Supporting people with learning difficulties in primary care
We wanted to know what people with learning difficulties felt about their experiences of primary care services. We commissioned our friends at Barnet Mencap to create a video where people could have their say and also be able to offer some advice to professionals working in primary care. This is just the short version. A longer version is also available. Please let us know if you would like to use this in your work.
Homecare services in Barnet - have your say
Healthwatch Barnet is the local statutory body set up to bring views of patients, services users and carers into the heart of decision-making in Health and Social Care.
Healthwatch Barnet is interested in hearing what people think about Home Care (also known as Domiciliary Care) in the London Borough of Barnet.
As part of our Enter and View programme, we visited Magnolia Court Care Home in September. The announced visit was part of a planned strategy to ensure that the quality of care in health and social care providers in Barnet is of sufficient quality. Our team of trained volunteers visited the service at Magnolia Court and recorded their observations. They also spoke to and surveyed both residents of the care home and their relatives. A full report was then produced which was sent to the care home, the London Borough of Barnet and the Care Quality Commission.
We are always trying to improve the service that we provide to the residents of Barnet. Part of that improvement process is finding out what people across the Borough. We have set up a survey to find out what you think of the work we have done. Do you think we have had an impact? Do you think we have had any influence? What do you think we should do more of? What do you think we should do less of? All views count and we would be delighted if you could spend ten minutes of your time to fill in our survey.
