Dudley CCG has launched a public consultation to get views on proposed changes to the way healthcare is delivered across the Dudley Borough.
The vision for Dudley is to put patients at the heart of integrated, GP-led health and social care services so that all those involved in a person’s care, including mental health workers, can work together in community teams.
In the consultation proposals they would like to bring all the relevant community services fully together as a single organisation – the creation of a Multi-speciality Community Provider (MCP).
The MCP will bring together GP practices, nurses, community health and mental health services, community-based services such as physiotherapy, relevant hospital specialists and others to provide care in the community that is joined up and puts patients at the centre
The consultation asks your views to help ensure that the new Dudley MCP is organised in the best possible way to meet your needs. In particular, the CCG would like your views on four key areas so that they can take into account your thoughts and ideas.
These areas are:
- Details of services included in the MCP contract (scope)
- The targets we expect them to achieve for Dudley people (outcomes)
- A description of the way that we expect the MCP to operate (characteristics)
- An expectation on how they will use technology to improve access (for example easier telephone/online access system)
You can share your views anytime up until midnight on Friday 9 September, please take a look at the consultation document and share your thoughts. You can do this in a number of ways including completing an online survey, joining in with one of 5 public meetings or contacting the CCG directly.
