Crimes Against Older Persons



The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) have launched a public consultation on the revised public policy guidance on Crimes Against Older People.

The policy guidance has been developed in partnership with two National Scrutiny Panels, which consist of members with experience and expertise from a community and academic perspective.

In advance of its finalisation, we would welcome views on five specific questions regarding the policy guidance. Any other comments outside these questions are also welcome.

The consultation can be found on the CPS website at: and will run until 28 October 2018. The final policy guidance will be published later in the year.

Values week

Evidence shows that when healthcare teams work together the result is safer, higher quality care for local people. Our Trusts are moving towards becoming a single organisation. As we do, it is vital that we create a strong, shared culture and set of behaviours that we all agree on.

As such 2gether and NHS Gloucester Care Services are holding a ‘Values week’, beginning on Monday 15th October. As part of this week, they would be delighted to hear from local people about what great care means to them, listen to their experiences of services and hear what went well and where we can improve.

End of Life Care Survey

As part of the Clinical Commissioning Groups End of Life Care Strategy, Healthwatch Gloucestershire is looking at what end of life support is available for individuals over 18 years old both locally and nationally. This support is non-clinical support; not information about illnesses or conditions but other types of information that would support patients or families through the end of life. We want to hear from Gloucestershire residents only, who have accessed support around end of life care or who would be looking at accessing this information. End of life patients are individuals ‘approaching the end of life’ when they are likely to die within the next 12 months.
