Current opportunities to have your say

This is where you can find details of a range of active CCG engagement work, surveys and events. We will also add links to relevent local and national health consultations and surveys that are seeking views from people like you. They are your chance to have your say on health issues important to you and to help shape the healthcare services and policies of the future. 

Please note that some surveys are from non-NHS organisations and hyperlinks may re-direct you to external web sites.

The CCG cannot be held responsible for the content of these sites. Whilst every effort will be made to remove consultations and surveys that have ended as soon as possible after their ending date, we recommend that you also check the date on the host's web site in case of any delay in doing this or there has been an extension to the consultation period.

Speech, Language and Communication Services 

Take the 4 question survey. Improve speech, language and communication services.- external site 

Why are we asking for your views

We know that some of the current services don’t fully meet the needs of our children and young people, so we want to hear from families about what is good and what needs to be better.

It’s important that no child is left out or left behind because of any difficulties with speaking, understanding or communicating. We’re hearing from lots of different people who support children such as family hubs, nurseries and pre-schools, primary schools, secondary schools, hospital teams and many more. Together we want to improve services for children so things are better both day to day and to help them reach their future goals.   

Who is leading the work to improve services

To help us understand how things are now and where we can make improvements, we’ve set up a Strategic Speech, Language and Communication Need Group where many organisations are coming together to discuss these services.

We’ve also set up a number of working groups looking at particular services, such as services for children that are looked after, early years services (0-5 years), school age children (5-18 years), children with a hearing and vision impairment and children supported by Youth Justice services. These groups will tell us what works well and what needs to change.

We want to have a shared vision amongst families and people supporting children about what a good service is like, so that any changes come from what people tell us.  

The Strategic Group meet every two months, so we’ll be updating you with the progress of this work after each meeting. If you’d like to learn more about this work please visit the page below
