Helping Hands - Reaching out and touching on peoples experiences of the NHS.
Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire (HWERY), the independent watchdog for health and social care services in the East Riding, was out engaging people at Driffield Show finding out how local health and social care services have helped the public.
We often hear some negative stories about health and social care but Healthwatch wanted to do something different and reached out to the residents of the East Riding to find some of the positives local people felt about their care.
HWERY wanted to do something unique and engaging with the public. As a result of the engagement Healthwatch have created four art installations which highlight some of the local population’s comments on. We are now asking for any services to make themselves known if they would like one of these pieces to display in their own venue.
Delivery Manager at HWERY, Matthew Fawcett, said:
“This is a fun opportunity for people to tell us what they liked in their local NHS. The views that people shared with us shows how good local services are and this enables us to shine a light on the good work happening locally.
“What we are looking for now is if any local health provider would like to display these pieces of art, to show the support and positive thoughts of the public. If any service is interested please get in touch with ourselves”
If anyone would like to their experiences of local health or social care they can contact us on 01482 665 684 or email. firstname.lastname@example.org
