TELL US YOUR VIEWS ON HEALTH AND CARE

Fit for my future web banner

On Monday (15 October) the first of a number of county-wide events takes place to hear local people’s views on health and care in Somerset, and explore how it could change in future.

Somerset CCG, the NHS acute hospital trusts, Somerset Partnership (mental and community health services), and Somerset County Council have jointly launched a programme called ‘Fit for my future’ to hear people’s experiences of health and care and gain feedback on emerging proposals of how it may change in future.

The first two sessions take place next week; the first is at Berrow Village Hall, Burnham-on-Sea, on Monday afternoon, 3pm-6.30pm, closely followed by Great Bow Wharf, Langport on Wednesday 17 October, 10am to 2pm).

There are five health and care areas under review:

●     planned care (usually non-emergency treatment) and cancer,

●     long term health conditions (such as diabetes) and frailty

●     urgent and emergency care

●     mental health and learning disabilities, and

●     maternity and children’s services.

The events will explain why we need a new approach to health and care services to help support Somerset residents to live longer, healthier and more independent lives. And, when people do need health and care support, how it might be provided in a way that best meets their needs, and as close to home or community as possible.

The CCG and their partners want to hear the views, experiences and ideas of as many people as possible - they hope people will visit one of the drop-ins taking place across the county at:
