We know the COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on core services in Northern Ireland during 2020/21. However, the full picture of this impact is still emerging.
In order to properly assess the impact of Covid-19, the Patient and Client Council is now asking you to tell them how the pandemic has affected your healthcare or social care, and how appropriate and effective you feel the Health and Social Care (HSC) response to COVID-19 has been.
We encourage you to complete the survey and bring the PCC's attention to any gaps in your healthcare and social care to enable them to deliver improvements that may be beneficial beyond the pandemic.
According to The Patient and Client Council the purpose of this survey is to understand:
The survey aims to evaluate the HSC response to COVID-19 to date, from the perspective of service users. This will allow The PCC and other HSC organisations to:
After the survey closes later in 2021, response data will be analysed and a report including recommendations will be published online. The report will avoid identifying individuals or their responses.
The survey will take around 10 minutes to complete.
