Healthwatch Wiltshire calls on public to help set priorities

Health and social care champion Healthwatch Wiltshire is calling on local people to tell them what they think the organisation should be working on in the coming year.

Each year Healthwatch Wiltshire decides on key projects, based on public feedback, and is now asking local people to help plan what they feel it should be focusing on in the next twelve months.

Six potential projects have been shortlisted  for 2024/25:

  • The wellbeing of children and young people
  • Pharmacy
  • Care at home
  • Accessibility of health services
  • How the cost of living is affecting our health
  • The impact of living in a rural county

The organisation now wants to check these with the public by asking them to complete a short survey

You can also pass on your views by calling Healthwatch Wiltshire on 01179 654444, or by catching up with Healthwatch team members at local events over the next few weeks, where paper copies of the survey will be available. 

You can visit their Events page to find out where they will heading. 

Stacey Sims, Healthwatch Wiltshire Manager, said: 

”Our work for the year ahead will be driven by what the people of Wiltshire tell us is important to them. We want to make sure that the public continues to play a key role in helping to shape the health and care system, both now and in the future.” 

The survey is open until 5 pm on Wednesday 20 March. Complete the survey
