One public question was received from Mr Lennox, as follows:


‘What has recently changed or will be introduced in 2024 in the South West area in respect of care and wellbeing services?


There have been a number of city council reports referring to a transformation in such matters e.g.:


Hospital discharge and urgent care plans 

Preventative health care services

Place based initiatives to improve care health and wellbeing

Integrated pathways of care

Team around the Person

Primary care networks

Pathways for support and information platforms about care and health


Will we live longer and better as a result of these and how will local people be engaged in service development?’


The Chair and Executive Director stated that they would arrange and attend a meeting with Mr Lennox to discuss his question further, to include the Director of Public Health and the Chair of the South East LAC.
