Announcement from NHS Warwickshire
Read and react if you’re in the HealthWatch Warwickshire area – thank you. Please do not contact SOS directly in relation to this – email and postal addresses are listed at the end of this post.
Healthwatch Warwickshire have been tasked with gathering feedback from the public on the NHS long term plan and how this will be implemented locally. As part of this engagement Healthwatch England have developed a survey. We want to get input from as many people as possible and we would really appreciate it if you could share this email among groups, colleagues, friends, family, residents, service users or anyone else who you think may be interested. See below for further information about the consultation and links to the survey.
We have hard copies we can send to groups so people can fill them out return back to us for free with a freepost address. I am keen to get as manycompleted as we can as the closing date is 30th April 2019.
Any questions let me know.
Thanks in advance,
NHS Long Term Plan – survey
The NHS in Warwickshire is changing. With growing pressure on the NHS – people living longer, more people living with long-term conditions, and lifestyle choices affecting people’s health – changes are needed to make sure everybody gets the support they need.
The Government is investing an extra £20bn a year in the NHS. The NHS has produced a Long Term Plan, setting out all the things it wants health services to do better for people across the country. Now your local NHS needs to hear from you about what those changes should look like in your community.
The Long Term Plan sets out what the NHS wants to do better, including making it easier for people to access support closer to home and via technology, doing more to help people stay well, and providing better support for people with cancer, mental health conditions, heart and lung diseases, long-term conditions, such as diabetes and arthritis, learning disabilities and autism, and for people as they get older and experience conditions such as dementia.
Your local NHS needs to hear from you about what it should do to make care better for your community.
- How would you help people live healthier lives?
- What would make health services better?
- How would you make it easier for people to take control of their own health and wellbeing?
- What would you do to make support better for people with long-term conditions?
Share your views with Healthwatch Warwickshire and help make your local NHS better for everyone in Warwickshire.
