How can the public get involved?
We have been talking to local people about these issues for many years and this will continue. We are committed to full public engagement because we believe that by talking to local people and stakeholders we are likely to develop better answers. As previously, we will ensure that our various working groups include members of the public, we will retain the Patient and Public Engagement Steering Group that supports SWLCC and we will talk to as many people as possible about the challenges we face, the emerging ideas and the process of change. We would encourage local people to get involved.
