Chief Executive's Health Comment - June 2016

It’s been a while since I offered a health-related comment piece and in truth I still don’t have a lot of new news. There have been some changes at the health and care transformation team, but still no public, patient or VCSE opportunities to engage; and the Health and Wellbeing Board remains just out of touch. That said, with our new county council role about to kick off, I am hopeful of making some headway in both these key areas of engagement very soon.

Staffordshire Libraries is committed to ensuring that all young readers have the opportunity to become fluent and confident readers who enjoy and appreciate fiction. The Library Service supports this aim by participating in the annual national Summer Reading Challenge. This initiative encourages children aged 4-11 to read six books during the long summer holiday. There are incentives along the way and a certificate and medal for every child who completes the Challenge.
