The Chief Finance Officer submitted a report relative to the revenue budget position at 30 November 2019 and the projected year-end position for the year ended 31 March 2020.

The overall revenue position for the HSCP for the year-to-date and projected outturn for 2019/20 was an underspend, as detailed in the report, prior to the transfer of balances to General and Earmarked Reserves at the financial year-end.  The key pressures were highlighted in section 4 of the report.

The revenue budget position of the HSCP and Health for the financial period 1 April to 30 November 2019 and the year-end position was detailed in Appendices 1 to 4 of the report.  The revenue budget position of Adult Social Care and ‘other delegated services’ for the period 1 April to 6 December 2019 and the year-end position to 31 March 2020 was detailed in appendices 5 to 7 of the report.  Appendices 8 and 9 of the report provided a reconciliation of the main budget adjustments applied this current financial year and Appendix 10 to the report detailed the projected movement in reserves.

The report also provided information on Scottish Government funding 2019/20; reserves; and the Living Wage increase for 2019/20.

Members discussed the continued pressures within the care at home service and how this was a national issue.  It was proposed that the Chief Officer establish what had been done and was being done in other IJBs around the care at home service and arrange for members to be informed at a future development session.  This was agreed.

Members noted their appreciation for the work done by staff in relation to delayed discharges and pressures placed on the care at home service.

The Chief Officer submitted a report providing an update on performance benchmarking analysis against national indicators carried out in December 2019 and highlighting work being carried out locally to better manage demand and improve outcomes.

The report intimated that Renfrewshire HSCP measured performance against the other HSCPs within the GG&C area, being East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire, Glasgow City, Inverclyde and West Dunbartonshire, and also within a ‘family group’ as determined by Healthcare Improvement Scotland, being Stirling, Clackmannanshire, Dumfries & Galloway, Falkirk, Fife, South Ayrshire, South Lanarkshire and West Lothian.  

The analysis was based on the most recent National Core Suite of Integration Indicators data, as detailed in appendices 1 and 2 of the report, and the most up-to-date data from the Scottish Public Health Observatory (ScotPHO) Health and Wellbeing Profiles, as detailed in appendices 3 and 4 of the report.  Results from the 2019 survey were expected to be published in April 2020 and a report detailing the full comparison of results would be submitted to a future meeting of the IJB.

It was noted that through the emerging transformation programme, the HSCP senior management team would work with partners to identify and implement evidence-based approaches that sought to improve outcomes for individuals and communities in Renfrewshire.

DECIDED: That the contents of the report be noted.
Report by Chief Officer.

The Chief Officer submitted a report providing an update on the expanding Change and Improvement Programme.

The report intimated that the IJB approved the Medium-term Financial Plan for 2020/21 to 2025/26 which provided an update on the current assumptions and projected funding gap for the IJB over the next five years and also set out the IJB’s two-tiered model for delivering the Plan by addressing short-term financial pressures whilst in parallel introducing a more strategic approach, focussing on the financial sustainability of the organisation in the medium-term.

Section 4 of the report detailed the Tier 1 savings identified by the HSCP amounting to approximately £1.9 million for 2020/21 and 2021/22.
  
A key element of the Tier 2 approach was the implementation of the HSCP’s Transformation Programme which would enable a strategic approach to be taken to the prioritisation of transformational activity, the review of current service provision and the design of future, innovative service models.  A Programme Board had been established to provide governance and oversight of progress.  Through implemented governance structures, all transformational activity would reflect and contribute to the delivery of four guiding principles, as detailed in paragraph 5.4 of the report.

It was proposed that the Chief Officer submit a report to the IJB in September 2020 providing an update on digital opportunities available.  This was agreed.

DECIDED: 

(a) That the content of the report be noted;

(b) That the Tier 1 savings set out in section 4 of the report be approved;

(c) That the progress made in engaging with stakeholders on the scope and structure of the Transformation Programme, in line with the Tier 2 medium-term approach, be noted; 

(d) That it be noted that regular updates on progress would be submitted to meetings of the IJB seeking approval for any material changes to scope of this evolving programme; and

(e) That the Chief Officer submit a report to the IJB in September 2020 providing an update on digital opportunities available.
Report by Chief Officer.

The Chief Officer submitted a report relative to the Renfrewshire Alcohol and Drug Partnership (ADP) Annual Report 2018/19, a copy of which was appended to the report.

The report intimated that the ADP had key responsibility for implementing the National Policy Framework and driving forward local action to reduce the impact of alcohol and drugs.  ADPs in Scotland produced annual reports for submission to the Scottish Government and to ensure consistency, the Scottish Government had developed a standard template designed to allow consistent reporting on how ADPs were meeting national and local priorities.

The ADP Annual Report set out the financial framework used to deliver local and national outcomes ranging from prevention and early intervention initiatives to treatment and support services which were recovery and outcome-focused.  It also reflected on progress achieved against Ministerial priorities, outlining improvement goals.

 

The national frameworks for both drug and alcohol had recently been refreshed and it was envisaged that new reporting procedures would be developed by the Scottish Government from 2020.

DECIDED: That the contents of the report be noted.

Report by Chief Officer.

The Chief Officer submitted a report relative to loneliness and social isolation which had been identified as a key theme in Renfrewshire’s Health and Wellbeing Survey 2017/18.

The report intimated that the Strategic Planning Group established a Short-life Working Group which explored how loneliness and social isolation could best be addressed locally and a copy of the group’s report was appended to the report.

The report outlined how the group’s findings and recommendations would be taken forward. 

One of the key recommendations of the report was to identify a ‘champion’ to highlight and promote work around loneliness and social isolation and Councillor Adam-McGregor requested that she be nominated as this ‘champion’.  The Head of Strategic Planning and Health Improvement intimated that she would advise the group lead, Stephen McLellan, Recovery Across Mental Health (RAMH), of this nomination.

DECIDED:

(a) That the content of the Short-life Working Group’s report, as appended to the report, be noted; 

(b) That the approach outlined be agreed; and

(c) That the Head of Strategic Planning and Health Improvement advise the group lead, Stephen McLellan, Recovery Across Mental Health (RAMH), of Councillor Adam-McGregor’s request to be nominated as the ‘champion’ to highlight and promote work around loneliness and social isolation.

The Chief Officer submitted a report relative to the preparation underway and key dates for the joint inspection of adult support and protection arrangements in the Renfrewshire partnership area.

This inspection was being carried out at the request of Scottish Ministers and was part of a programme of scrutiny and assurance activity which would take place over 2020 and 2021 in all partnership areas in Scotland, except the six partnership areas which had been included in the first independent scrutiny of adult support and protection practice in 2017.

The inspection would focus on two main areas of key adult support and protection processes and leadership for adult support and protection.  A Core Steering Group had been established to oversee preparation for the joint inspection and the planned timeline for the inspection was detailed in the report.
