Agency Updates


Mira Haynes updated the Board on the red flagged care establishments, and advised that letters had been sent to all clients affected. The homes were being carefully monitored and action plans were in place. The CQC had rated the home as ‘Requires Improvement’, which was disappointing as the home was newly opened. Bracknell Forest was acting to assist the home.


Philip Cook commented that Involve had recently launched Bracknell Forest Get Involved, a new volunteering portal. Partners were asked to use the portal to advertise their volunteering opportunities. A meeting was being arranged for volunteer co-ordinators across partner organisations to promote the portal, and a marketing strategy was being developed.


Gill Vickers informed the Board that Lisa McNally had been formally appointed as Director of Public Health for Bracknell Forest.


Dr William Tong informed the Board that Dr Andy Brooks was now the Accountable Officer for both Surrey Heath and East Berkshire CCGs. William confirmed that the joining of the three East Berkshire CCGs would not impact on the quality of data collected for Bracknell Forest.
