NHS Services: Join the Greenwich Big Conversation – Thursday 22nd March

Greenwich residents are warmly invited to our Big Conversation workshops on future NHS services, and to design our clinical commissioning strategy.

We want:

  • to hear from you, our residents, about the NHS services that you use 

  • you to tell us about the NHS services that are working well, and the services that we could make better

  • to plan NHS services fit for the future together 

At the Big Conversation, we want to ask you about:

  • Urgent and emergency care services, including 111, the hospital-based urgent care centres and community services such as district nursing, health visiting, and other specialist community based services.  The current system is under increasing pressure, and we need to ensure patients get safe and effective care whenever they need it, where they need it.

  • Prevention and Living Well services, which help people manage any conditions they have in a way that puts them in control and improves their quality of life. This includes self-care, which is about avoiding becoming ill, treating common illnesses at home and seeking help when needed.

  • Primary care services, which include GP practices, dentists, optometrists and pharmacists.

  • Planned care, which is the name the NHS gives to health services and treatments that are not because of a health accident or emergency. This type of care is arranged in advance and usually follows a referral from a GP.

  • Mental health and learning disabilities, mental health has equal priority with physical health, and this means ensuring people with mental ill health, learning disability and dementia receive safe, appropriate and high quality care.  Mental health services also focus on early intervention, and achieving positive outcomes and independence for patients.

We will run two workshops on Thursday 22 March. Both workshops will cover the same agenda, please register for the time which suits you best.
