What is this study about?
We are currently working on a study to explore the quality of care received by people who experience eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties, and who also have Parkinson’s Disease, when admitted to hospital. We will produce a report for clinicians and other healthcare staff about how to improve the care they deliver and guidance for patients and families on the care you should expect to receive.

Information is being collected across the whole of the UK, and as part of this project we are asking for the views of patients’ and their carers, as it’s you who really know how services could be improved to help you and other people with eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties associated with Parkinson’s Disease.

The results of this survey will feed into the final report, which will be available to download from the NCEPOD website: https://www.ncepod.org.uk/ 
Who should complete this survey?
Please complete this survey if you or a relative/somebody you care for has Parkinson’s and has experienced eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties whilst admitted to hospital.

If you are a relative or carer, please complete the questionnaire about the person with Parkinson’s.
ALL RESPONSES GIVEN AS PART OF THIS STUDY ARE CONFIDENTIAL AND WE ARE UNABLE TO COMMENT ON INDIVIDUAL CASES
We recognise that different people will have different experiences and will feel able to answer some questions more easily than other questions. Where you are unable to answer a question, please indicate this by marking your response as ‘unknown’
