Workstream 3: Staying Healthy, Safe & Well meeting

Workstream 3 meeting, 25th September 2018

Present: Jacquie Knott, Angela Keighley, Max Clark, Joel Mayo, Roger Blake, Ian Dunstan & Andrea Clark

Transformation funding. How can the project be led by the Workstream? Ace have recently submitted a bid to run a year long project to increase the uptake in Annual Health Checks. Ace were successful with their bid, and will start work on this project in October. This funding was provided by both Ipswich & East Suffolk CCG & West Suffolk CCG.

The project will then be led by the Workstream, with additional input from the Liaison Nurses who work in doctors surgeries. There will be 4 half-day sessions to co-produce this project.

We discussed how we get the most activity from the co-production funding in 2018-20. The group decided they would like to have 4 physical meetings a year, as well as using Basecamp to collaborate outside of meetings. The workstream will continue to use the Partnership website to host information and stories from the group.

Joel talked about wanting to do more work about keeping healthy, such as using gyms and eating healthily. We will look to incorporate this into the Transformation Fund Health Check project.

  • We talked about co-producing the Health Check project, and discussed initial ideas:
  • Angela talked about how she was taught how to cook, and now she cooks from scratch.
  • Joel talked about how he is unsure what to cook when his support workers aren’t there.
  • We talked about producing a film for the training, using stark figures from the LeDeR report. “I am more likely to face more health issues in my life, because of…” “My life expectancy is 20 years below the general population”
  • Making it clear who is responsible for what when it comes to Annual Health Checks. Support providers (managers and staff), families, individuals.

Roger updated the group on the latest from Ipswich & Colchester hospitals, such as the reasonable adjustment tool, which has been made simpler for people to fill in when they are in hospital. Roger has also added not meeting the Accessible Information Standard to the hospital risk register, which means it will be discussed at Board level.

Jacquie updated the group on LeDeR, and the latest actions from the steering group.

One of the strategy Champions, Angela continuously listens and responds to the latest health news. She often makes drawings such as the brilliantly colourful example below.
