There’s still time to share your views about Community Care Services in Craven - Thursday 22 Feb
People living in Craven and surrounding areas are being reminded to share their views about community care services, including the future of Castleberg Hospital, as the NHS consultation comes to a close.
People have still got chance to give their views on the two consultation options no later than Tuesday 27 February.
The three-month consultation includes community services for adults who need rehabilitation or additional support to prevent them becoming acutely unwell, or care when they are nearing the end of their lives.
A final public drop-in session will be held on Thursday 22 February, from 6pm to 8pm at Gargrave Village Hall, West Street, Gargrave, BD23 3RD, giving chance for people to share their views face-to-face.
Dr James Thomas, GP clinical lead at NHS Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven CCG said: “We have received excellent feedback online, through the post and at the meetings held to discuss the options. We want to hear as many people’s views as possible so we hope people can attend the final public drop-in session in Gargrave.
“It’s important to know what matters to local people so we can design services and make decisions that personalise care and support patients and their families in the long-term.
“As a local GP, I understand how important community care is to people in Craven - especially being a rural community. If you can’t come along to one the final drop-in session, I would urge you to take the time to either fill out the online survey, email or write to us so that your views are taken into account.”
