Healthwatch Cornwall is supporting Cornwall Council and NHS Kernow’s survey that is seeking the views of Cornwall’s residents to help them shape the future of the county’s health and social care services.
Chief Executive Debbie Pritchard said: “We want to ensure service providers and the public have the opportunity to have their say on how changes can be made.
“It is essential that people input into this survey so they can influence decisions relating to the long-term delivery of their health and social care services, and their future needs can be met more effectively.”
The joint survey asks people about their priorities for health and social care in Cornwall and ways they believe potential savings could be made to help health and social care budgets go further. The survey will be followed by a series of public, community events across Cornwall and Scilly in March.
Visit www.cornwall.gov.uk/shapethefuture to complete the survey by the March 14.
Events specifically for providers are taking place on February 23 and 25. Healthwatch Cornwall is facilitating these events. They will bring together providers from across health and social care, housing, education, voluntary, public and private sectors in an open forum to work together to develop solutions that will help deliver better outcomes for people in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
