New care survey launched
We are excited to announce the launch of our latest survey.
We understand that your NHS and social care may have been affected by delays and/or difficulties since March 2020.
Have you had to wait longer than usual for an appointment? Perhaps you’ve had difficulty contacting your GP or had an assessment postponed?
We would like to hear about your experience. How are these delays and challenges are affecting you?
We’re here to listen to your experiences and build a clear picture of what you need from the future of health and social care.
We’re here to help
We’ve already heard from lots of people so we know this is an issue that’s important to you and your loved ones. Simon called us to let us know he’s having to wait for a further 18-months before he can get his knee replacement operation. Mary who’s in her 60s told us she’s been waiting for a hospital appointment for months. She’s tried to contact the NHS services to find out what’s happening but couldn’t get a straight answer.
When Joan got in touch our partner team for this project ‘Healthwatch Kirklees’ were able to support her to get the right treatment from staff who understood her needs.
The difference your views make
Not only are we here to help you get to the bottom of challenges; the information you provide will help us influence NHS managers to do things differently in our local area.
In 2017 our wheelchair provision survey in collaboration with Healthwatch Kirklees led to an investment of 1-million pounds for Op-care to enable them to address a backlog of equipment requests for complex needs wheelchairs and mobility equipment. This project started from just one person’s feedback!
Your voice can help shape the NHS in Calderdale in the future.
We’re listening to you

Everything you tell us in this care survey will be anonymous and your feedback however you choose to share it with us will help shape the future of health and social care for you and your loved ones.
It’s our job to make health and care work better for everybody. During this challenging time of Covid-19, our role has never been more important and we are grateful for as much information you can provide.
The survey closes on the 30th of August 2021
