August 2021 - What have we been hearing?

These are the key things we've been hearing about in August - including practical issues in hospitals, getting the right mental health care, seeing a dentist, and trouble finding the right information about health and care services.

We're sharing the key things we hear each month, so that services and commissioners of services can hear from you. We've collated enquiries from members of the public, feedback from voluntary sector colleagues, and stories shared on Care Opinion.

What are we hearing about?

August's key issues include:

  • Getting support from a GP
  • Hospital – care, practicalities, and communication
  • Mental health – getting the right support
  • Adult Social Care
  • Dentistry – difficulty accessing care
  • Access to information across the health & care system
