There are two consultations on health taking place at present:

 

Better Beginnings
Better Beginnings public consultation on maternity, in-patient paediatric and emergency gynaecology services in East Sussex
The formal public consultation on the future of NHS maternity, in-patient paediatric and emergency gynaecology services in East Sussex was launched on Tuesday 14th January 2014 by the clinical commissioning groups (CCGs). It closes on 8th April 2014  and the CCGs will make a final decision in Summer 2014. To take part in the consultation click here.
 
Third sector involvement with local health and wellbeing boards  
Regional Voices, which support the third sector to have an influence on health and wellbeing boards would like to invite you to take part in their second survey to find out how health and wellbeing boards are developing in the different areas and what needs to be addressed collaboratively.  For further information or to take part in the survey click here.

 

In July 2013 11 organisations wrote a response to the East Sussex Hospital Trust (ESHT) consultation on their draft patient experience strategy. The report looked at the actual experience of patients in hospital, how it could be improved and what the Third Sector could do to help ESHT achieve those improvements. No response has yet been received from ESHT. To read a copy of the report click here.
