News Opportunity to influence NHS South Glos 5 year strategy

Dear Stakeholder

 am writing to you to share NHS South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group’s vision for transforming the future of local healthcare services – and give you an opportunity to feed back and help influence decisions.

We’d like you to know more about our vision for the next five years, hear your views on our approaches to key challenges, and let us know what you believe should be the priority areas for development. 

Our draft Five Year Strategy focuses on the big issues: describing priority areas to change and develop local health services, our approach, and the benefits to patients.

Our proposals – which have been informed by the feedback we’ve already received about local healthcare, such as the recent Call to Action survey – have been developed under the clinical leadership provided by local GPs and using national evidence of best practice.

We want to ensure that patients experience safe and high quality care in the most appropriate location, set against rising demand for services and the financial challenges facing health and social care.  Despite these challenges, we do not want to reduce core services, so we must transform them.

We are prioritising some areas of healthcare – such as the urgent care system and supporting the frail elderly – which we know local patients, families, healthcare professionals and clinicians are passionate about. We are working towards a future where fewer local people need to travel to be seen in hospital, because they can get the care they need in a local setting, where they have been helped to live a healthier life and are less likely to suffer ill-health. Underpinning the delivery of services will be a joined-up approach by health and social care to provide the most effective services.

The draft version of our Five Year Strategy is available on our website at the following link: www.southgloucestershireccg.nhs.uk/get-involved/how-you-can-get-involved.  An easy read version is also available here.  Hard copies are available on request. We welcome feedback from you about our proposals to help shape the final version and will take comments on board.

You can get involved by completing a short survey about the draft Five Year Strategy at the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MHMD3R2. The easy read version is available here. We also ask you to share our online survey with your colleagues and key stakeholders who may wish to comment.  Hard copies of the survey are available on request. Alternatively, you can email general comments to us at sharon.howard@southgloucestershireccg.nhs.uk or write to Sharon Howard, Suite 11-14, Corum 2, Corum Office Park, Crown Way, Warmley BS30 8FJ. She can also be contacted by phone on 0117 947 4432.

Your feedback must be shared with us by Monday, 11 August please.

We will share a summary of the responses received on the CCG website and show how these have been considered in the final version of the Five Year Strategy. We will publish the Five Year Strategy on the CCG website once it has been approved by our Governing Body and the Health and Wellbeing Board later this year.

Thank you in advance for sharing your views with us
