7.3 Matters Arising

7.4 Presentation from Derrick Jones, Chief Executive, Ceredigion Local Health Board

A presentation was given regarding the work of the Ceredigion Local Health Board

There are clear links between the work of the Local Health Board and the Health, Social Care and Wellbeing Strategy and ultimately Ceredigion 2020.
How can we ensure that all organisations link to the objectives of Ceredigion 2020 and take a role in developing the Strategy?
How do we ensure that individual organisational priorites are linked?
There are many shared priotities and all organisations need to agree and to work individually to deliver these priorities.
Organisational Strategties need to be aligned to deliver the Vision
Need to develop inter-connections between organisational Strategies and for organisations to 'sign-up' to their part of the Action Plans, without conflicting with National priorities etc.

What are we aiming for in Years 1,2 and 3?
- will depend on joint-working
- joint funding
- identifying Lead Bodies

Ceredigion 2020 should be used to support projects across the County - projects should support the priorities and clearly demonstrate links

Look into the possibility of pooling budgets - e.g. extra funding - discussing ways of spending / developing new projects etc.

1. Decision:
Organisations to share their Strategies for awareness raising
Please e-mail to Lowri Edwards

2. Decision:
Thematic Groups to work towards identifying individual organisations' roles
- To report back at the next meeting

3. Decision:
Develop Action Plans, identifying Lead Bodies and Partners and funding availability etc.

7.5 Update Reports from the Thematic Groups

Active Wellbeing

Economically Successful

High Quality Environment

Next steps for the Thematic Groups are to develop Action Plans to support their Theme within the Strategy, linking with Partners and identifying resource.

To note the position

7.6 Partnership Integration Group (PIG) Update (Mark Elliott – verbal report) - including Draft Remit and matrix.
Need to develop the framework between the PIG and the Thematic Groups to identify priorities etc.

The matrix shows shared key priorities and where they fit in and to establish where there are gaps that need to be addressed

Thematic Groups to look at the rationalisation of Partnerships
- to align the work to make it more efficient and to reduce burden

- Thematic Groups working to finalise the Strategy document (nearly complete) – final task is to check that all linkages are present
