In early 2017 Merton CCG undertook an extensive listening campaign with individuals and groups on proposed changes to other the counter medicines, the prescribing of gluten free products and access to IVF services.
Tamil Elderly Project
We met and spoke to 20 local organisations and approx. 500 people about their views and concerns about any future potential change The groups included, the Tamil elderly project, families and parents who use children centres and local interest groups such as the coeliac group , and hard to reach groups such as the polish community.

Local residents at Commonside Development Trust
We used the feedback to highlight to the governing body the concerns of local residents and groups on any potential changes and the need to take into consideration the impact on groups on low incomes, individuals with a number of long term conditions and the impact of changes to the IVF policy on families and individuals.
