3

There was submitted a report by the Community Link Team Manager, Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership relative to the establishment of a Renfrewshire Integration Network.

The report advised that Renfrewshire’s strong history of welcoming people from other countries was acknowledged and welcomed by the Community Planning Partnership and recent developments at both local and national level had highlighted the need for a cohesive network to continue to support this work.

Integration Networks in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area had been established over the years to support the idea of active and participative citizenship and it was proposed that an Integration Network was established in Renfrewshire.

Report by Head of Planning & Health Improvement, Renfrewshire Health & Social Care Partnership.
4

There was submitted a report by the Head of Planning & Health Improvement, Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership relative to an update on the progress of Brighter Renfrewshire Alcohol Awareness Week (BRAW).

The report advised of the BRAW activities to date and that BRAW was now a recognisable brand with an associated logo and campaign materials. Renfrewshire ADP had allocated funding to develop a Festive BRAW campaign to highlight alcohol awareness messages. Festive BRAW would focus on the development of health information resources for distribution throughout Renfrewshire, rather than granting funding to local groups or services.

The report intimated that Renfrewshire Licensing Board had proposed extending the terminal hours for sales of alcohol over the festive period 2016. As a statutory consultee, Renfrewshire HSCP had responded highlighting concerns relating to the extension of terminal hours and to the increase in alcohol consumption associated with increased availability. The HSCP response specified that extensions to the availability of alcohol via the extension to terminal hours was incongruent with initiatives which aimed to reduce the harms caused by excess alcohol consumption such as BRAW and the Safe Bus. The letter was attached as an appendix to this report.

Discussion took place on targets and performance and the adverse effect that the proposed extension of terminal hours would have over the festive period on people’s health and wellbeing.  It was agreed that a letter would be written to the Licensing Board asking for an opportunity to present to the Board.  It was also agreed that the performance indicators and the community level awareness of alcohol would be put on the agenda for the next cycle of Local Area Committee meetings.

DECIDED:

(a)   That the BRAW update be noted;

(b)    That the Board’s representation to Renfrewshire Licensing Board relating to the Festive Terminal Hours as contained within the appendix to the report, be agreed;

(c)   That it be agreed that the Board write to Renfrewshire Licensing Board to ask for an opportunity to present on the harm caused by excess alcohol consumption; and

(d)   That it be agreed that Renfrewshire HSCP and Police Scotland prepare a joint report/presentation for submission to the next cycle of Local Area Committees.

Presentation and report by the Health Improvement Lead and the Public Health Pharmacist, Renfrewshire Health & Social Care Partnership,

5

There was submitted a report and presentation by the Head of Planning & Health Improvement, Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership relative to the ‘Smokefree Pharmacy Shared Care Pilot’ and the Making Advice Work Financial Literacy Project both of which had been carried out in Lloyds Tannahill pharmacy in Ferguslie Park and supported by the RHSCP Public Health pharmacist.

The report advised that both projects had demonstrated that community pharmacy were ideally placed to support vulnerable people and reduce barriers to improving health outcomes in our most deprived communities.

DECIDED:   That the outcomes of both the Smokefree Pharmacy Shared Care and the Making Advice Work projects be noted.

Report by Community Link Team Manager, Renfrewshire Health & Social Care Partnership.
6

There was submitted a report by the Community Link Team Manager, Renfrewshire Health & Social Care Partnership relative to loneliness and isolation.

 The report advised that Renfrewshire’s Community Plan and the Health and Social Care Partnership’s Strategic Plan both recognised the increasing population of older people and the need for preventative and responsive activities and services to maintain good health and independence for as long as possible. It was proposed that community research was carried out in a number of small localities or neighbourhoods, with a view to getting some useful evidence to develop practical approaches. It was noted that there were already a number of good organisations and initiatives supporting older people, however there was also a recognition that the people most at risk of loneliness and/or isolation might not be linked into services or activities and there was a need to develop ways of identifying those individuals and supporting them in the most appropriate way.

DECIDED:   That the need for work to tackle loneliness and isolation in Renfrewshire be noted.

Report by Service Planning & Policy Development Manager, Renfrewshire Health & Social Care Partnership.
