What would you do? NHS Long Term Plan
Healthwatch Bromley has launched the ‘What Would You Do?’ campaign to ask borough residents what they would change about the NHS.
RESIDENTS across the borough of Bromley are being asked for their views on how the NHS should be improved locally to influence the Bromley and SE London local NHS Long Term Plan.
With people living longer, more people having long-term conditions, and lifestyle choices affecting people’s health, changes are needed to keep our NHS sustainable, address inequalities and provide the best possible care for everyone.
The NHS has produced a Long Term Plan for making this happen over the next ten years. It covers:
-Helping more people to stay well and tackling health inequalities.
-Improving how the NHS works so that people can get help more easily and closer to home.
-More money invested in technology and making care better.
The NHS wants to get better at looking after people with cancer, lung and heart diseases, mental illness, dementia, learning disabilities, and autism.
The NHS in every area of the country has been asked by NHS England to come up with a local plan explaining how these priorities will be delivered locally.
Your Healthwatch organisations, placed in each borough, are working together to find out what local people think. What people tell Healthwatch Bromley will be shared with the NHS and will be used to help develop the plan for South East London.
What would you do?
We are encouraging local people to complete straightforward, anonymous surveys to share their views on these issues, which will affect every one of us during our lifetimes. Share your views by completing our survey and help make care better!
The NHS will work only if it is designed around people’s priorities and real-life needs. We need to hear from as many individuals, groups and communities as possible.
The deadline for responses is 30 April 2019. Please complete the survey here.
Or alternatively you can complete the survey by going to Healthwatch Bromley Website here.
Please return all hand completed surveys to Healthwatch Bromley offices at:
