Something I came across. Readers from the UK are better placed to assess it's relevance and significance.

Greater Manchester Safeguarding Children Partnership has developed a leaflet to provide advice for parents to choose the right service for their son’s circumcision. From February 2012 a list of services that have been assessed as providing good practice will be available for parents and will be updated every year.

The Greater Manchester Safeguarding Partnership has produced a leaflet to help parents choose a circumcision service they feel confident in.

...

Circumcision of infant males is common practice in many religious and cultural groups, including Judaism and Islam. Due to Greater Manchester’s diverse and growing population, growing numbers of baby boys require circumcision each year.

The Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs) were established under the Children Act 2004 with ultimate responsibility to The Children's Commissioner for England.
 

A reader from the UK who wants to follow-up on this matter could start by subscribing to the Commissioner's mailing list:

Readers from the United Kingdom might also be able to take advantage of this upcoming event to start addressing this issue:

On closer inspection of the Human Rights Committee webpage, it appears that the opportunity to do anything substantive on this occasion has passed:

13 March 2012

The Joint Committee on Human Rights today announces a short inquiry into the role and independence of the Office of the Children’s Commissioner for England.
...
Those submitting evidence are of course free to raise other issues related to the inquiry which they think have an important human rights component.

The Committee intends to take oral evidence in the second half of April. The deadline for submissions to the Committee is Wednesday 11 April.

Sad that they feel the need to burn up the tax payers money on services that have nothing to do with improving health.
