HealthWatch - What would you do - Survey

Healthwatch East Sussex, along with the Healthwatch in West Sussex, Brighton and Surrey are launching a series of activities to encourage people to have their say about the future of the NHS in our area. Healthwatch is the independent health and care champion. Through What would you do? they will seek to reach as many people, groups, and communities as possible to get feedback on how local NHS services should change.
The Government is investing £20 billion a year in the NHS as part of the NHS Long Term Plan. Local organisations have now been asked to work together, to develop their own plans, which will set out how the national plan will work across local areas.
The public are being asked for their views about how health and care services could be improved. They will also be asked to share their ideas on how people can live healthier lives and what improvements they think could be made to help people access services quickly. For more information and to complete the survey click on the link. The deadline for completion of the survey is 30th April 2019.

Now that the better weather has arrived gypsie and traveller activity will be on the increase.So, how should you handle traveller movements and deal with unauthorised encampments. The responsibility for taking enforcement action lies primarily with the owner of the land concerned and landowners are expected to take reasonable precautions to prevent encampments. In the first instance you need to identify whose land is being occupied so it is best to report your observations to Arun District Council so that the landowner can be identified and advised accordingly (NB.Gypsies and travellers seen at the side of the road or parked on the edge of the road are probably on West Sussex County Council land and you should advise the County Council accordingly). See the link to the District Council's website for more detailed information and see the full story for the relevant contact details.
