East Sussex collaborative health and wellbeing stakeholder group
There are a number of ways local people and stakeholders can stay up to date and share their views on what’s happening in health and care in the East Sussex and a recent addition to the range of opportunities is the East Sussex Collaborative Health and Wellbeing Stakeholder group.
This group brings together community representatives, such as members of local voluntary organisations, four times per year to help plan health and care in East Sussex. Their valuable insight helps ensure local people’s views and experiences shape services, and keep local people at the centre of what we do.
Recent meetings have covered topics such as; integrating community services to reduce hospital admissions and support discharge, the draft Bedded Care and Accommodation Strategy, finding creative community responses to the changing health and care landscape and development of the ESBT Primary Care Strategy.
The publicly available forward plan forward plan details all the areas identified as important priorities for the group, and topics have recently been set for the upcoming July and October meetings.
However, not only those attending the group can share their views – you can too.
The group is encouraging local people and stakeholders to share their top health and care priorities and comment on identified priorities by contacting StakeholderGroup@eastsussex.gov.uk. You can also get in touch to sign up to the Stakeholder Group mailing list for regular email updates.
