Urgent Care Strategy Meeting – March 21

Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (BNSSG CCG) will be producing an urgent care strategy which will set out their future plans for commissioning urgent and emergency care across the whole area.  The CCGs’ aim is to ensure that their population has access to the best care from the right person in the best place and at the right time.

There will be a workshop to capture local people’s thoughts and the reasons for choosing a particular urgent and / or emergency care service.  The aim is to highlight areas where the system is not working and where the patient and carer experience is poor, as well as identifying the areas where urgent and emergency care services are working well.

Update: If you can’t attend the meeting on 21st March, but would like to feed into this important strategy, please fill out the following short survey: BNSSG Urgent Care Strategy Survey
