Presentation by representatives of Rochdale Boroughwide Housing


The Health and Wellbeing Board received a presentation from the Ms. Anna Charlton representing Rochdale Boroughwide Housing (RBH) regarding the services that they provide for their tenants in terms of their impact on health and wellbeing.


RBH had specialist teams that worked to promote health related issues such as the Independent Living Team which worked in close association with the Council’s Adult Care Service and the local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group helping to meet disability needs through adaptations and best use of existing homes and often supporting hospital discharges.


The presentation referred to the RBH response team and to their ‘extra care’ facility that was based at the Harehill Court complex in Littleborough. The presentation also analysed the work of the RBH’s Community Partnership team. Their role was to engage with communities and deliver in partnerships, usually in most deprived parts of Borough:

              Pantry project

              Gardening - Kirkholt

              Big Life health awareness courses

              Digital Inclusion

              Funding to local groups

              Combatting social isolation


Members of the Board asked questions of the presenter seeking clarification on opportunities for work with staff from the Fire and Rescue Service, supported living options (for residents aged 55 years and over), RBH’s attitudes and policy in respect of complaints and the possibility of joint working between RBH and the Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust in terms of the provision of mental health services.


DECIDED – That the presentation be noted and welcomed.

Suicide Prevention Strategy

Director of Public Health to report.


The Director of Public Health and Wellbeing reported that she had, on 2nd March 2017, held a training session for Rochdale MBC Members on the Greater Manchester Suicide Prevention Strategy. The training session had been well attended and feedback from those 16 Members who attended had been overwhelmingly positive.

Of the 10 Greater Manchester Authorities 48 occurred in the City of Manchester but Rochdale was second with 31 (11%) which was proportionately higher than its population, which at around 210,000 was about 6% of Greater Manchester’s overall population.

Oral Health Improvement Strategy Study Group pdf icon PDF 162 KB


The Health and Wellbeing Board considered a report of the Oral Health Scrutiny Study Group which presented its final report of its study in oral healthcare.


In September 2015 the Health, Schools and Care Overview and Scrutiny Committee established a Scrutiny Study Group to attempt to gain an understanding of the prevalence and severity of dental decay amongst the Borough’s residents, especially amongst five year old children and to examine recommended actions for inclusion in the local Oral Health Improvement Strategy 2016 – 2020, to rectify the current situation. The Study was therefore closely linked to the development of the Borough’s Oral Health Improvement Strategy and was concerned with improving health outcomes for service users in the Rochdale Borough which should improve healthy life and wellbeing outcomes. As a consequence, this directly linked into the ‘People’, ‘Place’ and ‘Prosperity’ corporate priorities of the Council.


DECIDED – That the report be noted.
