PEOPLE in Gwent are being asked to give their views on the current NHS out-of-hours and 111 services.

The Aneurin Bevan University Health Board’s Community Health Council is asking for the views of residents who have recently used either of the services.

The Community Health Council (CHC) is an independent body representing patients. They do not represent the health board but monitor what is going on inside the health board and how patients needs are being met.

They also make suggestions to the health board about what improvements need to be made in the standard of care and act as a patient’s advocate when making a complaint.

They also make visits to hospitals and primary care facilities to meet patients and those who care for them to find out about their experiences and look at the proposals from the NHS to ensure they will meet the needs of the local area.
