People wanted to know what the National Care Service could do about some public health problems. These included air pollution and poverty.

Some people said that a change in society was needed. They said care support should be about communities coming together to help one another.

People also said they needed support to understand the health and social care system. They needed to know what support was available to them in their area.

Some people said the system might need to be more flexible. This would make it easier for people to take on paid caring roles for a few hours a week.
