Caerphilly Teaching LHB and Caerphilly County Borough Council
Working relationships between Caerphilly Teaching LHB (TLHB) and Caerphilly County Borough Council are close.
This is demonstrated by frequent high level meetings and by the Director of Social Services sitting on the TLHB board and management team.
An example of formal joint commissioning in Caerphilly is the planned development of the North Resource Centre. This joint health and social care centre will house intermediate care beds, integrated health and social care staff, an integrated community mental health team, district nursing and a social workers. It is due to be operational by 2010. The project has experienced difficulties securing funding because of complications with funding streams for jointly commissioned services but the business case has now been submitted to WAG and the procurement process for a third party developer has commenced. Progressing this project is a priority for Caerphilly Local Service Board.
