Consultation on Social Care Savings
Merton Council is seeking feedback on the proposed budget and savings next year in 2015/16 and then from 2016/19. The discussions had at this consultation will feed directly into the budget setting process that is currently taking place. This process also includes the Health and Social Care Scrutiny panel looking at the proposals and making recommendations back to Cabinet. Your views from the event will be included in this formal procedure to help shape the future of services in our borough.
The second section of the event will be an open discussion on how Merton Council could develop or improve its engagement and relationship with you - service users, carers, representative groups or organisations and the voluntary sector.
The Clinical Commissioning Group are also invited to take part in this discussion to ensure what is learnt from you is heard by health care commissioners too.
Merton Council have provided lots of detailed information on these proposed savings on their website. The Social Care team have also set up an email address to receive comments on this consultation - ASCconsultation@merton.gov.uk
