Somerset CCG regularly conducts consultations and surveys to ensure we are commissioning the best healthcare services for the people of Somerset. Feedback is used to make improvements and gives the local population a say in how services are commissioned.
Current consultations and engagement
We are currently seeking your views on the following and would appreciate you taking the time to have your say and get involved:
Somerset Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP)
NHS organisations in different parts of the country have been asked to come together to develop 'place-based plans' for the future of health and care services in their area. These Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STP) are five-year plans covering all areas of NHS spending in England. A total of 44 areas have been identified as the geographical 'footprints' on which the plans will be based.
Somerset's plan describes why we need to change the way health services are structured and delivered in order to meet the future needs of the people of Somerset. There will shortly be a programme of engagement events which will be publicised locally.

Have your say on services at Weston General Hospital
Residents in Somerset and North Somerset are invited to have their say on emerging ideas to build a strong future for Weston General Hospital.
NHS North Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group, working with Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group, are launching an eight week period of engagement to help shape future services at Weston General Hospital.
Working with local doctors and nurses we have developed ideas based on Weston General Hospital’s strengths and looking at national best practice for a modern day NHS.
There are four main ideas that we would like to hear your views on - you can read about these ideas in the engagement booklet on the North Somerset CCG website, where you can also find out how to have your say.
This engagement takes place from 9 February 2017 to 6 April 2017.
