Fit For My Future was launched to the public on 2nd October 2018 but began to engage early in the summer with some key individuals and representatives. Their aim was to inform and engage with staff, patients and service users, public and stakeholders on the case for changing health and care services in Somerset and to share emerging ideas of how it could look in future.
Fit For My Future are now looking at the criteria that should be used to reduce the long list of possible options down to a short list of proposals for public consultation in Autumn 2019. Led by Evolving Communities, who run Somerset Healthwatch, there have been some initial public and staff views shared through a series of focus groups. They are carrying out a short public engagement to find out how they would like them to assess potential options for the future.
