Get involved in your health care

Working with local people to design the services you and your family use has always been important to us, but the pandemic has changed everything. More people have more needs than ever before and we have an opportunity to look at the services that we provide in Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes to make sure they meet the needs of you, your family and your community.

During the pandemic we changed how we work with local people and communities. NHS organisations joined up with local councils, the Police, Fire Service, Healthwatch and the voluntary sector to reach into communities so that we could share advice and guidance and keep people safe. We want to build on that approach and strengthen relationships further, so that we can give everyone who lives in our area a voice and the opportunity to design health and care services for their communities.

To do this however and embed this into how we work, we need to review our approach and that’s where you come in. We’d welcome your thoughts on how we access communities and embed change into NHS organisations.

We’ve provided a case for change discussion document, and a feedback form so we can capture your views.

Please provide your feedback before midnight Monday, 2nd May 2022.
