Mark Sanders reported that Healthwatch had become aware of health issues arising from a block of flats in Bracknell, and confirmed that this message had been relayed to the relevant professionals.

Lisa also reported that Bracknell Forest had been shortlisted for the Local Government Association and NHS Digital Social Care Digital Innovation Programme.  Only 12 out of 88 Councils were shortlisted.  Bracknell Forest had submitted a bid aimed at designing a solution to assist those who did not have easy internet access to engage with community initiatives. The solution has now been designed in collaboration with residents and the decision on whether we will receive further funding to implement the solution was awaited.


Mira Haynes reported that Bracknell Forest Council’s intermediate care service had been soft launched, and marked the beginning of 7 day service to offer additional therapy support.

Councillor Birch also clarified that Bracknell Forest Council now had no governance connection to Silva Homes, formerly Bracknell Forest Homes. Although the nomination agreement remained with the Council, Silva Homes was now a Registered Provider in the same way as other Providers.
