Minutes:

Dr Ruth Gelletlie, Living Streets Leeds, submitted a written statement to the Board as follows:

 

‘How will the NHS work with partners to support measures to increase physical activity among the communities they serve in the proposed Active Travel Neighbourhoods?

 

Physical inactivity is a major cause of ill health in Leeds, being a risk factor for diseases such as dementia, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and many cancers. Evidence shows building exercise into our daily lives is the best way to tackle this. Active travel, walking and cycling instead of using the car, especially for short local journeys, also helps to improve air quality, and can contribute to tackling a key cause of the climate emergency.

 

Leeds City Council has a long-standing ambition and programme of work to promote active travel. Since lockdown this has been given new momentum, when Leeds successfully bid for funds from the Government’s Emergency Travel Fund to support its Connecting Leeds COVID-19 Transport Response. This includes proposals to create active travel neighbourhood schemes in Hyde Park, Holbeck, Lincoln Green, Chapeltown, Beeston and Otley. The aim is to make more space for walking and cycling by closing roads to through traffic and to help deter 'rat-running'.

 

The introduction of such schemes in Waltham Forest has produced demonstrable health benefits. The need for interventions to increase levels of physical activity has never been greater. The NHS has a key role to play in both supporting the introduction of these local schemes and using every clinical contact to encourage their patients to embrace the opportunities for walking and cycling locally.’

 

Members recognised the importance of the issue, and in particular, the challenge of engaging in physical activity throughout the winter months, especially for older people. Partners highlighted some of the initiatives in place across organisations in Leeds to encourage healthy and active lifestyles, including a new referral pathway that has been introduced, enabling NHS partners to refer patients to the Council’s Active Leeds service for a range of activities including green travel. Additionally, it was noted that the Council provides Physical Activity Champion training to support people to give others the tools to become more active, and there are now 55 champions across the city.

Minutes:

The Leeds Maternity Programme Board submitted a report that provided an overview of refreshing the Leeds Maternity Strategy. The Chair noted that before the meeting, members took part in a listening exercise to hear the experiences of people from different Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities and how they experience the maternity service.

The following were in attendance:

-  Sue Gibson, Head of Midwifery, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

 

Representatives delivered a presentation, highlighting the following:

 

·  Maternity services as a strength for the city and an example of the health and care system working together positively in an integrated way to give every baby having the best possible start in Leeds.

·  Priorities identified for the next five years are strongly informed by both local population data from the Leeds Maternity Health Needs Assessment (available on the Leeds Observatory) which was completed in 2020 and welcomed as a great resource for the partnership in refreshing the strategy, and the insight that comes from listening to what matters to the women and families of Leeds;

·  Leeds has been rated amongst the top 5 for staff kindness, patient experience and overall quality of care in the last two years;

·  Upcoming reconfiguration of hospital maternity services into one of the new hospitals;

·  Significant health inequalities in the city, in line with the national picture, people from Black and Asian communities have poorer access and outcomes, which is addressed as a key priority in the refreshed strategy moving forward.

·  Overview of the proposed draft priorities of the refreshed Leeds Maternity Strategy, which has been drawn from the data and various routes of engagements.

 

Members discussed a number of matters, including:

 

·  Members thanked Jane Mischenko, Sue Gibbs, their teams and the approach taken by the Leeds Maternity Programme Board in refreshing the Leeds Maternity Strategy and the reconfiguration of hospital maternity services welcoming the level of engagement, which was highlighted as good practice.

·  Members emphasised the importance of ensuring our engagement reaches people who would not normally participate in formal consultations and welcomed the approaches taken to enable this.

·  Ensuring that people continue to be fully supported in accessing maternity services during COVID-19 and welcomed the focus on putting women and families at the heart of those services.

·  Foetal Alcohol Syndrome. Members highlighted the need for future strategic plans to include specific focus on public awareness of drug and alcohol misuse during pregnancy, and early detection and diagnosis of Foetal Alcohol Syndrome. It was noted that the Best Start Plan addresses health and wellbeing of expectant mothers from conception, and specifically addresses the risks of drug and alcohol misuse and around the wider determinants of health and wellbeing.
