National Conversation Project 2015

 

On behalf of NHS Grampian

 

NHS Grampian is developing a Grampian Clinical Services Strategy which will be a rolling three year plan dealing with current priorities and will be part of the planning process between NHS Grampian and partner organisations. The focus will be on clinical services and the strategy will be developed to be consistent with national, north of Scotland and Integrated Joint Board strategies.

 

NHS Grampian is looking for public representatives to attend the Grampian Clinical Services Strategy Event to be held on Wednesday 9 December from 9.30am – 4.30pm at the Marriot Hotel in Dyce.

 

Public representatives will be offered a briefing session before the event. There are two dates to choose from:

 

2 – 3pm on Tuesday 24 November (Meeting Room 2, Summerfield House)

or

10 – 11am on Friday 27 November (Meeting Room 4, Summerfield House)

 

The aims of the event will be to:

 

a.    seek wider engagement, views and consensus on the proposed strategic direction and priorities for clinical services

b.    provide an opportunity to discuss key themes emerging from the national and regional clinical strategies

c.    discuss the role and key priorities for NHS Grampian in supporting the emerging Integrated Joint Boards (IJBs), regional and national strategies

d.    provide opportunities for networking

 

There will be a mix of presentations and facilitated group discussion around a range of key themes within the evolving clinical strategy. A detailed programme will be available to interested public representatives in due course.

 

To book your place at the briefing session and event, please contact the Public Involvement Team at nhsg.involve@nhs.net  or call 01224 558098.

 

Travel expenses will be reimbursed for both the briefing session and for attending the event.

On behalf of the Scottish Government and ALLIANCE

 

The Scottish Government in partnership with the ALLIANCE are running some conversation café style events in each local authority. The idea of the event is to get feedback from local people about what matters to them within health and social care. There was a pilot event in Dundee several months ago which was a great success.

 

Our local National Conversation event will be held on Monday 7th December at the Beach Ballroom, from 1pm – 4pm. Here is the link to the Eventbrite page:   https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/national-conversation-on-a-healthier-scotland-aberdeen-tickets-19183375994  to book places for yourself and as many service users as possible.  Please publicise and share around our networks.

 

The 2 questions to be asked at the event are:

  • What is needed to help you live well in the future?
  • What support do we need in Scotland to live healthier lives?

This is a great opportunity to have people’s voice heard, but also to highlight the work which has been going on in Aberdeen. The key to this will be ensuring as many people as possible can attend on the day.

 

As Eventbrite is not available to everyone, please advise all service users and anyone who you think may wish to attend that they can call or txt me on the numbers below to register their attendance.  They can also pop into the Foyer and book their place with Sasha on reception.

 

We want to make this a real opportunity for folk to have their say!

 

Hope to see you there.

Kind regards

Brenda McGinlay
