Your Care, Your Future: Survey

Closed 30 Jun 2015

Opened 21 Nov 2014

Overview

The NHS in England has recently published its Five Year Forward View setting out the importance of transformation across the NHS and social care. Given the ongoing concerns about our ageing and growing population, costs of drugs and new technologies, the increasing number of people living with complex healthcare needs and funding, the NHS will need to do some things radically differently in the future.

The situation in west Hertfordshire reflects the national concerns. Delivering high quality health and care services is already challenging and will become more so in the coming years. Our local population is changing and so are our health and care needs. We must find new ways to provide sustainable high quality health and social care.

A clinical strategy (NHS Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Strategy) was published in 2013 which explained the need for changes. Now local organisations have come together in a partnership to build on that clinical strategy. We are undertaking a programme of work that will develop proposals for the future – to ensure local people have access to quality services in years to come.  Our programme is called Your Care, Your Future and we will engage with a wide range of people to ensure services are both fit for the future and affordable. We want to hear from:

  • patients, service users ,carers and communities
  • clinicians such as doctors and nurses
  • other health and social care professionals
  • stakeholders including patient groups, community associations, politicians and scrutiny bodies
