Healthwatch Peterborough wants your hospital waiting list experiences
Healthwatch Peterborough is asking people to share their experiences of being on a hospital waiting list.
The organisation said local hospitals across are having to make tough decisions after delays and cancellations due to Covid-19, with time needed to deal with the backlog.
It said: “Is your operation or treatment on pause or are you waiting to be seen? Independent health and care champion Healthwatch Peterborough wants to hear how you are coping with the delays.
“Your feedback will go back to NHS decision-makers so that they understand what’s important to local people who are waiting.”
Healthwatch wants to hear:
. What the wait has been like for you, a loved one or someone you care for
. Are you getting all the information you need to help you stay safe and well while you wait?
. Is a local group or voluntary organisation giving you support to manage the wait?
. Do you know what to do if you become unwell?
. What could make the wait easier for you?
