What matters to you in primary health care services

Please help the Healthwatch Staffordshire Team to understand how people in Staffordshire are feeling about primary care services, which services are important to them and their community.  They are interested in your opinion, and this is an opportunity to have your voice heard and provide influence on the considerations being given to the range of services that could be offered in Staffordshire.

Healthwatch Staffordshire have created a quick 10 question survey. Please use the following link to fill this out.

The survey is only open until 14th November 2021 so please don’t miss your opportunity to help Healthwatch Staffordshire understand what matters most when it comes to primary care health services.
