Sharing your views to improve services
To help you to share your views and influence changes to health and wellbeing services, this page lists local, regional and national engagements and consultations with relevance to Rutland that you can feed into.
There is more than one type of invitation below.
- Engagements are less formal and structured invitations to share your views, and often happen at an earlier stage of developing solutions or proposals.
- Consultations are more formal and structured invitations for feedback, often undertaken when proposals are more fully developed.
Use Healthwatch Rutland’s online form at any time to share your experiences of local services, including GP services, NHS dentists, pharmacies, care homes and homecare, other social care, hospitals, community health services, mental health services and more.
Or you can give your views in person at Oakham Baptist Church, 10-12 noon on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. Next meetings, 18th May and 15th June.
Be in with a chance of winning one of 15x £20 Amazon.co.uk Gift Cards, by sharing your thoughts.

Leicestershire and Rutland County Councils are seeking your views to help assess end of life and bereavement services as part of our joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA).
Your views will help us to assess the current and future health and social care needs for local people in this stage of life and can be used to improve how the councils provide health and social care services for residents.
As part of this work, we have developed a survey to help better understand the experiences and priorities of those who:
- have experienced a bereavement within the past 3 years
- either currently or have previously been a carer for a friend or family member nearing the end of life
- currently work as a formal carer for someone approaching the end of life, or in end of life/palliative care services
As well as contributing to the JSNA, feedback that we receive may be used by Leicestershire and Rutland County Councils in other pieces of work aimed at improving the support available for those nearing the end of life, their loved ones, and those delivering care.
Your responses will be stored in line with the Data Protection Act 2018. Where you have shared your experiences, responses may be used in the JSNA chapters and other work in the form of anonymous quotes to help illustrate key issues that have been highlighted through this piece of engagement.
We recognise that this survey covers sensitive and emotional subjects, so please feel free to stop and leave the survey at any time (please note though that you will be unable to save your progress if leaving the survey). If you feel that you require support, please consider visiting the Dying Matters website which provides a wealth of information on matters relating to topics discussed in this survey. This includes providing contact details for sources of carer and bereavement support.
Let us know your views
This survey will run for 4 weeks, from 8 June to 6 July. Responses will be used to help inform the JSNA on End of Life and may be included in the finished documents in the form of anonymous quotes to help illustrate key issues.
For questions about this survey, or if you require a paper copy, please email PHPool@leics.gov.uk or call 0116 305 0705.

Every three years, pharmaceutical needs assessments (PNAs) are carried out around the country to ensure that local community pharmacies –“chemist shops” - are meeting the pharmaceutical needs of local people.
The PNA helps NHS England manage and make decisions about requests from pharmacists or pharmacy businesses to set up new community pharmacies, merge businesses, or move premises within Rutland. They also provide insight into other areas where improvements can be made.
Preparing PNAs is the responsibility of Health and Wellbeing Boards. These Boards bring together local authorities, the NHS and other key partners to improve the health and wellbeing of their local areas.
Please note that PNAs focus solely on community pharmaceutical services and do not cover pharmacies in hospitals or prisons.
The Rutland Health and Wellbeing Board has now created a draft PNA for Rutland and we would like your comments on it. This is your opportunity to share your views.
Thank you for your assistance. Your views are important to us.
