A public consultation is being held to give residents their say on how to improve non-emergency patient transport services in Cambridgeshire.

Public meetings will take place at a variety of locations across the county, including March Library (September 16, 10.30-11.30am), Wisbech Library (September 29, 1-2pm) and Chatteris Library (October 14, 11am-noon).

The public consultation has been launched by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG),

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.

A questionnaire can also be filled in, which must be completed by November 19.
