The engagement was part of a national project commissioned by NHS England and Healthwatch England. It focused on the NHS Long Term Plan and asked local people ‘What would you do?’ with the additional money that has been committed by central government to improve and enhance the provision of NHS services over the next 10 years.
This project was delivered through the use of two surveys created by Healthwatch England. One survey focused on people’s general experiences of using health and care services, the other was targeted at people with long-term conditions and their experiences of receiving treatment and support.
Across the country Local Healthwatch gathered survey responses from over 18,000 people.
Locally we gathered:
- 433 general surveys
- 183 condition-specific surveys.
