8 HWBB Launch Event Feedback
Liked the 'Big Conversation' style of event - want a follow up and soon! High participation on the day and positive - even though the current economic climate, public sector cuts are challenging. Talked openly about the 'tough stuff' and impacts. Participants want public representation/input into H&WBB - beyond a 'token rep from HealthWatch' A process for gathering public views needs to be formed that feeds into H&WBB and Commissioning priorities and that cuts across LA, PBC, Voluntary and Community Sectors Want to know about level of scrutiny and how this will work - educational opportunities here Creation of a Networked Board - want a diagram of where H&WBB sits 'Root and branch' review of existing groups, terms of reference and how they will fit with H&WBB Communication plan needed for ongoing involvement of stakeholders and influencing of key H&WB priorities

9 DPH Leadership Community engagement needs to move beyond consultation into empowerment, which will involve the transfer of power and resources to communities themselves Work towards integration of primary and community care services with statutory, voluntary and independent sector neighbourhood services, providing a more holistic user-centred focus. Public health commissioning mechanisms to drive development of health improvement skills, resilience and leadership within local populations, making the concept of co-production of health between services and communities a reality Making strengthening the core economy of neighbourhood and family the central task of all public services Using the power of Public Health Commissioning, locally coordinated eg through H & WBBs, to explore new models of integrated delivery. For example, develop forms of community-oriented primary care appropriate to underserved communities with poor health outcomes Bottom-up action plans to integrate services as part of the co-production approach with communities, can provide the cornerstones of emerging strategic approaches to Community-based Budgets. 9

11 Local Marmot Action Plan
A ‘conscience’ for the new Health & Well-Being Board The 6 Marmot objectives provide the strategic framework Joint Strategic Needs & Assets Assessment highlights the health inequalities Priorities are being set in the context of an emerging policy agenda Plan includes health and well-being challenges throughout life - start well, develop well, live well, work well, age well Engaging local businesses through Food Sector and Well at Work Got cross sector commitment to understand and tackle causes of poor health locally

12 Heart of Wigan CVD prevention partnership was established last year to raise the profile of CVD prevention work and specifically advocate for healthier policy and environments. Over the last 6 months, Heart of Wigan commissioned a piece of work examining the potential impact of local public policy on CVD across the borough based on the national consensus from a range of leading experts on the potential health impact of policy modification and to secure local consensus amongst senior decision makers on how receptive local conditions are to change or introduce related policy. The shortlist of 8 policies which had senior management support is now being taken out to community consultation to gather residents’ views. Heart of Wigan is also developing a CVD commissioning framework to guide future local investment in the area, 12

13 Lifestyle Smoking in the Townships
26% of the adult population of Wigan borough are smokers compared with 24% in England overall. The Health and Lifestyle Survey (2005/2006) suggests that younger residents are more likely to be current smokers than older residents and men are more likely to have smoked than women. Wigan South Township has one of the highest average smoking estimates of any Wigan’s townships at 34.5% and is higher than both the England and Wigan borough average. Estimates range from 26.4% to The majority of areas in Wigan South Township have estimates that are among the highest in the borough. The area in the north of Wigan South Township has the highest smoking estimate of any area in Wigan borough. Percentage of adults who smoke across Wigan Borough with areas in Wigan South Township highlighted 13

15 Healthy Hospital Programme
This programme contributes towards the QIPP agenda by adding value in a hospital setting through focusing on the prevention of ill health. The programme adopts the framework set out by the World Health Organisations’ Healthy Hospitals initiative by actively supporting and encouraging the health and wellbeing of patients, staff and visitors to ensure that the organization adopts a health promoting culture as routine practice. Good progress has been made in developing and delivering health improvement interventions around smoking, alcohol, healthy eating and breastfeeding as well as working towards improving staff health and wellbeing. A robust smoking cessation brief intervention programme has been rolled out on a trust wide scale and smokers are now actively targeted in the Pre Op Assessment clinic. An innovative training approach is currently being developed to ensure that every opportunity becomes a health improvement opportunity; this will ensure that staff receive the appropriate skills to initiate brief ‘health chats’ that will promote and protect health and wellbeing of patients & staff. 15

