This Big Chat brought people together to talk about the challenges faced by the local NHS and what we might do to address them to make services more efficient and effective.


Community services

Date Exercise Ended - Thursday, March 31, 2016

We reviewed our local community services during the early part of 2016 and as part of this we asked residents for their views and experiences. Community services is the collective name for a wide range of healthcare that is often delivered in clinics and other community venues.


Personal health budgets

Date Exercise Ended - Monday, February 29, 2016

We began to design a new Sefton wide policy in 2015 that sets out our approach to offering residents a personal health budget, or PHB. During February 2016 we worked with Sefton Carers Centre to gain views and comments from eligible residents about our planned approach to introducing our new policy.


Trinity GP Practice

Ahead of NHS England’s contract for Trinity GP Practice coming to an end we supported the commissioner to review future management options for this service, and to tell patients and carers about the changes.


Big Chat 5

Date Exercise Ended - Tuesday, September 15, 2015

We combined this Big Chat with our annual review event on Tuesday 15 September 2015. It was a chance for people to hear about our performance and achievements during 2014-2015, as well as giving their views about some of our key areas of work in the year ahead - particularly focusing on community services.


Community dermatology services

Date Exercise Ended - Sunday, July 12, 2015

These services are jointly commissioned with NHS South Sefton CCG and operate from a number of different venues across the borough. Community dermatology services diagnose and treat patients for an extensive range of skin conditions. People are generally referred to the service by their doctor for things like severe eczema that can’t be treated by their practice.


Breast care services

Date Exercise Ended - Friday, February 20, 2015

Between mid January and mid February 2015 we asked people for their views and experiences of local breast care services.


Litherland Out of Hours Pharmacy

Date Exercise Ended - Saturday, January 31, 2015

Sefton residents were asked for their views on proposals to close the restricted opening Out of Hours Pharmacy at Litherland Town Hall Health Centre between December 2014 and January 2015. This consultation followed a review of this NHS South Sefton and NHS Southport and Formby CCG service earlier in 2014 focusing on its effectiveness.


Big Chat 4

Date Exercise Ended - Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Called 'strategy into action', this event focused on how we used people's views and experiences from previous Big Chats, Mini Chats and other public engagement activities to finalise our 5 year strategy for improving services. Held on 19 November 2014, it was a chance to talk more with people about how we intend to achieve our vision for better, more joined up care, which is provided as close to people's homes as possible. During workshop sessions, we asked attendees what they thought about this 'locality' model of care and how it might work for them.
