  6. What We Are and What We Are Not • We are not a “Hit Squad”, an audit or here to performance manage • There is a relationship with performance management. GO and SHA invited to plenary sessions • We are not an inspectorate and our findings do not feed into inspections or audits • Not here to publicly “judge” the PCT, LA or other partners • Discussions we have with you are in confidence - we will not be identifying individuals or their specific comments • We will not import a standard solution but will make suggestions and ideas regarding good practice using our objectivity, knowledge and expertise and based on the information you provide to us Alcohol Harm Reduction National Support Team

  7. Selection Criteria for Support • The Alcohol Harm Reduction National Support Team will help the local Partnerships who face the greatest challenge in addressing the alcohol target of reducing hospital admissions for alcohol related harm (Vital Signs Indicator VSC 26, National Indicator Set NI 39 and Public Service Agreement 25.2) and who would most benefit from intensive support • 10 PCT visits will be undertaken by the end of and 8-9 workshops March 2009 • Visits will be offered 12-18 month after a workshop • Areas offered support are selected in consultation and agreement with the DH, Cross-Government Alcohol policy team, Government Offices, SHAs and the relevant Local Authority Chief Executive and PCT Chief Executive. The final say rests with the PCT and LA who are our client Alcohol Harm Reduction National Support Team
