Together We're Better Listening Events

The views of local people on what works well, what should be improved and what is important when it comes to health and care in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent are the focus of a major public conversation launching today.

Over the next 12 weeks, the Together We’re Better partnership of NHS and local government organisations, working alongside Healthwatch and voluntary and community sector groups will be listening to what patients, service users, carers, health and care staff and the wider public think about local services and how they can improve.

Views are being welcomed on any aspect of health and care, but particularly on the following areas:

  • Simplifying the local urgent and emergency care system
  • Developing a new vision for health and care in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent that is focussed on high quality community-based care centred on the patient – this will include maternity services, mental health services and planned care (surgery and outpatients)
  • How the local health and care system can embrace and fully utilise new technology and ensure the buildings we deliver services from are fit for purpose
  • Reviewing the use and function of the community hospitals in South Staffordshire
  • Exploring what ‘integration of health and care services’ really means for local people
  • Identifying additional priorities that will deliver clinical and financial stability.

These views will not only help in developing any future service proposals, but also inform the local Five Year Strategic Plan to be published in Autumn 2019. It will outline the local response to the priorities set down in the national NHS Long Term Plan and build on the proposals that were included in the 2016 plan.
