Healthwatch would like to invite you to be involved in a project aimed at supporting dementia carers.
Healthwatch Bristol and Healthwatch South Gloucestershire would like to speak to people about their personal experiences of using local health care services, or those of someone they know or care for.
The Healthwatch Bristol survey will be open for 6 months with plans to speak to members of the public at selection of practices across the city. Healthwatch will analyse the results once the survey closes and present their findings in a report.
UPDATE 25/09/18: This important consultation was the main topic for the Bristol carers open meeting on 19 September.
Healthwatch acts as a consumer champion for the patients and the public of South Gloucestershire, hearing the views of the local population and promotes these views to relevant decision makers.
Healthwatch would like to know about waiting times, standard of support and services, as well as ongoing support across the Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire and B&NES areas.
The survey is open until 30 April and can be filled out online here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/J89P5WR
The findings, comments and themes will be taken forward by Healthwatch Bristol to a meeting with senior CAMHS managers in May
Healthwatch Bristol’s has launched a report following on from discussions with carers at the Carers Rights Day that we held in Fishponds in November 2017.
