Minutes:

The Chair thanked Board members present and those officers who had attended the meeting to make presentations to the Board on a number of aspects in relation to ageing.  She commented that whilst the Board was quorate, there was no representation from the Leicester City CCG, Leicester Partnership Trust or GPs and she felt that they had important roles to play in addressing healthy ageing. 

 

The Chair further commented that the Board was not simply an opportunity to share information, but it had an important strategic role to consider what all providers of health services were doing to address issues affecting aspects of health and what else should be done to improve outcomes for citizens relating to the issues considered.

 

As a number of key stakeholders on the Board were not present or represented at the meeting, the Chair felt that it would not be worthwhile for those present to receive the presentations as they would only need to be repeated to those not present in order for all key partners to discuss the issues raised.

 

The Chair asked officers to arrange another meeting as a matter of urgency and before the next scheduled meeting of the Board in November to enable the presentations to made all key stakeholders on the Board.

 

RESOLVED:

 

That consideration of the presentations intended for this meeting be deferred until a re-arranged meeting as suggested by the Chair above.
