Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Board received a report from the Chief Executive – Manchester Local Care Organisation (MLCO) which provided an update on the development of the Manchester Local Care Organisation. The report provided an overview on:

 

  • Integrated Neighbourhood Team Development;
  • New Models of Care;
  • Winter resilience and system escalation;
  • Phase 2 development; and
  • Clinical Advisory Group.

 

The Board was informed of the activities that had taken place in the first 10 months of the MLCO which had focussed on four key functions:

 

  • Prevention Services;
  • Integrated Neighbourhood Team;
  • High Impact Primary Care
  • Work with hospitals to access care in the community to prevent hospital admission and quicker discharge from hospital.

 

The Chair invited questions.

 

A board member commented that a key principle of the MLCO, when it was established, was the work with citizens on service improvement and on a design model of care and asked how this was working. Reference was also made on issues regarding the forwarding on of patient’s paperwork to care homes on their discharge from hospital. It was reported that NHS procedures does not allow email to non NHS email accounts and has made the process difficult and prolonged.

 

It was reported that co-production was a theme in the design of the key functions and this included the engagement of citizens on access to and the delivery of care and would continue to be a feature of the organisation. A report supporting work on engagement would be submitted to a future meeting of the Board. The matter of the NHS procedure not emailing to non NHS accounts would be taken back and discussed with the MHCC and MLCO in order to address the issue.

 

The Chair reported that work was ongoing to further develop Neighbourhood Working to harmonise working boundaries for services provided by the Council and health.

Infant Mortality Strategy pdf icon PDF 401 KB

The report of the Director of Population Health and Wellbeing is enclosed.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

 

The Board received a report from the Director of Population Health and Wellbeing which provided information on current trends, patterns and risk factors associated with infant mortality in Manchester. The report also highlighted the increasing level of infant mortality rates since 2011-2013 following a long period of year on year reductions. The report included for approval, the final version of the five year, multi-agency strategy to reduce infant mortality and support those affected by baby loss. The strategy also contributes to the Manchester Population Health Plan “First 1000 days” priority.

 

The Chair invited questions.

 

A board member referred to modifiable risk factors listed in the report and asked and what work was being done to address other modifiable risk factors such as consanguineous marriage.

 

It was reported that consanguineous marriage is an issue in areas in Greater Manchester and a genetic counselling referral service is available at hospitals where a family history is identified as a modifiable factor.

 

A board member referred to the importance of anti-natal care and asked what was the level of non-take up and how this could be delivered as part of an inclusive health programme.

It was reported that an inclusive health programme will include access to good quality anti-natal care on time to reducing the risk of infant mortality. The late booking of anti-natal appointments prevents pregnancy checks taking place t help to detect issues early in pregnancy and allow action to be taken.

 

A board member referred to the target date for the rollout of the Baby Clear Programme and asked if this was still on track to start in March 2019.

The report was welcomed for the reference made to the importance of housing conditions in particular safe sleeping arrangements and housing conditions provided by private landlords and in temporary accommodation.

 

It was reported that the rollout of the Baby Clear programme is being negotiated across Greater Manchester and is expected to be introduced in a phased approach. It was anticipated that the north Manchester phase could be adapted and be in place by the end of March 2019 with smoking cessation services in south and central Manchester by the end of July. Services and advice for cessation of smoking in pregnancy will continueto be offered to pregnant mothers through brief interventions and it was anticipated that full city widecoverage will be in place by the end of July 2019.

 

The board was informed that safe sleeping was crucial for baby health. Many cases of baby death had been attributed to a baby sleeping in the same bed as its parent. Other factors included poverty, poor quality accommodation, overcrowded rooms, fuel poverty and damp properties raise the risk of serious illness in children and increased infant mortality. 

 

Decisions

Manchester and Greater Manchester Local Industrial Strategies pdf icon PDF 235 KB

The report of Deputy Chief Executive is enclosed.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Board received a report from the Deputy Chief Executive which provided an update on the development of the Manchester and Greater Manchester Local Industrial Strategy and the respective engagement approaches. The Strategies support the delivery of the Our Manchester Strategy and the Greater Manchester Strategy by setting out priorities to deliver a more inclusive city and city region. To support the report, the Board received a presentation “Developing Manchester’s Industrial Strategy”.

 

The Chair invited questions and comments on the Strategy.

 

A member referred to the research to be commissioned relating to a Low Productivity Review and made the point that rather than taking the view of this area in a productivity sense could focus be given to developing existing foundational economies and industries as areas of growth and as a benefit in and of themselves. The presenting officer was asked what views they have on this suggestion and where that focus may lead the review.

 

A member commented that it was important for the strategy to recognise the work within the childcare and young people sector and the importance of enabling those involved to develop their skills and develop the value of their work.

 

The Chair referred to the Greater Manchester Independent Prosperity Review and the range of experience of the panel members involved. The Chair stated that evidence suggests that much of the employment created over the past decade is insecure, part-time work. This situation presents an area of challenge within the foundation economy in work sectors such as social care to improve wage levels, conditions of service and productivity factors. The Chair stated that the Greater Manchester Local Industrial Strategy is an agreement with the Government, however the delivery of the strategy would be hindered due to a dysfunctional national educational skills system that will require further negotiation with the Government. The Chair suggested that it was likely that other issues would be raised from the evidence produced by the review which will not form part of the agreed local industrial strategy. As a result, the Local Industrial Strategy was unlikely to form the economic development policy at a local level or GM level and further challenges would be presented outside of this.

 

A member questioned what the strategy will mean for people living within Manchester

 

In response to the points raised it was reported that there are challenges within the sectors and occupations referred to and it was recognised that there were fewer mechanisms to build upon social value work in those areas. It was reported that the Council is supporting the GM Good Employment Charter and an Ethical Care Charter had helped to take this work forward. Work on social care was currently underway involving external partners which has focussed on the wider benefits as well as productivity. It was reported that the strategy was ongoing and would reflect the responses on productivity sectors and foundation economies and will recognise many areas of work across the city. It was reported that the communications team is  ...  view the full minutes text for item 7.

Additional documents:

The CAG first met in December 2017 and is made up from a wide range of stakeholders from across health related services and interested organisations.

 

The Chair invited questions.

 

Board members welcomed the work and activities being undertaken by the Clinical Advisory Group and commented that it was important to ensure that connections were established with other organisations to maintain communication and avoid duplication of work streams. Reference was also made on the broader representation on CAG, in particular the inclusion of patient groups and university student representatives. The point was also made that involving representatives with relevant skills on particular matters would help to use the Group’s time efficiently.  The Chair of MHCC highlighted the need to ensure that there was a unified approach and that it would be useful to have further discussions about the interface with MHCC Clinical Committee.
