Help shape our future health plans say local doctors

North Kirklees doctors are inviting people to help them shape their future health plans.

NHS North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is keen to identify which areas to focus on in the coming year and wants to hear the views of local residents, patients, partner organisations and carers to help influence its decisions.

Dr David Kelly, GP, Chair of the CCG said: “North Kirklees CCG plans, buys and monitors local health services on behalf of its population.   As part of our planning process we need to identify the service areas we will be focusing on for next year.

“Like most Clinical Commissioning Groups, North Kirklees must ensure it meets increasing demand for healthcare against a budget that will remain largely unchanged. In order to do this, we will have to focus our efforts on areas of greatest need and priority.  We must also consider how we can deliver health services in different, more innovative ways.

“To inform our decision-making, we are keen to hear the views of local residents, patients, carers and stakeholder/partner organisations.”

To give people the opportunity to share their views, the CCG is holding an event on Wednesday, 28 January 2015, at Batley Town Hall, Market Place, Batley, WF17 5DA, from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

If you are unable to attend the event, you can still have your say by completing this short survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CommIntent. The views collated from the surveys will be used to develop the discussions at the event, being held on the 28th January 2015
