Modern.Gov Committee Management System

Further to the recent commencement of the roll-out of mobile devices, members are now able to access ‘restricted’ agenda etc. content through the app for the Modern.Gov committee management system. A system-generated activation link for the restricted app has been sent to all members that have so far received a Council-issued iPad, which should be opened on the mobile device. The activation link has been sent to members’ new ‘cllr.***@eppingforestdc.gov.uk’ email address and the app has already been downloaded to each device.

 

The relevant login and password details for Modern.Gov will need to be entered as part of the registration process for access to the restricted element of the app on the mobile device. If any member has forgotten their login/password details for Modern.Gov, or requires the reissue of the activation link, please advise democraticservices@eppingforestdc.gov.uk in order that these can be reset. Members should be aware that the activation link for the restricted element of app is device-specific and cannot be used with any other mobile device.

Mental Health Services in West Essex

As part of its current work programme, the Overview and Scrutiny Committee has expressed interest in receiving a presentation or briefing on the provision of local mental health services.

 

Whilst this aspect of the work programme is being developed, members are advised that such services and the building of partnerships to work better with mental health professionals, will be the subject of a briefing at the Civic Offices on 16 July 2019. Tendayi Musundire, Head of Safeguarding for Essex Partnership University NHS Trust and Dr. James Louis, a mental health doctor in West Essex, will be talking about how agencies can work together to share best practice and support residents and colleagues with their mental health. As better partnership working could help identify problems before they get to crisis level, the briefing has been developed for the Council’s customer facing staff. However, members are also invited to attend the session, which will be held in the Council Chamber from 2.00pm to 4.00pm.
