Consultation and Engagement

Below are details about some of our engagement and consultation activities currently taking place:  

Gluten-free foods and over the counter medicines

LCCG has to evaluate every service it commissions to ensure it continues to offer good quality, good outcomes and the best value for money and we now have some difficult decisions to make about prioritising funding for 2017/8 and beyond.
The provision of two key services on prescription has been identified nationally and locally as areas where changes could be made.
Therefore, we are holding a local 90 day consultation to gather views on the prescribing of:
  •  Gluten-free foods 
  •  And medicines that can be bought over-the-counter in shops and supermarkets  
It is important to point out that no decisions have been made on the proposals and we would like to encourage everyone to take the survey and help to inform the decision making process.

We are also mindful of the national consultation that took place earlier this year by Department of Health on the availability of gluten-free foods on NHS prescription. We will be incorporating the recommendations of the national consultation into our own decision making process, as well as considering our own findings locally.

Extended Hours in Primary Care  

From April 2019 LCCG aim to provide a service whereby extended hours appointments are offered to patients on weekday evenings, and at weekends (depending on local demand for patients) regardless of which surgery they are registered at.
It may mean however, that patients visit a nearby practice and see a different health professional from the one they may usually see at their registered practice.
The new changes hope to make it far easier for hardworking people and their families to fit seeing a GP around their busy lives.
To ensure that everyone has an input into the availability of extended opening hours, LCCG and NHS England are holding a month-long online engagement survey from 30 October - 30 November and we are inviting everyone to give us their views:
