Review of Minor Injuries Services for West Glasgow

NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde are going to review the options for minor injuries services for people in West Glasgow, East Dunbartonshire and West Dunbartonshire.
It will look at:

• how accessible minor injuries services are for people in Greater Glasgow and Clyde
• how many people need to use minor injuries services
• the money required for minor injuries services and
• how patients and the public will be involved and engaged in this process.

You can find out more about the review on the NHS GGC website.

There will be two public consultation events in early September and once we get the dates, time and venues we will let you know.

Your views on local priorities

East Dunbartonshire Community Planning Partnership has identified six themes where it would like to make improvements and wants to involve local people. There is an online survey at, or if you would prefer a paper copy please contact Carers Link.  Theme 6 is vulnerable people and carers, but none of the questions relate directly to carers – so you may have ideas to put in the “Have we missed something?” box. You have until 7th July to complete the online survey, and 28th July for paper copies.

Your thoughts on the Social Security (Scotland) Bill

The Scottish Government will soon be introducing a Bill to Parliament which will provide the legislation needed for them to set up a social security agency in Scotland and administer the devolved benefits, including Carers Allowance and benefits for disabled people. Carers Link have organised two consultation meetings so that carers can find out more about the bill and input their views. They are on Wednesday 19th July, Kirkintilloch, 10.30am – 1.30pm, and Friday 21st July, Milngavie, 10.30am – 1.30pm You can book a place through our online calendar or by calling Heather on 0800 975 2131.
