Disabled people, those living with a long-term health condition and their families now have the opportunity to help shape the future of services in England by sharing their experiences of the NHS and the care system with the regulator for the NHS in England – The Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The CQC acknowledge that they have not previously planned the future of NHS and care services with input from disabled people and their families, so they are asking that we invite you to share with them, in confidence, your experiences through their ‘Tell Us About Your Care programme’.
It allows you to provide the CQC first hand with your experiences – during hospital stays, GP visits, accessing care services etc.
You can also do anonymously. The simple to complete ‘Questionnaire’ will ask you for details of the location of the establishment and to describe your experiences as a user of their services.
The ‘Tell Us About Your Care’ page can be located via this link. Once you have completed the questionnaire, we ask that you share this email with your family and friends so that they too can offer their own experience.
