Let's Talk about Ageing Well
A social gathering with focus on mental health and wellbeing for City and Hackney residents aged 65+ took place at The Pembury Centre in July 2019. Attendees were able to take part in workshops, try out yoga, have a massage, play bingo and enjoy a healthy lunch. People were also able to find out about support services that are available to them and visit the Graffiti Wall to share their views about what works well in the local area, what could be improved and what kind of language we should be using when talking about mental health.
For more information please read the event summary, which will be updated with commissioners' responses to how they plan to take people's feedback forward, in due course.
NHS Long Term Plan
Between October 2018 and September 2019 City and Hackney residents are able to have their say on future of health and care services in the area. A number of events, surveys and focus groups have been taking place to gather people's views on what the NHS Long Term Plan should look like locally. A collated report of findings will be published here in September. In the meantime you can click on the links below to read more about what we've learnt so far:
Let's Talk about Stroke Services
In February 2019, the CCG held a community engagement event on local stroke support services. The event was attended by over 70 City and Hackney residents who were either patients or carers. The ‘Let’s Talk’ workshop explored residents’ experiences of stroke services, received at home or in the community, through a series of discussion workshops.
We have produced what is intended to be an accessible, stroke-friendly summary of the workshop findings, which can be viewed here:
Commissioning Intentions 2019/20 Roadshow
During October 2018-December 2018 a series of events took place to speak to City and Hackney residents about the CCG's plans for 2019/20 and beyond. Six events held at different locations across City and Hackney were attended by over 200 people. They included a mix of focused discussions on specific local health needs as well as more general feedback sessions on the broader plans.
You can read the full event report here. The documents below outline how what people told us at these events has shaped local plans.
Review of practice based Patient Participation Groups
During 2018 the CCG commissioned the City and Hackney GP Confederation to carry out a review of what’s working and not working in practice based Patient Participation Groups (PPGs). The findings are collated in a report, which has been shared with the GP Confederation, Primary Care Work Stream and the CCG's Patient and Public Involvement Committee, who are working together to determine the next steps. The report is available below.

The full report by Hackney Refugee Forum as well as a summary report including the response from Planned Care Workstream are included below.
