NHS Long Term Plan for Gloucestershire

We’d like your views on how we develop our NHS Long Term Plan for Gloucestershire. Whether it’s your take on health priorities at each stage of life or how you and your family get health advice, support and services.

Early this year, we welcomed publication of the national 10 year Long Term Plan for the NHS, which is consistent with how support and services are developing locally.

The plan highlights the ambitions to make sure everyone gets the best start in life, to deliver world class care for major health problems and support people to age well. The plan acknowledges there will be challenges along the way across the country.

The Referral Assessment Service (RAS)

A Referral Assessment Service (RAS) has been established to handle all referrals to secondary care for patients living in England with a Welsh-registered GP.  All Welsh-registered GPs with patients who live in Gloucestershire are signed up to the RAS, ensuring timely access to English health care providers for our residents.

We are keen to hear about your experience of using the referral service.  The information that we collect will be helpful in monitoring the quality of the service and could lead to further improvements.  If you have used the Referral Assessment Service you will may have been sent a paper copy of a short survey with your appointment confirmation letter.  You can return the survey to the freepost address provided, or alternatively complete the survey on line here.
