Our public consultation on the future locations of acute mental health beds for people of working age has now closed. Our engagement on community health and care services is also closed.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pausing the work on improving our community health and care services for at least the next four months. Members of the Fit for My Future team are being reassigned to support frontline services and they will continue to do so for as long as is needed.

We want to support the health and wellbeing of the people of Somerset by changing the way we deliver health and care services, to become much more joined-up and located in the community wherever possible, closer to where people live.

Fit for my Future is the strategy for Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group. It is responsible for planning and buying health services to meet the needs of people in Somerset, now and in the future. We have worked closely with Somerset County Council which is responsible for commissioning adult care and support services.
