The group is open to all currently registered patients and we welcome your attendance.
Public Consultation - A Healthier Future - Lets Talk
(6th July 17 to 14th Sept 17)
Two important public consultation papers are being launched in this area.
The consultations are about proposals being put forward by NHS East and North Hertfordshire and NHS Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), the organisations that plan and fund health services in Hertfordshire.
The CCG are asking people for their views on a series of proposals designed to make best use of the money available to the local NHS, while helping as many people as possible to live healthier, longer lives and avoid preventable illnesses.
The consultations are being launched as Hertfordshire’s CCGs face a range of challenges. The number of people who need health service support is increasing and many people are living longer, often with complex conditions. National and local shortages of NHS staff mean that we have to make sure that doctors’, nurses’ and other specialists’ time is used wisely. The CCG need to encourage people to think carefully about their own wellbeing so that they live healthier lives, avoid preventable illnesses and have the very best chance of recovering well from surgery.
Further detail about the consultations and other local health service initiatives can be viewed by clicking on the link below:
As part of the consultation the CCG are holding a series of public meetings to seek the views of local people on these proposals.
