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 Committee is asked to consider any future reports or other work items that it wishes to add to the work programme.

2.3.        To assist in this process the partner organisations attending the meeting have been asked to provide a verbal update on Covid and the impacts on services under the work programme item. This follows on from the Winter Plan Update report received at the last meeting where it was reported that Covid was affecting staffing and recovery plans.

2.4.        The Committee is also asked to consider whether to schedule any of the items listed under “Items to be Scheduled” section of the work programme for future meetings to be held later this year.

2.5.        The Committee will note that a new item has been added for the recommissioning of the Adult Bruns Service currently provided by the Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead. The exact timing of this report will depend on the timescales set by NHS England Specialised Commissioning South East (NHSE SE).

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.
