Have your say on improving Community Neurological Services

Lead: NHS Leeds CCG & LCH NHS Trust

Period: 5th Jul 2021 - 12th Sep 2021

We want to hear about people’s experiences of the Community Neuro Rehabilitation Service and start a conversation about what a new service could look like.

Brief description of project

The service has opted to make a change to enhance the accessibility to the service and ensure that patients are given the right input at the right time in the right place to meet their needs. The current model does not always support this. Equally, we want to ensure equity of access and reduce the waiting times that patients often face when trying to access the service. Overall, the change would allow the service to meet the needs of patients as opposed to the patient’s needs fitting the service model, ultimately enhancing a more positive patient experience as the service will have the ability to support the patient journey through the system.

The aim of the engagement is to understand people’s experiences of using the Community Neuro Rehabilitation Service in Leeds and the views of the public and wider stakeholders, in order to commission a service that meets the needs of local people.

Who will we speak to?

We would like to hear from current and past service users, carers, members of the public who haven’t heard of or used the service before.

What and how will we ask?

We are asking people to share their thoughts and experiences of using the community neuro rehabilitation service in Leeds and ideas of what a new service could look like. The questions we will be asking patients, public and carers have all been designed specifically within areas they can influence.
