Get paid to give your view on community therapy

By 8th February 2023February 16th, 2023No Comments

We know the care we receive from health and care organisations is as vital as ever and remains top of the agenda for what people feel is important.

In Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire, those health and care organisations are working closely together to support people who rely on services.

One area receiving a huge amount of attention is Home First – a number of services and programmes which support people to stay at home longer or come home from hospital more quickly. We know people recover better at home, and unnecessary extended stays in hospital have really negative impacts on people’s health; especially older people. That’s why this work is so important to get right.

One of the things we’re doing to support this work is to develop communications campaigns and activity to share information and awareness about the support available for people outside of hospital.

We want to test the messages we have started to design with the people we are aiming these at and are holding a series of focus groups to talk through some concepts and ideas. We are looking for people who would be interested in taking part in these sessions and give us their views.

Anyone who takes part will receive a thank you for your time in the form of £15 per hour plus a contribution to travel or WiFi.

The details of the sessions are below. We are really sorry these are at short notice; we had a number of issues beyond our control which meant we couldn’t confirm them earlier.
