Wisbech and Ely residents are invited to help shape local health services at a ‘Fit for the Future NHS’ workshop.

The events at Wisbech Library, 6.30pm to 8pm on Thursday and Ely College on Monday March 21 is the third of a series of five ‘Fit for the Future NHS’ workshops that are being held throughout March across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

The workshops are a continuation of the Public Involvement Assembly sessions that were held last year, and are open to everyone and people who have not previously attended are very welcome.

Discussions will be about the newly formed Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Sustainability and Transformation Programme which is continuing the work of the 2014/15 System Transformation Programme.

This new programme, which involves all local health and social care organisations, is looking at how the significant challenges that face both the local health economy and the national NHS system as a whole can be addressed. It is also looking to help build a health and care system that is fit for the future.

Fiona Head, Clinical Strategy Director, at NHS Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG, said: “These workshops will provide the public with an update on our work. They will give people the opportunity to feedback and share their views on how we can deliver improved and sustainable healthcare across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

“We hope that people who came to the previous Public Involvement Assembly sessions can join us, along with new members of the public wanting to make a difference. We encourage all residents to come along and bring any interested members of their family, and friends, too.”
