Glossopdale patients will have the chance next month to ask questions about the new Integrated Care System, which is being introduced from April.
It had been expected for Glossop to be included with Tameside as part of the Greater Manchester Integrated Care System, but the decision was taken for it to be included in the Derbyshire ICS.
The new ICS, which will oversee health and care services, wants to reassure residents and patients who may be concerned about what the changes will mean to them.
The first information session will be held between 2pm and 3.30pm on 27 January 2022 and you can register at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/GlossopICS
Derbyshire ICS has said its immediate priority will be to ensure a smooth transition of healthcare services.
A spokesperson said: "Our intentions are that from 1 April 2022, services will continue to be delivered in the same way as they are at the moment, and we expect that to be the case for the next 12 months."
The aim of the new ICSs is to improve the way health and social care services are delivered through closer joint working.
“Over time we will be looking for service improvement opportunities, but we want to assure you that where the potential to change and improve services is identified, we will involve local people in discussions from the start," a spokesperson continued.
