Something to say about health services?
With an ageing population, more people accessing services and continued funding pressures, local health services are under more pressure than ever before. What we do to address these challenges is one of the most important issues facing local and national decision makers.
We want to know your views. Is there something about health services in Lambeth you think is really important? Do you have an opinion about integrating health and social care, or lifting the strain on A&E departments? Should we focus more on prevention? What would you like to see by 2024? Here’s your chance to get an answer from the people who run Lambeth Council.
Following the really successful full council around youth and young people back in July, we’re again asking you to suggest questions you’d like answered at Lambeth’s next full council on 19 November.
You can send in questions or even come along and pose them yourself if you fancy a trip to the historic council chambers in Lambeth’s Town Hall in Brixton.
How to ask your question
Post your questions below, or tweet us @Lambeth_Council using the hashtag #LambethQuestionTime
You can also submit a short statement to be read out at the meeting to contribute to the debate and tell the council what you want to see happen. Email your statement to us, max 500 words, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Even if you don’t get your questions answered on the 19th, Lambeth councillors will answer all of them on this blog after the meeting.
Get your questions and statements in to us by midnight on Friday 14 November
If you want to come along to the full council meeting, email email@example.com
Get more involved – comment on decisions in your area
Lambeth is a cooperative and open council and we want more residents involved in decision making, whether that’s deciding how services or delivered, or even what services we should be offering.
There are many ways to do this – in July we talked about how you could join the Youth Council, this time we want to highlight how you can comment on consultations about decisions and changes in your local area.
There is a huge amount of regeneration happening in Lambeth – whether that’s the Vauxhall and Nine Elms development, or Future Brixton, or looking at the future of Clapham Leisure centre.
You can find out more about what’s happening in your area on our website including opportunities to comment and get involved in council redevelopment.
