Cardiff and Vale University Health Board’s proposals for improving care for frail older people in the Vale of Glamorgan

 

We would like to hear your views on proposals to improve care for frail older people in the Vale of Glamorgan.

In line with the plans set out in our Shaping Our Future Wellbeing Strategy, we have invested significantly in primary and community services to increase the support available to keep people living well at home. We know that the number of older people in our population will continue to grow and our models of care have to adapt to meet these changing and growing needs.

This engagement focuses on proposals for improving the care for frail older people in the Vale of Glamorgan when they come into hospital. When they no longer need to be in hospital, we want them to be able to leave with appropriate support in place more quickly, in order to give them the best chance of continued independence and dignity in their own home or in a community setting.

Please go to the UHB website to read the Engagement Document, Frequently Asked Questions and Equality and Health Impact Assessment, and tell us what you think.

We will also be holding a public workshop on Monday 23rd September 1.00 – 3.30pm in the Glamorgan Suite at the Barry Memo Arts Centre, Gladstone Road, Barry, CF62 8NA.  This will be an opportunity to learn more about the proposals and discuss your views with clinicians. The workshop will start with a presentation at 1.00pm followed by table discussions on different aspects of the proposals. It will finish at 3.30pm.

 

The closing date for responses is Friday 1 November 2019
