Summary

Discussion of improvements to local Health and Social Care services, particularly focusing on GPs, engaging with young people, Domiciliary Care.

Key Notes

  • Healthwatch are receiving a lot less calls about people trying to make appointments at their surgeries. The joint Primary Care Committee at the CCG is working hard to get all GP surgeries to offer the same appointments, out of hours appointments etc.
  • Consultant and Engagement Manager at SBC advised that surgeries have to respond to the needs of their patients with regards to available appointments.
