We really hope that you find this new service of benefit to you, we would love to hear your feedback when you have used it.
Local NHS launches “Your Big Health Conversation”
Local NHS leaders are calling on local people to take part in “Your Big Health Conversation”, to discuss the future of the local NHS.
The intention is to seek people’s views on a series of broad questions about how the NHS could and should change in future – for example, what a ‘seven-day NHS’ should mean locally, how the NHS could cope more effective with pressures on GP services, or what people feel about the potential trade-off between creating centres of excellence and keeping services local.
The survey can be accessed here.
If you would like to find out more about the situation facing the local NHS, there is more information – and also the link to submit your views – on the Portsmouth CCG, Fareham and Gosport CCG, and the South Eastern Hampshire CCG websites.
