Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge Clinical Commissioning Groups (BHR CCGs), are reminding people to have their say in a consultation on community urgent care services.
Community urgent care services provide same day care and advice for people with urgent, but not life threatening, physical and mental health issues. These include our GP out of hours service (GPOOH), our seven GP access hubs and four local walk-in services.
We are asking the public for their views on proposals to change, and improve the way community urgent care services are accessed locally in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge. We want to hear what local people think, and over the coming weeks we will be at the following locations:
As part of the consultation we are seeking local feedback on proposals to make more urgent appointments bookable in advance by calling NHS 111, and have two options for changes to where you can walk in and wait without an appointment:
Both options will help to make it easier for people to choose the right service when they have an urgent health need.
The CCGs have published a document that sets out the two options for proposed changes, and a questionnaire for people to have their say. The questionnaire is available on the CCG websites: Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge.
All responses must be received by 5pm on 21 August 2018.
