Health bosses have organised an aditional evening meeting as part of the consultation into the Cannock Minor Injuries Unit - in response to public feedback.
Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) held the first consultation meeting last week where the public flagged that they wanted to see a further evening meeting arranged in Cannock.
The CCG listened and announced today that another meeting will be held on Wednesday 24th September at the Civic Ballroom at Cannock Chase District Council, between 6pm and 8pm, which the public are invited to attend.
The CCG wants to engage with as many stakeholders, patients and members of the public as possible o their proposal to operate a reduced hours service at the Minor Injuries Unit. The CCG's preferred option is to retain the unit but reduce its opening hours so that it remains open when patients use it the most. It comes after CCG data shows the number of patients attending the unit drops significantly after 7pm.
The public and stakeholders are also invited to attend the public meetings below so they can share their views on the proposal:
- Thursday 18th September, 6pm - 8pm; Rugeley Rose Theatre and Community Hall, Taylors Lane, Rugeley, WS15 2AA
- Wednesday 24th September, 6pm - 8pm; Civic Ballroom, Cannock Chase District Council, Beecroft Road, Cannock, WS11 1BG
