Community conversations to help shape the future of health and care services

Page contents

Look out for us out and about in your communities this summer! As we look to have over 1000 conversations with local people about how we can make Cornwall and Isles of Scilly a healthier place to be born, to live and grow old.

It’s part of our ‘Community Conversations’ engagement programme to reach as many people as possible, with a particular focus on speaking to people facing the most health inequalities.

How to take part

Or look out for us attending a community group or event near you!

What will the feedback be used for?

The findings from the chats and online survey will be used to shape the final version of Integrated Care System’s 10-year strategy. This sets out how partners from the Integrated Care system will work together to plan, deliver and improve local health and care services.

Our Community Conversation plan

Staff and volunteers have already visited the Isles of Scilly (with a return visit planned for later in the year), joined local events, including Pride and the Royal Cornwall Show.

Conversations are underway with visits to over 20 health settings, including GP surgeries, community hospitals and mental health facilities

Visits to toddler, family and youth groups, support groups and specialist events to hear from people with hearing loss and lived experiences of complex medical conditions.

The team will join Cornwall Council’s rural mobile library and many other groups.
