Cut S01 (Sexual Health services)
Cut S05 (Public Mental Health)
Cut S07 (Sanctuary Scheme)

Reductions to Sexual Health and Contraception - This will reduce capacity and resource for the Darlington population which will increase the pregnancy rates (particularly teenage) which will in turn increase pressure on other services. Reducing the availability of procedures and access, can only be negative. Reductions to Public Mental Health - Not enough Mental Health resources anyway let alone with any further reductions. This is one area with little support already and to reduce it further, will be catastrophic. Sanctuary Scheme - This will just increase the numbers of DV and homelessness.

Reductions to Sexual Health and Contraception - Young people are the highest risk of STI’s Young people are the highest risk of pregnancy Young people are the most unlikely to access services Negative impact on 0-19 service and remaining service providers Sanctuary Scheme - Several of our most vulnerable families have worked with Sanctuary which has enabled them to remain in their homes. Disruption to family life Negative impact on emotional health and well-being Negative impact on schooling Negative impact on other services The health and well-being of children, young people and families is likely to be at risk of significant harm Public Health Other (S08)Home Improvement Agency - Significant impact on vulnerable families to fund own needs or go without. Reductions to Obesity funding - No services available to support obese children and families following NCMP screening. Proposals from DBC are unrealistic to vulnerable and hard to reach families Negative impact on 0-19 service to provide sustainable support. Negative impact on physical health of children, young people and families. Increased demand on remaining services. The future health and well-being of children and young people is likely to be at risk. Reductions to Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference - Added pressures to other remaining services. Children, young people and families in Darlington are likely to be at greater risk of harm

For me as a GP all of the proposed public health reductions will have a negative impact
