Call to help support and improve NHS and social care services in Tameside

RESIDENTS in Tameside and Glossop are being encouraged to give feedback to support and improve NHS and social care services locally.

Since the launch of the Because We All Care campaign in July 2020, over 50,000 people have shared their experiences which has helped inform how the Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulates services, as well as the recommendations Healthwatch has made at a national and local level to professionals about service improvements.

NHS Tameside and Glossop Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is backing the campaign and wants local people to share their feedback after they have visited their GP, a hospital or another service.

Taking part involves completing an online form to share feedback, whether it’s good or bad, big or small, and it will only take a few moments to complete.

Everyone has different needs and experiences of care. Sharing feedback on health and social care services will inform improvements to care in the community and around the country and reward the amazing work of staff, helping to improve care for people, their loved ones and for everyone.

Dr Asad Ali, co-chair at NHS Tameside and Glossop CCG, said: “We all care about the NHS and social care services. We are here to listen to your feedback, so we can work with services to improve care for you and others.

“We know the pandemic has created significant delays and changes to hospitals and other health and care services. Staff are doing everything they can to provide the best possible care during this difficult time. Your feedback can help them to identify ways to make care better – as well as celebrate great care.”
