DOWN AT THE DOCTORS

OCTOBER 2017

 

This month I would like to bring to your attention a new NHS initiative (if that isn’t an oxymoron!)

 

Our Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), along with others up and down the country, is currently undertaking a consultation with the public (you lot!) about a series of proposals to change NHS services. They are keen to get views about these proposals from as many local people as possible, and are asking for opinions on a number of topics, including:

 

  • Whether the local NHS should continue to pay for gluten free products on prescription
  • Whether the local NHS should continue to fund IVF and other specialist fertility services
  • Whether the local NHS should fund medicines or products for short-term illnesses that are available to buy without a prescription
  • Whether the local NHS should continue to fund female sterilisation operationsTo have your say and view the proposals simply go to the following website; www.healthierfuture.org.uk/NHSLetsTalk

Finally, Christmas is on its way and THE FLU JABS ARE IN!!!
