Each month Healthwatch Shropshire choose a “Hot topic”. This months is one that can be very difficult to talk about-”Death & Dying”
Whether in hospital or being supported in the home, there is only one chance for care providers to get this right. Healthwatch Shropshire would like you to share your stories with them. ie Did you feel the care your loved one received was what they wanted and expected? Was the language being used by care providers clear and appropriate? Were you given the opportunity to ask questions? If so were they answered in an appropriate way?
Healthwatch Shropshire are keen to build up a picture of how well “End of Life Care in Shropshire” is working. & whether or not people feel supported,
If you have any comments for Healthwatch about this topic please contact them on 01743 237884 or [email protected] You can also leave feedback in many Shropshire libraries where you will find “Tell Us” leaflets which you can complete & post in the boxes provided.
Throughout October NHS Future Fit will have pop up stands at various places throughout Shropshire. This will give you an opportunity to ask questions, pick up information & discover how patients & members of the public can play a part in the programme, with a consultation due to start towards the end of the year.
With much in the media about possible changes to services at both the Princess Royal Hospital & Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, it is important that people take these opportunities to ask questions.
Dr Julian Povey, Chairman of Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group said:
“We want people to be as well informed as possible about the programme. We want everyone to understand the positive advantages that NHS Future Fit can provide with the creation of a new Emergency Department and two Urgent Care Centres, each able to see up to 80 per cent of those who currently go to A&E, in Telford and Shrewsbury.”
