Minutes:

The Board gave consideration to the proposed Terms of Reference of a joint committee of Oldham Council and Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group under Regulation 10 (2) of the NHS Bodies and Local Authorities Partnership Arrangements Regulations 2000 which had been agreed by the respective organisations via CCG Governing body and the Council’s Cabinet.

The Board would exercise on behalf of the CCG and Council the integrated commissioning functions established under Section.75 of the NHS Act 2006.

The NHS Oldham CCG - Strategic Director of Corporate Affairs & Resources provided Members of the Board with an overview of the membership, voting rights, deputies, quorum and remit.

The Board were advised that as time progressed the accountability and quantum of budgets within the Section 75 Agreement would increase.

The Chair expressed some concern at having the casting vote should there be an equality of voting and advised the Board that the preference would be to ensure that there was full agreement on matters before the Board.

It was suggested that should a simple majority not be reached, the matter would be taken outside of the meeting to obtain further detail/information and the issue would be reconsidered at the next available Board meeting.

The Chair also requested two further additions to the Terms and Reference in relation to the Health and Wellbeing Board and the values and behaviors of the Commissioning Partnership Board.

Options/alternatives considered

Option 1 – Agree the terms of reference presented to the board.

Option 2 – Make amendments to the terms of reference and agree at the next meeting of the Board.

 

RESOLVED – That:

1.    The Chair’s casting vote is removed from the terms of reference and replaced with an alternative to dealing with equality of votes.

Minutes:

Councillor Jacques joined the meeting for this Item.

Consideration was given to a report of Accountable Officer which sought to provide the board with assurance and an update on the progress of Oldham transformation plans for the allocation of the Greater Manchester Transformation Funding of £21.2m.

It was reported that the Council and CCG along with other stakeholders were working hard to make sure quality, accessible essentials such as housing, education, transport and employment opportunities were in place for the residents of the Borough.

The Oldham Cares transformation programme aimed to deliver the greatest and fastest improvements in wellbeing and health for the residents of households and communities. 

The following 4 proposals had been reviewed and assessed at each stage of the Investment Review and Assurance Process and funding was to be allocated according to the recommendations and activity requirements outlined in Sections 3 and 4 of the report.

·         Place – Thriving Communities

·         Children’s health – Start Well – Pilot in two clusters.

·         Mental health – Provision and Wellbeing – Pilot in two clusters.

·         Integrated Community Services – People to access services closer to their home.

Assurance and updates would be provided to the Commissioning Partnership Board to assure that investment continued to support care pathway development in Oldham for prevention, community resilience and care closer to home.

Assessment had taken place with regards to Oldham’s readiness to implement its investment proposals. This would be provided on a quarterly basis to the Board.

In relation to Integrated Community Services there was agreement on the model presented to the Health and Wellbeing Board held on 26th June 2018, however for the delivery of this model there was not yet consensus ore the ability to manage within the financial envelope and 3 interconnected work streams would be brought together. It was recommended that a cluster implementation board be established and Chaired by Dr John Patterson, Chief Clinical Officer.

Options/alternatives considered

Option 1 – To agree the recommendations as detailed within the report.

Option 2 – Not to agree the recommendations within the report. This would put the transformation funding set aside for the Oldham locality plan at risk and delay decision making.

 

RESOLVED – That:

1.    The transformation proposals continue to support the delivery of the Oldham Vision and Outcomes Framework for the people of Oldham.

2.    The transformation proposals enable a sustainable Health and Social Care system closer to home and reduce the reliance on acute hospital services and deliver Oldham Care’s commitment to create a health and social care system which is focused upon prevention and early intervention in our “Thriving” Communities.

3.    A robust governance process for the allocation of transformation funding and the development of the plans had been followed.

4.    Any proposals must demonstrate a sufficient evidence base to the Commissioning Partnership Board to commence implementation into an operational context.

5.    Any Enabler funding requested from the GM Transformation Fund would be pooled across Oldham Cares, to ensure coordination and best value from this budget. The  ...  view the full minutes text for item 9.
