New County wide engagement programme
People across Devon are being asked to help shape the future of health and care in the county by sharing their views as part of a major eight week, engagement programme.
Devon is developing a local version of the NHS Long Term Plan, called Better for you, Better for Devon.
The research will involve focus groups, face-to-face discussions and surveys.
1,700 members of the public who form a Citizen’s Panel will be involved as well as surveys of GP Practice Participation Groups (PPGs) and phone questionnaires with patients.
Local people will be asked a range of questions including:
How can we work more closely with volunteers and the voluntary sector to better support people to live healthier and for longer?
How can we better support people in their communities and in their own homes?
What could we do to promote careers in health and social care (e.g. working with schools and young people)?
More details about opportunities to help shape these plans will be shared shortly. In the meantime, you are being invited to complete an online survey which can be accessed by following the link below.
You can also download our new report which looks at what over 1,000 residents in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay said about the NHS Long Term Plan
