Communities in Wiltshire have been informed and consulted on the plans via a number of methods including the use of an on-line survey, focus groups with stakeholders and discussion with potential service providers. The specification reflects those consultations.
The paper also draws on the views of the Healthwatch Implementation Task group facilitated by the LINk (WIN); made up of members of WIN, NHS and Wiltshire Council Officers.
