Minutes:

As there was none present at the meeting, for the area covered by the Board, it was suggested that this be discussed further with a wider group of GPs and brought back to the next Board meeting.

  1. Reduce number of Local Authority Councillors on the Board;

 

  1. Appoint a GP for Peterborough as the Vice Chair at the next Board meeting;

Report On The Findings Of The Task And Finish Groups On Bowel And Cervical Cancer Screening And Immunisation Uptake In Peterborough pdf icon PDF 93 KB

The Board is requested to consider the implications of the findings of the Task and Finish groups and support the recommendations.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Board received a report which presented the findings of the task and finish groups established to investigate the poor uptake rates for the bowel and cervical cancer screening programmes, and of childhood immunisations and prenatal pertussis in Peterborough.

 

The Interim Consultant in Public Health introduced the report and provided an overview update. Key points highlighted and raised during discussion included:

 

  • It was found that uptake for cervical cancer screening was lower among younger woman and in more deprived areas.
  • Possible influences for this were cultural awareness, ‘acceptability’ of the test and the migrant population.
  • The city had a lower than average take up of immunisations. It was thought this may be partly due to a lack of clarity regarding the timetable for immunisations and documentation that was incompatible with the systems used.
  • There was little awareness among pregnant woman in Peterborough of pertussis immunisations and midwives did not offer the service. The service needed to be considered more important.
  • The Council had a responsibility to promote the services and NHS had provided £9,000 to assist with communications.
  • It was suggested that access be made via school in order to ensure the migrant population was not missed.
  • With regards to Whooping Cough, the Local Chief Officer would consider whether this could be combined with the six week baby check.
  • The issue was raised that many workplaces may not take up a wellbeing programmes, as they were unaware of the free availability of services. The Director of Public Health would explore this.

 

RESOLVED that the Health and Wellbeing Board supported the recommendations of the Task and Finish Groups to:

 

  1. Develop and deliver targeted community engagement, health education and information programmes to raise awareness, promote uptake and to better understand health beliefs and barriers to uptake of cancer screening and immunisations, based on the findings in the reports and the best evidence of effectiveness. Consider use of community leaders, social media and ‘community connectors’ to achieve greater reach with the target populations;

 

  1. Explore undertaking a Did Not Attend Analysis (DNA) pilot of those who have not taken up cancer screening to:

·         Validate data quality and continuing residence

·         Explore reasons for DNA

·         And scope resource implications to inform the development of an action plan;

 

  1. Develop a targeted and more responsive immunisation offer through better explanation of immunisation schedules; targeted reminders to parents; regularly updating contact details and capturing documented immunisations in the home country at new patient registration; and

 

Review progress and uptakes in a year.
