Cheshire Healthwatch Needs to Hear Your Feedback on Coronavirus and Healthcare
|Published: 2nd July 2020 07:40|
Healthwatch is an independent body that exists to give people a voice in health and social care provision, making sure their views shape the support they need.
Healthwatch needs to hear from you on your experiences during the pandemic.
Over the past six weeks, Healthwatch Cheshire has been asking residents to complete a survey to talk about their experiences since lockdown, to help understanding of what is working well and what could be improved, as well as considering people's mental health and wellbeing during the pandemic.
David Crosthwaite, Healthwatch link for Neston and Willaston, said: "The survey is ongoing so that we can capture experiences as the situation progresses. Healthwatch Cheshire regularly feeds back findings from the survey to the local authority, the Clinical Commissioning Group, local NHS and to health and care providers across Cheshire.
"This is so information can be provided in a timely and useful manner to those people who make decisions on how services are delivered both nationally and locally.
"At present we have had approximately 1000 responses across Cheshire and I am sure you will agree that hearing what is important to local people is vital in ensuring that health and care services are tailored to meet their needs.
"With this in mind please can I ask if you could complete the survey, share with others to encourage as many people as possible to share their experience, and also to keep revisiting the survey as the situation progresses."
It will take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete, and all responses are confidential.
