What plans do you have to link the issues affecting people with learning disabilities and their families to your Health and Wellbeing board?

  • 7 reported that the Partnership Board Chair is a member of Health and Wellbeing Board.

  • 2 said that the Executive Director was the link.

  • 8 said they were still working on the link from Partnership Boards.

  • 5 said through the work that was being put into the JSNA to make sure the needs of people with a learning disability were properly identified.

  • 1 area has set up ‘listening groups’ for families and individuals

  • 1 area’s Partnership Board is linked through self-advocates being member of LINK and Health Watch developments.

  • 1 area said the Partnership Board was represented


Conclusion good news

Conclusion – Good News

  • The fact the all 25 Partnership Board areas responded positively to all of the questions in the questionnaire shows us the level of commitment there is to maintaining the voice of people with a learning disability and their families in this region.

  • The priorities of Valuing People Now are still important in the North West.


Conclusion need to pay attention

Conclusion – need to pay attention

  • As Health and Wellbeing Boards develop the NW needs to make sure that they do not become ‘professional’ bodies made up solely of public servants with a ‘token’ member of the community represented by Health Watch.

  • Unless Health and Wellbeing Boards are representative of the people they serve and have a good understanding of the barriers that society presents and the way society can exclude people the chance of them ‘forgetting’ their role in serving all members of the public may be lost.


Recommendations

Recommendations

  • Equality Action Training should be considered as part of establishment of Health and Wellbeing Boards to try to ensure all members have a good understanding of the barriers that society presents and the way society can exclude people

  • Equality Impact Assessments completed by Health and Wellbeing Boards must be real and more than a ‘process to be completed’, real consideration must be given by Boards to their role on behalf of all members of their community.

  • Redo the questionnaire in 12 months.
