Engagement Opportunities

We are committed to working with our patients and the public as partners, and to putting patients and the public at the heart of all we do.

We want patients and local people to be directly involved in our work, helping us to shape local health services.

Here are the opportunities available to have your say:

 

Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are merging to become one CCG from 1 April, 2021.

By becoming one CCG we can improve the health and wellbeing of people living in Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes, by making better use of our resources, reducing duplication, spreading good practice and reducing health inequalities and unwarranted variation.

We are committed to co-designing our new organisation with you and have incorporated feedback from the public survey in the summer to develop our draft clinical commissioning strategy. The purpose of this strategy is to describe how our new organisation will work with partners and communities to commission local health services.

We have been working with our staff and partners to develop our approach and priorities, including the mission, vision and values of the new BLMK CCG – why we exist and how we behave.  We would like to share this with you and ask for your views and feedback to help us develop this further. You can give these by completing a short online survey and through a series of online round table events that we will hold in the coming weeks.

This survey closes on Sunday 21 February 2021.

Your views and feedback will be used to inform the next version of the strategy that we will share with you in March 2021.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss the draft strategy, please contact Tanita Pasha in the first instance – email [email protected]

A document providing further detail regarding our draft clinical commissioning strategy is available to view here and a working draft copy of the full strategy is available to view here.

To help understand how potential changes to Mount Vernon Cancer Services may affect patients, and to help plan those future services, Mount Vernon Cancer Centre are hoping to hear the views of people across the whole of the area served by the centre. Join the focus group closest to the area in which you live.

A series of online events detailing the latest developments in the Mount Vernon Cancer Services Review are taking place, including the recent discussions by the Programme board in the preferred options for the future of the centre.
