Substance misuse commissioning and strategy development are now
part of the new structures within Worcestershire County Council.
Worcestershire DAAT (Drug and Alcohol Action Team) ceased to exist
on 31st March 2013. The strategic functions will be carried
out within the Health and Wellbeing Partnership and Strategy
Service, whilst the commissioning functions will be carried out
within the Joint Commissioning Unit (JCU), which is part of the new
Directorate of Adult Services and Health (DASH). We will be
updating all of the affected web pages as soon as possible.
Substance Misuse now comes under the Lead Commissioner for Older
People and Vulnerable Adults - Elaine Carolan. The Substance Misuse
Commissioner will be Anne McKay, and the Commissioning Support
Officer is Sue Davidson. The Head of the Joint Commissioning Unit
is Richard Keble.
