There is increasing focus in the NHS on supporting patients to be in control of their own health and well being. To make this a reality, future services, care and support are going to need to be increasingly driven by what matters most to patients and carers. An exciting project is taking place across the Midlands and East working with patients and carers to understand, from their own perspective, what is important to them in managing their health and care better.
Your views matter - what help do you need to manage and make decisions about your health and well being? What helps you feel in control of your own care and what gets in the way?
The aim of the project is to gain feedback from as many patients and carers as possible and your views will help us understand and act on what really matters to you. You will be helping to ensure that the voices of patients and carers are at the centre of decision making about future commissioning priorities.
To start the discussion, we should be grateful if you could please take a few minutes to complete the survey on the attached link:
If you would like to be more involved in helping us gain more detailed understanding, there is opportunity in the survey to indicate your willingness to take part in a telephone interview or group discussions. The survey responses will be handled in line with the Data Protection Act and you are not required to provide any personal information unless you wish to be involved in further work
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey and we look forward to receiving your response.
