The Chief Finance Officer submitted a report relative to the proposed revision to the IJB’s Reserves Policy.  

The report intimated that the current IJB Reserves Policy had been agreed at the meeting of the IJB held on 24 November 2017.  Audit Scotland, in their Renfrewshire Integration Joint Board Annual Audit Report 2017/18, had recommended that the IJB consider updating its Reserves Policy to set out a minimum as well as a maximum reserves level.  

Section 6.2 of the IJB Reserves Policy had been updated to reflect this recommendation and a copy of the revised IJB Reserves Policy formed the appendix to the report.

It was proposed that the recommendation from Audit Scotland be not implemented at this time; that the recommendation from Audit Scotland be noted and kept under consideration and revisited in six months; and that the Chair raise this matter with integration colleagues in the Scottish Government to enable them to offer a view and guidance on this matter.  This was agreed.

DECIDED: 

(a) That the recommendation from Audit Scotland be not implemented at this time; 

(b) That the recommendation from Audit Scotland be noted and kept under consideration and revisited in six months; and

 

(c) That the Chair raise this matter with integration colleagues in the Scottish Government to enable them to offer a view and guidance on this matter.

Under reference to item 6 of the Minute of the meeting of the IJB held on 14 September 2018 the Chief Officer submitted a report providing an update on the HSCP’s evolving Change and Improvement Programme including the service reviews underway.

The report intimated that the Change and Improvement Programme was being delivered through three workstreams, 1. optimising joint and integrated working and shifting the balance of care; 2. statutory requirements, national policy and compliance; and 3. service reviews to support the delivery of our market facilitation statement and strategic and financial plans. 

Some members expressed concern regarding the number of external consultants appointed to lead the service reviews; whether in the future, the HSCP would be in a position to respond to situations in-house; and around the matter of rolling-out ‘hospital at home type services’ currently underway in Lothian and Edinburgh.  The Chief Officer advised that the HSCP was currently looking at a number of options.

DECIDED: That the content of the report be noted.

The performance dashboard which summarised progress formed Appendix 1 to the report and the full scorecard which updated all performance measures formed Appendix 2 to the report.

There were 64 performance indicators of which 40 had targets set against them.  Performance status was assessed as either red, more than 10% variance from target; amber, within 10% variance of target; or green, on or above target.  The dashboard indicated that currently 24 performance measures were data only, 7 had red status, 12 had amber status and 21 had green status.

DECIDED: That the Performance Management Mid-year Report 2018/19 for Renfrewshire HSCP be approved.
Report by Chief Social Work Officer.

The Chief Social Work Officer (CSWO) submitted a report relative to his annual report which he had submitted to the meeting of Renfrewshire Council held on 27 September 2018.  The Public Bodies (Joint Working) Scotland Act 2014 established the CSWO as part of the HSCP governance structure in order to carry out those statutory duties in relation to social work services provided by those partnerships.  

The annual reports of all CSWOs were submitted to the Office of the Chief Social Work Advisor at the Scottish Government in order that a national overview report could be produced.

The report provided a summary of activity relating to the role of the Chief Social Work Officer during 2017/18.

DECIDED:
 
(a) That the key activities outlined in the report be noted;

The Chief Officer submitted a report relative to the climate change report submitted to the Scottish Government in line with recent legislation on compliance of the climate change duties.

The report intimated that the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 and the subsequent Climate Change (Duties of Public Bodies: Reporting Requirements) (Scotland) Order 2015 required significant public bodies, of which the IJB was one, to prepare a report on their compliance with climate change duties.  IJBs were required to submit the report to the Scottish Government on or before 30 November 2018.

The report was a standard template and as a consequence related to the policies, procedures and services of the local authority and NHS Board rather than the IJB, and a copy of the climate change report was appended to the report.  

DECIDED: That the content of the report be approved.
Report by Chief Officer.

The Chief Officer submitted a report relative to the Renfrewshire HSCP Winter Plan 2018/19. 

The report intimated that Health Boards and IJBs had received guidance from the Scottish Government to support planning and preparation for winter 2018/19. Health Boards required to be satisfied that potential disruption to NHS services, patients and carers was minimised. HSCPs in NHSGG&C had produced Winter Plans to support the NHSGG&C Board Winter Plan. The Winter Plan for Renfrewshire had been produced by the HSCP in collaboration with acute services and Renfrewshire Council. The final draft of the Winter Plan formed the appendix to the report. 

Discussion took place concerning the key action ‘Discharges at weekends and bank holidays’ and the wording used in the response column in connection with nursing homes.  It was proposed that the Chief Officer break this information down into three points of (i) numbers restricted by registration; (ii) the ‘rate and pace’ of admissions; and (iii) information around what to consider when choosing a nursing home and that the amended Renfrewshire HSCP Winter Assurance Framework be issued to members of the IJB. This was agreed.
