Listening to people about the NHS Long Term Plan in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw saw our Healthwatches recognised as the winner in the Outstanding Achievement category at the annual Healthwatch awards.

Working with local Healthwatch partners (Sheffield, Rotherham and Barnsley with Doncaster co-ordinating the response) under the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System (ICS), the ‘What Would You Do?’ campaign saw more than 1,300 responses from people across the region, resulting in service user feedback focusing on self-care, mental health investment and joined-up care. The 38-page report was presented at the regional ICS in July to a fantastic response, with updates delivered to local stakeholders and partners alongside publication on our website.
