Together We’re Better, the partnership transforming health and social care in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, is inviting local people to help shape the NHS for the next 70 years.
Health and care staff across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent have been celebrating NHS70 in a number of ways, including holding Big7Tea parties where experiences of what is good about the NHS and what needs to change have been shared.
You can still hold an event to mark this historic occasion - the NHS nationally has created packs for Big7Tea events and you can register for one of these packs via www.nhsbig7tea.co.uk.
Together We’re Better has created an online form for you to share with us what is discussed. This form can be found here. All of the ideas will be considered by our Health and Care Transformation Board and the best ones considered for implementation.
Be sure to include the hashtag #StaffsTeaParty or #StokeTeaParty to post your best ideas for the future of the NHS, as well as any photographs of your event.
Simon Whitehouse, Together We’re Better Director, said: “The 70th birthday of the NHS will kick off the next phase of engagement for Together We’re Better, as we seek ideas from local people across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent who have used local health services before. We welcome any ideas for improvement, and these tea parties are a great way to get together and discuss how we can make local health and care services fit for the next 70 years.”
