The local action plan is shaping up thanks to contributions during the session.
The overall aims for Building Health Partnerships in Dudley are:
- To develop collective and inclusive engagement structures
- To gather and share information, evidence, insights and learning
- To promote collaboration and asset-based approaches
Activity is planned in two areas, as follows.
Activity will be undertaken to develop a better information base about what local voluntary and community organisations and social enterprises offer. Information will be drawn together in to a system which GPs and others can use to signpost to trusted services and activities provided through the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. Ideally this will build on an existing Community Information Directory maintained by Dudley Libraries Service.
2. Collective and inclusive engagement structures
Activity will be undertaken to identify data and evidence (qualitative and quantitative) around health and related needs which is or could be collected by local voluntary and community organisations and social enterprises, and shared through processes such as the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment for Dudley borough. Consideration will be given to ways that the CCG can engage voluntary, and community groups and social enterprises to influence commissioning and promote co-production in all stages of the commissioning cycle, using data and evidence which they collect.
