Do you live on the Isle of Wight? Are you or your loved ones waiting for hospital treatment?

Healthwatch Isle of Wight are asking the public to share their experience and views of waiting for hospital treatment.

Many people have had their hospital treatment delayed by the pandemic – are you one of them? We want to know if you’re getting the advice and information you need while you wait. We also want to know if you would consider treatment at an alternative hospital in Winchester if it was available.

It’s vital that NHS decision makers hear your experience so that your views can inform work being undertaken by the NHS to reduce waiting times for planned hospital treatment. Whether it’s gynecological surgery, a knee replacement or a biopsy you’re waiting for, if you’ve got a story to tell, we’re here to listen.

We will be anonymously sharing your feedback with NHS decision makers to help them understand what needs to be put in place to better support people waiting for treatment. So, whether your experience is good or could be improved – we want to hear it.

The deadline for this survey is 30th June 2022. If you need the survey in another format or would like to discuss anything, call 01983 608608 or email enquiries@healthwatchisleofwight.co.uk.
