NHS England have asked Healthwatch (via local Healthwatches) to engage with the public on the content of the NHS Long Term Plan. Our local Healthwatches will therefore be doing targeted public engagement to find out what local people think. We will be able to draw on this engagement as we develop a longer-term plan for the Integrated Care System, due in the autumn.
The Healthwatch survey can be found on their website here. This survey will close at the end of April 2019.
In June 2019 Healthwatch Central Bedfordshire, as the co-ordinating Healthwatch across BLMK, will publish a public report about the information gathered via the survey. We will use the views to help inform the plans we produce in the autumn.
There is a British Sign Language video available here, which explains the engagement that is being undertaken.
