Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, NHS Halton Clinical Commissioning Group should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear NHS Halton Clinical Commissioning Group,

After six years and still using the poor and disillusioned to warrant cascades of well-paid committees and CEOs to give ideas and theories to ‘improve’ the poor and disillusioned live expectancy (Dave Parr’s presentation to the CCGs AGM sept 2014 the habits of the poor at the core of the problem).
We are aware ‘or should be’ that the root cause is in the names of Runcorn and Widnes.
Widnes was one of the dirty towns of England from the early part of the 20th century through to the present times in the 1950s & 60s local factory workers were regularly tested for mercury oxide in their blood and retired early to die early. With the help of a thoughtful planning department sticking a waste burning incinerator spewing out not only dirt particles containing mercury oxide but also radioactive particles in Runcorn as kept the area’s label. Men and women worked and lived and still do in this polluted atmosphere.
What progress has the Halton CCG made in six years.

Yours faithfully,

James A Owen

Dear FOITEAM (NHS MIDLANDS AND LANCASHIRE COMMISSIONING SUPPORT UNIT),

Clarification for the FOI sent 13 Dec 20. Halton CCG.

Halton (Runcorn & Widnes) is nationally renowned for its pollution. What steps since 2014 has Halton CCG factored in when dealing with the health of the population under their responsibility.

Is the air quality within Halton taking in to consideration when decisions are made as to prevention of strokes, heart disease, lung cancer and chronic respiratory diseases.

Who on the committee has the expert knowledge of measuring and controlling air pollution.

Does the committee have access to confidential information as to any further planning applications for incinerators within a 20 mile radius of Halton.

Yours sincerely,

James A Owen
