Forecast bad weather might affect our services

The Met Office is predicting poor weather may affect West Lancashire between 9am Thursday 6th January 2022 and 9am Monday 10th January 2022. We have plans in place to ensure that essential services continue to operate, but we may need to make changes to service at short notice.

Please check back on this website before setting out for your appointment – we will update this site with details of which services, if any, have alternative arrangements in place or are closed.

Please do not call us to check your appointment unless it is essential, or you cannot attend. During bad weather we receive a significantly increased volume of calls which can delay us in responding to vulnerable service users.

22 February – Update event

West Lancashire’s Citizens’ Panel members got together for the first meeting of the panel on the 22nd February. The meeting was an opportunity for panel members to find out more about our services and how we would be keeping members informed about the latest service developments and engagement opportunities available for members.

Michelle Lee, Managing Director for our services in West Lancashire, introduced the session and answered questions from members. The team leading our transformation programme gave an update on progress with latest projects and opportunities for members to get involved with our service redesign work. The session concluded with a presentation from the communications lead who provided an overview of the Citizens’ Panel and what we hope to achieve as a panel.

One of our members shared their experience of the first meeting: “Thank you to all those involved in our meeting for the time they spent explaining their philosophies , and working practices . It was really appreciated , and I shall do my best to spread the information”.
