2019/2020 Objectives for MSG Indicators

Decision Maker: Integration Joint Board

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Board heard from the Alison MacLeod who presented her report based around the performance against the Ministerial Steering Group national indicators for the previous two financial years and program for this coming financial year, which all helped develop targets for the next financial year.


The Board members entered into discussion of the report and it was highlighted that the report did not particularly allow review against Board’s Strategic Plan. It was strongly felt that the report focussed on numbers rather than consideration of benefit including value of performance or improvement. The Board did express concerns that the indicators and format of the report would allow for setting easily achieved or soft targets rather than the broader benefits achieved.



The Board resolved:

(i)            Approve the local objectives for the six MSG Integration Indicators contained within Appendix A, and


(ii)          Instructs the Chief Officer to submit the local objectives to the Ministerial Strategic Group for Health and Community Care by the deadline of 28th February 2019. And


(iii)         Include this Board’s observations and concerns in respect of the MSG indicators and the lack of evidenced outcome versus figures

(iv)         the lack of evidenced outcome versus figures
