NHS 10 Year Plan - Healthwatch Oldham want your views
03 April 2019

Healthwatch Oldham is asking Oldham residents and health staff to complete the latest Healthwatch England Survey, to help inform plans for local NHS services.

As part of the NHS 10 Year Plan, the Government is investing an extra £20 billion a year into the NHS. The NHS Plan sets out all the things it wants health services to do better for people across the country and is based on the experiences of patients, families and staff.

With growing pressure on the NHS – people living longer, more people living with long-term conditions, and lifestyle choices affecting people’s health – changes are needed to make sure everybody gets the support they need.

Local NHS services have been asked to set out how the NHS Plan will be delivered in Oldham and detail how services will change. We need your help to make sure that any new investment goes into the right services.

You can help Healthwatch Oldham by completing either the quick general survey or one of the specific long-term condition surveys produced by Healthwatch England on the links provided below:

General Survey:


Cardio and respiratory services:


People with learning disabilities:


People with autism:


People with mental health conditions:


Cancer patients:


People with dementia:


The deadline for completion of the survey is 26 April 2019.

What you tell Healthwatch will not affect any care you are receiving at the moment – it will only be used to influence future services. They will anonymise responses as much as possible so that individual people cannot be identified. Their full data protection policies are available on their website at: www.healthwatcholdham.co.uk
