Results will be fed back to the Health and WellBeing Board and will help the Board to determine what values are important to people in Solihull.

PROTOCOL BETWEEN SOLIHULL SAFEGUARDING ADULTS BOARD AND SOLIHULL HEALTH AND WELLBEING BOARD – a protocol has been developed between the H&WBB and the Adult Safeguarding Board which details how the two boards will work together to address safeguarding matter and promote the wellbeing of adults at risk, nothing that at this point in time the SAB is on a non statutory footing but that this would change when the new Care Bill came into being. It is also an attempt to ensure that the two Boards do not duplicate matters but seek to share information for her benefit of all. An individual is to be identified from the Safeguarding Adults Board and the Health and Wellbeing Board to co-ordinate relevant safeguarding action.

TRANSFER OF CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S TRUST BOARD RESPONSIBILITIES – It is proposed that the Children and Young People’s Trust Board Responsibilities be transferred to the Health and WellBeing Board. The H&WBB are to discuss the implications at their meeting on the 1st April 2014. There was a particular concern that Children and Young people could be simply an ‘add on’ and the need to ensure effective integration was noted by all.

STROKE REVIEW – The Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG Manager presented the national agenda for Stroke Care and how they were currently reviewing the entire pathway from primary prevention to end of life.
