The government is investing an extra £20bn a year in the NHS. With growing pressure on the NHS – an ageing population, more people living with long-term conditions, and lifestyle choices affecting people’s health – changes are needed to make sure everybody gets the support they need. The Long Term Plan sets out what the NHS wants to do better, including making it easier for people to access support closer to home and via technology, doing more to help people stay well, and providing better support for people with cancer, mental health conditions, heart and lung diseases, long term conditions, such as diabetes and arthritis, learning disabilities and autism, and for people as they get older and experience conditions such as Dementia. Now your local NHS wants to hear from you about what those changes should look like in your community. Healthwatch Milton Keynes has launched ‘What Would you do?’ to gather feedback from the public on ways to improve local NHS services. You can help your local NHS invest in the right support by sharing your ideas with us.
