Social Care and Health Select Committee (Liverpool City Council) 4th June 2019 Part 2 of 2

Chair (Social Care and Health Select Committee) Cllr Richard McLinden (Liverpool City Council) 4th June 2019

The Chair of Liverpool City Council’s Social Care and Health Select Committee Cllr Richard McLinden explained near the start of the public meeting that the Committee doesn’t really have Powerpoint presentations as presentations aren’t really scrutiny, but that if there was a presentation alongside a written report it would be a maximum of 6-8 slides.

Cllr Nathalie Nicholas was appointed as Deputy Chair.

A number of advisory members were co-opted onto the Social Care and Health Select Committee (Dorcas Akeju OBE (Equalities and BME Engagement), Hazel Brown (Carers Engagement) and Sarah Thwaites (Healthwatch Liverpool)).

The Cabinet Member for Social Care and Health Cllr Paul Brant wasn’t present (as he was on his way back from a trial in Derbyshire) and his Assistant Cabinet Member Cllr Clare McIntyre was away giving a live TV interview for Granada Reports at Anfield as part of a campaign to persuade fans at children’s football matches not to smoke.

Most of the meeting was about the update from the NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group and a report on vaccination and immunisation.

The former report dealt with the proposed merger of Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust, a campaign at improving services for patients with communication needs, the closure of two GP practices at Everton Road and Anfield Health (as well as the transfer of 4 GP practices to another provider), an update on the construction of the Royal Hospital and an invitation to the NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group Annual General Meeting.

The latter report highlighted problems with vaccine supply, pointed out that rollout of HPV vaccine for boys aged 12-13 would happen in September 2019 and highlighted that vaccination rates in the population were falling below the rate considered to provide herd immunity.

  1. I don’t really care about Liverpool and their problems, i pay taxes for Wirral

    • Thanks for your comment.

      There are plenty of Wirral patients that travel to Liverpool for treatment and vice versa.

      There are also large numbers of people that travel from Liverpool to Wirral and back each day which means any public health issue could easily cross borders.

      Any public health issue in Liverpool therefore has the potential to impact on Wirral residents too.

      Although local taxes go towards Wirral Council, nationally national taxes are redistributed according to the priorities of the government of the day.

      For example the budget for the walk in centres threatened with closure on the Wirral comes out of national taxes, but political scrutiny/oversight of local public health is done by Wirral Council.

  2. The NANDA-I Diagnosis Development Committee (DDC) is seeking candidates for the Expert Clinical Advisory Panel (ECAP). The aim of the Panel is to provide a volunteer bank of recognized, contemporary clinical experts who can advise the DDC on relevant clinical issues and up-to-date evidence specific to newly submitted and existing nursing diagnoses.
