Somerset CCG regularly conducts consultations and surveys to ensure we are commissioning the best healthcare services for the people of Somerset. Feedback is used to make improvements and gives the local population a say in how services are commissioned.
Current surveys, consultations and engagement
We are currently seeking your views on the following and would appreciate you taking the time to have your say and get involved:
Fit for my Future
Fit for my Future is a strategy for how we will support the health and wellbeing of all the people of Somerset by changing the way we commission and deliver health and care services. It is being delivered through a partnership between Somerset County Council and Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group, supported by our major NHS providers.
Groups of clinicians and managers have been working together so that we have a better understanding of why we need to change, and the sorts of potential changes we should be working up in detail. They have identified that there are many things we need to do differently if we are going to have the biggest possible positive impact on the health and the quality of life of Somerset people.
We hope local people, voluntary organisations, charities, patients, service users and carers will tell us what they think of these ideas. Our initial engagement took place in Autumn 2018, and in 2019 we will be sharing detailed development of proposals and options, as well as further engagement and consultation in Autumn 2019.
