Saturday Café event in Wisbech is first of a number of events where people can air their views

Following the article headlined online: The biggest day to give people a chance to air problems with the NHS has been booked - for the same day as the Rose Fair in Wisbech.

I would like explain the purpose of the event Fit For the Future – Shaping Local NHS Services Saturday Café we are holding tomorrow in Wisbech Library.

The café is part of series of events being held across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to raise awareness and gather people’s feedback on the challenges our local health system faces. Local health organisations and partners are working together with residents to look at the way health services are organised and to begin to develop ideas to address the challenges we are all facing.

The meeting on Saturday is the first of a number of meetings we intend to hold in Wisbech over the next six to nine months. It is not a formal public consultation meeting, but an opportunity for people to come and talk informally about their views.

We are keen to hear people’s view, are inviting community groups to invite us to attend their meetings, and residents have the opportunity to join a public forum (Public Involvement Assembly).

More information is available at or by calling 01223 725304.

We hope that this busy day for Wisbech will mean that there are more people in town for the fair and that people might want to drop in any time to see us and share their views at Wisbech Library, from 10-noon.
