In an effort to improve these services, CCG’s and North Yorkshire County Council have appealed to local health and social care equipment users for feedback and opinions on their experience with the current support that is being provided.
The health and social care equipment provided consist mainly of aids to help with mobility and communication for both adults and children, which help them to live independently at home. Examples of these aids are wheelchairs, shower chairs, perching stools, kettle tippers, pressure relieving mattresses, etc.
There are drop-in sessions due to take place in December 2015 and January 2016 across North Yorkshire. These sessions have been created to provide opportunity for local service users to drop-in and share their views. There is no need to book, just come along.
For people who are unable to attend the drop-in sessions, there is also an online survey available so that they can still share their views.
