Health chief calls community to get involved and achieve health and wellbeing for everyone

Following meaningful discussions with the local community, NHS Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is calling for the public and local organisations to get involved and have their say on plans for future services in the Vale of York.

Events in Selby, York and Easingwold formed the first phase of conversations with partners, healthcare providers, patients and the public, helping them to get involved in the commissioning of local healthcare services.

Now that the feedback from these conversations has been analysed, the CCG is working closely with partnership and stakeholder organisations to begin plans that will set the direction for commissioning healthcare.

To make sure that everyone in the Vale of York has the opportunity have their say, the CCG is asking as many people as possible to get involved online and give their views via the CCG’s website.

Rachel Potts, NHS Vale of York CCG’s Chief Operating Officer said: “The CCG is focused upon providing high quality, sustainable health and care systems that provide integrated models of care and ensure that everyone has access to urgent and emergency care of the highest quality.

“Providing specialised services and ensuring that scheduled operations and procedures are planned more efficiently and effectively feature strongly too.

“The CCG would also like to help the community become inspired to take the lead in their own healthcare by providing the best balance of information and support to help them with this step-change.

“But it is the views of the pubic that will help to steer our plans. I understand that not everyone is able to get involved face to face at our events, which is why the CCG has provided this important information online, giving everyone the opportunity to give their views.”

The survey is available at: www.surveymonkey.com/s/YourFeedbackOurPlans. The closing date is 27 April 2014.
