Extended Access to GPs survey
Coventry and Rugby CCG is asking local people to complete a survey to help them develop GP services that meet the needs of local patients. They need to ensure that everyone has easier and more convenient access to GP services, which includes offering appointments at evenings and weekends. This means ensuring services are joined up, make the best use of the resources available and helps us to continue improving health and care for patients.
The survey will take approximatly 10-12 minutes of your time.

Gluten-free food on NHS prescription in England - 01/10/18
A new consultation which follows on from the March 2017 consultation, 'Availability of gluten-free (GF) foods on prescription' has been launched.
The Department of Health & Social Care (DHSC) is now consulting on the draft regulations which will allow bread and mixes to be the only GF products to be prescribed at NHS expense. GF products that fall outside the category of a bread or a mix will no longer be prescribed at NHS expense.
The consultation closes on 1st October.
Public asked for views on calorie labelling when eating out - Deadline 07/12/18
The government has opened a public consultation on how to introduce calorie labelling for food and drink consumed outside of the home. The consultation will also seek views on how this could apply to:
- small businesses
- street vendors
- restaurants with fast-changing menus
- online takeaway businesses
Calorie labels are already widely displayed on packaged foods in supermarkets and in some big chains including Wetherspoons and Subway. The new plans are intended to make sure that labelling is applied consistently so that families know how much they and their children are eating when out.
The consultation ends on 7 December 2018
Major review of clinical advice process for Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman
The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman (PHSO) has launched a consultation on how it makes use of evidence from clinical experts when it reviews complaints.
Around 88% of their casework relates to complaints about NHS bodies. Last year they conducted some 2,500 health investigations. Advice was requested from clinicians in almost three-quarters of these cases.
It is therefore essential that:
- PHSO ask the right questions about the clinical issues that arise in a case
- The responses PHSO receive are of the right quality
- it is clear to complainants and NHS bodies how this has informed the final decision.
The consultation closes on Monday 15 October 2018.
