Public invited to join live events to give their views about health and care services

Tuesday, January 26, 2021

Shaping Care Together is led by NHS Southport and Formby CCG, NHS West Lancashire CCG and Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust and is the first stage of a process to understand public experience and views before any proposals to solve the challenges faced are considered.

Like NHS services across the country, our local hospitals face significant challenges. Some have been with us for years while the urgency of others has been made clear during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Shaping Care Together aims to redefine how we provide hospital services, help people use them only when they need them, and ensure those services are safe, sustainable and high quality.

Shaping Care Together will explore how we can build on what we have in place now, understand what works well and how things can be made better. To listen to people’s views and experiences, we are holding online events across the areas of Southport, Formby and West Lancashire.
