Carers Partnership Board Chair’s Briefing

I met with Simon Latham the executive head with responsibility for carers services and Julie Wilson who heads up the LBS Carers Development Unit to discuss the agenda for the forthcoming meeting on 14th July. Ken Fish the Vice Chair was unable to attend as he had a prior commitment. Simon requested that the Board provide some guidance on preparing a new Service Improvement Plan for carers as the current one was coming to its expiry date.


Following this meeting I had a spontaneous meeting with Rachael MacLeod the CE of the Carers Centre in Sutton about the agenda and she came up with some good ideas about amending the format of the agenda (and meeting) in order to make it clearer what the aims of each item were. We also revisited the plans for agenda setting meetings in the light of the timing of the Adults Partnership Board meetings and the Sutton Partnership Board meetings, which are of direct relevance to our board. We have therefore decided to try to have agenda setting meetings 3 weeks prior to the Carers Partnership Board meeting and have obtained agreement with relevant members of the board.
