End of Life Survey
As part of the End of Life Care Strategy being carried out in the county, Healthwatch Gloucestershire asked local people about they types of end of life support available for individuals over 18 years old both locally and nationally. They asked about non-clinical support i.e. not information about a specific illness or condition, but other types of information that would support people through the end of life.
Care Homes Strategy
Research consultancy Evolving Communities and the county’s independent health and social care champion Healthwatch Gloucestershire have been working in partnership with Gloucestershire County Council to gather the views of Gloucestershire residents aged 65+, on care home and domiciliary care provision in the county. The information gathered will feed into Gloucestershire County Council’s new care home strategy and help to shape what care home provision looks like in the future. The full report and press release will be released early summer 2019.
