The NHS in Wirral is changing, and it needs your help
Healthwatch Wirral, along with Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group, is taking part in a national Healthwatch survey to give everyone the chance to contribute to the NHS Long Term Plan. You can give your clients “the voice” by encouraging them to take part in this survey. There is a general survey and a condition specific survey and both, or just one survey, can be completed by an individual.

What would you do to improve local health services?
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 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 via technology, doing more to help people stay well, and providing better support for people with cancer, mental health conditions, heart and lung diseases. Also, long-term conditions, such as disabilities and arthritis, learning disabilities and autism, and for local people as they get older and experience conditions such as dementia.
Your local NHS needs to hear from you about what you think it should do to make care better for your community and what you can do to keep well.
