You will have no doubt have seen in the local media and other communications that a period of public consultation is underway about healthcare in Ashfield.  We’d like to encourage you, your colleagues, family and friends to make your views known about these proposed changes.

The consultation is being undertaken by Mansfield and Ashfield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) which is the new collective of 31 GP practices in Mansfield and Ashfield – which is soon to take over the commissioning of local health services from Nottinghamshire PCT.  Read more about how you can get involved and have your say as a member.
