Healthwatch Calderdale experiences of medication feedback request

As part of Healthwatch Calderdale’s Covid-19 feedback we heard from over 200 people about their experiences of medication.

Many had positive feedback about their experience, but we heard that some things may have been hard, they were:

  • Changes to medication;
  • Review of medicines prescribed;
  • Having to rely on support of family/friends to get medication.

All of that feedback has already been presented to all relevant local NHS organisations in an effort to bring improvements.

But we feel there is more we can learn and are now asking for specific feedback about the main issues raised. We want to know if access to medication is impacting the health and wellbeing of the public in Calderdale and how.

Please visit www.healthwatchcalderdale.co.uk to complete the survey or via this link:

If you would like a paper copy of the survey please call HWC on 01422 399433 or email info@healthwatchcalderdale.co.uk with your details so we can post a copy.

Healthwatch Calderdale Survey of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services

Healthwatch Calderdale is working on a project to source the views of people with experiences of local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

They have been working with families on a one-to-one basis and are now seeking further views on the services for children displaying signs of autistic spectrum condition (ASC), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or attention deficit disorder (ADD).

Healthwatch believes that in sharing your experiences, anonymously, they can help make a positive difference. They will share these stories with the CAMHS service provider and the commissioner (Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group), to ensure people’s voices are heard, highlighting the issues raised and making recommendations for positive change.

To have your say please complete this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CAMHS
If you have any questions please contact Joanne Douglas at Healthwatch Calderdale via joanne.douglas@healthwatchcalderdale.co.uk
