Paediatrics Accident and Emergency Review
Across Greater Manchester we are reviewing Paediatric (Children’s) Medicine Services. We want to know what it was like when you went to A&E and how we can improve it for children and young people. There are around 520,000 children and young people in Greater Manchester and our health services have to be able to help them all – with the right staff in the right places. We have to plan now for the future and we need your help. Watch our film co-produced with children and young people to find out more. To help us gather views from a wide group of people we have designed two surveys, one for parents/carers /guardians and one for children and young people.
The surveys will close on 28 February 2020.
Adult Carers Survey
Manchester Health and Care Commissioning recognise the value that carers provide in supporting vulnerable people to live independent, fulfilling lives. This survey has been designed working together with carers to help us to identify their needs and how they can be supported better. An unpaid carer is someone of any age who supports, unwaged, a relative, partner or friend who due to physical or mental illness, disability, frailty or addiction could not manage without that support.
The survey will close on 28 February 2020.
