HSC are asking the GDA, other stake holders, individuals with an impairment or carers, for help to progress a review of the current provision of equipment, aids and adaptations. An ambitious time frame means HSC aims to include recommendations within the Primary Care Review, due before the States in July.
HSC are currently in a fact-finding period so that they can plan further work and add to their knowledge of the current systems and provision and what gaps the third sector are already filling, what the problems are and what the demand is.
Whether you are an individual who needs equipment, aids or adaptations, a carer seeking assistance for someone else, or represent a charity or organisation helping to provide such equipment and modifications, we want to hear from you. This is so that we can better inform the reviewer and ensure that all voices are heard.
We are holding a free drop in session on Wednesday 8th June from 12 noon until 14:00 pm. The meeting will take place in the Reading Room at Les Cotils. See AccessAble guide for Les Cotils here.
The session will start with a brief introduction from Nikejshia Moon who is the Senior Strategy and Policy Officer for the States of Guernsey. Do not worry if you cannot make it for 12:00 as it is an interactive session to find out your views.
It would be helpful for you to consider the questions that are relevant to you before you come, which you can find by pressing the button below. You do not need to be limited to these questions as we are interested in any experience you have had with the current system or supplementing the current system.
