A big thank you to everyone who joined us in the health tent at Bedford River Festival at the weekend (19 and 20 July).
More than 2,000 people visited the tent where they could get a free health check from our community nurses, pedal their way to a smoothie, talk to the local Healthwatch teams and, of course, find out more about our work as a clinical commissioning group.
Nearly 70 people talked to us in detail about the Healthcare Review. Most felt they received excellent care from the NHS but there were concerns too. These ranged from waiting times for outpatient appointments and some treatments to how local hospitals will cope with the growing population. Some visitors to the tent called for more services to be available at their GP surgery while one made a plea for a park and ride to serve the Luton and Dunstable Hospital.
