Community health services provide support across a range of needs and age groups but are most often used by children, older people, those living with frailty or chronic or long term conditions and people who are near the end of their life. Examples of community health services include; district nursing, falls services, podiatry (for foot problems), diabetes specialist service, pain management and blood testing.
Mental health services offer care and support to children, young people and adults depending on the level of mental health need, from talking therapies for common mental health conditions, like anxiety and depression, through to severe mental illness, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.
NCL CCG wants to develop a ‘core service offer’ for users of both community health services and mental health services. This will set out clearly what you can expect to receive from these services as a minimum regardless of where you live.
NCL CCG would like to hear your views
To help inform these reviews and to shape the core service offer, it is important that we hear from local people who are using the existing services. As such, we are inviting residents of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington to share their thoughts about the services they use.
You are welcome to complete this survey if you use local community health services, mental health services or both. You may also care for someone who uses these services – your opinion is also important to make sure we have a broad range of views and feedback.
The survey is anonymous and strictly confidential. Your personal information will not be shared and the responses you give will not affect the care you receive. Under the Data Protection Act 2018, we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect about you. We will only use your information for the purpose we have described, and we will not pass on your details to any third party or government department unless you give us permission to do so. We use leading technologies to safeguard your data, and keep strict security standards to prevent any unauthorised access to it.
