Consultation engagement

Consultation & Engagement

SILC as the LINk’s host developed a consultation and engagement plan

This helped understand how Surrey Healthwatch should be developed and obtain views that represent all communities in Surrey

This has informed Surrey County Council’s service specification

We recognise Healthwatch will be very different to LINkS, we want to ensure it is set up in a way that is right for Surrey people

Healthwatch needs to build upon LINks skills, knowledge, experience and commitment but also acknowledge where there have been challenges in the past


Next steps

Next steps

Developing the specification:

  • Outline specification presented to Board today (Appendix 2)

  • Council running series of events during Sept/Oct 2012 to co-design HealthWatch specification

  • Final specification to be circulated to Health and Wellbeing Board by 4th October and shared with LINkS

    The decision to proceed:

  • SILC and LINkS to prepare a statement of readiness to deliver the specification by 14th October

  • On the basis of that statement the Council will either

    a) award LINkS the function by grant-in-aid funding to engage in a process of co-design to develop Surrey HealthWatch

    b) commence a full tender process for the HealthWatch contract


Next steps1

Next steps

Legal standing and governance

  • If LINkS are to become Healthwatch they will be supported by SILC to prepare articles and memorandum for incorporation as a new organisation and social enterprise

  • LINkS will be required to detail against the new specification any work to be undertaken pre- and post- the contract award

    Key milestones from project plan

  • 31st October Cabinet member decision

  • If Cabinet award LINks the function the co-design with SCC and partners will begin

  • If they don’t then there will be an Invitation to Tender issues on 23rd of November

  • 23rd March new contract signed

  • 1st April go live
