In Oldham 20 motivated young adults were recruited from diverse backgrounds to become the first MH:2K Citizen Researchers. The Citizen Researchers selected 5 key priorities to address through the pilot: Self-harm; Stigma; Professional Practice; Family and Relationships; The Environment and Culture of Education.


The Board noted the team delivered Roadshow events to schools, colleges and community groups across Oldham and the project exceeded its original target of engaging 500 young people across Oldham.

·                 Undertake comprehensive mapping of what activity is currently in place and the identification of any gaps.

·                 The Task and Finish group will devise a prioritised action plan

·                 The action plan will be presented to the Health and Wellbeing Board in Autumn for approval.
