This month’s news:October Engagement Event
Our engagement events provide opportunities for members of the public and providers to meet the Health and Wellbeing Board members, hear a range of perspectives, and discuss different themes.
We held an event in July on how we can ‘join up services’ more. We learned a lot from it and the people that attended thought it was really useful.
We are therefore holding a second event on this topic in a place where things are already getting more joined-up: Lowedges, Jordanthorpe and Batemoor.
This will be held on 31 October from 2-3.30pm in Jordanthorpe. Due to the fact we are using a different and smaller venue outside of the city centre, places are limited and registration is essential. Find out more about the event and how to register here.September’s Health and Wellbeing Board meeting
The Health and Wellbeing Board met on Thursday 26 September in Sheffield Town Hall. Thanks to those of you who came, and to those who asked a question. Topics discussed included the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy, health and wellbeing outcome indicators for Sheffield, Sheffield’s response to the national programme of action regarding Winterbourne View, and two presentations.
You can view the papers here and slides of the presentations delivered on Healthwatch Sheffield’s role and the Board’s work on integrating health and social care here. Minutes will be available to download within the next month.Have your say on the future of adult social care

Meet the Board Member
We chatted to Margaret Kitching, Director of Quality and Nursing at NHS England South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw about her work with the Board. Here’s what she told us.

  • What is your background in health and social care?

I am a Registered Nurse, Certified Midwife, District Nurse and a Specialist Nurse who has worked in the NHS for over 30 years. I have maintained my clinical practice skills as I continue to practise as a Tissue Viability Specialist Nurse on a sessional basis. I believe that I am able to effectively contribute from a front line perspective which enhances and complements my executive role. I am leading and driving the quality and patient safety agenda across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw with the overall aim of improving care and support to patients and their carers.

  • How do you feel about being part of the Health and Wellbeing Board?

I feel the Board gives us the opportunity to collaborate on key strategic issues that will benefit patient care.

  • What do you hope the Board will achieve over the next 12 months?

I hope the Board will continue to achieve a collaborative approach that will ensure that our decisions drive quality improvements by:

  • Having a shared purpose across all agencies that we are all sign up to and fully committed.
  • Ensuring that we are all signed up to driving quality improvements for the people of Sheffield.
  • Ensuring that people engagement is at the heart of the decisions being made.
