A public consultation is being held to give residents their say on how to improve non-emergency patient transport services in Cambridgeshire.
Public meetings will take place at a variety of locations across the county, including Ely Library (Wednesday September 30, 1.30-2.30pm.)
The public consultation has been launched by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG),
Feedback given during the public consultation will be included in a follow-up report, which will be considered by the CCG governing body, contributing to any further development of these services.
A questionnaire can also be filled in, which must be completed by November 19.
Dr Neil Modha, chief clinical officer, said: “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.”
