Help us shape the future of Health and Social Care in Essex

Essex Disability and Carers Forum

My name is Roger Pope and I am a volunteer for both PACT for Autism and a volunteer forum member on the “ Collaborate Essex Disability and Carers Forum”, with Healthwatch Essex, Summit and Essex County Council.

What is this collaboration and how will it help?

Healthwatch Essex captures the lived experiences of people who use health and social care services in the county.

'Over the next 3 years, we are working with Essex County Council to deliver a new model of service improvement, representing adults with disabilities by using lived experience more effectively.

Feeding into council plans, we are developing a ‘Collaboration in Action’ Forum, which will consist of volunteers and Essex County Council staff.

We are passionate about collaboration and ensuring that citizen voices and lived experience is at the heart of everything we do.'

The forum meets on a quarterly basis and will cover different topics each month, with the next meeting in October 2020.

The main topic for the October meeting will be “Care in the community”

If you have any comments / concerns , or positive feedback on this topic, that you would like me to raise at the forum, please drop me an email.

This is your chance to help shape future services, I look forward to hearing from you
