Section 1 - patient choice

What is the survey about?
NHS Commissioners want to hear patient views about the  choice, location and type of care provided at local healthcare facilities including hospitals. 

The survey is about planned care (appointments and surgery booked in advance) as opposed to emergency or urgent care.

Who should complete the survey?
The survey can be completed by anyone who has experienced planned care at a local healthcare facility - we welcome responses from carers too. 

For the purpose of this survey, a local healthcare facility is any location where you might receive planned health care, other than a GP Practice or walk-in/ urgent care centre, for example a hospital or treatment centre. 

Completing the survey
The survey is split into four sections covering patient choice, location and type of care.  If you don’t feel a question is relevant to you/or you don’t want to answer it, please skip and move onto the next question. 

We welcome all feedback so please do not hesitate to add extra comments.

Your responses will help shape future local health services.  We will be sharing the findings and all responses will remain anonymous. In the first question we ask for your post code in order to help us understand where responses have been received from.
