The Big Conversation will provide people in Oldham with the opportunity to have an active, open, conversation about developing health and social care plans in Oldham and to allow patients, service users, carers and other stakeholders to input to and be involved in the transformation process.
- Talk to us! – Our street team will be out and about looking to chat to people in Oldham about their views on health and social care.
- Talk to yourself! – If you’re a bit shy and don’t feel like talking to us face to face, we’ll give you the chance to record your thoughts in our video diary booth…feel free to rant, rave, express yourself or explain your views about the health and social care issues that matter to you!
- Online survey – we want to ask you some questions about your experiences and thoughts about health and social care in Oldham. The online survey will only take about five minutes to fill in, and it will really help us to get to the nitty gritty about how health and social care transformation can improve people’s quality of life.
- Social media campaign #bigconversationoldham – we want to keep you informed and drive real interactive discussions and so you’ll see #bigconversationoldham start to appear on our Council and NHS twitter feeds and social media pages including facebook. Like, share and follow as many of our accounts as you can and get your friends and family following us too, the more people who join in the better the conversation!
- The #OldhamPromise – We’ll be inviting you to make your #OldhamPromise as part of the #bigconversationoldham. How will you play your part in improving the health and wellbeing outcomes for all of us here in Oldham? Let’s all promise to take some responsibility for our own health and wellbeing, and by doing that we can support the systems that deliver the care we might need later on.
- We’ll also be holding a number of events in September and October, where you’ll be able to come and hear from some of our health and social care experts, ask questions, make your voice heard and learn more about the work we’ve got planned for transforming health and social care. Check out our event calendar for more on this, we’ll be updating it regularly.
