Views wanted on healthcare services

Young people, parents and carers who use physical healthcare services in Dorset are being asked to give feedback on what’s good and what could be done better.

Views given will help inform improvements to services for local children and young people up to the age of 25, including bringing care closer and identifying problems at an earlier stage enabling earlier interventions.

Views can be given by completing our online via the Dorset’s Vision website –

Printed and easy-read surveys can also be requested via email or by calling 01305 368073.

Views are also being sought at a number of meetings and events with children, young people, parents and carers; including in a number of local schools.

The online survey takes about ten minutes to complete and asks respondents for views on the care they receive at home, via their GP surgery, community hospital and educational establishment.

All information given is confidential and people can sign up to stay informed and involved in using the views sought to help design future plans.

Anne Salter is Head of Service (Children’s and Learning Disability) with NHS Dorset CCG “Over the coming weeks we will be promoting this review to encourage as many people as we can to take part.

We want to give the message to young people living in and around Dorset, their parents and carers that it’s OK to tell us if there is something they feel needs improvement when it comes to services around physical health and now is the time to have your say make your voice heard. Likewise, if there is something that works well, tell us – we want to hear all views, the good, the bad and everything in between and are inviting anyone who uses these services or cares for someone who does, to have a say.”
