Healthwatch Wigan and Leigh is keen to hear from anyone in the Wigan Borough who has been discharged from any hospital within the last 12 months.
We want to hear about people’s experience of discharge from hospital: was it safe, timely, well co-ordinated? We also want to hear about people’s experiences of support and services post-discharge from hospital.
Any information shared with us will be used anonymously in a report that will be shared with the people who provide and those who commission services.
We are particularly keen to hear from people with additional vulnerabilities:
• Those with poor mental health
• People with alcohol and substance misuse problems
• People with disabilities
• Older people
We will be distributing an online survey via our contact database and online media channels, however, to ensure that vulnerable group are represented we wish to engage with a variety of community groups and organisations within the Borough , to work with service users to complete paper versions of the questionnaire and to gather patient stories.
The survey only takes a few moments, follow the link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Discharge-from-hospital
If you are part of a group or organisation supporting people with additional vulnerabilities and can offer us an opportunity to engage with your clients or you require further information please contact Karen Wilson on 01942 834666 or email [email protected]
