Chief Executive's Comment on Health - February 2016

As regular readers will be aware, I have been pressing for some time now for greater engagement and representation for the VCSE sector at some of the countywide health structures, especially the Health and Wellbeing Board. Although we have made little progress I wanted to update you that I have pushed for a letter from the Staffordshire Voice Chief Officers Group. Again proposing representation and a mechanism for achieving it. The Voice Group is coordinated by VAST and Chaired by Nick Maslen of Age UK South Staffordshire. I will keep you posted on the outcome.
