Statement from District Council Leader and Cabinet regarding health service provision
Cabinet is aware of the Case for Change report produced by NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), and this will now be followed by a consultation process looking at health service provision in the Forest of Dean.
Cabinet is pleased that a District Council Officer has been invited to sit on the Infrastructure Programme Board, which will give the Forest of Dean community the opportunity to fully respond to the pending consultation.
At this stage the consultation will not be considering the location of health service delivery, only the services provided.
The Leader and cabinet acknowledge the public interest in this matter and will issue regular communications in order to keep residents updated.
