    The Chair welcomed everyone to the meeting, including representatives from South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM), Lambeth Council, Southwark Council, NHS South East London CCG, Southwark Healthwatch, London Communications, and service user consultants.


    Andrew Eyres, Strategic Director, Health and Care, Lambeth Council and CCG, informed the Committee that a presentation, concerning the reconfiguration of Lambeth Hospital mental health services, had been published with the agenda. This covered a range of issues in relation to consultation feedback and recommendations, including: the scope of the consultation; feedback and key metrics; feedback themes and recommendations; the decision making process; and further considerations arising from the consultation.


    Jane Bowie, Director of Integrated Commissioning, Lambeth Council, highlighted that an independent consultation feedback report had been published via a supplementary agenda. In response to questions, David Orekoya, Assistant Director, Integrated Commissioning: Mental Health, Lambeth Council, provided further information on the consultation process, the methodology, the approach to the analysis and key findings from the independent report.


    During the discussion the Chair invited service user consultants to provide feedback on their experiences. It was recognised that any relocation would lead to a significant improvement in the quality of the environment and therefore an improved service user experience. However, it was also noted, as set out via the supplementary agenda, that there were concerns about not being able to access services within their own borough.   


    The Committee was asked to note key themes arising from the consultation feedback and recommendations relating to each thematic group, set out via the agenda. A wide range of issues were considered in relation to: Alternative options; Travel and access to the Maudsley; Reputation and familiarity; The Maudsley Hospital site; Clinical pathways; Clinical and non-clinical support services; and the future of the Lambeth Hospital site.


    Adrian McLachlan, GP and Governing Body Member NHS South East London CCG, clinical lead for Lambeth Living Well Network Alliance provided an update on decision making following the Lambeth Together Strategic Board meeting held on 17 June. The following points were noted:


    -          The Strategic Board had reflected on the feedback and appraisals provided and was asked to support the proposed recommendations to be included in the Decision Making Business Case for presentation to South East London CCG. The Strategic Board was also asked to provide their support to an overarching recommendation that South East London CCG approve the preferred option as described in the pre-consultation business case.


    -          The Strategic Board welcomed the consultation and proposals but had been unable to make a recommendation at that point since it was noted Black Thrive had sought further information on involvement from the BAME community. As a result, the Strategic Board agreed that further assurance be addressed on this issue in advance of a final recommendation to the South East London CCG Governing Body.


    It was explained that the proposed recommendation remained Option 2 – to relocate four acute wards and the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit to the Maudsley site. However, following the Strategic Board  ...  view the full minutes text for item 4.
