A review of children’s community health and wellbeing services in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is underway to look into how some of these are delivered and consider how they could be improved.
The review is looking at a wide range of services (for the full list see the end of the media release). NHS Kernow, NHS England, Cornwall Council and the Council of the Isles of Scilly are working in partnership on the review and are asking for feedback from the public throughout June.
Jude Bowler, Programme Lead for Maternity and Children Services at NHS Kernow, said: “Ensuring children and young people have good health and positive wellbeing is fundamental and is part of the foundation for a healthy adult life. While the majority of children in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly do live healthy, happy lives, we know there is always scope to improve and we can do this by ensuring community health services are responsive, high-quality and cost-effective service.
“The first phase of the review has been to better understand existing provision and what people thought about the services. We did this by speaking with service providers, families and children, schools and other key partners.”
A report on the state of services is available on the NHS Kernow website at:
The review team is now asking people to give their feedback through an online survey http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/childrensreview by 30th June. The findings will be used by the partners to inform changes to services in future.
