Children's Disability Register - additional information
Information for Families were seeking information as to whether parents and carers wish the local authority to seek more information when signing up for the disability register. This consultation has ended.
Sent on behalf of Jess Town, Community Relations and Membership Engagement Officer, NHS Hastings and Rother CCG. We are reviewing and improving our information and services for when people need same day, urgent care or advice and we would like your views.
Urgent care is a term that describes the range of services provided for people who require same day health or social care advice, care or treatment.
This is different from emergency care provided in our emergency departments (A&E), other hospital departments, 999 and ambulances which are set up to respond to serious or life threatening emergencies.
Local urgent care services include: • GP practices • Walk-in centres at Eastbourne Station and Station Plaza, Hastings • Pharmacies • Mental health crisis support • Adult social care – emergency duty service • Out of hours GPs (clinics and home visits) • Out of hours nursing and social care teams • NHS 111 • NHS Choices website • Health Help Now app • East Sussex 1Space (East Sussex directory of care, support and wellbeing services).
Building on previous urgent care engagement, we want to communicate and engage more widely on our plans for urgent care. Any changes will come into effect from March 2018 and we’re seeking people’s views now to help us get the design right.
This consultation was carried out between 22nd June 2016 and 31st July 2016. In order to ensure that parents and carers were able to understand and make their views known about the proposal for change, ESCC produced a separate consultation document entitled ‘Parent Carer consultation: Change to Outreach Services for Children and Young People with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Speech, Language & Communication Needs (SLCN)’. The Local Authority has considered all feedback, comments, suggestions and questions and an analysis of the responses is on their website. The Local Authority proposes to go ahead with the initial proposal as detailed in the public consultation, with the amendment that the proposal will take affect from January 2018 to allow enough time for a strong transition program for children and families already receiving the outreach service. Consultation ended 31st July 2016
ESCC wanted to hear from anyone that has had contact with the service about their experience. They wanted to know what you think is working well and what can be improved in the future. Consultation ended 7th December 2015
To support joint working, East Sussex County Council and the local NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have written this Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Joint Commissioning Strategy. The purpose of this strategy is to explain to people living in East Sussex, and people living outside East Sussex who use our services what our aims are for future commissioning.
