Share your experiences with us

During this very challenging time, it is more important than ever that you share your experiences of health and social care services, so that lessons can be learned for the future.

During this period many services have been required to put in place new systems and innovative ways of working. It is possible that some of these new systems may have value even in less challenging times. Equally, you may have faced a situation where new ways of working as a result of COVID-19, have not met your needs, and you may have suggestions for how this could be improved.

Whether your experience has been positive or negative, we want to hear from you.

Members of some communities are experiencing acts of racism, discrimination and verbal abuse with the outbreak of the virus. Covid-19 does not discriminate and the containment or spread of the virus is not based on ethnicity.
