Help shape community services

  • Status: Closed
  • Date opened: 17 October 2018
  • Date closed: 20 November 2018
  • Community health services are provided in local areas, outside hospital. They work alongside general practices to help people stay well and independent in the community.

    The NHS and partners want to keep community services strong. We are currently advertising for one community services provider to cover Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

    Between October and December 2018, hundreds of local people, patients, carers, healthcare professionals, local authorities and voluntary and community groups had their say and helped us to understand what is most important to them. People shared their views in workshops and through a survey. Healthwatch helped the CCG to engage people and support planning future services.
