We need your views to help us transform local NHS services ( posted on Aug 26, 2015 )
Local GP practices, Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust and South Eastern Hampshire CCG are working together to improve NHS services in your area.
Local people have told us that they want to see GPs and other health and social care staff working more closely together. They would also like to be able to access urgent GP appointments more easily, and to have the choice of convenient alternatives such as telephone and online consultations. Local people would also like IT services to be used more effectively so that their patient record is available to all of the professionals caring for them.
GP practices are now working together to see how they can transform local GP services and want to hear your views to help them in this work. You can share your views by completing a quick online survey.
