Local residents were presented with three different options, and were able to give feedback on the proposals. At the end of the consultation period, Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) had received over 4,000 survey responses, and petitions with over 10,000 signatures.
Many people did not feel that the proposals were suitable, and the CCG is now reviewing other options.
Our Strategic Advisory Group have agreed on the following areas which we believe are crucial parts of any further consultation in this area:
- The communication and inclusivity of the consultation proposals
- The ability of primary care services to provide urgent appointments
- Access for people in the South of the city and vulnerable people in the city centre
Our representatives will advocate for these principles at future meetings about changes to urgent care across the city.
