Mr Hugh Mullen
, Director of Performance Management and Service Improvement
Mr Mullen's departure creates a vacancy as Vice Chairman of the Pharmacy Practices Committee and following discussion, it was AGREED that the newly appointed Director of Commissioning would replace Mr Mullen in this role.
The Chairman invited Mr Mullen
to summarise the Performance Report.
reported that the last round of 2009/10 performance meetings with Trusts had taken place recently and key risks to the achievements of this year's standards and targets had been discussed in detail.
confirmed that this was the first stage of an exercise where groups had been established to look at what was happening in respite services within Trusts and there was initially a need to define and quantify what was recorded before having the debate with users and carers.
In conclusion, Members commended the work done in monitoring performance and Mr Mullen
reported that the end of year position would be submitted for consideration at the next meeting.
