EMAIL FROM SOUTHWARK PRIMARY CARE TRUST
NHS Southwark is just now embarking on a consultation process, up to April 2009, for our primary and community care strategy, which includes the model for the Dulwich Health and Social Care Centre. As this involves a proposal to develop the new centre on the Dulwich Hospital site, we are particularly keen to hear from local residents.
PDF copies of the Consultation document and the accompanying survey can also be found on www.southwarkpct.nhs.uk The attachments are too large to email, but if anyone would like copies emailed or posted to them please get in touch (details at end). We want to involve a wide range of local people to give us their views and experiences, so if you are able to support us by passing these details onto your friends, neighbours, colleagues or service users, we would very much appreciate it. Paper copies are being delivered from Wednesday, and if you work within a local
organisation and would like extra copies, please let me know.
How can people give feedback?
By POST: The survey can be printed out and when completed posted (no stamp required) to Transforming Southwark's NHS, FREEPOST, Milton Hall, 244 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 4BQ
ONLINE: An on-line survey can be found at www.southwarkpct.nhs.uk
Other methods of consultation
This consultation is being delivered by a consultancy called Vision TwentyOne, who can be contacted on 0845 230 0139. As well as the attached written survey, they will be conducting one-to-one interviews, telephone surveys and focus groups locally, and are particularly keen to get in touch with groups that are seldom heard. If you have any ideas how they may be able to speak with groups of people from different ethnic communities, disabled residents, people with mental health concerns or anyone else who may have difficulty giving their views then please do contact Vision TwentyOne.
If you would like to be on our direct mailing list - or if you have any other queries - please get in touch with our Patient & Public Involvement Team on 020 3299 6444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
