One of the most common concerns we hear is about the access to local health services. While provision of healthcare is not an EHDC remit we work with local surgeries to help them move into new premises or to channel developers contributions to them.
With changes to the NHS including structures like CCG’s (Clinical Commissioning Groups) funding, supporting new services and also looking ahead at our aging needs for adult care is a big issue.
Our next Community Forum on Wednesday 14th December 2016 will cover the NHS and ‘Can you get the health services you need?’ – all are welcome at Merchistoun Hall from 6:30.
The Police will also be holding a surgery from 5:30 before the Community Forum so please come along to ask them any questions you have.
