Latest updates from NHS Sussex – Let’s Talk about: Health and Care, Sussex Wound Care and Measles Prevention and Symptoms
Share your views on health and care services in Sussex
As we mark the one year anniversary of the publication of our health and care strategy for Sussex – Improving Lives Together – we are keen to hear from local people about how services are working and where further improvements are needed.
Please share your views through this survey on your experiences of current services, what is working well and where further improvements could be made.
There is also a spotlight in this survey on the sharing and use of information about your health and wellbeing within the NHS to help inform our work.
The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and each response will be reviewed and analysed. https://yoursaysussexhealthandcare.uk.engagementhq.com/let-s-talk-about-your-experiences-of-health-and-care-in-sussex-2024
NHS Sussex has run this survey twice over the last twelve months and this year’s feedback will be analysed alongside those results. To view our published reports please visit How insight has led to change – How insight has led to change – Sussex Health & Care (ics.nhs.uk)
Share your views on Sussex Wound Care
The wound care programme in Sussex seeks to change how lower limb wounds are cared for in the community.
The new proposed way of providing the service will help people’s wounds – especially leg wounds – heal more quickly than under existing services. This work has also taken account of how the service is run at the moment, and will improve the process, make the service consistent, and improve patient outcomes. It will also reduce the number of times patients need to be seen, freeing up valuable time for staff and services.
We would like to hear from people who have used NHS services for wound care, and those who have cared for someone who has needed care for a wound. We would also like to hear from people who may be impacted by any changes proposed such as those living in rural areas, people from areas of deprivation, older people and minority ethnic communities.
There are a range of ways to get involved including through a short survey: Sussex NHS services supporting wound care | Sussex Health and Care Your Say (engagementhq.com) or a 2 hour online workshop in early March – please email Antonia.email@example.com for more information.
Measles rates are increasing locally and nationally
Please see the attached toolkit to support increasing knowledge around measles symptoms and reminders to ensure vaccinations are up to date. Please can you share widely with membership, forums, groups, family, and friends.
Thank you for all of your support in sharing and taking part to help us improve NHS services.
