We are pleased to share our findings from our recent survey, finding out the experiences of local people waiting for hospital treatment.
The four Healthwatch across the Frimley Integrated Care System, in partnership with Healthwatch Surrey developed and undertook a survey (running for 8 weeks early March to late April) to provide insight to enable services to understand the local experience of waiting for hospital treatment, to improve effective communication with those who are waiting, and reduce the potential for harm or deterioration while people are waiting.
Some parts of North Hampshire fall under Frimley, and therefore Healthwatch Hampshire were involved in this project, as well as an ongoing project for the remainder of Hampshire.
We asked things like what information was available to people while they waited and if they felt supported by their GP and the hospital.
Thank you to everyone who took part in this project.
