More chance to have your say on five year health plan

Posted on Thursday 15th May 2014

People living in North Cumbria have more opportunities to give their views to inform a far reaching five year plan for a healthier future.

The plan is being prepared by NHS Cumbria Clinical Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), working with other local NHS organisations, Cumbria County Council and Healthwatch Cumbria, under the branding Together for a healthier future.  

The aim is to make sure that the views of local people are taken into account to achieve the best possible long term plans.

This means having the right services in place to help people to stay well and independent through better support in communities and in their own homes, therefore reducing avoidable hospital admissions and dependency on hospitals. Also, when they need hospital services these will be safe and sustainable with the right levels of expertise to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Representatives from the NHS and Healthwatch will be present at roadshows as follows: 

Thursday, 15 May Moot Hall Area Market, Keswick 10am-2pm

Saturday, 17 May Market Place, Whitehaven 10am-2pm

Tuesday, 20 May Farmers Market, Clock Tower, Penrith 10am-2pm

Wednesday, 21 May    Local Links, Vicarage Lane, Kirby Stephen 11am-2pm

Friday 23 May Market, Town Square, Cleator Moor 10am-2pm

Monday, 26 May Wilkinson car park, Plant Market, Cockermouth 10am-2pm

Thursday, 29 May Water Street Car Park, Wigton 10am-2pm

Friday, 30 May Co-op car park, Maryport     10am-2pm

Monday, 2 June Alston Rural Partnership Shop, Alston 3.30pm-6pm

Alongside the roadshows, large community and voluntary sector events are being held, meetings are taking place with local councils and a series of independent focus groups are also taking place.
