Join in major health debate
Health leaders from four NHS commissioning organisations in Nottinghamshire are to come together to appeal to the public for help to reshape the way health and social care services are delivered.
As part of the ongoing “A Call to Action engagement”, Health officials from NHS Rushcliffe, Nottingham North and East, Nottingham West and Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Groups will meet with patients, carers and members of the public at the City Ground on Wednesday 29 January to discuss how services can work better together, what support people need to remain independent in their homes, what good quality care means to patients and carers; and how the NHS can do more for less to remain sustainable for the future.
Dr Paul Oliver, Nottingham GP and clinical lead for NHS Nottingham North and East Clinical Commissioning Group said: “We’ve been talking for some time about the need to change the way we deliver health and social care services so we can continue to provide quality and sustainable services. The reality is that, as the numbers of people living with long-term conditions increases year on year, so do the demands on our services; and current budgets to deliver those services are simply not going to meet those needs for future generations based on the way we use health and social care services today. We need to change the way we view health services so we can get more services closer to home, free up hospitals for those who need them and to improve our lifestyles so our impact and reliance on the NHS is reduced as we get older. We want the public to be part of the debate.”
The event is being held 1-4pm at the Robin Hood Suite at the City Ground, Nottingham Forest football ground, Pavillion Road, Nottingham NG2 5FJ. People who want to attend are asked to register by email to firstname.lastname@example.org Light refreshments are also available.
This event is part of a series of A Call to Action events hosted by NHS Nottingham North and East, NHS Nottingham West, NHS Nottingham City and NHS Rushcliffe Clinical Commissioning Groups – who together plan and buy £900 million of health services for a population of 650,000 people.
