The Committee noted that the following statement did not directly relate to an item of business on the agenda for the meeting but was within the remit of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee.

 Statement by David d’Orton-Gibson:

When you don't have your health, most other things don't matter. We have lovely beaches, no good if your health won't let you get down there. We encourage employment, of no use if you are not well to get to work. And I could go on. It was this experience that led me to launch "Bournemouth, Health at the heart". What I was pushing for was that in every decision the council makes we should consider the health implications. Does changing the road layout encourage more cars to speed past or does it encourage active travel? I would commend to this panel the idea of adapting BCP Health at the heart.’

Minutes:

The Committee considered a list of future meeting dates and suggested venues.

 

The Corporate Director of Adult Social Care reported on the latest position regarding the Dorset Clinical Services Review (‘CSR’) and advised the Committee about latest developments relating to referral to the Secretary of State.

 

The Committee agreed that this matter should be brought forward for discussion at the next scheduled meeting of the Committee on 22nd July 2019. Because this issue was likely to attract considerable interest within the Poole area, it was also agreed that this meeting should be held at the Poole Civic Centre. There would also be further training for Members of the Committee prior to the meeting.

 

Cllr Edwards informed the Committee that a question that she had submitted had been answered by Officers ahead of the meeting but sought further assurance that Ward Councillors would be kept informed about service delivery proposals within their respective Wards. The Corporate Director assured Members that this would be done. Members would also be closely involved in the development of new service strategies as they were brought forward for discussion.
