Neurology is a Hot Topic for September/October.

Have you been affected by changes to Neurological services in Shropshire?

Neurological services in Shropshire are under serious pressure. The service provided by Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust (SaTH) was closed to all new referrals at the end of March 2017 for 6 months due to staffing gaps. The local Clinical Commissioning Groups and SaTH have been working with out of county hospitals to provide alternative capacity during this period.

During September and October Healthwatch Shropshire is focusing its “hot topic” on neurology and is seeking feedback from people to understand how these changes have affected patients and their experience of treatment. Neurology includes the treatment of a wide range of conditions including brain injury, Parkinson’s, Motor Neurone Disease, Epilepsy and Multiple Sclerosis.

Jane Randall-Smith, Chief Officer of Healthwatch Shropshire, said: “The fragility of neurological services in Shropshire has been recognised recently and we would like to understand how this is affecting the patient experience including how people are getting to their appointments. Healthwatch Shropshire would like to hear positive and negative feedback which we can then feed into the discussion around the service provision so that we can ensure the patient voice is heard.”

People can let Healthwatch Shropshire know what they think about local services by phone 01743 237884, by email [email protected] or online www.healthwatchshropshire.co.uk. The more comments received the more influence Healthwatch Shropshire has to improve services for local people.

Healthwatch Shropshire is the independent consumer champion for health and social care in Shropshire. It gathers the views and experiences of patients, service users, carers, and the general public about services including hospitals, GPs, mental health services, community health services, pharmacists, opticians, residential care and children’s services.  It also has statutory powers that it can use to influence service provision by encouraging improvements.
