A series of interactive NHS Future Fit workshops will allow people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid-Wales to help shape how the hospital care they access is delivered for the next 20 years.
Local people can make their voice heard during eight workshops at a range of locations and times throughout August and September. Details of venues, times and dates can be found at www.nhsfuturefit.co.uk/events People can also book a place onto a workshop by calling 0121 612 2805.
The August workshops will include:
- an opportunity to have a say on where healthcare services should be located
- information about the NHS Future Fit programme
- discussion on how NHS services need to work for the future
Those attending the September workshops will be able to offer their opinions on the list of locations suggested in August. This will inform the short-list of locations where healthcare services could be situated in the future.
Dr Caron Morton and David Evans, Joint Senior Responsible Officers for NHS Future Fit, said: “Participating in a workshop and sharing your views is really important. These events are one of many ways that local people can make their voice heard. We need to work together to ensure we continue to provide quality hospital services for future generations.
“We know people have strong opinions on healthcare, and we are keen to get local people involved and include them in decisions which affect them. Being part of these workshops and other NHS Future Fit activities, is the only way we can ensure doctors, nurses, patients and other health professionals, can truly shape the future of main and community hospital services together in the right way.”
If you are unable to attend a workshop you can still be part of the event using social media. Take part in the conversation on Twitter and join in from wherever you are by following @NHSFutureFit using the hashtag #myfuturefit.
The workshops will last four hours and lunch will be provided for participants.
