The meeting received a report providing an update on performance and progress against the priorities in the 2016-2020 Health and Wellbeing Strategy. The report provided a performance summary for each priority, identifying areas for improvement and areas of strength. The report identified those activities that were supporting the progress against those priorities, together with those areas where further enquiries were required.
The meeting noted the increase in the number of permanent admissions to residential care identified in the report, but noted that this had resulted in part from the method of recording to include self-funders. The meeting noted that this was an area for attention, although in-year remedial action had improved the position.
The meeting discussed the importance of developing intelligence from the data that would assist in predicting the outcome of actions as part of an overall outcome framework. It was acknowledged that this was an area for further work, both in respect of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy and the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment.
(i) that the performance report and action plan updates be noted; and
(ii) that the work to develop an outcomes framework to assist in predicting the impact of interventions be welcomed.
