Have your say about providing care closer to home in Somerset
Health and care services in Somerset are running an engagement programme to gather feedback from local people about providing care closer to home.
Health and care services in Somerset aim to support people to live independent, healthier lives by having the right services in the right place for their needs, available at the right time and delivered by the right people. The engagement programme runs until 12 April 2020.
Everyone who lives and works in Somerset is invited to join in, think about and help shape a new way of providing services which is, where practical, closer to where they live, supports independence and maintains health. Everyone’s input, ideas and suggestions are vital to helping them make sure that we have the right services in the right place.
This engagement document shares with everyone the reasons why current services need to change and the challenges faced in continuing to run them. Community health and care services – Summary
Using all the feedback received, a number of ways that health and care services could be delivered differently will be developed. There will be public consultation about these potential options in the future.
Health and care services would like to know what you think about their ideas so far and get your feedback.
