Have your say on the future of our NHS
People in Nottinghamshire are being given the chance to comment on proposals to modernise the National Health Service (NHS), both on-line and at two listening events on 17 and 18 May.
On 6 April, Prime Minister David Cameron, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, and Health Secretary Andrew Lansley launched the Government's listening exercise on NHS modernisation.
The Government is taking the opportunity of a natural break in the passage of the Health Bill to pause, listen, reflect and improve. Over an 8-week period, there will be a series of events, to hear from a range of people working right at the frontline, and patients and the public.
NHS Nottinghamshire County and NHS Nottingham City are holding two Listening Exercise events, to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to consider the NHS changes, and to feed back their thoughts and comments on the proposals. A brief overview of the exercise, and some frequently asked questions are attached for further information.
You are invited to come along to one of our events which are being held on:
- Tuesday, 17 May, 6pm-8pm at South Forest Conference Centre, Edwinstowe, Mansfield, NG21 9JF
- Wednesday, 18 May, 6pm-8pm at the Belgrave Rooms, Goldsmith Street, Nottingham, NG1 5LB
If you would like to attend, or need any further information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01623 673 333.
