Local NHS calls for views from local patients

Local NHS calls for views from local patients

The local commissioners for health services, NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), is looking to improve children’s continence service and is calling for views from local patients and carers.

If a child in your family or care is supported by a continence service, the NHS would like to hear from you.

Children who would be supported by a continence service typically have some form of bladder and/or bowel dysfunction.

Carol McCabrey, service redesign manager at NHS West Lancashire CCG, said:

“Our aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of these children and young people through supporting local service redesign that is high quality and cost effective. Before we do anything, we need to fully understand what it is like for patients and families that require a continence service. Everything we hear will help us make improvements locally.

“We are looking to hear from children, young people and their parents, families and/or carers with views and experiences to share. All conversations can be arranged on an individual basis and treated confidentiality and anonymously, as required”.

The CCG would like to hear from children and/or their families/carers in relation to a child or young person 19 years old or younger who currently use a continence service. Views are also welcome in relation to children with Special Educational Needs and Disability 25 years old or younger.
