Help your NHS help you

Coronavirus has changed how we live our life and how services run in lots of ways. To make room for the sudden need for more beds, the NHS changed the way it discharged people from hospital.

We are collecting the experiences of Wigan and Leigh residents and finding out their thoughts and opinions on new hospital discharge process. This feedback will be used to help the NHS plan how people leave hospital now and in future busy periods.

Take just 10 minutes to tell us about your experience and help the NHS know how to improve care for all.

The survey has been tested with seven local Healthwatch and eight partner organisations, including the British Red Cross.
