The local NHS, working closely with Liverpool City Council, wants people to comment on the latest phase of Healthy Liverpool – a major plan to improve the health of people in the city, making sure that the health and social care system is focused on the needs of patients. It will support more of us to stay well for longer, ensuring the best care and treatment is available when needed.
Dr Nadim Fazlani, is a local GP and Chair of NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which is the organisation leading Healthy Liverpool. He said:
“Healthy Liverpool is about helping all of us to feel the benefit of living healthier lives, and making sure that services provided in the city are of the highest standard and meet the needs of patients.
“Last summer thousands of people told us about the issues which are important to them – such as being able to get a GP appointment when they need one, both during the day and out-of-hours – and having access to good mental health services – and we are making sure we address these concerns in our plans.
“But we need this feedback from those who use and rely on the local NHS and social care to continue. This dialogue is crucial for helping us develop a system which really meet the needs of our patients and protects services for the future.”
