Are you living in Rutland with a long-term condition or frailty and need ongoing health and care support to live well in the community? The long-term condition could be for instance (but not limited to) dementia, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, Learning disabilities, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, stroke, spinal injury, cardiovascular disease, mental ill-health.
If so, Healthwatch Rutland wants to hear about your experiences. We are working in partnership with the Better Care Fund to find out what health and social care services work well for you? What other help and support, perhaps from community/voluntary organisations or support groups, help you to stay independent and well? What additional support do you think is needed? Which services could be improved?
Healthwatch Rutland Chair Jennifer Fenelon said:
“People living in the community with long-term conditions often have ongoing and complex needs. Healthwatch Rutland is working with the Better Care Fund partnership to understand what is working well and what could be improved in the provision and delivery of health care and support for this group of people in Rutland.”
All information will be confidential and anonymous.

The project will be collecting information from the public until mid-February 2018. If you would like to take part in this study, please contact us as soon as possible:
