Public views sought on the five-year health and social care plan for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Cornwall’s residents are being invited to play a part in creating a new five-year health and social care plan for Cornwall that covers both adults and children. This plan is due to go to the Government later in the year. The goal of the new strategy for health and adults & children’s social care is to improve the health and wellbeing of Cornwall’s residents and provide seamless services.

Therefore, to achieve this, a series of community events have been arranged from Bude to the Isles of Scilly to survey local communities. Tonight’s meeting will be held at New County Hall in Truro. This meeting will also be webcast via HERE.

From these public meetings NHS Kernow, Cornwall Council and Cornwall’s key health providers are seeking the health and social care priorities of Cornwall’s residents as well as their ideas on how potential savings could be made to help under pressure budgets go further.

It is really important as many people of all ages take part in this consultation as there the way Health and Social Care nationally and in Cornwall will change. Integration is the buss-word, but in reality, this is about improving services for both adults and children that see all organisations working closer together for the benefit of the community.

Also part of the consultation is a public survey which can be completed online HERE. This survey will run until March 25th.
