Patient consultation on the future of the King Street Health Centre

Enventure Research is pleased to be working with the Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to consult with patients of the King Street Health Centre regarding the future of its GP practice.

 

The practice has experienced some problems with covering all of its GP shifts and is in the process of reviewing the service in order to ensure it meets the needs of the local population. The CCG therefore wished to engage with patients to explore a number of potential options for the future of the service.

 

A survey has been designed to identify patients’ views about the Centre, including positive and negative aspects of the current service, and worries about the impact of changes to the service. The survey will be administered in paper and online format and targeted at all patients registered at the practice over a twelve week period.

 

Following the survey period Enventure Research will provide the CCG with a report detailing the findings, which will help it ascertain the best option for the future of the King Street Health Centre.

 

WRWA working with Enventure for recycling resident engagement

Western Riverside Waste Authority (WRWA) has recently commissioned Enventure Research to undertake face to face engagement with residents in the London Borough of Lambeth and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

 

WRWA, along with the two participating Boroughs, wish to improve the quality and quantity of recycling across the Boroughs through the prevention of incorrect materials being recycled. A conversational script will therefore be designed to address residents’ current recycling habits and to ensure that they know where to recycle in their estate, and what they can and cannot recycle in communal bins.

 

Local and experienced staff will be trained by Enventure Research to carry out the engagement with residents over a period of eight weeks. The engagement programme will be carried out in one estate in the London Borough of Lambeth and one estate in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, and will consist of both engagement on the doorstep and conversations with residents at communal bins across the estates.

 

Residents in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea will also be encouraged by Enventure Research’s team of engagement staff to volunteer themselves to encourage their neighbours to recycle more and recycle correctly. Recruited residents will attend one of six training sessions, led by Enventure Research’s team of engagement staff, and will be provided with a payment for their time and service.

 

This period of resident engagement is due to begin 24th October and last for eight weeks. Following the completion of the engagement activity, Enventure Research will provide WRWA with a summary report of the engagement findings.
