Healthwatch Response to Urgent Care Changes
The East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (ERYCCG) has now introduced changes to Urgent Treatment Services. We at Healthwatch understand that there have been mixed feelings from the public about the changes but also understand the position from the ERYCCG.
Health and social care services are changing to become more efficient and better at providing the support that people want.
If services are to get these changes right, it is important that they work with local people to give them a say in decisions that will affect them.
Healthwatch will continue to work with commissioners and providers to keep an eye of the changes and to make sure they are working for the public.
Delivery Manager at HWERY, Matthew Fawcett, said
“The NHS is looking for better ways to make sure that people with urgent medical problems get the care they need, when they need it. We at Healthwatch will continue working together with the CCG to ensure people have a say and are getting the best treatment.”
