NRAS would like to encourage those living in the Southampton City area to get involved in patient consulting groups being run by NHS Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). NHS Southampton City CCG is developing ear, nose and throat (ENT) and musculoskeletal (MSK) services this year and local patients are being invited to join groups to discuss these services. The aim of the meetings is to find our patient views on how the services are run currently and what they should look like in the future to best meet patients’ needs. Topics will include questions on accessible location, opening hours and waiting times. MSK covers areas such as rheumatology, physiotherapy and orthopaedics.
The groups will be set up in February and those attending will be asked to attend one meeting every three months for the next 12 months Travel expenses will be reimbursed. You can check if your GP surgery comes under Southampton City CCG by checking the map here: southamptoncityccg.nhs.uk/g...
Anyone interested in joining one of the groups, or who cannot attend a group but wants to submit comments, should email Robert.Hansford@southamptoncityccg.nhs.uk
