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 have spoken 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. We have already produced a report summarizing feedback from phase 1 of the Big Health and Care Conversation (July – December 2018) which you can find in the table below. We have continued to have conversations with our patients, carers and the public since this time.
This report summarises key points from our conversations, including where we have taken action, which builds on our earlier report.
Over the year 2018/19, we have 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
We promised to share the feedback we heard and how that feedback has already started to influence planning and shape improved services for the future. You can find the Big Health and Care Conversation Final Report in the table below.

The Big Health and Care Conversation is a way for the commissioners of local health services to hear local people's opinions about health and care services, whilst keeping communities updated about local plans and priorities.

- Hospital services
- GP services
- Prescription services and using medication
- How partners in local health and care services are working together
- Mental health care and well being services
- Anything else related to health and social care locally
Whilst we cannot commit to responding personally to each submission, your comments will be read and considered in relation to the commissioning plans and priorities for Brighton and Hove CCG and, where required, your comments will be shared with our partner services.
