star this property answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) and the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC) introduced a risk-based approach for countries reporting Zika infection ahead of cases reported from Florida in the United States of America. PHE and NaTHNaC issued travel guidance about Florida as soon as cases were announced. A copy of this guidance is attached. The first locally acquired cases of Zika were reported from Florida on 29 July 2016. The guidance advised pregnant women to consider postponing non-essential travel to Florida. Links to NaTHNaC’s detailed, site-specific advice allowed clinicians to have in-depth discussions of the transmission risks in Florida with potential travellers.</p><p>A high risk alert was issued as more information became available stating: “The risk in Miami-Dade county is considered high and pregnant women are advised to postpone non-essential travel to Miami-Dade county until after their pregnancy.” Advice on reducing the risk of sexual transmission of Zika infection was also issued, which is included within the attached guidance.</p><p>The situation is constantly under review and assessment, and travel and sexual transmission guidance is updated regularly as new information emerges from Florida.</p>

star this property answer text <p>On 25 January 2017, the Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust board approved work to examine the case for establishing a wholly owned subsidiary for estates and facilities management. On 20 December 2017, after staff consultation had taken place, the Trust board approved the formation of a wholly owned subsidiary.</p><p>NHS Improvement has reviewed key relevant documents including the Trust board paper evidencing informal staff engagement about the proposed changes during October 2017, as well as a formal 30-day staff consultation during November 2017. Following the staff consultation, the Trust made changes to its proposal which benefitted the staff transferring to the new company. The Trust has confirmed to NHS Improvement that it took legal advice in relation to its duty to consult staff on the changes.</p><p> </p><p>The Trust did not establish the wholly-owned subsidiary prior to consulting clinical commissioning groups (CCGs). NHS Improvement has seen correspondence from Somerset CCG on 19 December 2017 giving permission for the wholly-owned subsidiary to be a permitted subcontractor. NHS Improvement has seen similar correspondence from NHS England Specialised Commissioners on 22 November 2017 approving the wholly-owned subsidiary as a permitted subcontractor. The Trust board took the decision to approve the formation of the wholly owned subsidiary on 20 December 2017.</p><p>Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has told NHS Improvement that it has not been necessary to spend additional time beyond normal Board business discussing clinical matters as a result of establishing a wholly-owned subsidiary company.</p><p> </p>
