Understanding the vision

Run an information campaign aimed specifically at older people to help them understand the vision behind the changes that are happening in local health and care services and how to access the services that are available to help them age better from exercise to social activities and volunteering.

Why the contribution is important

It is difficult to argue with a lot of what is in the NHS Long Term Plan but it is a large and unwieldy document and the vision of persuading people to take responsibility for their own health, especially as they age, gets lost in the detail and the speed of some of the changes.  Older people are not a homogeneous group.  While some will happily use the web to get information, others are worried by the changes, especially where what is happening is poorly expressed and poorly explained.  The STP is on a journey and needs to take older people along with it.
