Minutes:

The Director of Population Planning, NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), submitted a report that shared the Left Shift Blueprint approach and document with the Health and Wellbeing Board in addition to outlining the progress made with this initiative to date. The Health and Wellbeing Board are asked to sign up to both the concept of the Left Shift Blueprint and the Strategic indicators and support delivery of the plan.

 

The following were in attendance:

 

-  Jenny Cooke, Director of Population Health Planning, NHS Leeds CCG

-  Dr Bryan Power, Clinical Lead for Long Term Conditions, NHS Leeds CCG

-  Lindsay Springall, Head of Pathway Integration Long Term Conditions, NHS Leeds CCG

 

The Director of Population Health Planning introduced the report, and presented a short film ‘Mark’s Story’, part of the ‘How does it feel for me?’ series produced by HealthWatch Leeds, in which Mark described his experiences of the LEEDs (Learning, Empowering, and Enabling Diabetes Self-Management) Programme – an example of the Left Shift Blueprint in long term conditions and the benefits of investing in structured education.

 

As part of the ongoing blueprint work, key objectives for the Long Term Conditions team working with partners represented on the Health and Wellbeing Board were set out as follows:

 

1)  Working to facilitate increased healthy lifestyle opportunities; and

2)  Increasing referrals into NDPP (National Diabetes Prevention Programme) / Structured Education, which have fallen as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The Clinical Lead for Long Term Conditions described what the Left Shift Blueprint might mean for patients, including:

 

·  Putting people in control of their conditions, and focusing on what matters to people, including developing proactive support plans for self-management with a patients personalised ‘goal’ at the centre;

·  Reducing health inequalities, by targeting resources to populations at increased risk and adapting approaches and services to suit the needs of different communities;

·  Supporting people through social prescribing and more regular reviews of medication;

·  Increased options for advice and support at a local community level and fewer repeated visits to hospital.

 

For clinicians, the impacts of the Left Shift Blueprint were described as follows:

 

·  More integrated working practices, including increased use of digital technologies such as ‘Virtual Wards’ for a number of services, to reduce the number of admissions;

·  Building capacity and capability in primary care settings through more activity in community settings and pharmacies, and increased focus on self-management, meaning better access to services when required;

·  Understanding and agreeing health priorities with local communities and targeting resources to those most at risk;

·  Shared decision making with patients, working ‘with’ rather than ‘to’.

 

Members discussed a number of matters, including:

 

·  It was recognised that 80% of an individuals’ health is impacted outside of health services, and therefore the benefits of programmes to improve wellbeing and lifestyle, for communities and individuals, are well evidenced;

·  Members highlighted the challenge of identifying measures for mental health services, due to the most appropriate approach in certain circumstances being specialist care as quickly as possible, which may be  ...  view the full minutes text for item 37.

Joint Strategic Assessment 2021 pdf icon PDF 411 KB

To consider the report of the Head of Intelligence and Policy, Leeds City Council, that sets out initial proposals to produce the Joint Strategic Assessment, and updates Health and Wellbeing Board on the work that has taken place to date.

Minutes:

The Head of Intelligence and Policy, Leeds City Council, submitted a report that sets out initial proposals to produce the Joint Strategic Assessment (JSA), and updates Health and Wellbeing Board on the work that has taken place to date.

 

The following were in attendance:

 

-  Simon Foy, Head of Intelligence and Policy, Leeds City Council

-  Tony Cooke, Chief Officer, Health Partnerships

 

The Head of Intelligence and Policy introduced the report and delivered a PowerPoint presentation, which set out some of the emerging headlines and lines of enquiry as follows:

 

·  The school age population growing and becoming more diverse - increasingly concentrated in deprived areas. Nationally, 18% of those under the age of 16 are living in relative poverty, compared to 24% in Leeds, and 38% in Bradford;

·  Covid-19 data shows link between deaths and deprivation. Poor living and working conditions increase both exposure to Covid-19 and other illnesses – frontline workers, people unable to work from home, housing-density/condition, use of public transport;

·  The Leeds vaccine programme shows similar associations between deprivation, ethnicity and lower vaccine uptake;

·  Reduced educational attainment at pre-school and primary, particularly for poorest children, and growing concerns around child and adolescent mental health;

·  Prior to Covid-19, there was a long-period of economic growth and expansion, strengths in key sectors, knowledge-based jobs, relatively high-levels of employment. However, since March 2020, trends show stalling growth/low productivity, and many of new jobs in Leeds are low-skilled, low-paid work in consumer services;

·  Positive impact of Covid-19 on climate change due to reduced travel and home working, however, there is uncertainty around the medium to long term impact on travel behaviour.

 

Members discussed a number of matters, including:

 

·  Members identified the experiences of children and young people, particularly the impact of COVID-19 on education and employment, as a key focus moving forward;

·  It was noted that further analysis to assess the impact of each of the key themes on BAME, LGBT and gypsy traveller communities should be undertaken;

·  Members recognised the significance of the findings and recommendations of the Marmot Review into health inequalities in England ‘10 Years On’ report, and the subsequent ‘Build Back Fairer’ report, for development of local needs assessments moving forward;

·  Members noted the changes to use of transport as a result of the pandemic, largely due to home working, and were keen to understand if these changes were accelerated by the pandemic and likely to remain. Members were advised that it is expected that transport patterns will return to a ‘new normal’, due to a significant shift in transport modality and a clear focus on active travel. It was also noted that travel behaviour and public transport availability has a great impact on access to employment.

 

RESOLVED –

 

a)  That Members comments in relation to the proposed approach to the JSA be noted;

b)  That a further report be submitted in due course, as the development of the JSA is progressed.
