Today Healthwatch England launched the #SpeakUp2020 campaign, encouraging everybody to speak up about what would make health and social care services better for their communities.
We need the support of local people in Buckinghamshire to tell us their views, to help make care work for everyone.
Tell us your views
Whether it’s about your access to services, your experience of care or your follow up treatment, we want to hear from you.
We share your views with the decision makers across the NHS, social care sector and Government to ensure that improvements to services are informed by people’s experiences.
Currently, the top concerns across England are:
- Mental Health
- Hospital Care
- Social Care
What could be improved in Buckinghamshire?
We want to hear about your experiences: What was good about the support you received? What could have been improved? What could have been better? Your stories help us identify and investigate the issues that matter to Buckinghamshire.
It only takes five minutes to speak up, but by sharing the changes you want to see, you are helping improve care for everyone. It’s that simple.
Sir Robert Francis, Chair of Healthwatch England, said:
Listening to people’s experiences and understanding what they want to see done differently often provides practical solutions that help hospitals, GP surgeries and care services better manage their increasing demands being placed on them.
At Healthwatch this is what we do. We take the time to listen, and encourage others, especially leaders, across health and social care to do the same. This builds vital insight and understanding that helps makes services make the right changes.
Share your story and help Healthwatch to achieve the goal of collecting the experiences and views of more than 1 million people across England every year by 2023. If it matters to you, it matters to someone else.
