Members of Calderdale Council’s People’s Commission are visiting venues around Calderdale in a series of public consultation events.

The People’s Commission is currently reviewing local health services and these events will give local people an opportunity to debate what services are needed now and in the future within Calderdale.

The Commission is made up of a panel of representatives, including Calderdale Councillors from the three main political parties and an independent chair, Professor Andrew Kerslake, an Associate Director of the Institute of Public Care. Between Monday, August 4, and Tuesday, August 19, members of the panel will host a number of events where they are particularly keen to hear the views of residents.

The meetings will take place as follows: Monday, August 4, Central Library, Halifax, 4pm-6.30pm; Wednesday, August 6, Todmorden Town Hall, 4pm-6.30pm; Thursday, August 7, Threeways Centre, Halifax, 4pm-6.30pm; Friday, August 8, Brighouse Civic Hall, 4pm- 6.30pm; Wednesday, August 13, Elsie Whiteley Innovation Centre, Halifax, 4pm-6.30pm; Tuesday, August 19, Clay House, West Vale, 4pm-6.30pm.

If you can’t attend the meetings, there’s still time to send in your experiences of local health or social care services and how you would like to receive services in future, by contacting the People’s Commission in the following ways: writing to People’s Commission, Town Hall, Crossley Street, Halifax, HX1 1UJ; emailing peoplescommission@calderdale.gov.uk; or via Twitter at @Calderdale using the hashtag #HealthyViews

The closing date is Friday, August 1, 2014, although the panel will continue to review people’s comments until the Commission closes in the autumn.
