Chance for public to have their say on NHS financial challenges

9th September 2016
Mansfield, Ashfield, Bolsover, Sherwood

Chance for pubilc to have their say on NHS financial challenges 

Health commissioners in Nottinghamshire are urging the public to take part in special events about the financial challenges facing local NHS services. 

NHS Mansfield and Ashfield and Newark and Sherwood CCGs announced in August that they needed to save around £20 million by April 2017 – roughly twice their normal savings requirement. 

“The NHS has been very successful in treating more conditions and in helping people to live longer”, commented Dr Amanda Sullivan, chief officer for NHS Newark and Sherwood and Mansfield and Ashfield CCGs; “Demand for services is growing faster than the available resources. Local services are therefore not affordable if we continue to keep everything the same. 

"In response to this challenge we are offering the public the opportunity to have their say about where they believe savings could best be made."

The events are taking place in September across the region to allow people to hear more about the reasons for the financial challenges and how using services differently can make a difference to costs. It will also be a chance for people to offer their insights about where health care services could be changed to make savings and improve patient care. 

Those who cannot attend one of the events are asked to feedback their views by emailing  NSHCCG.BetterTogether@nhs.net , or by calling 01623 673591
