Additional documents:

Minutes:

Alison Challenger, Director of Public Health, and David Johns, Consultant in Public Health gave a presentation summarising the Ward Health Profiles and Local Health Priorities for the Dales, Mapperley and St Ann’s Wards. They highlighted the following points:

 

(a)  There have been a lot of changes within the NHS in recent years and it is important to keep up with the health issues that are affecting citizens at a ward level;

 

(b)  The County of Nottinghamshire, excluding Bassetlaw has been divided into 3 partnership areas, City, South County and Mid Notts. Within the City partnership there are 8 Partnership Care Networks (PCN’s), these PCN’s mostly align with the City Council Area Boundaries, the PCN for this area is Nottingham City East;

 

(c)  The Ward Health Profiles are available on-line and aim to start a conversation with partners regarding the health demographic for each ward;

 

(d)  There is an 8 year gap in life expectancy between the least deprived and the most deprived areas of Nottingham City, with male life expectancy being 77 years, and female life expectancy being 81.1 years. Both of these figures are less than the England average;

 

(e)  Healthy life expectancy is also below average, with females born in Nottingham having a healthy life expectancy of 53.3 years – this is 10 years less than the England average and means females born in Nottingham can expect to spend more than a third of life in poorer health;

 

(f)  the impact of environmental factors on health should not be underestimated. Risk conditions such as poverty, unemployment, lack of social support, isolation and poor social networks all contribute to ill health;

 

(g)  smoking prevalence is higher in both St Ann’s and the Dales wards than it is across the City.

 

(h)  There are a high proportion of children in year 6 that are overweight or obese in St Ann’s and Dales Wards than the Nottingham average

 

(i)  6 out of the 7 GP Practices within the three wards record significantly higher prevalence of mental health illness than the England average;

 

(j)  The introduction of Link Workers and Social Prescribers has begun to tackle to environmental factors impacting on citizens health;

 

(k)  The Ward Health Profiles are designed to give a snapshot of the demographic of the Ward and to give an overview of health priorities;

 

Following questions and comments from the Committee the following further information was highlighted.

 

(l)  Mental health is a significant issue within the area. Despite a more open approach to talking about mental health there is still stigma attached to mental health issues and in some communities it is still not talked about. Breaking down the stigma and allowing people to access support is one of the main tasks in this field;

 

(m)The Ward Health Profiles will be published on line along with other health and wellbeing information. This will aid commissioning of services and allow the third sector to establish what services to plan, as well as link with similar services in different  ...  view the full minutes text for item 44.

Minutes:

(d)  Nottingham City East PCN has a number of aims for 2020/21 including:

·  Structured medication reviews for complex patients

·  Review of care home patients

·  Improving cancer awareness and screening

 

(e)   There are a number of challenges to address.

·  Recruitment can take a long time to find the right candidate and appoint them.

·  The physical space to see and treat people has been decreasing as smaller practices close and buildings get sold

·  The public are still very focused on seeing a GP when this is not always the best treatment option. Changing public perception and encouraging the public to adopt new ways of accessing healthcare is important.

·  There is more of a move to online consultations and video appointments. Ensuring patients are digitally literate and that systems can integrate is more important than ever before.

 

(f)  The rolling out of Patient Knows Best, an online system that allows professionals and patients to see their records is speeding up consultation times and review times. Patients have reported that they feel more empowered and more informed about their health care and treatment options;

 

Following questions and comments from Committee members the following additional informal was highlighted:

 

(g)  Government funding has allowed the PCN to employ new patient facing staff, a Network Pharmacist, Link worker and Social prescriber. There is also additional funding for further staff. The recruitment will commence once the PCN has assessed which positions would have the greatest impact on outcomes for patients;

 

(h)  Communicating with patients the importance of seeing the right healthcare professional is key. Patients have to realise that seeing a GP is not always the best or most appropriate option;

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Mark Lowe, Head of Housing & Regeneration, and Martin Poole, Area Planning Manager, gave a presentation updating the Committee on the Major development that are taking place and that are planned within the area. They highlighted the following information:

 

(a)  After years of planning and delays the Waterside development is now well underway. The development is a mix of residential and business properties, with green spaces and will include a 420 space primary school;

 

(b)  There are a number of developments across the area, including the former Morley School site and Wainright House where development has now been completed and properties been made available;

 

(c)  There are also a number of sites where plans have been submitted and are being developed which include a mix of residential properties, and public spaces, and include an element of social housing. These sites include the former Woodborough Inn site and the former Ellis School site;

 

(d)  The Eastside area of the city has been identified as a regeneration area for many years. Progress has stalled due to a number of issues but has recently been reinvigorated and a number of sites are now at the point of having planning permission, or identified as potential future development sites;

 

The committee asked a number of questions and the following information was highlighted:

 

(e)  Planning managers regularly meet developers and work with them to create developments that fit into the area, and works with the existing buildings. Each development is a working and changing project;

 

(f)  There are a number of developments in the planning phase that will be student accommodation. The Committee raised concerns about the number of student developments in a relatively small area, and how this will impact on residents, and existing services. The committee agreed that although welcoming students to the city is hugely beneficial, the appropriate placement of the developments is essential to ensure existing communities are not adversely impacted.

 

(g)  Concerns were specifically raised about whether the existing infrastructure was in place to ensure that students who will live in the planned developments are able to access services. GP practices are already stretched and although students are advised to register with the practice on campus, many prefer to register closer to where they live;

 

(h)  The committee were pleased that many of the developments planned included elements of social housing. They highlighted that the need for social housing in Nottingham is growing faster than the developments are being built and that planning colleagues should focus on this element and encourage developers, where appropriate, to include social housing;

 

(i)  The Borough Courts flats development has stalled in recent years. Many residents are wondering what is happening with the site. Planning colleagues confirmed that they were working with the developers to ensure that plans are appropriate for the site and hope to bring the development forward soon;

 

The Committee thanked Mark Lowe and Martin Poole for their presentation and the information it contained.
