What have people told us?

In December 2021, we published three reports - Urgent care, Transport to medical appointments, and Mental and emotional wellbeing. Within each of these surveys there were questions about access to health and care services in general, which were not included in the topic specific reports. This new report collates the answers to those questions.

You can read the report at www.healthwatchtameside.co.uk/report/2022-03-22/general-feedback-report-2021

It's not too late to have your say. We have a general survey available at www.healthwatchtameside.co.uk/share-your-views

People can give us a call on 0161 667 2526 for a paper copy, or to complete the survey over the phone.
