Adequate provision of health services regardless of postcode

Where you live shouldn’t change what services you get, it should be based on need. Sometimes smaller communities have a smaller voice and can’t fight to get and keep funding. Communities get used to a service and then it gets taken away because of lack of funding.

Also some services can vary in quality from area to area, and it is hard for communities to know if their service is as good as it can be so there should be good information to allow better understanding.

Why the contribution is important

Where you live shouldn’t change what services you can access. Everyone should have a right to access the high quality services they need.

    Idea from Fairer Scotland Dumfries Planning Event:

    People who live in a rural area feel that a range of health care services should be available locally, and they need to be better resourced.

    This came out of a conversation about some health services being removed from rural areas and 'centralised' in larger cities, which for them created issues of accessibility.
