How can digital technology improve health and care services?

Share your ideas at a focus group in Grimsby on Tuesday, 4th June to help shape how health and care services are delivered in your area.

Across Humber, Coast and Vale we are looking for ways to harness the latest digital technology and innovation to transform the way we deliver health and care services.

To achieve this important objective, the Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership is developing a digital strategy and wants people who live and work in the area to have the opportunity to shape this strategy.

The Partnership is holding several focus groups in the region to give our people the opportunity to share their views.

When: Tuesday, 4th June 2019 (10am-11.30am)

Where: Humber Royal Hotel, Littlecoates Road, Grimsby, DN34 4LX

If you use local health or care services, or have an interest in technology, we would love to hear from you.

Are you (or your partner) having a baby? The local Maternity Voices Partnership want to hear your views!

The local Maternity Voices Partnership is a parent-led group of maternity service users and their representatives working together with people who pay for and provide maternity services in your area to improve maternity care.

They want to hear your views about how information is shared about choices in pregnancy (such as where to give birth) with women and their partners. They need to know the best way to share that information so it is quick, easy and clear for mums-to-be to see.

The survey will take about 5 minutes to complete and is open until 31st May.

To complete the survey, click here.

All responses are anonymous. A summary of the anonymous data will be shared with partners working with them to improve maternity care.

Thank you for your support!

NHS Long Term Plan - What Would You Do?

People in North East Lincolnshire are being encouraged to answer a survey on how local NHS services could be improved in the region in the future.

The NHS Long Term Plan, published in January 2019, outlines how the NHS will improve patient care and health outcomes over the next 10 years. It also requires regional partnerships to develop their own five-year plans which outline what changes are required in their local area to make health and care services better for the people who use them.

The Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership’s Long Term Plan will describe how the Partnership will deliver the requirements of the NHS Long Term Plan in the Humber, Coast and Vale area - Hull and East Yorkshire, North and North East Lincolnshire, Scarborough and Ryedale and the Vale of York.

Local Healthwatch organisations – led by Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire – are undertaking a programme of engagement on the NHS Long Term Plan across the Humber, Coast and Vale area. Their #WhatWouldYouDo campaign runs until the end of April and consists of online surveys and a range of engagement events.                                                                                                               

People can share their views on how local NHS services in North East Lincolnshire can be improved in future by completing the following surveys:

Matthew Fawcett, Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire Manager, said: “We know that the NHS only works when people’s voices are heard. This is a once in a generation chance for local people to help decide where this extra money from Government should be spent in our NHS services.

“We want to hear from as many people, groups and communities as possible to ensure the local plans reflect the needs of our population. We want to hear about what works, what doesn’t and how people think local health services should be improved. No matter how big or small the issue, we want to hear about it. Sharing your experience with us is quick and easy - and could make a big difference.”
