3 If so, to formally pass the following resolution:-
RESOLVED – That the press and public be excluded from the meeting during consideration of the following parts of the agenda designated as containing exempt information on the grounds that it is likely, in view of the nature of the business to be transacted or the nature of the proceedings, that if members of the press and public were present there would be disclosure to them of exempt information, as follows:-

Population Health Management Principles (PHM) - A query was raised regarding PHM and seeking support to pause the process of recognising Accountable Care systems until the outcome of two Judicial Reviews were known was raised.
In response, assurance was provided that the local Leeds Health and Care Plan had adopted a ‘bottom up trajectory’ approach through Local Care Partnerships and there would be no imposition of a national model. Additionally, health and care sector partners were keen to continue the Leeds integrated working approach which would allow the sector to monitor and challenge provision through collaborative practices; keeping in mind that the sector needed to understand those areas where it was required to procure services in order to provide the best service and value for money.
RESOLVED – To note the matter raised.
To approve the minutes of the previous Health and Wellbeing Board meeting held 23rd November 2017 as a correct record.
An amendment was made to Minute No.40 ‘Making a Breakthrough’, paragraph 2 Air Quality, to reference Chronic Vascular Diseases
RESOLVED – That, subject to the amendment outlined above, the minutes of the meeting held 23rd November 2017 were agreed as a correct record.
To consider the report of the Chief Officer, Health Partnerships, which provides a round-up of activity commissioned or directed by the Health and Wellbeing Board and guided by the Leeds Health and Wellbeing Strategy over the last 12 months.
The Chief Officer, Health Partnerships, submitted a report introducing a report on a review of the strategic direction provided by the Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) and providing a look back over the last 12 months of HWB and partnership activity.
The Health Partnerships Manager introduced the report, which included a summary of a HWB self-assessment workshop undertaken in January 2018. This information would inform the future work planning and focus of the HWB into 2018/19. Three key issues for further focus were identified as:
- Mental health
- The workforce
- Hearing the voice of the community.
During discussions the Board considered the following:
· Previous discussions with the West Yorkshire & Harrogate Health and Care Partnership which sought to provide high support and high challenge that partners adopted the same or similar approach to health and care as Leeds as highlighted below;
· Success was predicated on building good working relationships between partners, building challenge into the process and encouraging strong, well-engaged communities within the process;
· Welcomed the sense of ‘team Leeds’ within the document which was evidenced by the well-connected approach to the health and care sector and service users;
· Acknowledged the work done by Board partners which had ensured that the HWB priorities were encompassed within their individual services and service plans.
a) To note the collated findings of the report
b) To note the comments made during discussions intended to provide steer, commission or to clarify any future action to make further progress towards the outcomes and priorities of the Leeds Health and Wellbeing Strategy
c) That those matters identified during discussions be included within the HWB work plan as appropriate
To consider the joint report of the Chief Officer, Health Partnerships and the Head of LCC Intelligence and Policy which presents a forward-looking, partnership approach to the ownership, production and utilisation of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment, considering the wider determinants of health and wellbeing and seeking to facilitate policy linkages across Best Council and Best City Priorities.
The Board considered the joint report of the Chief Officer, Health Partnerships and the Head of LCC Intelligence and Policy setting out proposals for a broader, forward-looking approach to the ownership, production and utilisation of the Joint Strategic (Needs) Assessment, which will consider the wider determinants of health and wellbeing and facilitate policy linkages across the health and care system in Leeds.
The Chief Officer, Health Partnerships, introduced the report which highlighted the HWB’s statutory responsibility to produce a JSNA to inform the direction and effectiveness of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy. The proposals sought to embed the ‘Leeds approach’ into the JSNA; be more inclusive of the Third Sector and communities; and included a name change to “Joint Strategic Assessment” (JSA).
The Board heard that officers had researched examples of good practice adopted by other areas of the country and went on to view a short video presentation entitled “Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015” created by the Welsh Government to provide advice on the aims of the Act. The video was presented as the basis for discussion on a future approach to publicise the aims of the JSA and more widely - the work of the HWB; the Leeds Health & Wellbeing Strategy (HWBS) and Leeds Health and Care Plan. The Board supported the following principles around engagement and made the following comments:
- Emphasis on self-management and care
- Show what Leeds’ health and care systems could look like and provide context for the individual
- Sets out a snapshot of need and reflect more of the ‘one Leeds’ approach
Discussion identified the following matters associated with the JSA for further consideration:
· The context should reference Leeds’ focus on secure and happy childhoods to ensure the best start for children and young people
· To reference using community assets within the longer term service delivery proposals
· To be a toolkit for the whole City, including businesses and residents, not just the local health and care partners
· Acknowledged the need to broaden the scope of data collection in order to better inform the Leeds Health and Wellbeing Strategy and encompass the wider determinants of health
a) To note the contents of the report and the comments made during discussions on the Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 video and the refreshed Joint Strategic Needs Assessment;
b) To endorse the change from a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment to a Joint Strategic Assessment (JSA), reflecting the ‘working with’ approach and reflecting strengths and assets based approach developed in communities and neighbourhoods;
c) To endorse the extension of the JSA to cover the wider determinants of health in line with the refreshed Health and Wellbeing Strategy/Leeds Plan, Best Council/Best City priorities (paragraphs 3.1-3.3);
d) To actively support and contribute to a strong partnership approach to the JSA (paragraphs 3.6-3.10);
e) To agree the establishment of a partnership task and finish group to drive the JSA (paragraphs 3.11) and to note that the Chief Officer, Health Partnerships, will be responsible ... view the full minutes text for item 55.
To consider the report of the Chief Officer, Health Partnerships, on the progress made by the Leeds Academic Health Partnership to establish a Strategic Framework of priorities; including a summary of its programme of active projects to deliver these. The report acknowledges the role of the Leeds Academic Health Partnership in a wider strategic context of the Council’s Corporate Plan priorities to create a strong economy and compassionate city and to align with the Leeds Health and Well Being Strategy, Leeds Health and Care Plan and Leeds Inclusive Growth Strategy.
The Chief Officer, Health Partnerships introduced a report providing an update on the progress made by the Leeds Academic Health Partnership (LAHP) to establish a Strategic Framework of priorities along with a summary of its programme of active projects to deliver these. The report acknowledged the role of the LAHP within the wider strategic context of the Leeds Health and Well Being Strategy, Leeds Health and Care Plan and the Leeds Inclusive Growth Strategy.
The report identified the strength and skills of LAHP members to drive the main strategic priorities of:
- Support the delivery of partners’ own (and shared) strategies and plans –helping to simplify, not add to, complexity;
- Reflect the breadth of the partnership, for example: physical and mental health; care provided in and out of hospital; health and social care; discovery science to applied health research
- Build the reputation of and add value to all partner organisations and the city across the totality of the work programmes.
- Build on and bring together existing strengths across the city and also develop areas of new capability
Discussion focussed on the following key issues:
· The need to identify how the Third Sector will be further involved in the Partnership
· The need to clarify the role of digitalisation and digital innovation in the delivery of the priorities
· The ‘one workforce’ approach and how training will be delivered across the various partners to ensure this approach is implemented
· As part of a wider piece of work for the health and care partnership, three priorities of apprenticeships; organisational development and the long term future workforce had been identified for 2018, with focus commencing on 1st April 2018. From September, focus would include cultural working conditions and bringing together the workforce.
1) To note the Strategic Framework priorities and progress made by the Leeds Academic Health Partnership and its programme to deliver better health outcomes, reduced health inequality and more jobs and stimulate investment in health and social care within the City’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
2) To note that the Chief Officer, Health Partnerships Team will be responsible for overseeing implementation by the LAHP of its programme.

