Consultation process

This report and the options contained within it have been developed as a result of the reduction in Public Health funding available and the requirement to offer a more targeted service aimed at those in most need. The two smoking advisers who TUPE’d into CYC on 1 April 2016, Community midwives and the CCG have all be part of the decision making process.
