For the first time that we know of, Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Health, wants to hear from people with lived experience to inform a new strategy he’s producing on primary (GP's) & community care. It's a great opportunity to tell our stories, influence Government thinking & constructively challenge thinking with regard to what is politically being discussed & the reality of what is happening on the ground. I've been invited to take part in the discussion this Weds & if you have/have had PP I really value your thoughts on the questions below.
The discussion will be based around these six questions:
1.What are the best parts of the care you receive?
2.What are the parts which aren’t working as well?
3.What three things would improve your care?
4.From your experience, what are the greatest barriers or difficulties in receiving the care and support that is specific to your needs?
5.Have you been involved in planning your care which is specific to your needs and did you feel a difference in how you received care after that?
6.What would you like to see improved?
If you have any comments, thoughts or experiences you'd like me to highlight, please share them here.
Our PP voices will be heard! Many thanks all.
