Our Annual Survey report

Healthwatch Northumberland Annual Survey 2018

Each year Healthwatch Northumberland asks supporters, residents of Northumberland and wider networks to complete a survey. This year a record 579 people responded giving us a wealth of information about your experiences of health and social care services.

The survey has nine questions about the types of services used, frequency of visits and with the opportunity to leave comments, hundreds of which have been reviewed to help Healthwatch Northumberland to understand what is happening in the county.

This report shares the themes which emerged from the survey.  These have helped us prioritise work for 2018 – 2019.  We also hope that it stimulates debate and conversations between individuals, communities, those who plan and provide our health and social care services.

We will be talking in detail about the findings at our AGM in October.
