Wheelchair survey: we need your views
West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Southampton City (CCG) are committed to ensuring the right care is delivered at the right time, in the right place, by the right people. This year we are exploring opportunities for re-procuring the Hampshire Wheelchair Service. To inform the procurement process we need to hear from service users, to help us consider how we can deliver the best possible service for our population. Our survey is now closed.
Phase 1 Engagement
Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback so far. This information has informed our Market Warming Event and the development of our specification for the new Wheelchair Service. A copy of the full report can be downloaded here.
Phase 2 Engagement
As promised we will be heading into our next phase of engagement where we want to hear your views on our proposed service specification.
We will do this by attending service users groups when invited, holding a focus group for community staff, and hosting a second stage of focus groups.
The details of the next round of focus groups are below
- Wednesday 14 August, 1 – 3pm, at Pavilion on the Park, Eastleigh
- Tuesday 6 August, 1 – 3pm, at the Spectrum CIL building in Rose Road, Southampton
Please book a place by emailing whccg.communications@net. If you are unable to attend these focus groups but feel like you have further comments you would like to make, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you a local group and think it would be valuable for us to attend please get in contact by emailing email@example.com
An Easy Read version of the full engagement process will be made available.
