To obtain approval to grant a licence to the Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust for use of rooms at the Richard Herrod Centre for use as a community vaccination centre.
THAT the Leader of the Council:
1) Approves the grant of a licence to the Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust of rooms at the Richard Herrod Centre for use as a community vaccination centre.
2) Delegates authority to the Director for Environment, Communities & Leisure to make all operational decisions relating to the licence agreement and approve any variations to the licence agreement, including in relation to fees and extension of the licence period.
To assist a key partner organisation in the national response to the Covid-19 pandemic and to ensure that the NHS can offer a key, accessible facility to support the citizens of Gedling to become protected from Covid-19.
The Council could decide not to grant the licence. However this would mean that it would be unlikely that a CVC would be established in the borough. Limited options are available for the NHS. A number of sites in Gedling have been assessed by NHS colleagues but they failed to identify any suitable alternatives - there are no comparable sites that provide the same space, access and community reach.
The operational decisions in respect of the licence could remain with the Executive, however this would be considered to be an unnecessary burden on the Executive as it would involve approving all changes to agreement, changes to fees and extensions.
