                         PUBLIC PARTNERSHIP FORUM


                PLAN OF ACTION
As defined by statute, the role of the Clydesdale Public Partnership Forum (PPF)
is to:

   Inform the local population as to the range and location of services.

   To engage local service users, carers and the public in discussions as to local
    health services.

   To support wider service planning and decision making in such a way as to
    ensure services are accountable to the local community.


At a meeting held on the 13th of November 2007, the Clydesdale PPF discussed
and agreed five overarching objectives for the forum.

These are:

   To fully establish the PPF within Clydesdale locality, ensuring that members /
    representatives are fully supported and able to contribute effectively to the
    work of the forum.

   To ensure that the PPF fully represents all stakeholders within the local
    community, and effectively reflects their views in dialogue with Clydesdale
    locality, the South CHP and NHS Lanarkshire.

   To ensure that the PPF timeously and effectively communicates with all
    stakeholders, and acts as a source of advice and support to the local
    population.

   To ensure that the PPF fully supports the Health Promotion agenda of NHS
    Lanarkshire, and where possible, assists Clydesdale locality staff in delivering
    local initiatives and improvements.

   To ensure that all relevant stakeholders are able to actively participate in local
    service development and local service improvement work.


The tables below set out a series of implementing actions, grouped under each of
these objectives. Where relevant, each action has been assigned an indicative
timescale, as well as the name of the individual who has overall responsibility for
ensuring implementation.

It should be noted that this action plan is a live document, owned by the PPF, and
subject to changes being made as the various actions are progressed.
