Minutes:

5.1 In the absence of Dani Gilleland from the NHS South, Central and West Commissioning Support Unit, Becky Willmoth updated members on the insights and recommendations made at the Health and Wellbeing Partnership Development Session on 30 January 2024. Katie Bowden, Transformation Director at NHS South, Central and West Commissioning Support Unit joined the meeting remotely to respond to questions and to propose next steps.

 

5.2 It was explained that the purpose of the development session on 30 January 2024 had been to develop an understanding on how the work and experience of the past 12 months might shape the focus of the Partnership and delivery of the Partnership delivery in the next 12 months.

 

5.3 During the development session, members: -

 

a.    Acknowledged the strength of the influences and conditions, (creativity, energy, relationships, and commitment), that impacted on and developed the work of the Partnership and were asked to consider how this might transfer into tangible actions and outcomes.   

 

b.    Expressed the intent to optimise the potential of knowing more about each other’s contexts to maximise resources across the system.

 

c.    Highlighted the importance of understanding how the work of the Partnership served the population of Gloucestershire.

 

d.    Several members referenced the need to optimise the potential of being aware and knowing enough about each other’s contexts to maximise resources across the system.

 

e.    Overall, members were keen to understand how the Partnership was serving the population of Gloucestershire.

 

5.4 When asked what considerations the Partnership should make in the next 12 months, (based on the reflections of the previous 12 months), it emerged that there were strong variations in what members believed the Partnership should focus its time and energy. Some members expressed the need to focus on enhancing relationships for the purpose of system integration, whilst others focussed on delivery and evidencing impact. Several members felt that, whilst the relationships within the Partnership had deepened, the next phase would be for the relationships to establish interconnections and greater collaboration across the system.

 

5.5 Key questions raised during the development session included:

 

Enabling progress on collective priorities:

 

a.    How do we hold the tension between our ambitions and what is realistic?

 

b.    What parts of the strategy do we need to focus on to have impact in the next 12 months? And therefore, what do we need to ‘let go of’ for the coming year to have focus?

 

c.    What would need to change for the strategy to be an anchor point for, and reflective of, our convening?

 

Creating the conditions for system maturity:

 

a.    How do we ensure synergy between local/organisational initiatives and HWP focus?

 

b.    How do we ensure our impact is serving the population of Gloucestershire well?

 

c.    How do we ensure funding is more interconnected to have greater impact on the system as a whole?

 

d.    How can the Partnership lever a culture where organisations proactively work together to find new solutions to shared challenges? 

 

Developing Partnership Practices:

 

a.    How can we  ...  view the full minutes text for item 5.
