HAVE your say on Cannock Minor Injuries Unit

Comments (1)

PEOPLE can have their say on the Cannock Minor Injuries Unit next month.

Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has announced details of the forthcoming consultation which will run from Monday, September 1 to Sunday, September 28.

The CCG want to engage with as many stakeholders, patients and members of the public as possible on their proposal to operate a reduced-hours service at the Minor Injuries Unit.

The CCG’s preferred option is to retain the unit but reduce its opening hours so that it remains open when patients use it the most. It comes after CCG data shows the number of patients attending the unit drops significantly after 7pm.

A consultation document outlining the background and context to the proposal in more detail and the way in which stakeholders and the public can feed back their views is being produced. It will be publically available from September 1, 2014.

CCG Chairman Dr Johnny Mcmahon said: “I would urge as many people as possible to book a place and attend one of our meetings so they have chance to feed into the consultation process and into the final decision.”

      If the Cannock CCG was genuine in their wish to engage as many people as possible, WHY are they holding their meetings in Cannock and Hednesford during the working day, which will prohibit a huge number of people from attending!
