Healthy Weston: your views matter
Healthy Weston aims to join up services for better care in the Weston-super-Mare area including services at Weston General Hospital, and since October 2017 we’ve been encouraging staff, carers and members of the public to tell us what they think. Together, we can make sure people have the best possible health and care services suitable for their needs, now and in the future.
We want you to tell us what you think about: building a strong and vibrant future for Weston General Hospital; developing stronger GP services; and creating a ‘care campus’ at Weston General Hospital so that hospital, GP and community health services work better together to care for patients.

Healthy Weston - what's it about?
Healthy Weston is North Somerset CCG’s vision for joining up services for better care in Weston-super-Mare, Worle and surrounding areas. This includes the future for services at Weston General Hospital. Published in October 2017, the Healthy Weston vision was developed by talking and listening to staff, stakeholders, patients, carers and the public about providing the best possible health and care services suitable for people’s needs and sustainable for the long-term.
This work involves looking closely at how services are organised and delivered, how services could work together to provide better joined-up care for patients, and how some services could be delivered differently in the future – something we’re keeping an open mind about. Our ideas are outlined in this summary of the Healthy Weston vision, which is also available to download in our easy-to-read format.
The services we’re looking at include those provided by GP practices, community healthcare services, mental health, the voluntary sector, social care as well as services provided at Weston General Hospital and neighbouring hospitals. We think we already have all the right services available in our area but we could make them work better together to deliver the best, more effective and efficient care for local people. We plan to publish proposals for how services might change in spring 2018.
