What we're working on
1. Emerging Communities engagement in Hounslow, London
We're working with the Hounslow Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to better understand what matters to people about care in five emerging community groups in Hounslow (Afghan, Polish, Romanian, Somali and Nepalese communities). We're hosting a series of exhibition in March to share people's experiences of care in Hounslow.
2. End of Life services in Hounslow & Richmond, London
We're supporting Hounslow & Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust to create three Always Events on Long Term Conditions, their Inpatient Unit and dementia care in the community. An Always Event is a simple statement that follow the format of “We will always do [specific, measurable action]”. Always Events are created based on what matters to patients, their carers and staff.
3. 100 conversations: understanding how people talk about dying and death
End of Life was an emerging theme in our Humans of Healthcare work and has continued in many discussions over the past two years. To help us better understand how people talk about dying and death, our plan is to speak with 100 people about how they talk about it. We're doing this to explor ways to support people to create time and space outside clinical settings to explore, articulate and share with loved ones, what matters to them about death and dying.
