You will find the most recent surveys/questionnaires gathering views on different Health and Social Care services below so that you can give your views:
Extended Access to GPs survey
Coventry and Rugby CCG is asking local people to complete a survey to help them develop GP services that meet the needs of local patients. They need to ensure that everyone has easier and more convenient access to GP services, which includes offering appointments at evenings and weekends. This means ensuring services are joined up, make the best use of the resources available and helps us to continue improving health and care for patients.
The survey will take approximatly 10-12 minutes of your time.
Share your views on CAMHS services (deadline 14/8/18)
NHS England is looking for feedback on a new specification for Children and Young People's Mental Health Services (CAMHS).
Find out more and share your views by Tuesday 14 August.
The National Audit of Dementia needs your feedback
The National Audit of Dementia assesses the quality of care provided to patients with dementia when they are in hospital.
If you are visiting someone with dementia in hospital in England or Wales between 4th June and 21st September, please complete a survey about your experiences at or ask a member of hospital staff for a paper copy. From your responses, the audit team will be able to highlight areas of improvement, which hospitals need to focus on.
Everyone who completes a questionnaire, will have the opportunity to enter a prize draw to win one of five £50 vouchers for a high-street store of their choice.
The GP premises of the future (deadline 31 August)
The location and buildings where patients see their family doctor (GP) or other health professional vary widely across the country. As the first point of contact for healthcare services for the majority of patients, the design of these buildings is important.
The Patients Association are running a survey and will be holding focus groups to explore this topic in more detail. Share your thoughts on your local surgery or health centre and give your views on future improvements by completing their survey.
The survey will close on 31 August.
Medication for specific conditions
Are you taking medication to treat a condition such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis or Crohn’s disease? The Patients Associaton would like to hear your thoughts so they can better understand the needs of patients on these types of medications and the issues surrounding changes to medication, involvement in shared decision-making and any educational needs.
Access to treatments
NHS England is consulting on restricting access to certain treatments, for a variety of reasons. It says that some are not clinically effective or only sometimes effective, some may in fact do more harm than good, and for some there are better alternatives available.
The Patients Asscociation would like to hear your views on whether and how access to treatments should be restricted by the NHS. It will inform their response to the consultation. They will also issue a separate report giving the full findings.
If you would like to respond directly to NHS England’s consultation, you can do so here.
