Update to five-year health and social care plan published following public feedback
Published: 01 August 2017 | Categories: Uncategorized
The organisations that commission and provide health and social care services across Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County have today published an Update to their joint, five-year Plan for health and social care in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
The draft Plan was published in November 2016. Since then, the Partnership has been seeking and listening to the views of local people, staff and stakeholders through meetings, events and written feedback.
A total of 395 people attended the four public events held in January and February this year. In addition, 80 representatives from the voluntary and community sector came together for an engagement event for those working in organisations that support local people alongside mainstream health and social care services. Written feedback from 69 respondents was also received via email and an online survey.
Views were sought on the five priority areas and the strategic direction of the draft Plan. General comments on the contents of the Plan were also captured through the various feedback opportunities.
The full breakdown and summary of the feedback received was published last month and today the STP publishes an Update to the initial Plan, reflecting the comments and suggestions of those who gave their views. There are specific sections on mental health and services for children and young people and carers as these were areas that people felt needed strengthening within the Plan.
