Rural North Chichester integrated health hub

Following on from two public meetings to update and involve local people on proposals for an Integrated Health Hub (the most recent taking place on 8 October 2019), Healthwatch West Sussex have been supporting some wider independent, engagement at a series of events during October 2019.

The engagement was centred on six key questions:

  1. What do you believe the services in the Integrated Health Hub will provide?
  2. What kind of services would you like to see being part of the Integrated Health Hub – NHS, Social care, Community Services, other?
  3. What support from the Integrated Health Hub would help you and your family stay as healthy and independent as possible?
  4. We have been told by residents that local transport is an issue. What are the main issues for you? What could make it easier for you to get the most from this community facility?
  5. As the Integrated Health Hub will have a wide range of information what types of information would you like to see available there?
  6. Do you have any other comments/concerns?

Healthwatch spoke to over 200 people and captured many experiences and stories which can be found in the full report.

Dr Emma Woodcock Clinical Director for Rural North Chichester Primary Care Network was filmed explaining the vision of how the hub will improve services for residents.
