- View the background to item 24.
24.1 The Chair explained that the local response to the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP), the Sussex Health & Care Plan, was currently being finalised and could therefore not be discussed at this meeting. The definitive plan will be considered at the 18 March 2020, whilst the slot at the current meeting would be used to explore the general principles underpinning the LTP.
24.2 Cllr Barnett informed committee members that she and Cllr Grimshaw had recently visited Lindridge Nursing home to look at the home’s rehabilitation beds. She was pleased to report that she thought that provision is excellent: care was of a very high standard; re-ablement was being offered; the food was very well presented. The dementia beds were also excellent, and in general lots of thought had gone in to making residents feel at home. Cllr Barnett now felt reassured that the closure of the intermediate beds at Knoll House would not have a detrimental impact on rehabilitation. Cllr Grimshaw agreed that the home was really impressive.
