Make Your Voice Heard on Local NHS Services

Blackpool residents are being encouraged to share their experiences of local NHS services at a series of events to be held across the town.

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

In particular, the CCG would like to hear from Blackpool residents living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the experience of the services available to them, such as pulmonary rehab classes.

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:

  • Friday 8 July 2016, 1pm – 3pm, Layton Library, Talbot Road FY3 7BD.
  • Wednesday 20 July 2016, 11am – 1pm, Central Library, Queen Street FY1 1PX.
  • Thursday 21 July 2016, 10am – 12 noon, Palatine Library, St Anne’s Road FY4 2AP.

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.
