Hampshire County Council has opened a consultation to seek the views of those who use the County Council’s services and other interested stakeholders on a number of proposed changes to specific services.
This consultation outlines proposals that could enable Hampshire County Council’s Public Health Service to re-focus its ring-fenced budget to fund a broader range of Public Health support across the County Council by delivering savings in the following four areas:
- Substance misuse treatment;
- Stop smoking (known as Smokefree Hampshire);
- Sexual health;
- 0-19 Public Health Nursing, which includes health visiting and school nursing.
It also seeks to understand the potential impacts of the proposed options and invites other suggestions on how savings could be made, to help inform its final approach.
The consultation will be open from midday Monday, 14 June 2021 until midnight Monday, 9 August 2021 and is published at the link below:
