The Chairman of the County Council referred the Notice of Motion on Public Health (see Report) submitted to the County Council on 15 February 2019, to Mrs Amanda Jupp the Cabinet Member for Adults and Health, for consideration.
The aim of the motion was to
highlight the financial challenges faced by Public Health in West
Sussex in carrying out vital work to improve the health of the
local population and reduce health inequalities, and calls upon
Cabinet to request that central government supports the
‘prevention first’ approach by providing fair and
equitable funding for West Sussex.
The Cabinet Member for Adults and Health supports the motion as it was intended as a supportive, cross party motion, calling for wider understanding and support to the council’s public health function. The Cabinet Member for Adults and Health intends to propose an amendment to the motion at the County Council meeting on 5 April 2019.
