Health services in Rutland to be discussed at Rutland County Museum

Members of the public have a chance to share their thoughts on the future of healthcare in Rutland.

The Rutland Health and Social Care Policy Consortium will host a meeting to talk about hospitals and other health services.

The consortium is a group of independent residents with an interest and experience in reviewing national policy.

The meeting follows the publication of the government's long-term plan for the NHS and the consortium will create a report for Leicestershire and Rutland health organisations to use.

Spokesman Kathy Reynolds said: "This is building up to be the largest discussion of healthcare services to be held in Rutland in recent years.

"This is an opportunity for people to hear about plans for Rutland and to give their views."

Topics include whether people should access planned and emergency hospital treatment in Leicester, Peterborough or Kettering.

Discussions will include the possible closure of Leicester General Hospital and how services can meet the needs of an ageing population.

The second half of the meeting will look at doctors surgeries, community nursing and mental health care.

The conference takes place on Tuesday, September 4 at Rutland County Museum at 7pm.
