The Board received an update on the progress being made to develop a single system Operational Plan for 2019/20 for the Frimley Health & Care Integrated Care System (ICS) and the arrangements being put in place to develop a new operating model for Continuing Health Care and Section 117 aftercare across East Berkshire.


The Chair commented on the importance of aligning the next version of the draft Operational Plan with the key priorities in the recently published NHS Long Term Plan.  A delegation from Slough would be visiting Wigan in the near future to learn from their Integrated Care System and an update would be provided to members.  Fiona Edwards had had been announced as the new leader for the Frimley Health and Care ICS.  She would also continue with her role as Chief Executive of Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.  It was agreed to invite Ms Edwards to a future of the Board.


The Board discussed various matters relating to the progress of the ICS including the priority given to prevention in the draft Operational Plan, the role of the Alliance Board and the engagement of local authority partners in the ICS.  Whilst it was recognised that good progress had been made in a number of areas, more work was needed to ensure that funding followed the agreed priorities such as prevention and tackling health inequalities.

Slough Clinical Commissioning Group Annual Report 2017/18 pdf icon PDF 76 KB

Additional documents:


The Board received the Slough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Annual Report for 2017/18.  This was the final annual report for Slough as an independent CCG following the merger which formed East Berkshire CCG on 1st April 2018.


Dr Jim O’Donnell, Clinical Chair of Slough CCG, summarised the key aspects of the Annual Report which included evidence of improved quality of services to local people resulting in NHS England awarding an ‘outstanding’ assessment.  The rationale for the move to create one CCG for East Berkshire was to build upon the success of developing links between practices, the local population and partners such as Slough Borough Council.  Partnership working was a strong theme in the CCGs work, including through the contribution to the development to the Frimley Health & Care Integrated Care System.


The Board welcomed the annual report and commented on the positive work that had been done.  Members emphasised the importance of ensuring Slough’s view came through strongly in the wider East Berkshire model, particularly in areas such as tackling health inequalities which was a key priority of the Wellbeing Board.  Dr O’Donnell confirmed that health inequalities was prioritised in CCG plans and explained some of the areas where significant improvements had been made in outcomes such as stroke services.  There was a discussion about how partners could be actively involved in the annual planning of the CCG and it was agreed that there should be engagement in the summer during the commissioning cycle.


At the conclusion of the discussion, the report was noted.


Resolved –  That the Slough Clinical Commissioning Group Annual Report 2017/18 be noted.
