The way health and social care services in West Dunbartonshire and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are provided is changing and residents are being urged to get involved in the process.
Managers, clinicians and planners are working together and are engaging with patients, service users and staff to develop plans for a better health and social care system for people.
An event is being held in Balloch for patients who wish to know more about this new system of care. It will be held in the National Park HQ on Carrochan Road on Thursday 7 June from 5.45pm – 8.15pm.
West Dunbartonshire HSCP’s Chief Officer Beth Culshaw said: “Our aim is for people to be able to stay in their communities and access primary and community care services close to home, while being able to access high quality hospital-based care when the required level of care or treatment is needed.
“We need to ensure that care is organised in the most effective way to provide safe, effective and sustainable care to meet the current and future needs of the population.
“We will patients to improve their own health, manage their own long term conditions and live independently at home for longer. We hope that people take this opportunity to find out more about how care will be shaped in West Dunbartonshire in the future.
“You will be able to hear about progress to date and how staff and the public have been involved in the programme. This is an opportunity to comment and ask questions about how services move forward.
