Healthwatch Calderdale experiences of medication feedback request

Posted on

As part of Healthwatch Calderdale’s Covid-19 feedback we heard from over 200 people about their experiences of medication.

Many had positive feedback about their experience, but we heard that some things may have been hard, they were:

  • Changes to medication;
  • Review of medicines prescribed;
  • Having to rely on support of family/friends to get medication.

 

All of that feedback has already been presented to all relevant local NHS organisations in an effort to bring improvements.

But we feel there is more we can learn and are now asking for specific feedback about the main issues raised. We want to know if access to medication is impacting the health and wellbeing of the public in Calderdale and how.
