What did they do?

They pre arranged to attend the weekly drop-in session, where they are aware that they have a regular attendance of around 50 people. They took along, banners, leaflets, information on the Long Term Plan and hard copies of the SY&B Survey. They also took along an activity where we gave participants 20 billion pounds and asked them if they were in charge of the NHS where would they spend the money.

Conclusion from Rotherham Military Veterans Group

From the activity we were able to ascertain that residents in Rotherham were torn on where the money should be spent and many had a tendency to share out the cash equally between four of the services. The pot receiving the lion’s share of the cash (27.5%) was Acute Services, this was closely followed by Primary and Community Care (22.5%) which was joint second with Mental Health and Learning Disabilities. Coming a close third was Clinical Priorities (20%) with the remaining 15% of cash being allocated to Resources
