Local people are being invited to hear how the local authority and health services will use feedback on issues raised by the community during the ‘Big Health and Care Conversation’ to shape future services in Brighton and Hove.
The ‘Big Health and Care Conversation: You Said, We Did’ event runs 1.30pm to 4pm on 28 February 2018 at Brighthelm Church and Community Centre in Brighton.
The event is free, but to avoid disappointment please book a place via Eventbrite to attend.
The Brighton and Hove ‘Big Health and Care Conversation’ took place over the last six months of 2017 and provided a number of opportunities for patients and the public to tell the local NHS and council what matters to them in health and social care.
A number of events were held across the city, so as many different people as possible got to talk about what mattered most to them in health and social care. There was also a social media campaign and holding the “Big Health and Care Survey” to gather ideas and feedback from people who were not been able to attend public meetings.
Dr David Supple, Brighton GP and Chair of NHS Brighton and Hove CCG, said:
“We have gathered a huge amount of high quality feedback and ideas for change and improvement, and these will now be incorporated into our work on short and long term planning to meet the needs of the local community.
“We are already responding to some of the points raised and I the Big Health and Care Conversation will play an important role in shaping our work and services in the future.
“We will continue to seek and listen to the views of the local community to ensure that all of our plans for transformation across health and care have the views of those who use them at the centre.”
The ‘Big Health and Care Conversation’ built on previous feedback from patients, carers and the public, and will was designed to ensure that people’s views and experiences are heard, acted on and help shape the way health and care is planned and delivered now and in years to come. The local plans for health and care are part of the wider Sustainability and Transformation Partnership.
