Frailty and Dementia Services in Gloucestershire: Baseline Assessment of Service Provision

 
Gloucestershire CCG is leading a programme of work to support individuals living with frailty and/or dementia, and/or their families and carers.  The definition of frailty we are using is “a person’s mental and physical resilience, or their ability to bounce back and recover from events like illness and injury”. 

We know there is a lack of understanding of the services provided specifically for people who are frail and/or have dementia and how they connect to each other.  So, this survey has been designed to capture the detailed current picture and is being sent to colleagues from statutory and VCSE (Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise) service providers, including GHFT (the local main hospitals Trust), GHC (the local community and mental health Trust), primary care, and Adult Social Care.  

Following your help completing this survey, we will produce a map of the services across the county, including highlighting any gaps.  The information gathered will also inform our strategies and plans, ensuring future resources are used to best effect, which in turn will benefit both service users and those providing services.  The outputs of this survey will be made widely available. 

It is expected to take between approx. 5 – 15 minutes to complete this survey depending on the type and the size of your service (the smaller your service, the less questions you will be asked).

Please respond by 9am on 27 May 2022.  If you have any questions, please contact sian.cole6@nhs.net and 07919 112936.  Please only complete one survey per service (noting there maybe more than one service in any one organisation).  If you know of another service(s) that should be sent this survey, please let Sian know.

Thank you so much in anticipation of your participation – it will make such a difference in helping to improve future services for vulnerable people in our communities.
