Our Big NHS Change – Communities’ Voice on Health and Care - SEE DOCUMENTS ATTACHED

We recently undertook a 12-week public consultation ‘Hywel Dda – Our Big NHS Change’, between 19 April and 12 July 2018, into the future of NHS health and care services.  I wish to update you on progress to date and the next steps.

Following the consultation, we have received an independent report, detailing the extent and scope of views received from communities in mid and west Wales. The health board provided many different opportunities for people to voice their views, from completing formal questionnaires and writing in to attending events and face-to-face meetings, as well as debate on social media. This report provides the views of those who chose to respond and highlights some key issues for our Board members to consider as part of their decision-making.

We are publishing that report before it is formally received by the Health Board at an extraordinary meeting, due to be held and webcast from Carmarthenshire County Council’s Chambers on Wednesday, 26 September 2018, where a future service model will be discussed. Making the report available now will allow our patients, staff, stakeholders and communities time to read and consider its contents.

Please read the attached letter for more information about what has been heard and what happens next.

The full report and executive summary are available on the Health Board’s consultation web resource at www.hywelddahb.wales.nhs.uk/hddchange. If you have any issues accessing the report please let us know by emailing Hyweldda.Engagement@wales.nhs.uk or please leave a message on 01554 899056.
