Feedback events

Come and hear what people thought of the proposed changes to urgent care in Sunderland

We have given the public the opportunity to have their say about proposed changes to the way NHS Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) deliver urgent care services.

We’ve engaged with over 2,507 people, which is over 1.1% of the population during the public consultation phase which ended on 2 September 2018.

The CCG will now enter into a period of ‘intelligent consideration’ of all the feedback it received during the public consultation period to help inform their decision.

This consideration will include

  • Public feedback sessions including the bespoke travel and transport sessions
  • Focus groups held with the voluntary sector
  • All letters, emails and phone calls received
  • Financial information
  • Feedback from clinicians
  • Modelling on the number of staff available and people currently using the services

You’re invited to the feedback event.

We would like to share with you the findings of the draft report on:

Monday 22nd October 6-8pm – Bede Tower, Burdon Road, Sunderland, SR2 7EA

Book your place here 

Tuesday 23rd October 2-4pm – Houghton Welfare Hall, Station Road, Houghton-le-Spring DH4 5AH

Book your place here

The event on Monday will have a British Sign Language interpreter present and the video of the event will be uploaded onto this website if you couldn’t make it.

If you would like to register by phone or would like further information please contact 0191 512 8458.

We look forward to seeing you.

Members of the public will have until 28 October to give any further comments on the draft feedback report. Further details of how to do this will be available on the CCG website.
