Tell us what you think about urgent health care services!
Nottingham North and East CCG has received funding from the Prime Minister’s Challenge Fund to develop urgent care services, including weekend GP access, in Carlton and Arnold from 2015. If successful, the plan is to roll it out to other areas in Nottingham North and East.
NHS urgent and emergency care services provide life-saving care for patients who need medical help quickly or perhaps unexpectedly. However, with our A&E departments under increasing pressure, we need to look at alternative ways people can get urgent care in the community.
What do we mean by urgent care?
By urgent care, we mean everything from pharmacies, same day GP appointments and GP weekend and evening appointments to accessing out of hours health services (delivered in Nottingham by NEMS – Nottingham Emergency Medical Services – calling NHS 111, walk in centres and A&E (A&E provides urgent care but should be used in emergencies only).
We want to hear what you think about urgent care services and local healthcare services in general. Your opinions count and will help us shape our health services and develop the urgent care model we roll out in the area. So please fill in the questionnaire and tell us what you think. Please share the questionnaire with friends, neighbours and colleagues who are patients in the Nottingham North and East area.
Anyone aged 16 or above can take part. Individual responses will be kept anonymous and confidential.
If you have any questions then please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The survey will close at 5pm on Monday 22 September 2014
Thank you for taking the time to improve health services in the Nottingham North and East area.
