Harvey Group Practice, as a member practice of the Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group have put into place the changes recommended from the Lets Talk Campaign.  Full information is on the HVCCG website on: http://hertsvalleysccg.nhs.uk/news-events/893-hertfordshire-nhs-organisations-announce-public-consultations-on-proposals-for-service-changes  and we were pleased that members of our Patient Participation Group were able to comment on these and feedback into our last PPG meeting to advise patients.
