Leaders at NHS Fylde and Wyre Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) will also detail plans to deliver more health services in the community, rather than in hospital.

The events, taking place across the area over four days, will update local people about the CCG’s progress so far in keeping the promises made in its 2030 Vision for Health and Care in Fylde and Wyre, which was published three years ago after a major public engagement exercise.

Feedback will also be sought about how the CCG should measure the quality of community health services in the future.

The events, which are free to attend with tea and coffee provided, will take place on:

  • Wednesday 22 February 2017 at Thornton Methodist Church, Victoria Road East, Thornton Cleveleys, FY5 5HQ, from 2pm to 4pm;
  • Thursday 23 February 2017 at YMCA Lofthouse Building, London Street, Fleetwood, FY7 6JL, from 10am to noon;
  • Monday 27 February 2017 at NHS Fylde and Wyre CCG, Derby Road, Wesham, PR4 3AL, from 2pm to 4pm;
  • Tuesday 28 February 2017 at St Annes United Reformed Church, St George’s Road, St Annes, FY8 2AE.

CCG chief nursing officer Jennifer Aldridge, the executive lead for engagement, said: “We highly value the voice of our public when making decisions about how we deliver health services locally.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for people to get involved in shaping the future of the local NHS and I would urge as many people from Fylde and Wyre to come out and speak to us.”
