PRESENTATION BY MR GARETH JONES (ADVERTISED AS MRS A WALKER),
PRIMARY CARE TRUST
A presentation was given by Mr Gareth Jones, Director of Strategic Planning of East & North Hertfordshire Primary Care Trust. In summary: Cases of Swine Flu have dipped during the school holiday months but are expected to rise again. Currently it is not considered a particularly serious virus, comparable to normal winter flu. There are two approaches to tackling it:
issue antiviral treatment (Tamiflu) which reduces the symptoms and as a result reduces the spread. Three collection points had been established, Welwyn/Watford (where the majority of cases are coming from) and subsequently Hertford to serve East Herts. These centres are now CLOSED and instead pharmacists will provide the service. Six are signed up and the Primary Care trust is in discussion with others hopefully to include one in Bishop’s Stortford
vaccinate – the vaccine is being manufactured and is expected to be available mid October. A vaccination programme will be introduced starting with frontline staff, followed by people with existing chronic health conditions who are likely to develop complications if they contract flu. Carers for people with immuno-suppression and pregnant women will follow this, and then those over 65 with no underlying condition. This
represents about 25% of the population. Vaccinations require two visits and the precise process is still being defined. This scheme is nationally agreed.
The rationale for the original placement of the collection centre in Hertford was that it could also serve the south east part of Hertfordshire (Cheshire, Broxbourne etc). A request was also made for an MS nurse locally at the H&E hospital. Mr Jones agreed to take the question away for a response. Interviews are being held for two parkinsons disease nurses to supplement the one currently employed in Hertfordshire. It was asked was there a possibility of a full out of hours service in Bishop’s Stortford. The answer given was no. Mr Jones also reported that an urgent care centre is planned for Bishop’s Stortford. Currently the PCT is evaluating preferred bidders. A timescale cannot currently be given.
MINUTES OF THE TOWN COUNCIL MEETING HELD ON 3 AUGUST 2009
The following corrections were noted: Cllr Burlton is spelt without an ‘e’. Churches is incorrectly spelt Chuches. Cllr Jones is on the Electoral roll of St Michaels not Holy Trinity. In item (Crematorium) 186 the ‘current environment’ refers to the perceived lack of support from the council not
the economic environment. If the council became supportive the proponent would become enthusiastic about developing the Crematorium. It was RESOLVED that these minutes be accepted with the amendments noted.
A communication was received from the Bishop’s Stortford Golf Club requesting sponsorship for a centenary publication. It was agreed that the CEO would seek clarification of the request and then take the question back to finance. A note regarding SHINE was distributed. The Mayor stated that he had received a letter from Mr Austin (the proponent of the crematorium) who is seeking private land for his proposal as an alternative to the use of council owned land.
