Caring Together went to market!

26th August 2016

Caring Together went to market when it took part in Macclesfield’s popular Treacle Market last month (July).

A number of staff from across local care services manned an information stall and asked shoppers to put tokens in clear plastic bottles to indicate the most important considerations for health leaders to bear in mind when improving services. People had their say on the following criteria:

  • Staff experience
  • Service user experience
  • Safety
  • Care outcomes
  • Travel time and distance
  • Quality
  • National standards
  • Value for money

Care outcomes was rated the most important consideration, followed by safety and user experience.

Several visitors signed up to receive the newsletter too.

Caring Together will attend lots of public events this autumn and winter to gather views to take into account when developing proposals for future integrated care. Watch this space for details of other events.
