·         the provision of such services to local residents

·         the provision of family health services, personal medical services

personal dental services, pharmacy and NHS ophthalmic services

·         the plans, strategies and decisions of the local Health and Wellbeing Board

·         the arrangements made by NHS bodies for consulting and involving
