Diary of a Sutton Councillor

Thursday 3rd December 7.30pm

Health & Wellbeing Scrutiny Committee

This meeting looked at the Care Quality Commission’s inspection report on adult social care services in Sutton. The inspection concluded that overall the service performance in Sutton is strong. However with regard to the criteria of ‘maintaining personal dignity & respect’ the grading was ‘performing adequately’. An action plan had already been submitted by Adult Social Services to address the issues raised with the aim of raising performance in this area. Adi Cooper, Strategic Head of Adult Social Services was congratulated on her department’s improved performance.

A report was submitted looking into the background to the closure of wards at Sutton Hospital as a result of the risk of Legionella. The committee asked questions about how the risk had been assessed and what control measures were being put in place to address the issue.

The committee also received an update on the Decent Homes funding decision and a report on the review of the Sutton & Merton Primary Care Trust Strategic Plan.
