Have your say on health services in Workington

9 May 2017 3:26PM

People can have their say on maternity and paediatric services in the county at events in Workington next week.

Drop-ins will be held at the Carnegie Theatre in Workington on Tuesday from 1pm to 3pm and 5pm to 7pm.

NHS staff and representatives from Cumbria CVS and Healthwatch Cumbria will be there for people to give feedback on what would improve services, or thoughts can also be submitted in writing or in small groups.

Dr David Rogers, medical director for NHS North Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “We heard very clearly during the consultation that the community thought there were more things the NHS can do to tackle the recruitment problems that challenge the service, and there are lots of ideas they want to share to help shape future services.

"This meeting is the first of many steps to take us in that direction and to help us work together more collaboratively.”
