Assistant Chief Executive



Work Programme



To agree the Committee’s work programme


The Committee is recommended to agree the updated work programme at appendix 1


1          Background

1.1       The work programme contains the proposed agenda items for future HOSC meetings and is included on the agenda for each committee meeting.

1.2     This report also provides an update on any other work going on outside the Committee’s main meetings.

2.    Supporting information

2.1.        The work programme is attached as appendix 1 to this report. It contains the proposed agenda items for the upcoming HOSC meetings, as well as other HOSC work going on outside of the formal meetings. The updated work programme will be published online following this meeting. The HOSC work programme is also available online.

2.2.        The CCG has amended its timetable for the Cardiology and Ophthalmology review. This means it will instead come to the HOSC at its 2nd December meeting, where the Committee will consider whether or not the proposals constitute a substantial variation to services requiring formal consultation under health legislation.

2.3.        During the course of the review of the Inpatient Mental Health in East Sussex proposals, the Review Board suggested a report be added to the work programme on Community Mental Health Services and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). This has been provisionally added to the work programme, but a date needs to be agreed.

3          Conclusion and reasons for recommendations

3.1       The work programme sets out HOSC’s work both during formal meetings and outside of them. The committee is asked to consider and agree the updated work programme.
