Have your say on review of local health & social care systems
The CQC (Care Quality Commission) is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England. They are currently carrying out a review of 20 local areas including Bradford to get a better understanding of how health and social care services are working together to support people aged 65 and older.
They want to identify; How people move through the health and social care system? How weel it is working? and What improvements can be made? The review will take place in January and February with the final report expected to be released in April 2018.
As part of the review, the CQC will be looking at the following services to establish how they meet people's needs and how they work together.
- NHS Hospitals
- NHS Community services
- Ambulance services
- GP practices
- Care Homes
- Residential Homes
They will also be meeting with frontline staff, local health & care leaders aswell as people who use the services. The views of older people, their carers and families are very important and the CQC are encouraging everyone to have their say.
We will be meeting with CQC on the 31st January to share our views, we are really keen to hear from you so that we can include your experiences in our feedback.
