Call for views on proposals to help the NHS deliver its Long Term Plan

NHS Home Page 2
As part of a national engagement exercise, NHS England and NHS Improvement have launched a call for views on how targeted amendments to the law could help local and national health organisations work together more effectively to improve services for patients.

The suggestions include changing the law to:

  1. • Encourage local health organisations to work more closely together, towards a shared goal of improving the health of the communities they serve, the quality of services, and the sustainability of the NHS;

  2. • Reduce delays and costs associated with current procurement processes, while maintaining patient choice and introducing a new ‘best value’ test to ensure value for money for taxpayers;

  3. Allow different health organisations – such as hospitals, groups of GPs and voluntary groups and social enterprises – to come together to provide joined-up services which better meet the needs of local people in partnership with local government, and;

  4. • Remove the barriers to greater coordination between the national NHS organisations, creating a single national voice for the NHS and making it easier to work together on the most important issues facing the health service, such as prevention, the workforce, and harnessing the opportunities presented by digital technology.

For further information about the proposals and how you and your stakeholders can get involved, visit NHS England’s website.

 


Sefton Latest on Formby Village Trees

Sefton Council has published this statement regarding the future of the trees in Formby Village.

Horse Chestnut

Further discussions have taken place between Sefton Council and Formby Parish Council regarding two dangerous trees in Formby village due to be removed next month.

Both trees, situated outside Cassidy’s and Boots, will be removed between October 4 and 15 after they were declared unsafe and dangerous.

However, Sefton Council has written to the Parish Council asking for them to agree to a number of conditions that could halt the works taking place.

This includes the Parish Council using an independent arboriculturalist to inspect the trees and provide a written statement saying both trees can be retained and pose no threat to the public or to property in the short term.

A written statement would also be needed to indemnify the Council for any costs or claims that may arise should any part of these trees cause damage to people or property during the winter period and beyond.

Formby Parish Council would need to cover all costs for the written statements and works and any commitment would need to be received by the Council by October 1, 2018.

In addition all works required to make the trees safe must be carried out by October 15.

If this deadline is not met the scheduled removal will take place between October 4-15.

The two horse-chestnuts are scheduled to be removed due to the significant health and safety risk the dying trees are causing.

A spokesman for Sefton Council said:

“Our priority is and always will be the safety of residents and visitors to Formby.

“We believe both trees pose too much of a risk giving the impending winter weather and have earmarked them to be removed between October 4-15.

“However, following further discussions with Formby Parish Council, we have written to them with a number of conditions to try and draw a conclusion to this matter.

“We have given them until October 1 to meet these conditions otherwise the scheduled work to remove them will take place later that month.”
