Buckinghamshire County Council (BCC) and Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (BCCG) need your views on local health and social care.

You can consult on care charges, early help, short breaks services, and out-of-hours GP services (in South Bucks).

Adult Social Care Charges – closes 10 December
