Our Work


As part of Healthwatch Calderdale and Healthwatch Kirklees Covid-19 feedback we heard from over 200 people about their experiences of medication.

 

Covid-19 Long term health conditions

To gather a full understanding of the experience of health and care services during the Covid-19 outbreak, over a period over of 12 weeks (end of May to end of August 2020) Healthwatch Calderdale and partners used a variety of different engagement approaches and tools including a survey and virtual focus groups to talk to people living and working in Calderdale.

Healthwatch Calderdale has now published its Hypermobility Syndromes report – thank you to everybody who took part.

The purpose of our project was to collect the voices of adults with hypermobility syndromes in Yorkshire and the Humber in order to develop an understanding of their health and social care experiences. 

There was also an opportunity for participants to tell us anything else that they felt was relevant to their experience of their condition.

We had over 250 responses to the survey – thank you to everyone who took part.
