We host a Wheelchair Service User Forum covering service users within NHS Vale of York and North Yorkshire CCGs.

The forum provides a unique opportunity for people to share their experiences with other service users, clinicians, commissioners and the providers; NRS healthcare. We are committed to use this forum to involve service users in the monitoring of the contracts and service improvements in the future.

Notes and presentations

You said, we are doing

As part of the wheelchair service user forum, we have provided an update about the actions we (the Clinical Commissioning Group and NRS Healthcare) are taking forward. 

Summary of the initial Wheelchair Service User forum in November 2019

The aim of the meeting was to provide an update about services and personal wheelchair budgets, and to give attendees the opportunity to give feedback to the providers of services. 28 people attended including service users, staff, clinicians, voluntary organisations, NRS Healthcare and commissioners.

Listening directly to feedback from services users was very powerful. Following a very rich discussion commissioners and providers committed to hold regular forums and work together to provide feedback on a number of key themes that were raised at the meeting. This included reviews of equipment, clarity around personal health budgets, provision of community assessments and ensuring users get the right equipment first time.  You can read what was said, and how providers and commissioners will respond to feedback by clicking here.

These themes have continued to be addressed at future meetings, and we have provided the changes that have been made to services as a direct result of patient feedback.
