Help improve your community

[column]People living on the Fylde Coast have been asked to give their views on what is good and what could be improved about where they live.

Healthier Fylde Coast – a partnership of local organisations working together to improve health and wellbeing – has launched the ‘Your Community Neighbourhood Plan’ survey to better understand people’s perceptions about where they live.

There are 11 neighbourhoods across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre covering populations of between 30,000 and 50,000. GP practices, community health services, councils, the voluntary sector and local residents work together within neighbourhoods to improve health and care.

Bosses at Healthier Fylde Coast want to use the information gathered from the survey to help the neighbourhoods develop their own individual plans for how to make improvements to the communities they serve.[/column][column]

Dr Amanda Doyle OBE, accountable officer for NHSBlackpool and NHS Fylde and Wyre Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), said:“If you live in Blackpool, Fylde or Wyre we want to hear your views about yourcommunity.

“We also want to ask how the organisations within your community, such as GPs, social care and councils, can work together to improve health and wellbeing in your community.

“I would urge everyone in the area to complete the survey and be a part of real change for your local area.”
