Local communities are being asked to share their views on plans for new Community Health and Wellbeing Centres in Kincardine and Lochgelly.
The current Kincardine and Lochgelly Health Centres are recognised as being no longer fit for purpose. The new centres are intended to flexibly meet the needs of the local population, providing a range of services including those provided by GPs, social care and the voluntary sector.
The Initial Agreement Document (IAD) was approved by Scottish Government in January and involved working closely with communities and staff in both areas.
We are now in the process of completing the Outline Business Cases (OBCs), part of the process to support decisions on how public funding is allocated.
As part of that work it is important that we continue to work closely with local communities and services to look further at how the centres could support the health and wellbeing of the populations of Lochgelly and Kincardine.
A number of engagement activities will be held over the next month, providing the communities with the opportunity to have their say and help shape the new centres. With Covid-19 restrictions in place, activities will be conducted mainly via online forums including Practice websites, through voluntary sector organisations and discussion and engagement with interested groups.
You can take part and let us know your thoughts by completing the online surveys below
