Have your say on health services


People will be able to tell health chiefs what they’re doing right and wrong at a public meeting next month.

Aylesbury Vale Clinical Commissioning Group are holding a public meeting on Thursday, February 13 to gather views from the public on how services are provided.

The group, which is responsible for buying health services in the Vale, will host the session from 5.30pm at The Gateway in Aylesbury.

All the topics discussed will become part of ‘A Call to Action’, a national campaign which is looking at ways of tackling the challenges facing the NHS.

Dr Graham Jackson, clinical chair of Aylesbury Vale CCG, said: “At the meeting, the public will have the opportunity to share their views with us about how we could deliver better and more cost-effective health services.

“As commissioners of local health services we are facing mounting challenges such as more demand for health services which is already stretching our limited resources.”

He added: “We need a fresh approach to buying services that maintains the quality of patient care but is affordable and cost-effective.

“This might mean delivering care closer to people’s homes or enabling GP practices to provide more services to treat people without the need for them to travel to hospital.”
