That the Committee notes the mid-year Council Plan Monitoring Report 2018/19.


The Chief Officer introduced a report to present the monitoring of progress at the mid-year point 2018/19 for the Council Plan priority ‘Supportive Council’ relevant to the Committee. 


The Chief Officer advised that the mid-year monitoring report showed that 88% of activities were making good progress with 81% likely to achieve their planned outcomes.  79% of the performance indicators had met or exceeded their targets.  Risks were being managed with a minority of 18% being assessed as major.  The report was an exception based report and therefore focussed on the areas of under-performance.


Councillor Dave Mackie referred to page 176 of the report and the performance indicator for the percentage of looked after children with a timely health assessment.  The Senior Manager – Children and Workforce acknowledged the concerns expressed by Councillor Mackie and explained there had been some improvement but the matter remained an issue that the Service raised consistently with Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB).


The Chair commented on the risk that demand outstripped supply for residential and nursing homes care bed availability.  Councillor McGuill asked how many beds were currently available in residential care homes in comparison to 10 years ago.  The Senior Manager explained that the number of beds were less now than previously.  The Chair asked if the Committee could be informed of the number of people waiting for EMI beds.  The Chief Officer commented on the limited number of care homes in Flintshire and said demand was greater than supply and the problem would increase due to demography.
