Report of Executive Member for Place, Councillor Paul Claussen.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Executive Member for Place introduced the Chairman of the Health and Wellbeing Board, Councillor Bill Borrett, to present the report.  He highlighted the Strategic Framework which ultimately aimed to bring partners’ existing strategies together to create a single sustainable system.  It would allow partners to work together to use resources in the most effective way to prioritise prevention and support the most vulnerable. 

 

The Executive Member for Finance and Delivery urged the Health and Wellbeing Board to lobby MPs to embed Healthcare within the planning process, as Health practices were not currently statutory consultees. However, Breckland currently operated a voluntary practice to notify Health practices of significant growth within the District.

 

Councillor Crawford emphasised the need to do more for Healthcare as within Thetford there was only one dental practice and with the start of the new housing developments within Thetford he raised concerns that there was currently no plans to increase the dental surgeries within Thetford.

Report of Executive Member for Place, Councillor Paul Claussen.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The report set out the strategy for the whole of Norfolk.  The County Council had responsibility for Health but the Council was taking a more active part in the three priorities of prevention, tackling inequalities and integrating ways of working.

 

The following points were raised:

 

·         Councillor Kybird queried the figure spent on health and it was clarified that it should read £1.6 billion.

·         Gambling was part of the strategy which would bring a number of services together to deliver interventions.

·         The Health & Wellbeing Boards could lobby on the lack of respite care available in the District.

 

The report was otherwise noted.
