Your views wanted on health care

The health body responsible for the planning and commissioning of NHS services in Northumberland is seeking the views of local people to improve services across the county.

NHS Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is looking at how health services can be improved for 2014 and beyond, and how its budget of around £400m should be spent.

Dr Alistair Blair, chief clinical officer for Northumberland CCG, said: “Involving local people in how we improve health care and health services in Northumberland is really important to us.

“We want to know where the areas for improvement are so that we can deliver the best care possible for local people in the area.

“I’d encourage anyone who has experienced care within the NHS to come forward and give your views.

“Your thoughts and ideas will really help us with our plans for 2014 onwards so we know that we are delivering what the local people want.”

To make your views heard you can complete a short survey at or request a paper copy of the survey by calling (0191) 217 2765.
