Southport Visiter - - Front Page -

THERE is still time for peo­ple in Sefton to have their say on pro­posed changes to treat­ments avail­able to the pub­lic.

NHS South Sefton Clin­i­cal Com­mis­sion­ing Group (CCG) and NHS South­port and Formby CCG are work­ing to­gether with coun­ter­parts in Hal­ton, Liver­pool, St He­lens and War­ring­ton CCGs, to re­view more than 100 poli­cies.

The project aims to make sure health­care fol­lows the lat­est med­i­cal guid­ance and is mak­ing the best pos­si­ble use of NHS re­sources. This first phase has been look­ing at 36 dif­fer­ent poli­cies, with views be­ing sought from the pub­lic, pa­tients and staff for 18 where there are pro­posed changes.

These in­clude nose jobs, re­moval of breast im­plants, cataract surgery and haem­or­rhoidec­tomy.

View all the poli­cies be­ing re­viewed and have your say by com­plet­ing the on­line sur­vey on the web­site www.south­port and­form­by­ccg.nhs.uk or www.south­sefton­ccg.nhs. uk – open un­til Septem­ber 18.
