Have your say on NHS services in Fenland
Public meetings will be held in Wisbech and March today about the future of the local NHS 111 and Out of Hours GP services.
The deadline for public responses is 5pm on Friday, March 6.
The public consultation, which was launched by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group in December, invites local residents to give their views on how the services can be improved.
Dr Andrew Anderson, CCG clinical lead for Out of Hours Services, said: “This consultation is to gather feedback on how we can provide good quality NHS 111 and GP Out of Hours services to the people of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
“We want to hear your feedback, and ask you how access to the right health services can be improved so we can ensure residents get to the right place for help or advice, first time.”
Today the meetings will be held at Wisbech Town Hall between 10am– 1pm and then at March Town Hall between 1pm-2.30pm.
