4 INTEGRATION OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE - REPORT BY THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE, DUMFRIES & GALLOWAY COUNCIL AND THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE, NHS, DUMFRIES & GALLOWAY

Decision

 

4.1 REAFFIRMED that the focus of our joint work on the integration of Adult Health and Social Care services was to address the needs of individuals, ensuring self-determination and a commitment to a person-centred approach to care; helping people to remain in their own home and/or in their local community; and to be as independent as long as possible;

 

4.2 AGREED to recommend to Dumfries and Galloway Council and Dumfries and Galloway NHS Board:

 

4.2.1 to adopt the Body Corporate model, and establish an Integration Joint Board, for the integration of Adult Health and Social Care between the Council and NHS Board;

 

4.2.2 to formally establish an Integration Joint Board through the Body Corporate model, replacing the Community Health and Social Care Partnership Board with the Integration Joint Board, in an interim form, overseeing the progress and development of integrated services, and the necessary preparations, by 1 April 2015 and their delivery thereafter;

 

4.2.3 to confirm the important role of Area Committees in scrutinising the delivery of local health and social care services within their communities, with a clear remit to feed back to the Integration Joint Board;

 

MEMBER - Julie White left the meeting - 7 NHS Board Sub Committee Members present

 

4.2.4 to designate the Chief Operating Officer within NHS Dumfries and Galloway as the Chief Officer for the Integration Joint Board - required by legislation - and to undertake this in a shadow role prior to legislation coming into force on 1 April 2015;

 

MEMBER - Julie White re-entered the meeting - 8 NHS Board Sub Committee Members present

 

4.2.5 to establish a single management structure, led by the Chief Officer, and managed through an Adult Health and Social Care Management Board;

 

4.2.6 to implement organisational arrangements that will support local accountability, including the establishment of four distinct Area Health and Social Care teams, each managed by an Area Health and Social Care Manager who will have full budget and resource delegation and overall responsibility for the delivery of local Adult services within that Area. These Area arrangements and a range of defined region wide services would be overseen by one senior manager with operational responsibility for Adult Health and Social Care;