16 Smoke Free Wigan & Leigh
Established in May 2010 to reduce tobacco related health inequalities; to reduce smoking prevalence across the borough by developing and delivering a local Tobacco Control Strategy and Action Plan. Locally, the issues include: a high prevalence of smokers, especially within the more deprived areas, illicit tobacco, and underage sales. Specific work streams include: reducing the supply of illicit tobacco, promoting smoke-fee homes and play areas, reducing the number of young people that start smoking, and assisting every smoker to quit smoking, particularly from disadvantaged communities. The objectives are to strategically plan and commission effective, evidenced based interventions for tobacco control. 2 Cabinet members assist in Chairing the Alliance and there is clinical engagement on the Steering Group from the Cardiology Consultant at WWL , the PEC Chairman. Other partners are Public Trading Standards , Ashton, Leigh & Wigan Community Health Care, Wrightington, Wigan & Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, Environmental Health, Greater Manchester Police, Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service, Children & Young People’s Service’s, Adult Services , Wigan & Leigh Housing, HMRC, Community Engagement, Wigan & Leigh CVS, 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Wigan Leisure & Culture Trust. 16

18 Lose Weight Feel Great The Public Health Directorate leads on commissioning a comprehensive portfolio of services and programmes to promote healthy weight. Our flagship programme is the Lose Weight Feel Great care pathway for managing excess weight in adults that was launched in January 2009. With services for overweight clients right through to bariatric surgery it has capacity to provide treatment for over 10,000 clients per annum across a range of services. It is one of the most comprehensive integrated pathways in the country and has significantly increased access to highly personalised advice and support services focused on achieving long term weight loss and maintenance. In the first 20 months of the programme, approvals for bariatric surgery have been reduced by 73% saving the PCT over £ Over 13,500 people have called the access hub for help and advice and nearly 11,000 people have been referred into services. Risk is the fragmentation of the commissioning budget may impact on this type of approach where currently the commissioning for all services related to obesity sits within Public Health. 18

19 Health and Work The ‘What Makes Wigan Work’ Worklessness Strategy for the Borough has seen Wigan be one of the top performing Boroughs in Greater Manchester at supporting people back into work e.g. reduction in Mental Health IB claimants. Achieved through the full allocation of Working Neighbourhoods Funds to the strategy and its implementation, strong partnerships, and responsive commissioning Maximising opportunities within the private sector and building public health capacity within the workforce Key business making huge strides in workplace health e.g. HJ Heinz ‘Full of Beans’ programme

20 Make Every Contact Count
This approach of developing the skills of frontline staff in basic behavioural change techniques specifically seeks to provide frontline staff with the skills, tools and confidence to embed prevention in their day-to-day work with clients. Its based on the premise of making the most of the thousands of encounters that public sector, voluntary and community organisations have with people every week and using these contacts as opportunities to raise health issues and signpost people to appropriate support services. Locally, Public Health is working with a wide range of organisations to develop staff skills and confidence in raising health issues and signposting people to appropriate support and advice. Organisations committed to this programme include: Ashton, Leigh & Wigan Community Healthcare NHS Trust; Wrightington, Wigan & Leigh NHS Trust; Wigan Leisure & Culture Trust; Wigan Council; 5 Boroughs NHS Trust; and Groundwork. Essential Public Health is a 2 hour training programme that is being used to provide staff with the practical skills and confidence to deliver ‘health chats’. 20

21 RSPH Level 2 in Health Improvement
The Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH) level 2 award in Understanding Health Improvement is being utilised in a number of ways: Train the trainer within local public sector, community and voluntary organisations to build local training capacity. Training within local public sector, community and voluntary organisations to ensure that public health is better understood and health messages being given out are as consistent as possible. Current plans include train the trainer for teaching support staff in the level 2 programme so that it can be delivered to all 14+ pupils in the borough .Training for Greater Manchester Fire Service community staff and active fire fighters. Wigan has a large number of amateur sports teams, particularly focused on Rugby League. The volunteers who run these clubs are being trained in RSPH so that holistic messages are given to young people rather than a sole focus on physical activity. This is supporting the borough’s Healthy Stadia programme and has led to Wigan having the first two amateur clubs in Europe to achieve Healthy Stadia status. Supporting staff health & wellbeing - Administrative staff in Public Health and wider PCT have successfully completed the qualification and the qualification is starting to be delivered to staff in primary care settings. 21
