Solihull Health & Wellbeing Strategy Scorecard Q3 2020/21

Board to receive the latest Health & Wellbeing Strategy Scorecard.


Rob Davies detailed how they were tracking 31 indicators as part of the Scorecard – 12 were on track or being exceeded, 5 were within a reasonable pre-agreed margin, whilst 6 indicators were behind target. They were yet to identify targets for a further 7 – these tended to be new indicators, where they were developing the data collection mechanisms, and/or they were using this as they first year for setting a realistic target for the next.


Rob Davies updated upon the following targets:

·  Proportion of the eligible population aged 40-74 who received an NHS health check – it was emphasised this was one of the service areas significantly impacted by Covid-19. This was anticipated this indicator would increase with the on-going restoration and recovery of services.

·  Proportion of respondents to the Solihull Place Survey who have formally volunteered – it was noted this topic was discussed at the previous meeting, when the Place Survey was considered. The work being undertaken by the Community and Partnerships team to facilitate volunteering and social connectedness was highlighted.

·  Proportion of adults who are not economically active in Solihull – this was at target and it was anticipated the pandemic would have an impact on these figures for the foreseeable future. As a consequence, this would be closely monitored over future months.

·  Proportion of eligible homelessness approaches where prevention or relief is achieved – it was explained how, for this target, it was unlikely the annual target of 50% would not be achieved. This target had been effected by the continued impact of Covid-19 and the need to prioritise services to manage the crises response. However, it was explained how detailed work had been progressed, as part of a service improvement plan, and performance had increased during the last quarter.


Members raised the following questions and observations:

·  Jenny Wood requested for future Scorecard reporting to include an explanation as to why the targets had been set at their respective levels. It was noted this could be included in the performance summary. Jenny Wood also requested for future reporting to include details about which groups maintained oversight of the indicators, outside of the Health and Wellbeing Board – it was suggested the co-ordination of this could be considered by Solihull Together.

·  Councillor Sexton highlighted the indicator for proportion of eligible homelessness approaches where prevention or relief was achieved and queried why the target had been set at 50%. Fiona Hughes confirmed SCH did tackle every eligible homelessness application that was submitted to them. It was explained how the target was derived from a technical definition stemming from the Homelessness Reduction Act – it was confirmed a detailed explanation could be provided outside of the meeting.
