THE deadline for patients to have their say about local health services has been extended.
A major review of the way the NHS delivers patient care in Ellesmere Port & Neston is under way, ahead of its 60th anniversary in July.
And the borough’s Primary Care Trust is asking residents to tell them what they think about local health services.
What’s good? What’s not so good? And how should the PCT develop them in future?
The current review of the NHS is based on a vision of services that are fairly distributed, personalised to meet people's needs, effective and safe.
The survey covers eight areas of care: maternity and newborn care, children’s health, planned care, mental health, staying healthy, long-term conditions, acute care and end-of-life care.
A postal survey is already well under way but the PCT is also inviting local people to complete the survey online at www.framework.web.com/surveys/050005
The deadline for responding to the survey has been extended to Wednesday, February 6, and all responses will be analysed by an independent organisation on behalf of the PCT.
