2. How can we improve community equipment services?
B&NES Council and CCG are carrying out a review to see how we can improve community equipment and minor adaptation services and we need to know what you think.
Community equipment includes things like special mattresses, beds and cushions, hoists and slings, and walking frames. Minor adaptations include things like rails either inside or outside your home, and ramps.
If you use/have used these services, or support or care for someone who uses/has used these services, please fill in this online or paper survey to share your views and experiences.
If you provide these services, please fill in this online or paper survey to share your views.
The closing date for feedback is Friday 11th January 2019. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Our proposal to improve home care services
B&NES Council and CCG are looking at how we provide home care services and how we can make them better. During the summer 2018, we asked people to help us come up with a proposal for what services should look like in future. We are now consulting on this proposal to check we have got things right.
To share your views, please read our consultation document and fill in our survey, which is available both online and in paper form.
The deadline for feedback is Friday 1 February 2019.
Find out more about the home care services review here.
4. Proposed relocation of pain services
The RUH is proposing to relocate pain services currently provided at the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases (RNHRD) to the RUH site in summer 2019.
The RNHRD in Bath provides national, specialised services for people with chronic pain, where pain is persistent, disabling and not adequately helped by other treatments.
The RUH is seeking views from patients, carers, healthcare partners and anyone who has an interest in these services to help their planning, to ensure that they continue to provide the best services for current and future patients.
You can find out more here and have your say by filling in their survey or emailing them at email@example.com.
Please share your feedback with them by Thursday 20 December 2018.
