Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (BCCG) has joined forces with Sight Concern Bedfordshire (SCB) to involve people with visual impairment in the Bedfordshire/Milton Keynes review of healthcare across the county.
Together they have produced an audio version of the Healthcare Review ‘Case for Change’ summary. This explains why local healthcare needs to change and the challenges and opportunities we face, now and in the future. The summary also invites Bedfordshire residents and patients to air their views on healthcare as part of the countywide healthcare review.
You can listen to the 19-minute audio version or download an mp3 through BCCG’s dedicated healthcare review website, www.yourhealthinbedfordshire.co.uk/a_case_for_change. A CD version has also been mailed out to SCB’s 500 audio subscribers.
BCCG’s chief clinical officer Paul Hassan said: “The Healthcare Review is set to make a real difference to the way health services are delivered in Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire, so it’s crucial that we reach as many people as possible. The audio recording will give residents with sight impairments all the information they need to join in the debate and help us decide the future of local healthcare.”
Copies of the CD are available from BCCG. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 01525 864406.
