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. 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.

In this survey we will be asking you to tell us about your hospital discharge experience.
