People living in and around Dorset are being reminded to have their say on proposals that could see changes to local healthcare as part of the ongoing Clinical Services Review.

Thousands of questionnaires have been made available through GP practices, hospitals and local libraries since the launch of the consultation with people being encouraged to read the supporting information and make their views known.

Proposals include changes to the acute hospitals in Dorset (the development of a major planned hospital and major emergency hospital) along with community services which will bring care closer to home for many people. Whilst proposals cover services across the whole of the county, anyone responding is able to just give feedback on the services that directly affect them if they prefer.

The consultation ends on 28 February 2017 after which all views will be considered before final proposals are considered later in the year.
