People across Sefton have been given the opportunity to help shape the future of health, care and wellbeing across the borough.

3623013733?profile=RESIZE_710xAnyone with an interest in health and care is being encouraged to take part in a survey which will help develop the borough wide Sefton NHS Five Year Plan, Shaping Sefton II.

When finalised, the plan, will be the borough’s response to the NHS Long Term Plan, published at the start of this year. Currently in draft form, Shaping Sefton II builds on the vision for transforming health and care set out in the original Shaping Sefton plan, developed in 2014.

Already the subject of engagement with health, care and wellbeing professionals and volunteers across Sefton through a range of events; there is now a chance for everyone in the borough to help shape the final document via the online survey.

The new five year plan will aid the delivery of our local Health and Wellbeing Strategy, currently being refreshed by Sefton Council, and will also support the work of the Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership in developing its response to the national NHS Long Term Plan.

Fiona Taylor, chief officer of NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Southport and Formby CCG and the senior responsible officer for the Sefton Health and Care Partnership, said:

“This is a great opportunity for everyone in Sefton to have a look at our draft plan and let us know if we are heading in the right direction for the next five years.

“Shaping Sefton II is a very important plan as it looks to build on the successes of the original document while looking at some of the biggest health and care challenges we are facing together between now and 2024.

“We have based our thinking on your health and care priorities including the findings of the Sefton Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) which outlines the health and care needs of everyone in the borough.

“I would encourage as many people as possible to have a look at our new draft plan, tell us what they think, and more importantly let us if we have got our priorities and ambitions right – or indeed if we have missed anything?”
