A message from the Communications team at Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust:
Everyone living in north and mid Hampshire is invited to join a free online session to hear more about their local NHS, as part of the Hampshire Together: Modernising our Hospitals and Health Services programme.
The Get to Know Your NHS event, which will take place on Tuesday 9 March 2021 at 7.30pm, has been arranged to provide further information and answer queries on how local services are currently delivered in the lead up to public consultation on the Hampshire Together programme – due to take place later this year.
The aim of the session is to describe how services are currently delivered and from where and explain why it is felt improvements could be made.
Dr Matt Nisbet, a local GP, is one of the speakers who will take part in the event. He said: “We know people are interested in what’s going on in their local NHS and care passionately about the services in their local community. During this event, we will showcase what we currently do and explain how and where we do it before looking ahead to the future.
“We are inviting local residents to join us to hear directly from those involved in the programme. We will also be discussing the best ways to communicate with the public in the lead up to public consultation later this year as we want to hear from as many people as possible.
“We need to get this right in order to provide the right care, in the right place, at the right time, for generations to come in a timely and sustainable fashion – so I would encourage everyone to attend.”
The event will take place online via Zoom videoconferencing due to the current restrictions in place to help combat COVID-19 pandemic. If you would like to take part, you can register by clicking here
The Hampshire Together programme is part of the government’s plan to invest in the NHS and build 40 new hospitals by 2030, with north and mid Hampshire as one of the areas to benefit from funding.
It includes the potential for the construction of a brand-new hospital, with health and care partners working together to develop health, wellbeing and care services that provide everyone across north and mid Hampshire with access to high-quality, timely and sustainable hospital services as close to home as possible.
