Have your say on the new Integrated Care Strategy for Cornwall
We are working on a new plan to shape and improve health and care services for everyone in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and we need your help.
Our Integrated Care System is launching a survey that will help inform our new Integrated Care Strategy and support our vision to ensure Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is a great place to be born, live and thrive and grow old.
All Integrated Care Systems need to write a strategy that supports their vision for the future and sets out their priorities.
These priorities will focus on things that health, social care and other organisations can do to improve people’s health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities.
Through events, face-to-face workshops and online conversations, you, as people who live and work in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, have already told us about some of the key areas that concern you, from pressures on our hospitals to how the cost-of-living crisis impacts health.
Now, building on what you have told us, we are asking for your views and experiences on a wide range of areas by answering the questions in our survey.
The survey is just one part of the ongoing dialogue to ensure we meet the needs of our communities, with further engagement planned well into 2023.
NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Integrated Care System Director of Inclusion, Rachel O’Connor, said: “In order for us to shape the future of health and care in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, and make real and positive changes to people, we need to hear the views of those who use and rely on our health and care services.
“Your feedback is invaluable to shaping these services and we would like to thank you for taking the time to fill out our survey”.
The survey will run until 23:59pm on Monday 27 February 2023 and you can access it on the Let’s Talk Cornwall website here. To hear more about the events and engagement planned throughout 2023, subscribe to the Let’s Talk Cornwall website.
Patient and public voice (PPV) procurement partner
NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Integrated Care Board (NHSCIOSICB) commissions a range of health and care for the population of Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.
Commissioning is best described as a continual process of planning, agreeing, and monitoring services. It involves many different elements ranging from an assessment of the population’s health needs, to deciding and defining how best services are delivered, to going out to tender for services, to negotiating contracts and quality monitoring.
NHSCIOSICB currently has several volunteer vacancies for patient and public (PPV) procurement partners.
Our PPV procurement partners are members of a specific project team who assess tender bid responses for a service in order to award an NHS contract to the successful bidder.
The service which is currently being procured is the non-emergency transport service involving:
- non-emergency patient transport
- secure mental health transport
- high dependency transport
- car service
If you have experience of using any of the above transport services, you could be who we are looking for in terms of a PPV procurement partner.
The time commitment would be a maximum of 10 hours between mid-November 2022 and 25 January 2023. Training will be provided.
