Local community services will be changing in Torquay, Paignton and Brixham
Help us plan how…
The Torbay series of public meetings about community services has been finalised.
Local GPs, Devon County Council, Torbay Council, Torbay and Southern Devon Health and Care Trust, district councils and local community groups are working with South Devon and Torbay Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to organise a number of high-profile public events aimed at understanding what community services the public need.
Among the topics for discussion are GP services, community nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social care services such as night sitters, home carers and personal care, community hospitals and services for carers.
The feedback we receive at these events will help us produce a strategy for the future of community services. It will be a strategy that is well-informed, benefitting from the views of the organisations we work with and of people who use health and social care services. That’s why we are asking you what you think.
The engagement events will be held in each of the CCG’s five localities – Moor to Sea, Coastal, Newton Abbot, Torquay, and Paignton & Brixham – so that a clear plan for improving health and social care services can be drawn up over the next five years.
Why are we asking you to give your opinions now?
People are living longer, which is a good thing. It also means that in the years ahead, we will have increasing numbers of older people dependent on care for longer. Growing numbers of people will, also, have several long-term illnesses and increasingly complex needs.
The budget for health and social care is not going to increase but demand on our services will be rising sharply. The gap between people’s needs and the money available is getting wider. So we will have to do things differently. We need bold ideas. We know we can do more to prevent ill health, and people can take more responsibility and control of their own care. We need to make the best and most efficient use of all our resources and make sure our community services are used to best meet people’s needs.
This engagement will be in the Torbay localities – for people living in Torquay, Paignton, Brixham and surrounding areas – from 4 November.
There will be three public events, with no booking of places required:
Torquay: Tuesday 19 November 6pm-8pm, Upton Vale Baptist Church Hall, St Marychurch Road, Torquay, TQ1 3HY
Paignton: Tuesday 26 November 2.30pm-4.30pm, Christ Church Hall, Torquay Road, Paignton, TQ3 2SG
Brixham: Thursday 5 December 2pm-4pm, Scala Hall, Bolton Cross, Brixham, TQ5 8TA
