Shaping Care Together is led by NHS Southport and Formby CCG, NHS West Lancashire CCG and Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust and is the first stage of a process to understand public experience and views before any proposals to solve the challenges faced are considered.
Like NHS services across the country, our local hospitals face significant challenges. Some have been with us for years while the urgency of others has been made clear during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Shaping Care Together aims to redefine how we provide hospital services, help people use them only when they need them, and ensure those services are safe, sustainable and high quality.
Shaping Care Together will explore how we can build on what we have in place now, understand what works well and how things can be made better. To listen to people’s views and experiences, we are holding online events across the area of Southport, Formby and West Lancashire.
If you live in the Skelmersdale area and wish to comment on health and care services in the area, join the Shaping Care Together online discussion on:
Thursday 4th February 2-3.30pm
Thursday Feb 11, 2021 6-8pm
If you live in the Ormskirk area and wish to comment on health and care services in the area, join the Shaping Care Together online discussion on:
Wednesday 11 February from 6.30 – 8pm
Thursday 18th February 2pm – 3.30pm
If you live in the Southport and Formby and surrounding areas and wish to comment on health and care services in the area, join the Shaping Care Together online discussion on:
Wednesday 17th February 2pm – 3.30pm
Wednesday 17th February 6.30 – 8pm
This programme will last throughout 2021 and there will be many opportunities for local people to have their say. It is important to stress that no decisions have been made and we are seeking views which will inform our thinking and proposals for change.
Views can be shared on the dedicated website: www.yoursayshapingcaretogether.co.uk and over the coming months there will be lots of different ways for people to get involved. Details of further events will be announced soon.
People who do not feel comfortable using the internet can call 01695 588025 to receive paper copies of a questionnaire.
