Talks held on future of healthcare
TALKS have been held on the future of health provision.
East Leicestershire and Rutland clinical commissioning group (CCG) chief operating officer Tim Sacks met officials from Melton Borough to discuss issues raised as a result of housebuilding in Melton.
Councillor Leigh Higgins, deputy council leader, said: “The people of Melton said loud and clear they want improved patient services and choice for primary care as the town grows.
“At our most recent meeting with the CCG I would say there were robust but very positive discussions had on what the future of primary care service delivery could look like, including at St Mary’s Hospital.
“I felt not only the CCG heard what we were saying but more importantly they wanted to work in productive partnership.”
A spokesman for the CCG said: “The CCG is exploring all sustainable solutions to meet the proposed future needs of patients in Melton.”
