Formby Parish Council Monthly Meeting

Consultations On The Future Of Local NHS

Residents of Formby are invited to ' get involved in the future of their health and well-being services'.

Southport and Formby Clinical Commissioning Group (SFCCG) and a similar group for south Sefton are leading the local changes to the NHS.
There are two events,  residents 'are welcome to register for either event but the one held in the area where they live will be most relevant to them:

  • South Sefton CCG – 18 th June, Aintree Racecourse, 10am-2pm
  • Southport and Formby CCG – 25 th June, Southport Theatre and Convention Centre, 10am-2pm

These so-called 'Big Chat' events will give people

'the opportunity to find out about the plans and priorities of SFCCG, SSCCG and Sefton Council to improve health and well-being. Residents will also be asked for their views about those plans during the interactive events'.

'Dr Janet Atherton, Director of Public Health for Sefton Council and NHS Sefton, said: “We have begun to determine the priorities we believe will make the most difference to the health and well-being of local people, based on all the evidence we have about people’s health and current health services. Now we want to hear what Sefton residents think about these priorities.'

'“Once they are finalized, these priorities will be used to help shape future health and well-being services for both Sefton Council and local Clinical Commissioning Groups. So, I would encourage people to come along to the Big Chat and get involved.”

Lunch will be provided. To register, please call:

Kelly Jones on 0151 244 3457 or email Kelly.jones@knowsley.nhs.uk'
