Our Health, Our Care, Our FUTURE 

We would like to invite you to a discussion on the future for health and care services, and to help us prioritise changes and improvements that need to be made to ensure our populations continue to have the best possible care.

Now that the NHS Long Term Plan has been published, now is the right time for us to talk with our communities about what the areas are that we need to focus on to ensure services remain sustainable and right for patients.

These discussions will build on what we have already heard through our Big Health and Care Conversation across the area, and help us think about how we use the available money for health and care in the best possible way: We can do anything, but not everything”.

Our discussions will be focused on the FUTURE of health and care:

Facing up to our challenges
Understanding need
Transforming services
Unwarranted variation – ensuring this does not happen
Resources and how we use them most effectively
Equality of access and care for our diverse population

We have a number of opportunities to join our discussions in person listed on the Events page, and we will also be producing an online survey, in order to hear from as many people as we can.

This service is available to those over the age of 55 years old for age related hearing loss we are ideally looking for someone that is familiar with the service to join the procurement task and finish group.


The role will be key in representing the views and needs of patients through the procurement process which will include contribution to service redesign, to change the way in which this service is provided. The CCG will undertake a number of patient forums and our patient lay member will be responsible for ensuring that outputs of this work are included in commissioning and contracting decisions.

ReSPECT process Discussion Group

ReSPECT is a process that creates personalised recommendations for clinical care in emergency situations in which patients are not able to decide for themselves or communicate their wishes.

The CCG is looking to recruit members of the public to participate in a ‘Discussion Group’ event. i.e. a balanced group to meet and consider (and advise us about) how best the CCGs should communicate and engage with the wider public / interested parties about ReSPECT implementation.
