We want you to have your say and influence your local health services. When major changes are being considered, we need to know what local people think and your views are integral in helping us make decisions.
Consultations and surveys give you the opportunity to let us know how you feel about suggested changes and by taking part, you can help us to improve the NHS services we commission.
On this page, you can find details of current consultations and surveys relating to both local and national health services. Please do take the time to fill them out – every response is really valuable.
Working with you to improve mental health in West Sussex
We want people in West Sussex to get the best possible care in they are struggling with their mental health.
To make sure this happens, the three NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups in West Sussex and the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust are working together on plans to improve mental health services in the area.
Now, we want to hear from you. Visit the dedicated online area to find our more, join a local event, and have your say.
Dental services in Kent, Surrey and Sussex
NHS England would like to hear your views on dental services in your area. They are hoping to put in place some new contracts to provide dental services in parts of the South East so your feedback will be taken into account when doing this.
How satisfied are you with the NHS England website?
As part of continuing efforts to improve the website, NHS England would like to know whether the website meets your needs and expectations and how satisfied you are with your visit.
Commissioning Reform discussions for stakeholders
The NHS Long Term Plan outlined how the NHS will change in the future, including a fundamental shift in how CCGs will work and how future commissioning will be carried out. As part of this, you may be aware of proposals to merge CCGs in East and West Sussex (not including Brighton and Hove CCG), in order to ensure the planning and buying of health services can be done in a more effective and joined up way with Local Authorities in future. This also supports the move towards “Integrated Care Systems” and “Population Health Commissioning", with a greater focus on prevention and outcomes rather than episodes of sickness and illness.
We know that some people are unclear about these changes and that there are lots of questions about new ways of working. We want to ensure you are provided with clear information and the opportunity to ask questions and give us your views.
We have planned a number of discussion sessions across Sussex, where you will hear about these changes from our Clinical and Commissioning Leads, and have opportunity to ask questions and make suggestions for our aim of working more collaboratively with our partners.
The list below shows where we are holding these discussions, with the links to book your place (so we know how many will be attending).
If you cannot attend, please do let us know if you would like someone to come to your organisation or group to talk through the changes. Contact us at EHSCCG.YourSay@nhs.net.
