People from Ashford and surrounding areas are being invited to have their say on local healthcare plans at an event hosted by NHS Ashford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
The event, which will take place from 1.30 – 4.45pm on Thursday 19 September, will be held at the Julie Rose Stadium, Ashford (TN24 9QX) and is open to local residents and organisations.
Feedback gathered from the event will be used by NHS Ashford CCG to shape and prioritise healthcare projects over the coming years. It follows a public event held in July which asked for people’s initial feedback on current services.
Topics such as mental health, dementia, urgent and emergency care, long-term conditions, planned care, and children and young people will be discussed.
Dr Navin Kumta, Chair of NHS Ashford CCG, said: “We really value people’s attendance at these events as it is critical that we get a range of views on how we should prioritise projects over the coming years. It doesn’t matter how much or how little you know about the NHS – we want as many people from the local area to come along and share their ideas and perspective on health services that matter to them.
“If people are unable to make the event, we would still welcome them to get in touch and share their comments or experiences.”
Places at the event are limited and need to be booked in advance. For further information or to reserve a place, please contact NHS Ashford CCG by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 03000 424 815.
