People keen to influence the future of the NHS in the East Riding of
Yorkshire are being encouraged to make their views known in a series of
events this month.

Independent health and care champion Healthwatch East Riding of
Yorkshire is launching ‘What would you do’ to encourage people in the
region to share their views about what changes to local NHS services
should look like.

The Government is investing £20 billion a year in the NHS as part of the
NHS Long Term Plan. Local organisations have now been asked to work out
what changes will be made locally to help make the NHS better for local
people.

The public are being asked for their views about how local services
could be improved. They will also be asked to share their ideas on how
people can live healthier lives and what improvements they think could
be made to help people access services quickly.

Matthew Fawcett, Manager of Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire, said:
�We know that the NHS only works when people’s voices are heard. This is
a once in a generation chance for local people to help decide where this
extra money from Government should be spent in our NHS services in the
East Riding.

�We want to hear from as many people, groups and communities as possible
to ensure the local plans reflect the needs of our population. We want
to hear about what works, what doesn’t and how people think local health
services should be improved. No matter how big or small the issue, we
want to hear about it. Sharing your experience with us is quick and easy
– and could make a big difference

Staff and volunteers will be at working across the region to make sure
you can have your say. Details of upcoming engagement dates can be found
on our website. People can also share their views in one of our online
surveys:

General Survey:  https://www.healthwatch.co.uk/what-would-you-do-general

Themed Survey:  https://www.healthwatch.co.uk/tell-us-what-would-you-do

Representatives from the local NHS will also be carrying out engagement
work with patients, staff and the community to encourage feedback on the
local plan.