The PNA is submitted for approval by the Health and Wellbeing Board prior to publication by 1st April 2018 deadline.
The Director of Public Health, LCC, submitted a report on the new Pharmacy Needs Assessment (PNA) 2018-2021 which had been produced after a thorough and robust process, including a number of consultation measures.
Liz Bailey, Healthy Living and Health Improvement, introduced the summary findings of the report and provided assurance on the following key points:
- Leeds had a good spread and access to pharmaceutical services. No current gaps in provision of necessary services to meet the needs of the Leeds population had been identified;
- The PNA did not identify any future needs which could not be met by pharmacies/providers already on the pharmaceutical list; taking into account likely demographic changes during the three year life of the PNA

· Welcomed the recognition given to pharmacies and pharmacists for their support to local communities
· Acknowledged a concern regarding access to pharmacies; given that residents were being encouraged to discuss health and wellbeing issues with their pharmacists in the first instance where appropriate
· Sought assurance that where there was no pharmacy service, there was provision of ‘distance pharmacy’ with 10 miles; noting the continuing residential expansion of Leeds into outlying suburbs
· Noted that the previous PNA included building “Safe Places” provision within pharmacies and this was not included in the 2018-21 document. It was agreed that the PNA 2018-21 would be reviewed to ensure “Safe Places” are incorporated
· Concern over how migrants/new residents to Leeds are enabled to access pharmacies
· Opportunity to progress the ‘one healthcare records system’; including pharmacies
