Keeping track of services

We often get queries from people in areas that we do not cover asking who provides a service in their area. What services are provided where seems like fairly key information to be in the public domain to help people access what they need and to plan how services are delivered. However, since about 2000, this information has not been maintained by a public body…. as a result I’ve (Simon) been keeping a map of Environmental Control services going and in the public domain.

This is very rough, and some areas are missing but it is, unfortunately, the best we have.

As part of a couple of projects to do with service development – related to the massive NHS commissioning changes about to happen (another post!) – we are doing a lot more of this and hopefully i’ll be able to publish some better maps soon.

Note: CM host a map and directory of AAC assessment services.
