Views sought on GP out of hours services

[Thursday 01 November 2007]

PEOPLE across the Richmondshire district of the Yorkshire Dales are to be asked for their views on the state of out of hours health services.

The review of the GP out of hours service being carried out by Richmondshire District Council.

What people see to be good or bad and suggestions for improvement are vitally important

William Heslop - Richmondshire District Council

The Council's Community and Environment Scrutiny Committee wants resident's views on the present system, particularly if they have had to call upon the service recently.

William Heslop, Chairman of the Committee, says: "This is the perfect opportunity for the public to tell us exactly what they think of the service they are receiving.

"In 2004, when the new GP out of hours system was about to begin, residents gave their views in a similar exercise - resulting in real changes. For example, the Council was able to secure paramedics stationed at the ambulance station in Bainbridge during the out of hours times when no local doctor was available.

"After we have received the responses, the Committee will be speaking to the organisations responsible for delivering this service. What people see to be good or bad and suggestions for improvement are vitally important to help get the best results in the future."

The review survey is available to residents online at www.richmondshire.gov.uk
