Hewitt Review findings pdf icon PDF 202 KB

Report of the Director of Public Health

Additional documents:


Lucy Hubber, Director of Public Health, presented the report on the findings of the Hewitt Review which was published in April 2023. The government is currently considering the recommendations made by the review it is not currently government policy. The following information was highlighted:


(a)  a notable recommendation includes a shift from focussing on illness to promoting health, including a shift in the share of total NHS budget at ICS level going towards prevention. This work has already begun in Nottingham;

(b)  sharing of data will be key to achieve these recommendations, and this requires care following the implementation of GDPR. Work is ongoing with the System Analytics Intelligence Unit on this, and they could come and present to a future Committee;

(c)  it is promising that the Review recognises the role of communities in creating their own strategies and develop longer term engagement. This was recognised during the Covid-19 pandemic.


Resolved to


(1)  note the publication and content of The Hewitt Review: An independent review of integrated care systems;

(2)  consider learning and reflections from the review which can be applied within the local Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICS ahead of a government response to the review and the recommendations contained within it;

(3)  invite the System Analytics Intelligence Unit to a future meeting of the Board.


Nottingham and Nottinghamshire NHS Joint Forward Plan pdf icon PDF 376 KB

Report of the Director of Integration, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICB


Joanna Cooper, Assistant Director of Strategy, NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, presented the report and delivered a presentation briefing members of the Board on the development of the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire NHS Joint Forward Plan as required under the Health and Care Act 2022. The following information was highlighted:


(a)  the Joint Forward Plan for the local NHS sets out the 5 year response to the Integrated Care Strategy. The Plan is for the whole of the NHS with all local NHS organisations owning it and contributing to its delivery, a move away from separate organisational strategic planning approaches;

(b)  it provides an opportunity to reposition how the NHS organisations will work together and with partners in the future in order to ensure that it delivers the health elements of the Integrated Care Strategy;

(c)  a public facing Joint Forward Plan must be produced before the start of each financial year, meaning that a final version of the first iteration must be ready by 30 June this year. The Integrated Care Partnership and NHS England must be consulted and the Health and Wellbeing Boards must be involved;

(d)  the Integrated Care Strategy commits the ICB to its four aims and the principles of prevention, equity and integration. The Joint Forward Plan will set out what these principles mean in terms of how the local NHS will operate and the impacts arising from this approach. This will result in improved outcomes for patients, staff, NHS organisations and partners;

(e)   engagement events are planned throughout May and June with key stakeholders, as well as members of the public and communities.


The following suggestions were made by Board members:


(f)  the Plan should be accessible and not too long, and should allow for flexibility;

(g)  it should take into account that people lead busy lives, particularly in deprived areas, and cannot always make scheduled medical appointments, and include links with the voluntary sector;

(h)  the Health and Wellbeing strategy must be linked in, and clarity of the role of the Place Based Partnership.


Resolved to


(1)  note the update on the development of the NHS Joint Forward Plan;

(2)  receive the final NHS Joint Forward Plan for formal endorsement at the next meeting of the Board, subject to the recommendation of the Chair and Director of Public Health (under their delegated responsibility).

(d)  as part of the suite of PBP ‘enabler programmes’, on 10 May, partners took part in an accelerated design workshop to explore opportunities for developing ‘Integrated Neighbourhood Models of Support’ in Nottingham.

Report of the Director for Public Health, Nottingham City Council

Additional documents:


Hannah Stovin, Intelligence and Insight Manager, presented the report providing the Board with an update as to progress on the creation of Joint Strategic Needs Assessment dashboards in conjunction with Nottinghamshire County and Integrated Care Board colleagues, and the proposals for continuation of this work.

(d)  it is important to recognise the inequalities laid bare by the pandemic, and action must be made on this, involving communities. Lessons have been learnt and some improvements have already been made, however more could be done for example on health screening.

(b)  immunisation levels are lower than expected, and the City & County are developing a dashboard board to review the available data, working with strategic intelligence unit;

Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment


Victoria McGregor-Riley, Locality Director, Bassetlaw Place Based Partnership, provided a verbal update on the statutory responsibility to publish and keep up-to-date a statement of the needs for pharmaceutical services for the population in its area.
