VI                     SOCIAL PRESCRIBING IN DUNDEE

 

Sheila Allan, Community Health Inequalities Manager gave a presentation on social prescribing in Dundee.  It was reported that social prescribing was one means of supporting self-management.  It was an approach (or range of approaches) for connecting people with non-medical sources of support or resources within the community which were likely to help with the health problems they were experiencing.

Sheila explained the strategic context to social prescribing and explained the sources of support and the number of referrals received over 2016 and the main goal themes being addressed.  Outcomes of referral to external services were outlined.  A case study was provided to outline the way in which someone may present themselves to the service and the way their position may be progressed and supported towards assisting a positive outcome for their recovery and continued well-being.

The Integration Joint Board noted the content of the presentation.

VII                    DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC HEALTH ANNUAL REPORT 2015/16

There was submitted Report No DIJB47-2016 by the Director of Public Health reporting that  the work of the Directorate of Public Health contributed directly to improved healthy life expectancy by supporting people to look after themselves, by contributing to closing the health inequalities gap within a generation, by ensuring that services met minimum quality standards, especially patient experience, and by being cost-effective in all decisions, actions and services.  The Director of Public Health also gave a presentation in supplement to their report.

It was reported that the Director of Public Health in each territorial Health Board was required to publish annually an independent report on public health.  This report was required to be brought to Tayside NHS Board and made public for use by local stakeholders, including individuals, committees, the third sector, local authorities and NHS partners.

In Tayside the focus had mainly been on the work of the Directorate of Public Health in conjunction with its partner organisations and local communities.

In 2014 a number of people asked for a shorter, more focused and better illustrated report covering fewer topics, so for three years that was what the Directorate of Public Health had provided.  Feedback on the reports had been extremely positive.  Commissioning, co-ordinating, copy editing and proofreading of this report and the two previous reports were delegated to Mrs Lesley Marley, Public Health Directorate Manager.  The responsible officer was Dr Drew Walker, Director of Public Health.

The Report was accepted by Tayside NHS Board in August 2016.  The report was brought to Dundee Health and Social Care Joint Integration Board for information.

The Integration Joint Board agreed to note the presentation, the content of the report and to support the recommendations outlined in the report which was attached as an appendix.
