ANY OTHER BUSINESS THAT THE CHAIRMAN CONSIDERS URGENT

Minutes:

Members discussed the following items:

 

           The ‘Doctors of the World’ Mobile Clinic pilot had commenced yesterday at St Paul’s.  Members noted that this was a joint commission with the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), funded by the CCG, and data would be generated regularly.  The positioning of the clinic would be based on feedback from outreach workers, whilst being mindful of safe parking.  Initially, funding would cover 1 operation a week, for a 6 month pilot and was open to all, regardless of status.  The Chairman and Members thanked officers for this innovation, which sought to improve the health and wellbeing of homeless clients and build the trust needed to encourage them to come off the  streets.

 

           The Severe Weather Emergency Plan (SWEP) had been activated on Friday, 29th November and subsequently extended to 3rd December.  Members noted that this had been the first SWEP activation this year with 30-40 offers recorded but only 1 accessed.
