When planning or buying local health services, we must take the views of local people, patients and carers, as well as the people who represent them into account. Each year, we run a number of engagement activities designed to encourage local people to have their say about future health services. You’ll find more details about current and past engagement activities below:
Current engagement activities
NHS North Kirklees and NHS Greater Huddersfield Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are working jointly with Kirklees Council to improve intermediate care services in Kirklees. Intermediate care services provide anyone aged 18 or over with personal care and help with daily activities and other practical tasks for a short period of time, usually for up to six weeks. The services are provided by a team of health and social care professionals such as nurses, care staff and therapists.
To help develop local intermediate care and move it forward, the CCGs and the council are asking patients across Kirklees what they think about the service and how it can be made even better. The survey is available online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/KirkleesIntermediateCare
The final day for completion of the surveys is 3 September 2018.
