“Challenges” for local health and care services – join the conversation
Today I publish the second paper in my current project discussing “your local health and care services”. The paper thinks about the “Challenges” facing us all going forwards. You can find a copy here:
Though we have happily celebrated 70 great years of our NHS this paper poses a number of questions about how we maintain our services in to the future. The list is not exhaustive but I hope it stimulates discussion.
(Dawn on a previous visit to a local pharmacy with Community Pharmacy Wales)
The questions fall in to eight sections:
- Personal and community wellbeing,
- Seamless health and social care,
- Physical and mental wellbeing,
- Technology and digital services,
- User and patient voices,
- Measuring success,
- Delivering the new vision – A Healthier Wales.
The list is not exhaustive, it should not constrain our conversations. The paper sets out just a sample of the many questions I hope to have conversations about over the Summer and Autumn as I visit a range of local health and care facilities in Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney to discuss the new health and care strategy for Wales. I am meeting with providers and users/patients of services. I hope to learn about best practice and consider what happens if things do not work.
I am considering all this in the context of the constituency of Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney.
If you live here, or use services here, please join the conversation.
