Executive Member Update

To receive a verbal update from the Executive Member on matters relating to the Health and Public Protection portfolio, e.g the Police and Crime Panel and Local Strategic Health issues.

Minutes:

The Panel received a verbal update from Councillor T M Cartwright, MBE, Executive Member for Health and Public Protection on Local Strategic Health issues and Police and Public Protection matters.

 

Local Strategic Health Issues

 

The £58m redevelopment of Queen Alexandra Hospital (QAH) to improve Accident & Emergency provision is progressing well and has progressed into the final planning stage.  Options being considered for the redevelopment include an extension to the existing hospital, building on the North car park or building on the West car park.  Assurances have been given that none of these options will result in a reduction in the current level of car parking provision at the hospital.

 

Progress is being made with plans to utilise Fareham Community Hospital to provide kidney dialysis and it is hoped that patients will soon be able to start using this service.

 

Councillor Cartwright attended a recent meeting of the Fareham and Gosport Clinical Commissioning Group’s Community Engagement Panel.  Discussion at this meeting included the future direction of the committee, which is not clear at this time, and details of an ongoing survey being undertaken in connection with GP services.

 

Councillor Cartwright also attended a local Patient Group where various practices across the Borough provided reports.  The Managing Director for the Fareham and Gosport Clinical Commissioning Group also gave a presentation at the meeting which covered spending levels on a number of key service areas and outlined plans for dealing with the £15m overspend on the current financial year.

 

Police and Public Protection

 

The two new town centre security officers will be taking up their new roles on the 27 January. They will work in partnership with other agencies in tackling the town centre issues.

 

The next Police and Crime Panel will take place on 07 February.  The main topic for consideration will the pre-cept and it is likely that the Police & Crime Commissioner will want to take up the maximum increase available.

 

Hampshire County Council will be taking back responsibility for the delivery of the Supporting Families Programme.  This is very disappointing as Fareham has run the programme very successfully for a number of years.

 

RESOLVED that the Executive Member be thanked for providing the update on local strategic health issues and Police and Public Protection matters.

Health and Public Protection Scrutiny Panel Priorities

To provide an opportunity for Members to consider the scrutiny priorities for the Health and Public Protection Panel.

Minutes:

Members were invited to consider the Scrutiny priorities for the Health and Public Protection Panel.

 

Following discussion in respect of the items proposed for the agenda of the next meeting, it was agreed that the update on the changes to on street parking arrangements following the transfer of responsibility to Hampshire County Council would be postponed to a meeting later in the year. This is so that the Panel can pre-scrutinise proposals that will be put forward in a report to the Executive in June that outline measures to be put in place to deal with the impact that the changes have had. As the existing meeting date schedule for the Panel did not provide an opportunity for the pre-scrutiny of this report to take place within the required timescale, it was agreed that the meeting scheduled for 23 June 2020 would be brought forward to 19 May 2020.

 

RESOLVED that the meeting of the Panel scheduled to take place on 23 June 2020 be brought forward to 19 May 2020.
