Minutes:

Councillor Jerry Wickham presented the report which briefed Cabinet of the results of the Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus HNAs (Appendix 2 and 3) and presented the final Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus Strategy (SHBBVS (Appendix 1)) for approval. In presenting the report, Councillor Wickham expressed his desire to see the strategy adopted by partners through the Health and Wellbeing Board and the option to report progress to the Board and through the Health Select Committee.

 

In response to an issue raised by Councillor Ian Thorn, Councillor Wickham confirmed that he was satisfied that the resources were in place to implement the strategy, and that the pilot approach taken with the new Area Coordinators would include the aims of the strategy amongst their priorities.

 

In response to an issue raised by Councillor Jon Hubbard, Councillor Wickham supported officer comments that there were officers available to speak to groups in the community about these issues but that he should contact him personally if support was not forthcoming.

 

In response to an issue raised by Councillor Clare Cape, Councillor Richard Clewer stated that dedicated outreach works were available to offer support to rough sleepers on this and other health issues.
