Have your say

A series of drop-in events is being held by NHS West Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group so people can have a say on how health services in West Norfolk should be shaped for the future.

Since October 2014, the Contingency Planning Team has been working with patients, clinicians, GPs and staff across West Norfolk to find a solution to challenges faced by Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The CCG is urging local people to attend the events being held in January where they will be able to find out more about this work and provide feedback.

Dr Sue Crossman, chief officer of WNCCG, said: “This is an important piece of work which is likely to see health services develop in West Norfolk so it is really important that people are fully informed and engaged.”

The public drop-in events will be held at Hunstanton Town Hall on January 12, from 2-4pm, then at Queen Mary Centre in Wisbech on January 14, from 11-1.30pm.

On January 15, those in Swaffham will be able to have their say at Swaffham Assembly Rooms from 6-8pm, before the session at Lynn Town Hall the following day from 12-2.30pm.

On January 21 they will be at Fakenham Community Centre from 2-4.30pm, followed by Downham Town Hall on January 23, from 11.30-2pm.
