Summary of report content

This report focuses on two areas of Bolton, Breightmet and Little Lever. The report was written by Healthwatch Bolton in association with Bolton Community and Voluntary Service (CVS), as part of the local engagement alliance. For this research 31 people were spoken to about their views on local healthcare. The comments gathered were on a range of different topics, with the aim of understanding local experiences. Recommendations were made as part of this report, but due to the wide ranging nature of the comments it was not relevant to name a single provider for response. Three relevant groups were identified to take note of views gathered, primary care planning group, social prescribing project and NHS England.
