Dear Surrey Resident,
You may have heard about Better Services Better Value, a review of local healthcare services across Epsom and surrounding areas and South West London. The review aims to improve clinical quality and safety and improve care and health outcomes for patients.
On Wednesday 20th March we are holding a pre-consultation meeting where you can find out more about these proposals before a formal three month public consultation takes place in the spring.
We would like to invite you to come along, speak with clinicians and give your views on specific areas of the local healthcare system. There will be table discussions which you can join to find out more. These will focus on a number of topics including:
· Emergency and Urgent Care
· Planned Care
· Maternity and Children’s Services
· Out of Hospital Care/Long Term Conditions/End of Life Care
You are welcome to move from one table to another to hear about the different areas of the programme and you will also be able to pick up a copy of our Case for Change leaflet, which sets out the clinical evidence that underpins the proposals.
It is a drop-in meeting so you do not need to stay for the whole event. We will make sure you receive the information you need, even if you can only stay for a short while. You will also be able to register your interest to take part in the formal consultation later on in the year.
If you want to find out more information before the event, please visit the Better Services Better Value website www.bsbv.swlondon.nhs.uk
Date: Wednesday 20th March 2013
Venue: Bourne Hall, Spring Street, Ewell, Surrey, KT17 1UF (please see overleaf for travel information)
Time: 6.00 to 8.30 pm Tea and coffee will be available.
Please contact the BSBV team firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 8251 0512 for further details, or if you have any specific requirements that we need to meet.
We look forward to seeing you on the 20th March.
With best wishes,
Dr David Finch, Dr Howard Freeman, Mr Mike Bailey
Joint Medical Directors of Better Services, Better Value
