Health and traffic top debate for Craven Area Committee in Cross Hills
9:00am Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in News
South Craven traffic issues, pedestrian safety and health centre services will be among the topics for debate at a meeting in Cross Hills next month.
North Yorkshire County Council’s Craven Area Committee meets at the St Peter’s Church school rooms on Thursday, September 12, at 10am.
Top of the agenda will be highways matters, including the strategic routes from West Yorkshire into Lancashire – such as the A6068 and A56.
Those present at the meeting will include council bosses from Lancashire and West and North Yorkshire, together with a senior government highways officer for the area.
Also up for discussion will be the government’s funding and management system for health care, now being run by the Practice Base Commissioning Group.
Sutton resident Roger Nicholson, a voluntary sector representative on the Craven Area Committee, said: “North Yorkshire County Council has set up a statutory Health Watch organisation to monitor the provision of services by our health centres, which will include listening to patients’ concerns. This will include lack of podiatry and other issues that may arise.”
He urged anyone with matters relating to the provision of county council services to contact Steve Loach on 01609 532216 or e-mail email@example.com, or go along to the meeting.
