Report by the Chief Officer

 

5

A report by the Chief Officer informed the Committee of progress in implementing the Health & Social Care Standards.

 

Discussion took place on the implementation of the Standards and it was stated that although there are risks involved as long as it is clear regarding leadership and timescales for completion, then risks could be mitigated.

 

The Head of Clinical and Care Governance advised that although the self-reflection tool from Scottish Government was due to be completed by April it was yet to be received and therefore unlikely to be completed in time to allow a report to the meeting in May.  It would be August before a report to Committee would be possible.

 

The Chair asked that a verbal update be provided in May with a full report being presented in August.

 

Thereafter the Committee agreed to:

  1. note progress made in implementing the Health and Social Care Standards since August 2017 across Health and Social Care Moray;

  2. support the completion of a self-reflection resource from the Scottish Government which should enable Health & Social Care Moray to share good practice and demonstrate how the Health and Social Care Standards are making a real difference in personal experience and outcomes to those receiving services in Moray;

  3. note that further work will be undertaken to develop exception reporting on this matter from governance groups to this Committee;

  4. an verbal interim report on progress of completion of the self-reflection tool from Scottish Government being presented to Committee in May; and

  5. a report on completion of the self-reflection tool from Scottish Government being presented to Committee in August.

Having declared an interest in this item, the Chair considered it appropriate that as the item was for noting progress there was no requirement for him to leave the meeting.

Discussion took place on the content of the report and work completed to ensure the correct level of reporting to the Committee.  It was agreed that future reports should be presented to the Clinical Governance Group with exception reports to provide assurance being provided to this Committee.

 

Thereafter the Committee agreed to note: 

  1. the progress made in implementing the actions identified by the Mental Welfare Commission for Scotland;

  2. the actions outlined to manage the completion of the actions and incorporation into working practices; and

  3. reporting to provide assurance would be by exception to this Committee.
