The NHS in Dorset is asking local people to give their views on health care in the county.

Here is the content of a message from Frances Aviss of Dorset CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) :

I was wondering if you could circulate some information for me to members of Poole Heart Support Group?

In response to the need to co-design integrated community services with local people we are hosting a series of 9 public engagement events (supported by a virtual/online engagement opportunity) in late March and early April 2016. The Poole event is on the evening of Thursday 7 April at Parkstone Grammar School.

The initial focus at each event will be on the importance of us learning from people’s lived-experience, exploring their views of health and care services in their particular area of Dorset.

We will then briefly introduce the need to change how health and care services are provided and what is being done about this.

The main focus of the evening will be to seek views on emerging ideas/proposals (based on national and local need) around integrated community services and community vanguard proposals.

We plan to do this through an interactive ‘walk-through’ – where information on emerging ideas is displayed on clear accessible posters on a series of display boards.

Staff will be on hand to answer questions and people will be invited to capture their views on the posters – reflecting on what they feel is good/positive about the ideas/proposals and what they feel should be given consideration/any concerns they might have.

Further information on the events along with promotional materials and details of how to register are available on our website www.dorsetccg.nhs.uk/events and I have attached the Poole flyer (see poster on this page)

With very best wishes and many thanks
Frances Aviss
