Evening session amongst health services feedback opportunities

More people can share their views on local NHS services during October with day and evening drop-in sessions planned to take place across the town.

NHS Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the organisation that ‘buys’ and plans health services across the town is once again running its drop-in sessions around the town to give people the chance to share their experiences, good or bad, about the services they receive.

The sessions are usually held during working hours but following feedback from some members of the public an additional evening session has now been planned to allow more people an opportunity to share their views. This dedicated evening session will be held at Sainsbury’s Supermarket on Talbot Road.

The sessions are an ideal opportunity to provide feedback on a recent experience of an NHS service or give views on the CCG’s plans and priorities.

The sessions operate on a drop-in basis and so there is no need to make an appointment. Simply visit one of the below locations at the specified time:

  • Tuesday 10 October, 10am – 12pm, Central Library, Queen Street FY1 1PX
  • Thursday 12 October, 11am – 1pm, Anchorsholme Library, Luton Road FY5 3RS
  • Monday 16 October, 6pm-7pm, Sainsbury’s Supermarket, Talbot Road FY1 3AJ

Dr Amanda Doyle, a Blackpool GP and Chief Clinical Officer at NHS Blackpool CCG said: “Good or bad, we really value the views of Blackpool residents and want to make sure that everybody has an opportunity to share theirs with us. The Your Voice sessions are an ideal opportunity to talk face-to-face with a member of our engagement team.

“All of the views and experiences gathered will help us to make sure that Blackpool residents receive services of the highest standard, now and in the future.”

If you are unable to attend one of these planned sessions but would like to share your views on local services you can do so via the CCG’s website at: www.blackpoolccg.nhs.uk/yourvoice.
