Herefordshire CCG are undertaking activities and events to listen to the views and experiences of local people, regarding community health and care services.
We have been seeking your views on what local community health and care services could look like in Herefordshire. We want you to be involved in how we shape services for the future.
YOUR FEEDBACK SO FAR
More than 800 Herefordshire residents have spoken about how they see future health and care services being developed in their communities across the county.
From July to early October 2017 the CCG collected feedback about local people’s experiences with primary and community care services, so that they are able to design future services that are tailored to what matters most for patients.
During this period 803 people were involved through:
• Locality public sessions (243)
• Interviews at G.P. surgeries, libraries and other locations (104)
• Online survey (298)
• Service-user focus groups (26) and events (20)
• Health professionals and partnerships (65)
• Kington Health Commission and Joint event with Healthwatch Herefordshire (47)
Throughout the process, the feedback from each locality has been shared and published (below) on the CCG’s website and the full report being presented can be viewed at Governing Body Papers 2017
We are currently in the process of planning our continued public and stakeholder engagement for 2018. Once scheduled, new events will be published here.
The CCG in partnership with Kington Town Council have established a Kington Healthcare Commission. This commission involving representatives from the Kington community and representatives from health providers and commissioners, as well as Herefordshire Council has been formed to consider how care services can be provided for the residents of Kington and the surrounding communities. The terms of reference for the commission were approved by the Governing Body in June 2017. This initiative is aimed at co-producing solutions in collaboration with the community of Kington. The learning from this work will be used to inform work across the county and other localities.
