The Big Health and Care Conversation

The Brighton and Hove “Big Health and Care Conversation” took place over the last six months of 2017 and provided a number of opportunities for patients and the public to tell us what matters to them in health and social care. 

We went out and about across the city, talking to as many different people as possible about what matters most to them in health and social care. We talked about the areas we want to improve, why we want to improve them and how you can help to ensure Brighton and Hove has the best possible services for local people in the future.

We held engagement events, and spoke with different communities, and ran a series of regular “roadshows” across the city to get the views of as many people as possible. We also ran a social media campaign and holding the “Big Health and Care Survey” that aims to gather ideas and feedback from people who we have not been able to speak with face-to-face.

The Big Health and Care Conversation built on previous feedback we have had from our patients, carers and the public, and will ensure that people’s views and experiences are heard, acted on and help shape the way health and care is planned and delivered now and in years to come.

Our local plans for health and care are part of the wider Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP).
