Results Revealed On State Of Local Health Services

NHS

8:59am 17th November 2014

People in Dorset are being given the chance to find out about the state of health services in the county in a series of events taking place next month.

They’re being organised by Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group as part of the major review of local NHS services to make sure health care is affordable in the long-term.

You can hear the evidence that the group has been gathering at Charlton Down in Dorchester on the 11th of December from 2:30pm-4:30pm.

Dr Forbes Watson, Chair of NHS Dorset CCG, the organisation leading the Review, said: "I hope local people will take the opportunity to come along in December and hear about the evidence we have collected about patients’ needs, clinical performance and finances that demonstrate why changes to current services are essential."

"People told us what they thought of services in the Big Ask and now we want to show them our evidence about how health care is being delivered in Dorset. We want people to tell us if the Case for Change is clear and understandable, and if there is additional information that we need to consider."

The review has been gathering evidence on NHS care in Dorset that includes everything from numbers of treatments and procedures provided for patients, predicted demand in the future, financial information and patients’ views and experiences.

This evidence has been compiled into Dorset CCG's ‘Case for Change’, setting out where they feel there are challenges with current provision, and why they believe local service provision needs to change in the future.

But, no changes will be made without a full public consultation, which will take place in the summer of 2015.
