The public are offered a primary role to shape future Manx health and care services

Tuesday, 12 January 2021

The Health and Care Transformation Programme is asking the public for their views on how general practice (GP) services, dental services, pharmacies and opticians can best support them with their health and wellbeing.

This is an opportunity to affect health and care delivery services across the Island by having a say in the way they are provided, and ensure that they are sustainable and meet the public’s need in the long term.

The survey results will help shape the future of health and care services, specifically the first port of call, i.e. primary care, as these services are where the public go when they first need help.

This short survey takes on average five minutes to complete and aims to provide the public with the chance to shape future health and wellbeing services. This is a huge opportunity to help shape how these key services are delivered on the Isle of Man. The survey is asking the public what they would like to be able to access, when they would like it and how they would like a service delivered.

The survey is available until 29 January 2021.

The process of developing a future vision for primary care has started and will be multi-staged and encompass a variety of opportunities to get involved and be heard. Workshops and discussion forums with staff and service users will be held over the coming months for those that have indicated they are willing to be involved.

Primary Care at scale is a way of working that connects all elements of primary care to facilitate joint delivery across Primary Care services and organisations. This care will run alongside Manx Care.
