Health Improvement Service Consultation
The Health Improvement contract is due to end next year. Public Health are planning to recommission services
to replace Be Well, and at the same time they need to make some cost savings on the new services. They want
to make sure they focus on the right things for Tameside.
Public Health are asking for your views to help design what the new services will look like and would be
very grateful if you could complete the consultation here
The deadline is 13 May 2021.
Domestic Abuse Codeword Scheme
The Home Office has launched a domestic abuse codeword scheme in thousands of pharmacies
across the UK. The ‘Ask for Ani’ codeword scheme allows those at risk or suffering from
domestic abuse to discreetly signal to pharmacy staff that they need help accessing support. A
trained pharmacy worker will offer a private space where they can understand if the victim needs
to speak to the police or would like help to access support services, such as a national or local
domestic abuse helpline.
