Speak up and help improve

 health and social care services in Lincolnshire

Healthwatch Lincolnshire is calling on more people to share their views about health and social care as part of their campaign #SpeakUp2020.

Last year more than 2000 people spoke directly to Healthwatch Lincolnshire about their experiences of health and care services. This feedback has been used to identify the most important issues in Lincolnshire. Healthwatch is currently working on areas such as Stroke and Personal Health Budgets as well as listening to communities that don’t typically speak out.

We want to hear more from patients and service users who are experiencing long waiting times for specialist appointments, those accessing social care and home care as well as your regular visits to GP’s, Pharmacies, Dentists and hospital services.

To find out more, Healthwatch Lincolnshire has today launched #SpeakUp2020, a campaign calling on people to share the changes they want to see to their local health and care services. 

By taking five minutes to speak up, people in Lincolnshire can improve care for themselves, their loved ones, and their community. It’s that simple.

Sarah Fletcher Chief Executive of Healthwatch Lincolnshire, said:

“Peoples experiences are some of the most important learning we all have. Healthwatch Lincolnshire welcome all feedback good or bad everything you tell us is confidential so you have nothing to lose”

Healthwatch England, the national champion for health and social care, has today also revealed the top issues people across the country are talking to Healthwatch about.

As well as a greater focus on peer support, people want the NHS and social care to better understand what children and young people want and need from health services.

Mental health and social care have also been identified as top priorities for the fourth year in a row.
