A public consultation on the future of NHS out-of-hours services has been extended – with an extra public meeting being organised in Fenland.
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has extended its public consultation on the NHS 111 and GP out of hours services for an additional two weeks.
It has been extended due to difficulties with the distribution of information over the Christmas period, and will now run until Friday, March 6.
An additional public meeting for Fenland has also been organised on Wednesday, February 11, at 1pm, at March Town Hall.
Launched on December 19 last year, the consultation is inviting local residents to give their views on a future model for NHS 111 and GP out of hours services in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
With current contracts for these services coming to an end, the CCG is thinking about the future of these services and how they can be improved – and wants to know what people think.
Dr Andrew Anderson, CCG clinical lead for out of hours services, said: “We want to hear your feedback, and ask how access to health services can be improved so we can ensure residents get to the right place for help or advice, first time.”
