Somerset Local Area (Somerset County Council and Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group) were inspected between the 9th and 11th March 2020, with OFSTED and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) finding that the Local Area had significant weaknesses. You can find more details here.

The Local Area has to draw up a plan, a written statement of action, so they improve on the inspectors findings. The plan has to be written, submitted and approved within 70 working days of the report being published. The council and clinical commissioning group are expected to listen to local families as part of this work. We have launched a survey as one way of collecting your views and ensuring these are reflected in the plan.

We are encouraging all parents to get involved by completing the survey online. If you would prefer a copy posted to you please call us on 01458 259384 or email us at and we will be happy to send it out to you. We can also take your responses by phone, leave a message on the answerphone and one of our parent carer representatives will call you back.

The survey can be accessed here and remains open until Midnight Tuesday 30th June 2020. A report will be complied and will be published here within 14 days of the survey closing.
