In February and March 2017 we will be meeting with people to discuss what is important to them about acute services. This feedback will be collated into themes and called decision-making criteria. For example, people are already telling us they feel strongly about travel times and distances so we expect this will be an important criterion that lots of people feel should influence our plans.
These discussions will be held across Devon in a variety of formats and settings, from council meetings to specially organised public meetings and questionnaires.
The feedback we receive will be presented to the clinicians in each workstream to ensure that the views of our wider staff, stakeholder and public are incorporated into our planning and thinking at the earliest stages.
