          Page 5; Item 3.8; LAPA:
          KD reported that the LAPA group will next meet on 30 April 2009. They are trying to
           gain more representatives from CYP Service, specifically from Education.
          ACTION: KD to contact Andy Hawkins.                                                            KD

          5x60 Scheme: The team are currently looking into piloting a scheme at St.
           Christopher’s School. Children with special needs have fallen outside the remit of
           the 5x60 Scheme, until now. A person has been identified to take on the twelve-
           month post, to oversee this pilot, however they will require specialist support.
           Funding should be ready in time for a September start.

           Barclay) regarding funding for specialist children’s play.

          GC encouraged the group to visit the Health Challenge Wales web page and
           informed that those in-putting their post-code in to England’s alternative Change for
           Life, will receive a letter of apology stating that information will not be sent as they
           live in Wales.

          Page 6; Item 4.2; Multi-Agency Training:
          AR took the report to the CYPFWP Board (25.02.09). AR reported that she thinks
           the report was agreed in principle but that no one had the capacity to lead on it.
          AR reported that Tricia (TAC) is very accommodating with regards to arranging
           training for many different areas/topics but a great deal is carried out on “good will”.
          DD stated that the CYPFWP Board should have an overview of ALL training. This
           mapping exercise was started but so many changes have occurred that this will now
           need to be completely re-done.

       Families and Stronger Families. The details of which will be worked out following
       WAG’s approval for Wrexham to participate.

      AR asked about work around the “binge-drinking” problem. The main focus of
       In2Change Children and Young People Team is done around alcohol and cannabis
       use. YP have to engage with Substance Misuse workers and cannot be forced to do
       this, therefore engagement is a big part of the team’s work.

             DRAFT   AGENDA ITEM 2

Agenda Item and Details                                                                              Actions/Who
       VJ informed that they are looking at a pilot (adult services) involving those taken into
        the custody suite and how to engage them in educating them regarding the adverse
        effects of alcohol but discussions are only in the very early stages.
       Much of the work concerned with parents is currently limited to help-lines and ad-hoc
        advice. If the Police pick up YP that are drinking, they do carry out a home visit
        through the harm education scheme and referrals for the YP can be made to
       VJ stated that there is a project working with children (and whole family) where
        parental Substance Misuse is an issue. SMAT will be contributing funding to this
        project in 2009/10.

       YH will be attending Wakestock in Abersoch, she invited the group to forward their
        top three questions that they would like YP to be asked. In return for completing
        the questionnaire, YP will be given free contraception and sexual health advice. YH
        stated that the answers obtained from this should give a very good “snap-shot”.

       ACTION: JSh and VJ to meet and respond to the DEFS consultation (Ed Balls)                   JSh/VJ
        The group to forward any questions for consideration to YH.
   3.5.1 Terms of reference

        ACTION: Members asked to look at these and pass any comments to JS by
         the 3rd April 2009                                                                          ALL

       3.6    Young People’s Sexual Health Planning and Co-ordination Group
       This group has not met for some time due to a number of issues.
       ACTION: DD and GC to meet next week to discuss re-convening the group.                         DD/GC
        Reports have been back and forth to the LHB. The last time this report went before
        the LHB to gain additional funding for the extended hours/Saturday opening of the
        Info Shop, the group were told to “get on and get started”.
       DD reported that once a nurse who is willing to cover the Saturday morning is found,
        the Info Shop will start opening regularly on a Saturday morning.
       Jonathon Miller is pulling together issues around campaigning and marketing issues.
       ACTION: DD will bring the decision back to this group, once it is known.
       YH informed of commissioned training on sexual health, arranged through Bangor
        University. This training is more relevant for nurses but it is open to all professionals.

       ACTION: YH to circulate the information once received.
       The training event taking place in September is the last one and if there is enough
        interest from professionals in this area, it will take place in Wrexham.
       DD stated that it is important that all professionals within the Sexual Health Service,
        deliver the same, one message to Wrexham’s young people. Whatever Bangor
        deliver at these training sessions will be Wrexham’s message as well.
       DD reported that there has been a drop in teenage pregnancies here in Wrexham.
        This is now at a critical point and these numbers need to be driven down further.
        Wrexham is now the eleventh authority in Wales.
       The info outreach scheme scheme will be rolled out to outlying schools such as
        Maelor and Grango, as the YP that attend these find it difficult to get into Wrexham’s
        Town Centre.
       DD thanked AR, YH, VB, JSh and Jerry O’Keefe for their commitment to getting this

       project underway.
      AR reported that the North Wales Sexual Health Forum took place this morning.
       This meeting includes GUM (Genito-Urinary Medicine) consultants and others
       delivering a sexual health service. AR informed that this group has been suspended
       until September (at least) until the NHS re-structure has been completed.
      A transition group has been set up to oversee the changes in the mean-time.

