FIT FOR THE FUTURE
Improving Community Health Services for Patients in Ashby
You are invited to have your say on proposals to make Ashby community health services fit for the future. From Thursday 6 February 2014 the West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are asking people to pick one of two options and provide their comments on the future of the community health services provided from Ashby and District Hospital.
Community health services are about non-emergency, non-critical care, including those delivered in hospital and people's homes. More »
The consultation is being run by the CCG, which plans and purchases local healthcare, and Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT), which provides the community health services in the county.
Details about the need for changes can be viewed here
This consultation is not about making cuts and saving money. It is about providing the right care, in the right place, when people need it, while making sure the money available does all of those things as effectively as possible.
HAVE YOUR SAY
CCG would like you to look at the consultation document , which tells you about current services and how they are used, and asks you to choose between two options for the future and to add your own comments.
For printed copies of the consultation document and questionnaire, with a Freepost reply address, please call our Engagement Team on 0116 295 4183 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Public consultation events are being held to discuss the issues and options, hear what others are saying, and to have your own say:
5 March 2014, 2.30pm – 4pm, The Royal Hotel, Station Road, Ashby-De-La-Zouch, Leicestershire, LE65 2GP (registration and refreshments from 2pm)

Ibstock Parish Council will now hold its monthly meetings at the
Ibstock Miners Wefare
The Palace is one of the earliest purpose-built cinemas in the country. Retaining many of its original features, the building has been sympathetically converted for use as a general purpose community venue, suitable for a wide range of social, artistic and commercial activities.
The Palace is owned by Ibstock Parish Council and managed for them on behalf of the local community by The Palace Community Centre Ltd., a registered charity.
Ibstock Palace relies on a team of volunteers to help organise and run events throughout the year. More »
As a volunteer you can decide exactly how much and how often you want to be involved. All your efforts, however small or infrequent, will be greatly appreciated.
The types of jobs our volunteers assist us with include bar work, washing glasses, tea-making & serving refreshments, box office, selling tickets, helping with publicity, distributing leaflets/letters, occasional cleaning, setting out chairs/tables, stewarding, flower arranging etc.
They rota the volunteers so that we are not always approaching the same people to help with every event. Don't worry if you haven't experience in these areas as they can help you develop the necessary skills.
They are always interested in any suggestions you may have in helping us to continue to develop the running of our Community Centre.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or would like any further information, contact Gary on 01530 262400 or e.mail: email@example.com
