The CCG has longstanding relationships with a wide range of community, voluntary sector and local authority organisations. These partnerships have been more important than ever during the pandemic as we collectively rethink our ways of working in response to the impact of COVID-19.
Throughout 2019 and 2020 a wide range of work has taken place across local organisations to understand their views alongside feedback from local people and communities offering a range of perspectives. This has included, but is not limited to, the following examples that provide some context:
Our intention is that the Frimley Health and Care system Five Year Strategy is ambitious for our population and those who work within it The strategy was developed through high levels of engagement , reflects local needs, issues and priorities, is rooted in evidence and aims to tackle wider determinants of health and wellbeing. - Its development has been based on what people have told us, alongside good data and intelligence. The strategy is available here.
On 21 January 2020 Rushmoor Borough Council and North East Hampshire and Farnham CCG held a joint event inviting local people to join a new conversation about health and wellbeing. The aim of the event was to improve our understanding of what was most important for the people living in Aldershot and Farnborough (Rushmoor), in order to help plan and prioritise work for the future.
Phase One survey and insights work
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all and caused many organisations to change the way they are working. One challenge for us has been how we continue to carry out the high standards of local engagement activity we would normally be working towards, whilst prioritising the health, safety and welfare of everyone. We have adopted a phased approach, recognising the constant need to adapt and evolve to an ever changing situation. Phase One (April – September 2020) involved three distinct pieces of work alongside a range of on-going engagement and communication activity. You can find out more about this work here.
