Health bosses want views of Clatterbridge patients

The Healthwatch bus in Wirral

Health bosses have visited Radio Clatterbridge to ask for the views of patients in the health park.

It's part of a wider scheme to garner opinions of people across Wirral about future services in the borough.

Mike Chantler, assistant director for communications and engagement at NHS Wirral, and Karen Prior, senior manager at Healthwatch Wirral, spoke as the Healthy Wirral Roadshow rolled into town.

They explained how they want to understand what the NHS's long-term plan for the country means for the local area and why some people lead healthier lives than others.

Wirral will receive extra government funding to improve the quality of people's health in the borough.

Kate Granger's #HelloMyNameIs legacy "to continue"

The co-founder of an international campaign for compassionate care has told Radio Clatterbridge that he hopes it will continue for generations to come.

Chris Pointon came into the studio to talk about #HelloMyNameIs which he started with his late wife Dr Kate Granger.

Health bosses believe one way to achieve that is to work with the council to increase neighbourhood care.

They told Coffee Club presenters Helen Sestan and Ian Grant that they have already found that different branches of the NHS already lead to confusion.

"There's a lot of disjointed care that happens at the moment. We need to respond to that and improve that." - Mike Chantler

The Healthy Wirral Partners want areas such as housing, education and local environments are considered in their plans for the future.

And that they want ensure that people living in Wirral have their say in shaping local health and care services and talking about what the NHS means to them.
