September drop in sessions planned

Residents of Blackpool will have the chance to share their views on health services in the town again this September.

Whether it be delays for treatment, types of care available or just to pay a compliment about the way you were treated in A&E NHS Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the organisation that ‘buys’ and plans health services across the town, wants to hear from you.

To give you the chance to have your say on local health services the CCG is once again holding its regular, twice monthly drop in sessions for residents.

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 12 September, 10am – 12pm, Central Library, Queen Street FY1 1PX.
  • Thursday 14 September, 11am-1pm, Moor Park Library, Bristol Avenue FY2 0JG

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.
