Healthwatch Darlington Survey

This survey will take a few minutes to complete depending on how much information you would like to share.

Healthwatch Darlington is your local patient champion for health and care services. We have significant statutory powers to ensure the voice of the patients and carers is strengthened and heard by those who commission, deliver and regulate health and care services.

When we talk about services we mean:
Health services such as those provided by your GP, hospital, Dentist, Optician or Ambulance service.
Care services such as day care, respite or residential care, personal care, support in the home or assistance with disability or a long term condition.

This survey is a way for us to discover what you think about NHS Continuing Health Care (CHC.)

Some adults who live with a long-term complex health need may qualify for free social care arranged and funded solely by the NHS. NHS Continuing Health Care is provided in a variety of settings outside of hospital, including your own home or a care home. 

Jargon Buster:

MDT - Multi Disciplinary Team, is a team of professionals for example doctors, nursers and social care worker.  

DST - Decision Support Tool, this is a long application. 

Thank you for taking part!
