Proposals for commissioning a 0-19 Integrated Healthy Child Programme in Newcastle 2016

Public Health would like your comments on their proposals for the future commissioning of 0-19 Integrated Healthy Child Programme in Newcastle

Children

As part of the 2016-17 budget setting process, the Council consulted on its plans to undertake a service redesign and develop a new service specification in order to commission a 0-19 integrated Healthy Child service which would encompass both the School Nursing and 0-5 Health Visiting Service, with the intention to deliver both efficiencies and better streamlined services and outcomes for children and families.

The review is now complete and has included a full health needs assessment and a consultation exercise. Over 650 parents, carers, young people and professionals engaged with us as part of the review, which was conducted face to face and through surveys during May and June 2016

The feedback from this consultation has informed our proposals for the future model and commissioning of the 0-19 Integrated Healthy Child Programme in Newcastle.

We are consulting on those proposals until 28th July. This includes a drop in day in the Pandon Room at Newcastle Civic Centre on 22 July 2016, 10.30am to 4.00pm, where members from the project team will be available to answer any questions.

Here is our Proposal and Integrated Impact Assessment.  0-19_Healthy_Child_Programme_Commissioning_IIA140716.pdf

Detailed feedback from the consultation can be found here. 0-19_Review_Consultation_Report_Final.pdf

The Health Needs Assessment can be found here. Newcastle_0-19_Service_Needs_Assessment_FINAL.pdf

Blakelaw Annual Ward Priority Setting 2016

Blakelaw Ward Committee would like to talk to residents about their priorities for the area. Click on 'show more' for more information.

Blakelaw Library

The Annual Ward Event in Blakelaw will be used to talk to local residents, groups and agencies about their priorities for the coming year.  Following the meeting, the information will be used to produce an action plan for the ward which will help us all to think about how we can work together for the benefit of the area.  The action plan will also help the Ward Committee to determine where ward funds should be spent for maximum impact in the ward.

Draft priorities have already been written to start the discussion. These are based on what local people have said, and information we already have about the ward. Please take 5 minutes to give us your views by completing this survey by 31 July 2016 to tell us whether you agree with these draft priorities.  All information from the survey will be included in the discussions taking place when the event is held.

This survey is relevant to Blakelaw ward residents. If you would like to check which ward you live in, click the links to: Where you live / My neighbourhood.

Community Led Local Development 2016

Community-Led Local Development (CLLD) is about working with local communities to understand the challenges that can make it difficult for people to find employment, or start and run a business of their own.

Chillingham Road

This project will bring community representatives together with public, private and voluntary organisations to gather information about these issues and look at what support should be put in place to tackle them. A key part of Community-Led Local Development will involve exploring and raising awareness of the assets and resources within communities which help people to access jobs, training opportunities or go into business. We would like to know more about your experiences about access to employment, training and volunteering opportunities. Please complete our survey to tell us more.

If you have any questions, please email Amy Stillwell, Communities Officer, at: amy.stillwell@newcastle.gov.uk

Have your say - review of local transport services 2016

Please take part in the review of local transport services survey and give us your views on public transport in the North East. Click on 'show more' for more information.

NECANexus is carrying out a public consultation from 6 June to 1 August in order to collect views from a wide variety of stakeholders, in particular users of our services in order to help us understand how people access public transport and what is important to them (Nexus is the Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Executive).

This consultation will shape the future of public transport services that Nexus will provide on behalf of the Combined Authority. This year, Nexus is running an approved budget deficit but in agreeing that services could be protected in this way, the Leadership Board asked that the Tyne and Wear Sub-Committee (TWSC) lead a review of Nexus service provision during 2016, for implementation in 2017/18.

The consultation document describes the public transport services Nexus provides, and those that it does not. It asks you whether you use these services, how important they are.

View the document here: Review of local public transport services

Take part in the survey via the Nexus website here: Review of local public transport services survey.

Nexus is considering making savings across the services covered by the consultation – but there are some areas which are not included:

  • We can’t make changes to the basic element of the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme (the ‘bus pass’ for older and disabled people), covering travel on buses from 9:30am to 11pm on weekdays and all day at weekends. This is because Nexus has a statutory duty to reimburse bus operators for carrying anyone with the bus pass.
  • We are also not currently considering any plans to cut the Metro timetable, for financial reasons, because Metro receives most of its money from the fares that passengers pay, along with a grant from the Department for Transport and we have not experienced any major reductions in this funding.

Over the summer we will analyse the results and make recommendations to the NECA. There will be a further round of consultation on these recommendations later in the year.

Private Landlord Survey on refuse and flytipping 2016

Newcastle City Council is working to increase recycling within the city and tackle waste and fly-tipping. We are interested in how landlords and private rented tenants within the city currently dispose of waste. Click on 'show more' for more information.

FlytippingNewcastle City Council is working to increase the amount of recycling within the city and tackle waste and fly-tipping. To be able to tackle this we must first understand who disposes of waste, what problems they face, and why fly-tipping occurs. Therefore, we are interested in how landlords and tenants currently dispose of waste.

If you are a landlord in the private rented sector, we would like you to take ten minutes to help us by filling in this survey to tell us about the issues you face when dealing with waste issues relating to your properties.

This survey will be open until 31 July 2016. We will use the information gathered to determine how, as a Council, we can work with tenants and landlords to reduce the amount of waste fly-tipped, work with partners to provide services to remedy waste problems in the city, and offer advice and support  for landlords and tenants to find the best way to dispose of unwanted furniture and waste. Findings will be published on the Newcastle City Council website: Newcastle City Council.

If you have questions about this survey, please email gwen.smith@newcastle.gov.uk

You will note that we have not asked for any personal details. We will not use information from this survey for future enforcement action. It is being collected solely to help us  understand why fly-tipping occurs. You cannot be identified from your responses, and all replies will be kept confidential.

The survey refers to different areas of the city; there is a map of these areas here: Newcastle Map.
