Please read- Statement from Cheshire & Merseyside Health and care partnership
27 August 2021
A small group is being formed to help look into the pressures on the health and care system. They will work to ensure no part of the system is creating unnecessary work for another and hope to identify where there are gaps in capacity.
They would like to hear from you with regards to any thoughts or ideas that you feel would help.
They wish to thank those working in healthcare at the moment for all they are doing to serve their patients. We have been dealing with extreme demand and unsustainable workload for some time now and we know that this is continuing. However, it is important that we stand united together as healthcare professionals as we look to restore our services to better help our patients who need.
