Wessex Healthier Together - Parent Consultation
Your Opinion Counts
When your child is suffering from one of the common childhood illnesses eg a fever, rattly chest, runny nose, diarrhoea & vomiting, rash, urine infection; we would like to know what health services you use and how you think they could be improved.
Sometimes it is confusing to understand which services to use and when, and sometimes parents may choose to visit their A&E department or call 999 for an ambulance – when actually, if more local services were available, their child could have been looked after in the comfort of their own home.
The Wessex Healthier Together project has been set up to review how urgent paediatric care could be better delivered to children (aged under 5years) in Hampshire, Dorset & Wiltshire areas; and part of the process is to listen to the views of parents and carers.
Your thoughts are very important and we would be grateful if you could take 5mins to complete the survey for Parent/Carer/Guardians at: http://www.healthiertogetherwessex.nhs.uk/surveys/
