Healthwatch York

Description:

Healthwatch York’s aim is to put local people at the heart of health and social care services in York. Every year we run a survey to ask people to vote for the topics they want us to work on, with the top two topics making it onto our work plan for the next year.

50% of people who responded to our 2016 survey this year put the closure of Bootham Park Hospital in their top 3. This topic is already on our work plan – our report on the closure and its impact on local people will be published soon. We are committed to working with Tees, Esk and Wear Valley NHS Foundation Trust and the other organisations involved over the next 12 months to follow up the recommendations we have made. We will make sure all the issues people have raised are taken into account when the plans for the new hospital are being drawn up.


 

The two new topics we are adding to our work plan this year are care and support in your own home and continuing healthcare.

39% of people who responded to our survey put care and support in your own home in their top 3. 19 voted it their number 1 priority.

33% of people who responded to our survey put continuing healthcare in their top 3. 20 people voted it their number 1 priority.

Our work on continuing healthcare will start in April 2016.
