A high level expert health protection strategy group, chaired by Eileen O'Meara, Director of Public Health for Halton, ensures a safe and resilient system and supports local authorities in their quality assurance role.
Key priorities of the Health Protection strategy are:
- Improved preparedness for prevention and control of influenza in care homes with a view to limiting transition and lower morbidity and mortality rates.
- Clear arrangements for the delivery of screening and immunisation services via improved communication with stakeholders and improved uptake rates
- Establish a Cheshire and Merseyside wide air quality forum and strengthen the air quality network
- Implement Antimicrobial Resistence (AMR) mapping survey
