Local people are being asked for their views to help shape the future of children’s community health services in South Gloucestershire. NHS South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) – which plans and buys healthcare for the local population – and South Gloucestershire Council want to hear about people’s frontline experiences of children’s community health services. They want to hear from young people, parents, carers, youth workers, schools, and others who have used local children’s community health services. The current contracts for these services are due to expire in March 2016 and a formal procurement process will begin in autumn this year. Dr Kate Mansfield, Clinical Lead for Children and Maternity at South Gloucestershire CCG, said: “We want to ensure we have the best possible services in place for children who need them. “We want to know what is working well – and where improvements could be made. “Your views are important and will help us deliver even better children’s community health services.” Parents and carers are encouraged to complete an online survey with their views and experiences of local children’s community health services. The survey – which can be completed in confidence – is available via The survey only takes a few minutes to complete and will be available online until Monday, 21 July. Further surveys for young people and stakeholders – such as teachers, youth workers and social workers – will be launched shortly. Health visiting, school health nursing, community paediatrics, therapies for disabled children, and mental health and learning disability services are among local children’s community health services that South Gloucestershire CCG is keen to hear feedback on.
