Minutes:

The Deputy Director for Public Health submitted a report (copies of which had been circulated) providing the Board with a summary of a review commissioned from the Cheshire and Mersey Public Health Commissioning and Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership in response to the change in arrangements for breast screening women registered at Heald Green practices in spring of 2017. The report detailed the key issues arising from that work.

 

Carol Bailey, (Screening and Immunisations Manager, Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership) and Marie Coughlin (Screening & Immunisation Manager, Cheshire and Merseyside Public Health Network) also attended the meeting to respond to questions from the Board.

 

The following comments were made/ issues raised:-

Drop off rates a concern in Cheadle. Have suggested Massey Street as a possible location, but despite supportive local businesses this not happened. Still offer of ward funds to help with that.

 

·           Concerns were expressed about a reduction in screening rates in the Cheadle area. The removal of the screen facility in Heald Green was acknowledged and the possible impact of patients being called for screening in Macclesfield identified as a possible contributing factor in the reduction given the difficulties of accessing the site.

·           Concerns were expressed that the performance against the 3 year round target was just above 50%, meaning that levels of uptake in Heald Green were below the England average. In response it was clarified that there was a difference between uptake and round length, with the reduce performance due to mergers of practices leading to higher than expected invitations. Current levels of round length were now back to within the 90% target. The statistics may also be misleading as the round length may people 3 years and 1 week but the performance indicator gave a worse impression of the situation. It was commented that the decline in uptake was part of a national trend, with reductions higher in more affluent communities. This may be in part due to the increased awareness and information provided by the NHS when communicating with people being called.

·           It was queried whether the public felt better able to access information and thereby make informed choices, meaning they may perceive their risk to be lower. In response it was stated that there was insufficient evidence available to say for certain, but that the Stockport Together model was designed to ensure that conversations were had with service users whenever possible to highlight where there were outstanding tests or screenings. As part of a GM wide review of cancer screening the reasons the public had for taking up, or not, screenings would be explored.

·           Concerns were expressed that despite falling uptake rates there was no indication of the steps being taken to address whether changes in delivery of screenings were needed, such as changing the sites where screening was offered. The John Lewis Department Store and Massey Street Car Park in Cheadle were suggested as possible alternatives. In response it was stated that these alternatives and others were being explored but that there were often significant practical challenges to overcome. It was also commented that there was not one simple answer to improving uptake and a range of options needed to be considered, including time of appointments as well as location.

·           Surprise was expressed that there was not higher rates of uptake for free screening services. In response it was stated that there was evidence that people’s perception of screening, such as potential painfulness, had an impact, but that it was also noticed that uptake reduction when the NHS information leaflet changed to give patients a more informed choice.

·           It was commented that the particular challenges being experienced in Heald Green highlighted the need to ensure that the whole screening system was able to adapt to changing arrangements on the ground, in particular the move to larger GP practices.

 

RESOLVED – That in relation to the review of Breast Screening  ...  view the full minutes text for item 5.

Healthy Ageing Strategy pdf icon PDF 57 KB

To consider a report of the Deputy Director of Public Health.

 

Stockport has a population that is older than most places in the UK, and one that is also growing older.  This presents a fantastic opportunity to embrace and adopt a strategy to make the borough a place where people can age, really well.

           

This strategy presents an overview of work already ongoing to promote healthy, positive ageing in Stockport, highlighting the areas where a difference can be made to ageing well, and posing a challenge to think more broadly and collectively, and to take forward the key actions that will make a difference.

 

The Health and Wellbeing Board is invited to consider and adopt Healthy Ageing Strategy.

 

Officer contact: Dr Donna Sager, 0161-474-3928, donna.sager@stockport.gov.uk

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Deputy Director of Public Health submitted a report (copies of which had been circulated) inviting the Board to consider a Stockport Health Ageing Strategy, developed in recognition that the population of Stockport was one of the oldest in the UK, and was getting older. The Strategy aimed to ensure the borough was a place where people can age well.

 

The Strategy also needed to be understood in the context of the Greater Manchester Ageing Hub that linked with the Centre for Ageing Better, to take opportunities to undertake activity could be more appropriately delivered on a wider footprint.

 

It was clarified that the Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group had yet to consider the Strategy.

 

The following comments were made/ issues raised:-

 

·         This Strategy drew on the out ‘Aging Well’ elements of Health & Wellbeing Strategy that already had broad support from partners and stakeholders.

·         Ensuring unpaid carers were given smart support and care was vital as they were going to become ever more important.

·         Ensuring active older people would begin with encouraging active children, so how was that going to be encouraged? In response it was stated that the Strategy had no age parameters to reflect this. There was also a physical activity strategy, and the Schools Sports Partnership that had proved very successful and active.

·         What support was available for encouraging community groups and youth groups in getting people active? In response it was stated that Public Health had good links with community groups but many were self-sustaining and required little intervention. In many cases it was better to allow them to 'get on with it’. It was further commented that physical activity did not have to be sport.

 

RESOLVED – (1) That the draft Healthy Ageing Strategy and the ’direction of travel’ set out within it be endorsed.

 

(2) That the Deputy Director of Public Health be requested to submit a report to a future meeting in relation to the Stockport School Sports Partnership.

·         In response to a question about whether the programme was on time it was stated that the original timescales had been changed, and the programme had been adapted. Discussions were ongoing about how 7-day working at the neighbourhood level would operate, as the work of GPs, district nursing and social work needed to be synchronised. There was no indication that targets would not be met. In relation to the realisation of benefits, the modelling suggested a number of risks that would need to be managed and monitored closely to understand the effect. It was further commented that the Board had a role in shaping what featured in the monitoring of Stockport Together.
