Community event

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

What are we hearing about?

April's key issues include:

  • GPs - issues getting through on the phone and challenges booking appointments
  • Hospital care - unequal experiences
  • Difficulty accessing NHS dentistry
  • Mental health services
  • Feedback about the proposed new healthcare centres
