Invitation to Care Quality Commission Focus Group

Invitation to Care Quality Commission Focus Group

The Care Quality Commission (CQC),the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England, have started to carry out reviews of how health and social care services work together in an area to support people aged 65 and older.

Next week the CQC inspectors will come to Sheffield and they want to hear a wide range of views on how well services work together on some crucial aspects of care, such as:

  • Supporting people so they can stay well at home
  • Responding when people are in a crisis or their needs change
  • Helping people to leave hospital safely and well
  • Helping people to regain their independence after a hospital admission

At very short notice Healthwatch Sheffield have been asked to arrange a focus group of people 65+ or carers of people 65+ who have had relevant recent experiences. The focus Group will take place on Tuesday 13th February 2018 from 1.30-3pm at Moorfoot Building, Sheffield, S1 4PL.

If people want to attend the focus group or share their stories in a different way please call Healthwatch Sheffield on 0114 253 66 88, text 0741 524 9657, or email info@healthwatchsheffield.co.uk .

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
