People can give their views on the future of health services in Corby.
A series of workshops is being held in the town over the coming weeks.
These workshops are part of a programme of activity by NHS Corby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to help the public understand how the local NHS might need to change.
Attendees will be asked for their input on three things:
· Prioritising key factors the CCG should consider when making decisions about services. Improving quality, ensuring sustainability and ensuring appropriate spend of the public pound are among the key values the CCG considers when making decisions about services. What other areas of value should the CCG consider?
· Considering the case for changing services in the face of growing challenges. Do people recognise that change is needed?
· Contributing to the vision for the work of GPs and colleagues. What should primary care services look like in the future?
The Northamptonshire Sustainability and Transformation Plan will be explained, along with how it has been developed by the local NHS, county council and other partners to set the direction of travel for care services in the coming years.
Clinical vice-chairman at NHS Corby CCG Dr Miten Ruparelia said: “Corby CCG has always been and continues to be committed to listening to the public and their views on health in the borough.
“These workshops show a real determination to involve the wider population of Corby in informing key decisions about our local NHS.”
The workshops will take place in Corby Council’s Council Chamber on the following dates:
Thursday, February 23, from 2pm to 5pm
Thursday, March 2, from 9.30am to 12.30pm
Monday, March 6, from 6pm to 9pm
