Report from Solihull Together Board – 30 Nov 17

Meeting Name: Solihull Together Board (STB)

Date of Meeting: 30th November 2017

Key Points of Wider Interest Discussed:  

Delayed Transfers of Care

Solihull’s figures for delayed transfer of care from hospital, (DTOC) continue to show a significant improvement. The Board recognised the success of the system, through the SupportUHome project, in achieving the national DTOC target and in particular the role of frontline staff at HEFT and Solihull Council. This is a huge achievement, particularly as many parts of the country are seeing big increases in DTOC.

Birmingham and Solihull Sustainability and Transformation Partnership

There is a continued focus on Solihull as a place and the benefits of an integrated approach to delivering health and care services. Birmingham and Solihull STP and the combined Birmingham and Solihull CCGs are both focussed on delivery within a locality wherever possible. Through the Solihull Together programme we are a step ahead. Our integrated approach has also resulted in approval of the Better Care Fund (BCF) plan. In the new year, the Board will be further exploring the options to move towards an accountable care partnership.

Learning from the past to inform the future

The Board agreed the need for Solihull to be a learning ‘system’ which means we review both success and failures to learn the lessons and incorporate these in our approaches for the future.
