Transforming our Model of Care Update
Healthwatch Cornwall welcomes the update from Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group and Cornwall Council on plans for transforming the model of care and how this will effect health and social care services people receive. Together with professionals, community teams and the Citizens Advisory Panel Healthwatch Cornwall has fed into many of the workshops which are shaping plans.
Amanda Stratford, CEO at Healthwatch Cornwall said “It is good to see a clear timetable laid out for the decisions which need to be made about the options for future services at Saltash, Fowey and Edward Hain community hospitals. This includes a range of opportunities for the public to be involved in the development of options as well as any legal consultation which may be required.
People often tell us they want health and social care services to work more closely together and we want to ensure people have every opportunity to use their local knowledge and experience of services to influence any changes.”

The next meeting in public of the Transformation Board where these details will be discussed is at 11 am on Monday 8 October at New County Hall, Truro.
