Share your views on plans for the future of health and care in Bassetlaw
Healthwatch is an independent organisation that helps people get the best from their local health and social care services. As a Healthwatch we are keen to ensure that everyone in our county is able to contribute their views and experiences to help improve health and care services.
Healthwatch are currently undertaking a piece of work on behalf of local leaders in health and care services to get your views on the Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) for South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw.
Sustainability and Transformation Plans or STPs, aim to bring health and care services closer together over the next five years and will look closely at how services can provide better care and better value.
Healthwatch are seeking views from communities in Bassetlaw to know what you think about the ideas in the Plan, what you like and don't like, and how the thinking so far might be improved.
You can contact Healthwatch Nottinghamshire on 0115 963 5179 e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.healthwatchnottinghamshire.co.uk/syb-stp

Advocacy Services are changing in Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire
The new City and County wide access to advocacy service, Your Voice, Your Choice, started on 1st April 2012. This replaces all advocacy services that have supported adults with a Physical and Sensory Impairment, a Learning Disability, a Mental Health problem, older people and people with dementia.
Your Voice, Your Choice is delivered in partnership by POhWER and Age UK Notts. There is single contact number for all advocacy services. People who contact the service will be assessed holistically to understand their needs and issues, and given appropriate and accessible information, advice and advocacy to help them resolve their issues.
The service will also provide referrals for people with complex issues and needs, providing issue based advocacy support to a wide range of service users.
Statutory advocacy services will also be available from the service, together with information about the services for professionals.
All services can be contacted by phone on 0300 020 0093 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
