From July 2017 until Autumn 2018, Brighton and Hove residents helped to shape health and social care for the city by sharing their feedback, and experiences on local services in the Big Health and Care Conversation. The first phase was held from July 2017 – December 2017, with a second phase over 2018.
We spoke to members of the public, patients, voluntary sector organisations, partners and colleagues at a range of engagement events over this period of time, and also heard from people via an online survey.
Over the year 2018/19, we experienced an unprecedented level of financial challenge; therefore, we expected our conversations to be challenging, as we focused on ensuring that we make the best use of limited money and make some difficult choices about how we spend this money to best support the health and wellbeing of our population.
Conversations were guided by “Talking Points”, chosen according to previous feedback.
- Planned Care
- Mental Health
- Primary Care
- Social Prescribing and Prevention
- Urgent Care
