Somerset Choices will provide easy access to information and a directory of local services, products, groups and events in their local area. This will include, for example support groups, care homes, help at home, mobility equipment, personal assistants, lunch clubs, exercise groups and breaks for carers. The website will be a valuable tool for patients and clinicians to use.
The site is now live in a test version – which means people can access the site but lots of work is still going on behind the scenes to improve the content and respond to feedback. More local care and support providers are also being encouraged to upload their details so that the site contains a really comprehensive directory of local services. If you have any initial feedback on the website please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Somerset Choices website has been developed by Somerset County Council, in partnership with the local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and District Councils.
