Home Care Update

·         Payments to Home Care providers would increase above inflation and took into account other pressures, e.g. the living wage.  Payments would continue to be reviewed to ensure resilience.  There were currently no patients delayed at Southmead Hospital because of Home Care provision and only a small number of delays in other hospitals.  Councillors requested an update should the situation significantly change.  (Action – Officers to update the People Scrutiny Commission on any significant change in Home Care provision – Netta Meadows).


People Directorate Budget Savings - Update on Engagement and Consultation

·         Councillor Kirk suggested contact be made with the Bristol Dementia Alliance. (Action – Mike Hennessey). 


·         An update would be provided on the consultation at the commission meeting in June.


Scrutiny Work Programme

·         The work programme was noted.


Additional Chairs business

·         Refreshments would not be provided at future commission meetings.


·         Due to the changes in the Cabinet and the appointment of two Labour Cabinet Members it was unclear if Cllr Massey could continue as Chair of the People Scrutiny Commission as she was also a Labour group member.  Further clarity would be sought.



The meeting finished at 12.35pm.
