Summary of report content
Healthtwatch have created dedicated coronavirus information and advice pages on their website and have asked local voluntary and community groups, including local Covid-19 response groups, to help be their eyes and ears to hear people’s experiences of health and care services at this time. They have received comments about pharmacies, hospital care and dementia and how services are adapting during this time. This report will be shared with the local NHS, council and providers so they can hear where things are working well, and help them identify any gaps.
Between 1 March and 17 April 2020, Healthwatch have had 35 comments about how health and care has been impacted by coronavirus.
