You Said, We Did

NHS Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) regularly talks to local people to get their views on local health services.  We aim to ensure that the services we commission, or buy, reflect the needs of our diverse population.  The CCG wants to give Bolton people more influence and control over the decisions we make.

This page is all about letting you know how your feedback, comments, and views have made a difference to your local NHS.

We talked to children and young people who had used the Children and Adolescents Mental Health Services (often known as CAMHS) together with their families.  They said they wanted the service to be more flexible so it can help everyone and, where appropriate, for families to be more involved.  We used this feedback to make improvements and changes to the service.


You said you wanted better mental health services for children and young people.


People who had used the Improving Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service told us they were happy with the care received but suggested improvements to waiting times and better access for all, including those with sight and hearing impairments.

We used this feedback to amend the service.  We're currently talking to Greater Manchester West and other providers about how the new service will be set up.  We'll talk to patients, GPs, and other health and  care bodies to make sure its as accessible as possible.

You told us access to talking therapies, like counselling, could be improved

Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport will be the fourth hospital to specialise in emergency general surgery.  Four single services will be formed, which are networks of linked hospitals, working in partnership.  A team of medical staff will work together across a number of hospital sites within a single service.  One of the hospitals in each single service will specialise in general surgery.  Salford Royal, Royal Bolton Hospital, and Royal Albert Edward Hospital in Wigan will be working together as a single service, with Salford specialising in general surgery.
