Meeting with Sutton LINks Representatives

Cllr Gordon-Bullock and myself as chair & vice-chair of the Health & Well Being Scrutiny Committee met with Susanna Bennett and Roy Prytherch representing Sutton LINks – the Local Involvement Network bringing together local people, organisations and groups to help improve local health and care services.

The purpose of the meeting was for Susanna & Roy to update us on the LINks workplan and priorities so that we could see how their work and the work of the Health & Well Being Scrutiny Committee might best complement each other.

We were pleased to see that LINks had decided to have Mental Health as one of its five priority areas as our committee had also identified this area as one in need of closer scrutiny and have dedicated our next Health & Well Being Committee meeting on 7th May entirely to this subject. We agreed that this was a large area where joint working between LINks & our committee would be most useful. LINKs members would be attending the May information-gathering meeting so we agreed to meet shortly after this to decide how best to progress having hopefully received a steer from committee.
