An attempt to force Lancashire County Council to reconsider more than £4m of savings in its public health budget has failed.
Eleven opposition councillors demanded that a recent cabinet decision to reduce support schemes, healthy weight programmes and rehabilitation courses should be “called in” for further assessment.
They wanted the changes delayed for 12 months until it could be demonstrated that an NHS-driven plan to redesign how some health management services are delivered would be enough to bridge the gap left by the public health programmes which are to be cut.
But the request was rejected at a meeting of the cross-party health scrutiny committee.
The committee split along party lines, with opposition members - eight Labour, one Lib Dem, one Green and one Independent - requesting the call-in and members of the ruling Conservative group voting against it.
