The NHS has produced a Long Term Plan, setting out all the things it wants health services to do better for people across the country. This includes: making it easier for people to access support closer to home and via technology, doing more to help people stay well, and providing better support for people with long-term health conditions.

While the national plan has set some clear goals, it’s up to local areas to decide how they’re achieved. Now is the time for people in West Berkshire to have a say and help shape what the plan should look like in their communities.

Healthwatch England are running two online surveys until April 23rd to gather people’s views. You can read more about these below.

What would you do to give people better control of their care?

We want to hear your views about what your local NHS can do to help you and your community to stay well, and to make the support available better.
Tell us what is important to you when it comes to things like, managing and choosing the support you need, keeping your independence and staying healthy as you get older, being supported to live a healthy life. The survey is located here
What would you do to give people with conditions better support?

If you or a loved one have had any experiences with services that look after conditions such as, cancer, mental health, heart and lung diseases, dementia, autism, learning disability, or other long-term conditions, then your local NHS needs to hear from you.
Have your say to help make these services better where you live. The survey can be found here
 

These two surveys can also be found in alternative formats, such as easy read and BSL. Please click HERE for information about this.