      There has been an interesting development within the “Termination Service”.
       Llandudno Hospital will be undertaking first trimester terminations. Before now the
       nearest clinic for those requiring this service, was in Liverpool.
      PP felt that this could be an ideal time to make connections between termination
       services and grief and loss counselling services. PP informed that information on
       these services is on the website.

      ACTION: PP to forward information to group.                                                     PP

      AR informed PP that this information needs to be put on this group’s agenda in order
       to bring it to the group’s focus.
 3.7    Public Health Commissioning Group                                                             GC

      GC to circulate information to this group when the information has been                        GC
      The second meeting of this group’s members has taken place and they are
       concentrating on the development of the strategy (requiring the physical activity and
       nutrition information) and looking at gaps in provision. There is so much going on, a
       need to co-ordinate these services has been recognised. The group will also look at
       what is best in terms of commissioning these services.
      SH will be happy to visit any teams to talk through any issues around this topic, or is
       equally happy to talk through any issues over the telephone.
      ACTION: GC to ask SH to arrange another meeting with Mike Barclay, of the                     GC/SH
       Play Development Team.

      AGENDA ITEM: GC to arrange a half-day event, where interested parties can come                AGENDA

       issue regarding capacity.
      ACTION: GC report back to this group.                                                          GC
      AR questioned whether the Breastfeeding Group has been re-instated.
      JSh stated that a reporting structure on Breastfeeding is required as it is one of the
       Key Aims in Wrexham’s CYPP.

       3.7.4 Tobacco Reduction
      This is currently being updated and SH will be planning an event around this.
      ACTION: SH to keep this group informed                                                         SH

       3.7.5 Immunisation     [Lorna Burdge – Wrexham LHB]
      Wrexham is well up to reaching WAG’s target of immunising 96% of children.
      There are two new vaccines.
      Some GP practices carry out their own vaccinations and others have a SLA with the
      A two-day immunisation training course is being developed for community nurses,
       school nurses and practice nurses alike and a follow up course.
      Immunisations are very complex injections and must be given with care and up to
       date guidance.
      Travel immunisations have also been looked at with practice nurses.
      Lorna informed that there have been issues around properly recording
       immunisations and reported that while adverse reactions are extremely rare they
       would require immediate treatment.
      Lorna informed that part of her job is to check the weekly vaccination waiting lists. If
       these are getting longer, Lorna contacts the relevant surgery to find out the reasons
       for the wait. Lorna will do clinics for these surgeries if and when required.

      Counselling for parents is required. Vaccinations are a very emotive subject since
       rumours of a link between the MMR jab and Autism were made – although now
       known to be unfounded.
      Repercussions of this link have seen a drop in the number of children being
       vaccinated against Measles, Mumps and Rubella [MMR]. Now, childhood diseases
       that had been all but eliminated are making a return. There has been an outbreak of
       measles in Chirk and another (more recently) was confirmed in Ruabon. Despite
       this, parents are still choosing not to immunise their children.
      An MMR “catch-up” plan has been developed and noted changes are that uptake of
       the second MMR vaccination has increased, while the first MMR vaccination uptake
       has dropped further.
      The group looked at the October-December figures update (handout) Wrexham is
       still around the 90% mark.
      The problem with the HepMenC immunisations is that if the first vaccination is
       missed the two vaccinations cannot be given together, so missing one has a knock
       on effect.
      VB asked about numbers regarding migrant families but was informed that different
       cultures have different systems of vaccinations – very cultural, e.g. France does not
       vaccinate against meningitis and French immigrants will not have this vaccine, while
       the Portuguese have many separate vaccinations.
      YH reported that Wrexham is achieving about a 95% uptake on the HPV vaccine.
      As Immunisation is one of the Key Task Performance Indicators, AR asked the group
       how often Lorna should report back to this group. The group asked how often data is
       made available. Lorna informed that surgeries can take up to six-months to compile
       their data so data can be a good six-eight months behind.
      ACTION: Lorna to request an “exception report” for this group and to inform
       this group of any problems as they arise.                                                      LB

           YH reported that all information is also available on the NPHS’ website.

           3.7.6 Children’s Dental Health                                                               GC

           Dr Sandra Sandham will be attending the next Public Health commissioning Group
            meeting in April 2009.
           AR stated that problems are arising in this area as there is no fluoride in the water
