Our health and social care services face some big challenges. People are living longer, our population is getting older and the type of care that people need is changing. Our health and social care services therefore need to change too.
The NHS, Norfolk County Council and partners in health and social care have come together across Norfolk and Waveney (North Suffolk) to find a better way forward.
Partners are developing an important programme to transform health and social care over the next five years called the Norfolk and Waveney Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP).
Healthwatch Norfolk (HWN) has received numerous enquiries in relation to the development and implementation of the plan and the HWN Board are concerned that there has been no real opportunity for the general public to participate in the ongoing process.
Therefore, the Board of Healthwatch Norfolk have decided to host a “Question Time” type discussion on Monday 17th July between 6.00- 8.00pm at Blackfriars Hall in Norwich.
