Everyone with an interest in health, social care and wellbeing in Sefton is invited to one of three events in January, where they can hear about plans for the future and give their views.
‘Talking Health and Wellbeing’ follows a number of public events held over the summer by Sefton Council, South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (SSCCG) and Southport and Formby Clinical Commissioning Group (SFCCG), where people were asked what they thought the priorities of the three organisations should be.
People’s views gained at these events have helped to shape joint proposals about which health, social care and wellbeing issues Sefton Council and the two CCGs should concentrate on.
The Talking Health and Wellbeing events are a chance to share these proposals with Sefton residents, gain their views and set out what the next steps will be.
Cllr Ian Moncur, Chair of Sefton’s Health and Wellbeing Board, said: “By setting joint priorities and doing more together, the Council and Clinical Commissioning Groups have a real opportunity to make a difference to the health and wellbeing of local people.
“We cannot do this without the views of Sefton residents and our Talking Health and Wellbeing events are one way they can get involved and tell us what they think about our plans for the future.”
Around 200 people attended the first two Talking Health and Wellbeing events in December and there are three more planned for January. People are welcome to register at any of the events but the one nearest to where they live will be most relevant to them:
8th January – 1.30pm (2pm start) Formby Gild Hall, Church Road, Formby
14th January – 1.30pm (2pm start) Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre, Cambridge Road, Waterloo
14th January – 5.30pm (6pm start) Maghull Town Hall, Hall Lane, Maghull
Dr Niall Leonard, Chair of SFCCG, said: “People told us about some of the things they’d like to see in the future at events like the ‘Big Chat’. This is a chance for them to see how we are planning to respond to the things that matter the most to them, like offering more care closer to home where we can.”
“We are at an important stage in developing our plans to improve health and wellbeing locally, and these events are an excellent way for us to find out what Sefton residents think and help to further shape our proposals.”
