Adult Social Care and Health OSC – 13 September

The next meeting of Warwickshire’s Health and Adult Social Care Scrutiny Committee takes place on Wednesday this week in Shire Hall, Warwick, starting at 11am.

There are two key areas being discussed at this meeting, the first being an update on Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). The CAMHS Service has undergone a competitive dialogue tender process for a single, redesigned, children and young people’s emotional well-being and mental health service.  You can read the update here.

The other key area this time is Dementia Awareness. In Warwickshire, there are estimated to be approximately 7,500 people living with dementia and this is likely to rise to over 11,000 people in the next ten years. Most of us will be affected in some way by dementia during our lifetime.

Raising awareness of dementia, creating dementia friendly communities and supporting people to live well with dementia are key aims of Warwickshire’s Living Well with Dementia Strategy (2016-2019).

A presentation will be made to detail some of the key achievements to date and to outline priorities for future work.

The scrutiny meetings are streamed live, so you may want to view the presentation. If so the link will be posted here.

Member Development Session – Warwickshire Fire & Rescue

On 4 July 2017 members were invited to Rugby Fire Station as part of the induction programme; which has been developed to ensure that members have the skills and knowledge required to be effective in their role.

The itinerary included welcome and introductions from the Portfolio Holder for Fire & Community Safety, Councillor Howard Roberts and Chief Fire Officer Andy Hickmott. There were presentations from Deputy Chief Fire Officer Rob Moyney and Programme Manager Ade Mallaban – which introduced members to the Fire Service, their responsibilities and priorities as well as the overall vision for staff.

Members were then given the chance to see some of the equipment used by firefighters including heavy duty cutters for road traffic collisions and boats for water rescues. There was also a demonstration by the Animal Rescue Team who showcased the equipment and skills they have for large animal rescue call outs.

There was a chance for members to see the wide range of prevention work that the Fire Service does – from visits to schools, home safety advice and arson prevention, to the work done with bikers and university students.

This event was well received by the members and gave a valuable insight into the various roles that Warwickshire fire and Rescue provide for our local communities
