Council Services:

What is the Integrated Delivery Board for Health and Social Care Services for Anglesey?

In March 2014, the Isle of Anglesey Council and the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board established an Integrated Delivery Board to provide more robust joint governance arrangements to plan and deliver more integrated Health and Social care services to meet the needs of the population on the Island.

Purpose of the Board:

There is substantial evidence that the health and care needs of the people of the Isle of Anglesey can be better served by the improved integration of services between health and local authority services. In order to facilitate this process, and to provide a sound governance structure the Board will:

  • Lead on both service development and quality assurance processes.
  • Tackle the urgent issues and opportunities arising from NHS and Local Authority service reconfiguration.
  • Recommend action which would unblock barriers to strategic development and operational service delivery, troubleshooting where necessary.
  • Understand the financial environment of each partner organisation and seek opportunities to maximise efficiencies.
  • Consider alignment/pooling of budgets and other resources where there is mutual benefit.
  • Take forward joint workforce initiatives in support of strategic change.

Underpinning all the above is the Board’s commitment to integration, and to further develop positive discussions about trust between the Council and Health Board.

The Board will take on the role of a “county forum” and will have links to other partnerships to ensure strategic alignment with the priorities identified by the Local Service Board to transform public services through the development of integrated service frameworks underpinned by formal agreements.

This Board will lead locally during its first year on the developing actions arising from “A Framework for Delivering Integrated Health and Social Care for Older People with Complex Needs” and prioritise relevant Intermediate Care Fund projects, developing the Specialist Children’s Services and reviewing the ‘Front Door’ for Children’s Services.
