Our first 'Pulse check' Kingston focuses on what neurodiverse adults think about services in our borough.
Throughout April, Healthwatch Kingston is working in collaboration with adult ADHD peer support group, Fastminds, to find out about ACCESS to, QUALITY of and AFTERCARE from health and social care services in Kingston.
We are asking you to help us make services work better for the people who use them.
Everything Healthwatch Kingston says and does is informed by what local people tell us. As well as encouraging those who run local services to act on what matters to people, we also share local views and experiences with Healthwatch England and the Care Quality Commission who make sure that the government put people at the heart of care nationally.
FASTMINDS is an acronym for common symptoms that are often seen in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Forgetful. Achieving below potential. Stuck in a rut. Time challenged. Motivationally challenged. Impulsive. Novelty seeking. Distractible. Scattered.
Healthwatch Kingston will feedback what you share with us in a 'Pulse check Kingston' bulletin. We will email this to everyone that contributes to this engagement.
We will also publish the bulletin on our website, share with Healthwatch England and with local commissioners and providers of health and social care services to help improve the health and wellbeing of our local community.
Thank you for helping us help you.
