As you may know, Healthwatch are conducting engagement around the NHS Long Term Plan. It would be great if you could share this with your internal and external networks, and help us to promote online and on social media.


We are launching a series of activities to encourage the people of Cheshire to have their say about the future of the NHS in our area and we need your help to get as many surveys completed by the end of April.



Healthwatch Cheshire East and Healthwatch Cheshire West are Cheshire’s independent health and care champions. Through ‘What would you do?’ we will seek to reach as many people, groups, and communities as possible to get feedback on local NHS services should change.



The Government is investing £20 billion a year in the NHS as part of the NHS Long Term Plan. Local organisations have now been asked to work together to develop their own plans, which will set out how the national plan will work across local areas.


The public are being asked for their views about how services could be improved. They will also be asked to share their ideas on how people can live healthier lives and what improvements they think could be made to help people access services quickly.

It’s easy to get involved. Share your experiences and support by using the hashtag #WhatWouldYouDo
