Future Health protection service

Wirral’s existing Local Outbreak Hub is funded until 30th September 2022, by the Contain Outbreak Management Fund (COMF). 


This report seeks approval for the COMF grant to continue to fund the newly revised Health Protection Delivery Service for six months, from October 2022 until March 2023, when this funding stream will conclude, to ensure local resilience and continuity. The service will be evaluated throughout this period, to inform future plans.


The continuation of the local Heath Protection Service will contribute to the Wirral Plan Aims, in particular ‘Active and Healthy Lives’, supporting Wirral residents and communities to live safely with COVID-19 and protect the health of communities from infectious diseases and environmental hazards.
