Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Board received a report which updated members on the Primary Care Co-Commissioning and specifically the decision made by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group Governing Body on 13 January 2015 on the future of Primary Care Co-Commissioning.

 

Catherine Mitchel, Local Chief Officer, introduced the report and provided an overview update. Key points highlighted and raised during discussion included:

 

·         NHS England had presented three proposals for a co-commissioning model to the CCG to see if they would wish to jointly commission primary care services with NHS England or whether the CCG would want to fully commission Primary Care Services.

·         Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG Governing Body took the decision to enter into a joint commissioning arrangement with NHS England.  This will commence from April 2015.  The Governing Body would also review a third option of delegated commissioning of Primary Care prior to 2016.

·         Entering into Option 2, Joint Commissioning will mean that a Joint Committee would be created to oversee the new arrangements.  The national terms of reference required representation from Health and Wellbeing Boards and Healthwatch.  The CCG would seek nominations for the Joint Committee.  The first meeting would be in May 2015.

·         The Joint Committee had a national Terms of Reference and would bring the CCG, regional representatives from NHS England and external partners together to discuss how the Joint Commissioning of Primary Care would be implemented going forward.

·         Primary Care was key to delivering better outcomes across the city.  Joint Commissioning would provide an opportunity to discuss the different commissioning models to provide better outcomes and getting the right service in the right place.

·         Having a representative of the Health and Wellbeing Board on the Joint Committee would provide an opportunity to highlight some of the challenging health issues in Peterborough and addressing them.

·         Concern was raised that social care had not been included in the commissioning process.  The Local Chief Officer advised that the architecture and national terms of reference had been quite prescriptive but the inclusion of social care could be raised at the first meeting of the Joint Committee.

 

RESOLVED

 

1)         The Board noted that the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group will Jointly Commission Primary Care Services with NHS England East from 1 April 2015.  

2)         The Board requested that at the first meeting of the Joint Committee consideration be given to the inclusion of social care in the joint commissioning arrangements.

3)         The Chair would write to the Secretary of State to request that social care be included in the new Joint Commission arrangements.

Minutes:

(a)          Health Protection Annual Report

 

The Board received a report which presented the first Annual Health Protection Report for Peterborough City Council.  The Annual Health Protection Report focused on the statutory responsibilities for health protection and complimented the Annual Report of the DPH.

 

Dr Anne McConville, Interim Consultant in Public Health introduced the report and provided further background information and context. Key points highlighted and raised during discussion included:

 

·         The Annual Report looked at the Health Protection Functions and the health input into emergency planning and resilience for Peterborough.

·         The purpose of the report was to provide assurance to the Health and Wellbeing Board and the population that the statutory duties with regard to health protection were being carried out efficiently and effectively.

·         Specific challenges which had been identified were Tuberculosis (TB), poor uptake for cervical and bowel screening programmes, poor uptake of childhood immunisation programmes and some aspects of sexual health.

·         Routine data for ethnic and minority groups was not readily collected and therefore more difficult to analyse.  There was a need to engage with these groups in conversation to ensure that they understood what the screening programmes were and what the barriers were to them taking the screening tests.

·         Community Connectors were being recruited to engage with community groups to understand the barriers they faced.

·         Providing information on the symptoms of TB to enable people to recognise the symptoms sooner was important and ensuring people knew that treatment for TB was free as this might help take away the stigma of TB.

·         Dr Robin thanked Dr Henrietta Ewart and Dr Anne McConville for developing the Health Protection Steering Group and congratulated them on the partnership working which had helped to develop the report.

 

RESOLVED

 

The Board:

 

1.    Noted the Annual Health Protection Report for Peterborough City Council, 2014;

2.    Noted that the Task and Finish Groups will report their recommendations to improve uptake of childhood immunisations and bowel and cervical cancer screening to the Health and Wellbeing Board in June, and produce costed plans for the Health and Wellbeing Programme Board;

3.    Supported the recommendation that Public Health England (PHE) and PCC public health explore the roll out of the PHE pilot of testing for latent tuberculosis (TB) infection to eligible new migrants from high prevalence communities in line with the new collaborative TB strategy;

4.    Asked the Children and Families Board to progress an action plan to address continuing high rates of teenage pregnancy;

5.    Supported the recommendation that the public health team meet with the sexual health commissioner to explore opportunities in the sexual health contract to improve HIV and chlamydia screening in relevant population groups;

6.    Supported the recommendation that qualitative and survey methods should be used to understand health beliefs and barriers to uptake of services to inform the Eastern European Joint Strategic Needs Assessment and subsequent community engagement and development.
