NHS North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is looking at how it can improve the health services that older people receive in care homes. In particular we are thinking about:
- Providing all care home residents with regular health and wellbeing reviews and assessments
- Using technology such as video calls to allow care homes and their residents to get quick and easy access to urgent advice and support from health professionals (Telehealth)
- Identifying one GP practice to support all the residents in a particular care home.
We would like to hear your views about these ideas and have asked Healthwatch Kirklees to help us. We are particularly interested in hearing from anyone with experience of local services including residents and their carers, relatives and friends and care home staff.
We will use your views, experiences and thoughts to help us shape our services for the future.
