Have your say

Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, Oundle and Royston residents are invited to have their say on the future of their local Non-Emergency Patient Transport Services.

A public consultation has been launched by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), inviting local residents to share their ideas and views on how non-emergency patient transport services can be improved.

Public meetings to discuss the proposed changes will take place as follows:

• March Library, Wednesday 16 September, 10.30-11.30am

• Huntingdon Library, Monday 21 September, 2-3pm

• Peterborough Central Library, Thursday 24 September, 3.30-4.30pm

• Wisbech Library, Tuesday 29 September, 1-2pm

• Ely Library, Wednesday 30 September, 1.30-2.30pm

• Old Bull Inn at Royston, Tuesday 6 October, 11am-12pm

• Central Library Cambridge, Wednesday 7 October, 2-3pm

• Priory Centre St Neots, Monday 12 October, 10-11am

• Chatteris Library, Wednesday 14 October, 11am-12pm

Dr Neil Modha, chief clinical officer, said: “This consultation is important in helping us develop our services and to deliver a good quality Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service.

“We want to hear your opinions and your answers to our questions concerning a service that is crucial for those who may be otherwise isolated, or in need of patient transport for health reasons.

“We want this service to support all its users fairly and as seamlessly as possible.”

The consultation document can be read online with a questionnaire also available for completion.

Alternatively a hard copy may be requested by phoning 01223 725304.

The deadline for public responses is 5pm on Thursday 19 November 2015.

Hard copies are also being sent to GP surgeries, pharmacies, and libraries.

Feedback given during the public consultation will be included in a follow-up report which will be considered by the CCG Governing Body, contributing to any further development of these services.
