A Greater Manchester hospital service review is currently taking place involving a team of doctors, patients and other healthcare staff from across the region to make children’s health care services the best they can be and to make them sustainable and affordable for the future. To help the team design future children’s services in Greater Manchester, we would be grateful if you would consider taking part in a brief survey. This is to find out how you feel about the hospital-based children’s services that you as a parent/guardian have used in Greater Manchester, and to ask how you think they can be improved. Your opinions will help identify what is important to parents/guardians and patients and what needs to be considered from your perspective in the design of any future services.
We have also designed a survey specifically aimed at engaging children and young people. Young people have helped us construct the questions, style and format and it would be very much appreciated if you could encourage your child/relative to complete the short survey.
Participation in this survey is entirely voluntary. Please be assured this will not affect any services you are currently receiving.
It will take about ten minutes to complete the survey and it is completely anonymous; we will not be able to identify you in any way, so feel free to respond honestly. You are under no obligation to complete any of the questions in the questionnaire.
You can complete the survey by logging on to the following link:
For Adults: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/GMHospitalParents
For Children and Young People: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/HospitalGMCYP
The survey will be open to complete until 8am on 9 July, 2018.
If you would like a paper version of the survey or require an alternative format/language or have any questions about the survey, please contact Usman Nawaz or Audrey Abbott at the NHS Transformation Unit (0161 967 0300).
Thank you for your time and valuable contribution to this project.
