NORTH Ayrshire residents are being asked to share their views on priorities for how health and social care services should be delivered across the area in future.

The engagement team at the North Ayrshire health and social care partnership (HSCP) has organised a series of 'locality conversation' events around the area for later this month.

The team is inviting people who use the HSCP's services, as well as other members of the public, to come along and share their priorities for service delivery in the area and their experiences of using such services up till now.

The partnership says all the feedback provided at the events will be used to improve the support provided, and services offered, in the area.

Each event will be attended by HSCP staff and representatives of partner organisations.

The 'conversation' events will be held on the following dates:

Wednesday, April 19: 1-3pm at Clarks Memorial Hall, Largs

Thursday, April 20: 1-3pm at Ardeer Community Centre, Stevenston

Monday, April 24: 10am-12noon at Fullarton Connexions, Irvine

Wednesday, April 26: 10am to 12pm at Bridgend Community Centre, Kilbirnie

Councillor Margaret Johnson, cabinet member for health and social care at North Ayrshire Council, said: “We want to ensure our services are the best they can be.

"In order to do this it’s important that we are able to hear the views of those who use them, their families or carers, or those who may need to use services in the future.

“It’s crucial that we fully understand the problems people might have when accessing our services, identify the types of support people need most and find out if there are any gaps in local provision of services.

“We strive to offer quality services that meet the needs of residents right across North Ayrshire, putting people at the heart of our decision-making and ensuring that the wellbeing of North Ayrshire residents is our utmost priority.  

“By coming along to one of these events, or filling out the online form, you can help to shape the future of health and social care services in your area, letting us know where improvements can be made and helping us develop priorities for each of our North Ayrshire localities.”
