Health and Social Care for the elderly – does it work?

Elderly Sheffield people and their carers are being invited to a focus group to share their opinions about how well health and social care is working for them.

The event, staged by Healthwatch Sheffield and the Care Quality Commission, will take place on Tuesday, February 13, from 1.30-3pm at the Moorfoot Building, S1 4PL.

The Care Quality Commission wants to hear a range of views on how well services work together in Sheffield to:

   * Support people so they can stay well at home

   * Respond when people are in a crisis or their needs change

   * Help people to leave hospital safely and well

   * Help people to regain their independence after a hospital admission

If you want to be part of the focus group – or perhaps you want to share your story in a different way – please call them on 0114 253 6688 or text 07415 249657 or email
