Hammersmith & Fulham CCG has launched its consultation of primary and urgent care changes in the borough this week (Monday 8 April). The proposed changes will be presented to the public for its consideration over the next seven weeks (ends Sunday 24 May).
What is being proposed in this consultation?
- To change the hours of the urgent care centre at Hammersmith Hospital from 24 hours a day 7 days a week, to 8am-midnight 7 days a week.
- To change the number of GP ‘hubs’ that allow anyone in Hammersmith and Fulham to access an out of hours GP or nurse appointment.
Healthwatch Hammersmith & Fulham’s Local Committee supported Hammersmith & Fulham CCG with the consultation by providing feedback through a series of meetings, enabling the CCG to produce a document that clearly presented the proposed changes.
Olivia Clymer, CEO of Healthwatch Central West London, comments:
“It is important that Hammersmith & Fulham CCG’s proposed solutions are clearly presented to local people, in a jargon-free, informative and balanced consultation document. The purpose of the Healthwatch Hammersmith & Fulham Local Committee is to aid local health service leaders by providing patient-led research and feedback.
