Health and Social Care is Changing in Salford…..Tell us what you think!
Salford Together is a partnership between the NHS and City Council in Salford. This partnership is transforming the health and social care system in Salford by bringing the services of GPs, nursing, social care, mental health, community services and voluntary organisations into a more joined up system that focuses on a person’s individual needs and provides them with the support to manage their own care.
But we can’t do this without your help. We want to know what you think about our plans and what’s important to you so we can focus on what works best for our communities.
Please take a few minutes to tell us what you think about our plans by completing a questionnaire... and you could be in with a chance to attend a VIP event, hosted by Key 103 radio with special guests. You can find out more about our plans by watching our animated video
If you want to continue to find out what is happening in health and social care in Salford, keep an eye on the Salford Together website – www.salfordtogether.org.uk follow us on Twitter @SalfordTogether or on Facebook - Salford Together
