Local people urged to join in!

#JoinedUpCare partnership re-inventing health and social care services.

Local people are being urged to get involved and join in – as the move to re-invent health and social care services continues at pace.

Health, social and voluntary care organisations from across North Derbyshire are hosting a series of public meetings across communities so people can have their say and contribute their ideas. The partnership is appealing for more people to come along and meet them, as attendance so far has been disappointing.

Head of communications at Chesterfield Royal Hospital, Sarah Turner-Saint is also supporting the programme’s work and comments: “We’ve written to people, advertised in the press, sent out messages on social media and talked about the changes on the radio, but we’ve only had handfuls of people come along to talk to us.  We need the views of our citizens to help to finalise plans and proposals.  They use the services we all buy or provide – and they know what they want from care in the future.  We’re asking them, their family and friends to come and meet us and tell us what they think!”

What do you think?

We want to give our citizens high-quality clinical care, well-organised care and a great patient and service experience. We’d like to hear about your experiences of health and social care - what worked well and what wasn’t so good? If you needed care services in future what would they look like and where would it be provided?
