Your Voice sessions help improve health services

Blackpool residents will have more chances this month to provide their thoughts on what works and what doesn’t when it comes to local health services..

NHS Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the organisation that ‘buys’ and plans health services across the town is inviting residents to attend one of its ‘Your Voice’ sessions to share any compliments, comments or complaints that they may have about local NHS services.

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:

  • Thursday 16 March 2017, 11am – 1pm, Central Library, Queen Street, FY1 1PX.
  • Tuesday 21 March 2017, 10am – 12noon, Blackpool City Learning Centre, Bathurst Avenue, FY3 7RW.

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.
