Share your experience of health and social care in Conwy


May 04, 2021

The Community Services Transformation programme is a joint-partnership project and its purpose is to deliver on the vision of Welsh Government for sustainable and integrated Community Health and Social Care.

The ultimate aim is provide seamless services to the people of Conwy & Denbighshire.

Health and social care partners in Conwy and Denbighshire - Conwy County Borough Council, Denbighshire County Council, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, Primary Care and the Voluntary and Community Sector want to hear about your experience of how health and social care services are being delivered in reality.

Working together, the partners want to ensure all residents get the best possible support to stay well and live healthier lives for longer.

To help understand how this can be achieved there will be twelve virtual workshops asking people for their views about how everyone are working together.

Each workshop will be via Zoom and will last for 90 minutes and you can register here.
