Shropshire Council 250-253

Prevention services survey

Start Date:
18th May 2018

End Date:
1st July 2018

Start Time:
00.01

End Time:
23.59

The voluntary and community sector (VCS) plays a vital role in enabling vulnerable people to keep their independence, keep well and participate in activities to retain their quality of life, have respect and feel valued. The VCS delivers many ‘preventative’ services which could be anything that you use, visit, look up/google, read, attend and so on, that help you or the person you support to stay healthy, safe and independent, and therefore not need more ‘formal’ support and care services.

Preventative services could involve:

  • Provision of information and advice
  • Practical support in the home
  • Assistance with welfare benefits
  • ‘Good neighbour’ schemes
  • More specialist input, for example support for people with autism, sight loss or at risk of homelessness

Shropshire Council Adult Services team is currently working with over 30 VCS and housing organisations, some of which are funded by us, others not, to plan how preventative services will look in future. We’re also planning to seek the views of people who use, or may use, preventative services and those of their carers.

The aim of this review is to make sure we’re commissioning the right outcomes for the right people, which will make the biggest difference to individuals (and to council and health budgets).

About this survey

This short survey is being carried out by a group of organisations and activists that have been meeting for past two years to think about how to move the independent living agenda forwards. You can read more about us here http://www.in-control.org.uk/blog/losing-control.aspx

They want to know about the experiences of people who access support from their local councils and find out how they are charging for care and support and how this effects people who use support. To help us understand these issues we would be extremely grateful if you could spare a few moments to complete this short survey to share your own experiences.

The Patient Survey is now open for local people to help plan longer opening hours for GP practices by Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).

The survey opened on Monday, 30 April, and closes on Friday, 25 May at 5 pm. It is open to all patients over 16 registered at a practice listed with Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin CCGs.

Dr Stephen James, Clinical Director for Primary Care speaking on behalf of both Shropshire CCG and Telford and Wrekin CCG in this joint project, urged people to complete a survey.

He said: “It will really help us shape the service if people can just spare a few minutes to complete the survey. This will help us find out the level of interest in the service and how people would like to use it.

“In particular, the patient survey is looking at people’s preferred days and times for appointment over the evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays.”

Public realm enhancements are proposed at Murivance, St Chad’s Terrace, and Claremont Bank as part of the Shrewsbury Integrated Transport Package (SITP). These enhancements aim to create a pedestrian-friendly town centre environment, deter unnecessary cross-town vehicle movements, improve infrastructure for local residents, and improve the experience for people visiting Shrewsbury.

The improvement schemes include widened and repaved footways, a traffic lane reduction at Claremont Bank, new and/or improved pedestrian crossing points, carriageway resurfacing incorporating buff-coloured surface treatment at junction areas, and raised tables at St Chad’s Terrace and Claremont Bank. New loading bays are proposed at Murivance and Claremont Bank to facilitate deliveries to local residents and businesses.

Also included in the proposals is the removal of the existing ‘No Motor Vehicles’ restriction at the St John’s Hill and Cross Hill junction, towards Bellstone. The removal of this restriction is proposed to improve access in and out of the town for local residents.
