Health and Wellbeing Board Workshop output pdf icon PDF 206 KB


Fiona Slevin-Brown, Managing Director for Bracknell Forest reported on the output of a recent Health and Wellbeing workshop which had arisen from the last meeting in order to consider the current JSNA and Health and Wellbeing priorities in light of COVID.


The workshop, held in October, had come up with a shortlist of areas of focus with nuances for particular population groups.


The workshop had highlighted children and young people and mental health as two key areas of focus, and partners were discussing a third priority. Obesity and loneliness and isolation had both been proposed as potential priorities and there was support for both.


In response to questions, the following points were noted:

·        Partners expressed their support for obesity and loneliness and isolation respectively as the third priority.

·        It was noted that Bracknell Forest’s Overview and Scrutiny work included a programme on loneliness and isolation, and the Board could support any scrutiny work in this regard.

·        Partners were reminded of the interconnectivity of loneliness and obesity.


Integrated Care System Roadmap


Timothy Wheadon presented on the ICS Roadmap. The Frimley ICS had been recognised nationally as a successful ICS, due to the strong relationships between partner organisations.


Partners had reviewed the performance of the ICS, and had developed a 6 point strategy of priorities which were likely to be reflected across partners’ own plans including Starting Well and Focussing on Community.


Arising from the review, partners had recognised the importance of system-wide working, collaboration, strategic commissioning, a shared financial framework, governance, and a Place-based approach to working. It was noted that a Place-based approach was easier to achieve in small Unitary Authorities.


It was suggested that the Health and Wellbeing Board could be a key link between system and local practices. Councillor Birch asked all Board members to feed their comments on the Board practices and connection to the ICS to himself.
