We can champion this thought-through vision to become a practical solution:
We are a group of local people who passionately believe that there is a once in a lifetime opportunity to develop an excellent quality healthcare system locally. We believe it is realistic, and affordable to develop facilities that are up to standard, in locations that are accessible to all.
Clinical commissioning is, necessarily, led by Doctors and other Health Professionals. We are working to add a measure of grass-roots public input into local health infrastructure (buildings) commissioning, which partners sound, evidence-based clinical good practice with open engagement with the public, who, after all, are the customers here.
Together we can all ensure that future generations have the kind of healthcare they deserve.
We need your help to make that happen !
