Our key issues of focus for 2019-20 

This year we are championing three topics that people told us were most important to focus on.

1. Mental health
2. Co-ordination between services (especially for older or vulnerable adults)
3. Access to information about services and help to stay well and manage one's own health.

Share your experiences of these or any other health and social care issues.

Have your say on recovery, rehabilitation and re-ablement services

We want to hear from you if, in the last two years, you have had a health or care service that has helped you with recovery, rehabilitation and re-ablement for physical, mental and social care needs.

These types of services can be provided in different setting including hospitals, care homes or at a persons home.  This can include support from doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and more.

You can take part confidentially but we will use the information to help decision makers understand how such services can be improved and as they consider new ways of working together.

Other local opportunities to get involved and have your say

Around Wandsworth there are lots of other opportunities to have your say directly with health and social care services. In fact, most publically funded services have a duty to listen to what you say and involve you.

We try to encourage them to do this and to do this better. See a list of regular places to have your say below.
