Tell us what you would do to improve local health services

With growing pressure on the NHS – with more people living longer, more people living with long-term conditions, and lifestyle choices affecting people’s health – changes are needed to make sure everybody gets the support they need.

The NHS has produced a ten-year plan, setting out all of the things it wants health services to do better for people across the country. Now your local NHS needs to hear from you about what those changes should look like in your community.
