  • Care in the Community

We remain very concerned about
  • the lack of adequate community health care, particularly in the west of the county
  • the impact of the 111 service on out-of-hours provision. 
  • the drive to competitive tendering for health services
  • which inevitably causes fragmentation of the NHS - the very opposite of the integration everyone wants to see
