English term or phrase:Health Protection Scotland
The involvement of Health Scotland, Health Protection Scotland, and the Scottish Prison Service was welcome in terms of awareness-raising, as was the input from STRADA and NHS Education Scotland in terms of training and educating professionals.
The task was seen to be more appropriately lead by Health Protection Scotland and NHS Boards.
From April 2005, Health Protection Scotland (a new organisation which incorporates SCIEH) will continue its monitoring function, as above, but will also take on the role of co-ordinating the development, implementation and evaluation of the Hepatitis C Action Plan to ensure that knowledge relating to HCV is more effectively translated into health protection action.
There was also near unanimous support for the establishment of an APCG, and a number of respondents commented that the involvement of Health Protection Scotland in this was “particularly welcome” and would “add credence” to the process of implementing the Action Plan.
Another commented that paragraph 1.8 in the draft Action Plan should specify reporting mechanisms between Health Protection Scotland and those agencies which have responsibility for implementing the Action Plan.
However, this begs a series of questions – What ‘teeth’ will this Group have, what are its terms of reference and its lines of communication, how will it ensure actions are implemented, and what control will it have in reality over the various organisations and agencies who have been tasked with action, including Health Protection Scotland, particularly if resources are not increased to facilitate action.
The production of a Hepatitis C Annual Report by Health Protection Scotland was seen as positive, and one means of improving awareness of Hepatitis C among staff.
The economic analysis being undertaken by Health Protection Scotland to estimate future HCV burden of care is very important, and respondents made recommendations about how that work should be extended.
