Get involved in shaping future of local health and care services

Health and care leaders across the county are encouraging people to get involved in helping shape the future of local services.

A draft plan published today by health and care organisations across Herefordshire and Worcestershire provides some early thoughts on how local services might change in response to a challenging context which includes rising demands and poorer health outcomes in some areas.

The draft has been submitted as part of the national Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) programme which encourages local areas to develop 5-year plans (up to 2020/21) to address local health outcomes, care and quality issues and financial pressures.

See press release for full details

And read about:

#yourconversation where residents will be invited to get involved in moving the initial suggestions and ideas forward into more detailed proposals. A new website – www.yourconversationhw.nhs.uk – has been launched where people can read the draft plan as well as a shorter summary update and there is also a survey to complete. In addition through the Your Conversation campaign we will be getting out and about over the next few months talking to patients, service users, carers and members of the wider community. This will include roadshows in local community venues, public meetings and online Q&As.
