Our Current Projects
We are currently working on a number of projects. Each of these have been informed by talking to people about their concerns. You can speak out to Have Your Say on health and social care in Wolverhampton, or alternatively, invite us to come and speak to a group you run/participate in!
Below are some of the projects we are currently running. If you would like to be more involved in the projects we run, please express your interest.
Urgent Care Centre
This project will seek to examine the quality and fitness for purpose of the new Wolverhampton Urgent Care Centre, which opened in April 2016. The project will focus on getting visitors perspectives on their experience of using the Centre and the levels of confidence of the services being provided. This will include surveys, interviews and focus groups.
Transfer of Planned Care Services between New Cross and Cannock Chase Hospitals
This project proposes an evaluation of patient experience during the transition of services to highlight where the transition has worked well and identify any areas for improvement.
Safeguarding Experiences – Adult Social Care
The primary aim of this project is to develop a consultation and engagement programme in order to gather views and feedback of safeguarding matters with specific reference to adult social care. The project will also consider the impact and outcomes of advocacy in respect to safeguarding matters especially adults of all ages who are eligible for publicly funded social care services. The project has held a series of focus groups as well as individuals who have had a safeguarding concern.
Social Care Assessments
This project will explore to what extent delays in social care assessments, care package arrangements and reviews are a concern for local people. The project will also link into the Safeguarding Experiences project in determining advocacy support available for those currently waiting a care assessment or review. We will be doing focus groups and interviews along with gathering data from the local authority and undertaking surveys with local care homes and voluntary and community groups.
