New healthcare services announcement in the summer?

Story posted on

Plans to redevelop primary health care services in Wiltshire are expected to be published this summer by the Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

In July 2017, the CCG announced plans for a multi-million pound investment in health services in West Wiltshire, which included plans to redevelop primary health care services in the Melksham, Trowbridge and Chippenham area.

The announcement attracted criticism at the time from local health campaigners who were concerned that the strategic plan failed to mention Westbury. In response the CCG offered reassurance that Westbury was ‘far from forgotten’ and that they were exploring the introduction of new services to improve healthcare in towns across Wiltshire, including Westbury.

However, since the announcement was made, no further updates have been provided by the CCG.

In response to questions from White Horse News, the CCG has disclosed that the original Strategic Outline Case for Chippenham, Melksham and Trowbridge has become part of a bigger piece of work, with further news expected ‘in the summer’.

A spokesperson for the CCG said, “The Strategic Outline Case for Chippenham, Melksham and Trowbridge has been taken into the wider work assessing the service and estates need across the whole of Wiltshire. The strategic estates transformation plan is expected to be published in summer this year.”

    I think taking CBD products should be included with the new health care services in the summer. Taking CBD products will reduce your chronic pain, depression, anxiety, insomnia and many more diseases.
