Vision 2018: Survey set to help transform the NHS and Social Care

Vision 2018: Survey set to help transform the NHS and Social Care




NHS Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group and Wirral Council are urging all Wirral residents to get involved in Vision 2018, and have their say on how health and social care services will look over the next few years.


An initial public engagement event was positive with insights already informing future plans; a Wirral resident who attended said the event was an 'Excellent idea - democracy in action. Very good to involve the community. It needs to be on-going'.


Health and social care services face a huge challenge as demand is increasing and funding is reduced. The short on-line survey will enable people to share their own experiences and contribute to plans re-shape services to address the financial challenges whilst ensuring the highest standards of patient care.


Vision 2018 will transform Integrated Care, Primary Care and Hospital Care.


Integrated Care will see health and social care professionals working together, helping people to plan their own care and take more responsibility for looking after their health. The vision is that people will have one key contact, who co-ordinates their GP, hospital, community and social care.


The vision for primary care is about expanding health services in local communities such as provision of GP, social care and other community based services seven days a week, more services available at GP practices, care closer to home - less reasons to go hospital and having more involvement in determining the local services you need.

The vision for hospital care is to work with primary care to provide health and care services. For example some traditionally hospital-based services could be available in the community, having consultant led teams in the community, having fewer trips to outpatient departments or shorter stays in hospital, having a quicker response to urgent care needs in the community.


The survey is available online at


The survey closes Friday 28 March.
