Have say on plans to change health service

Have your say

Consultation events will help residents have their say on plans to reorganise public health lifestyle services in Derbyshire.

The county council is hosting events focusing on new plans to offer people a single point of access for help to lose weight, stop smoking and be more active.

Wellbeing workers would provide a range of advice and support.

Coun Dave Allen, cabinet member for health and communities, said: “We’re interested to hear from anyone who has an opinion about local lifestyle services, not just people who used them in the past.

“At the heart of these plans to reorganise services is our aim to get help where it is needed most.

The consultation events run until January 16 in Chesterfield.
