1. PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES: Health, Wellbeing and Social Care

VISION: People living in rural Surrey have access to health, wellbeing and social care services that are responsive and meet their needs.

This could be achieved by:

* Co-ordination of services across health and social care
* Community solutions that enable people to remain in their home and community for longer
* A focus on prevention and early intervention
* More good neighbour and village agent initiatives
* The use of technology, including telecare, to provide solutions and reassurance

Answer - Disagree

Generally, we agree on the use of technology and telecare which should be widely promoted.

We agree that community solutions that enable people to remain in their home and community for longer are desirable with a focus on prevention and early intervention being desirable.

However, we disagree that people living in rural Surrey currently have full access to health wellbeing and social care services that are responsive and meet their needs. 

Coordination of services across health and social care should not mean that health care services are (as at present) mis-described as social care in order to ensure that the cost of such services is borne by the individual rather than the NHS. Lack of co-ordination between NHS health care and local authority social care should not be used to force private individuals pay for their own care.

Again there seems to be an implicit suggestion that the voluntary sector can provide without consequential cost implications. In practice, this is likely to mean that services will diminish and become less widely available.
