Health leaders from the NHS in West Lancashire are holding a series of informal events across West Lancashire and inviting local residents to share their experiences of local community health services.
The events, which work on a drop in basis, will be attended by senior representatives from NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust and Southport & Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, and will focus on ‘community health services’. This means anything outside of hospital, for example, GPs, district nurses and community matrons, mental health services, podiatry, dieticians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists etc.
Greg Mitten, board member of NHS West Lancashire CCG who oversees patient and public involvement, said:
“We hold these events to give everyone a chance to raise their views on community health services. We don’t just want to hear about what’s gone well, but would also welcome any feedback on what’s not and where we can improve. The events are open to all ages, but we are especially interested in hearing from individuals who are 65 years old and over, with one or more long-term conditions. Each event runs for two hours but you can drop in any time for as long as you like. We look forward to welcoming your views.”
