Transport services consultation underway

Peterborough residents are being urged to have their say on the future of their local Non-Emergency Patient Transport Services.

A public consultation has been launched by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), inviting local residents to share their ideas and views on how non-emergency patient transport services can be improved.

A serie sof public meetings to discuss the proposed changes have been held, with one more to come at Chatteris Library, tomorrow (Wednesday 14 October) from 11am-12pm.

Dr Neil Modha, Chief Clinical Officer, told Connect FM: “This consultation is important in helping us develop our services and to deliver a good quality Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service.

“We want to hear your opinions, and your answers to our questions concerning a service that is crucial for those who may be otherwise isolated, or in need of patient transport for health reasons. We want this service to support all its users fairly and as seamlessly as possible.”
