Your views count – GP Access 

When it comes to accessing health and social care, your views really do count.  

Irrespective of your identity, where you live, your ability, or background, the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted a range of health inequalities and access barriers. To address this situation, we invite you to help inform and shape the way services are planned and delivered. 

Healthwatch Leicester and Healthwatch Leicestershire seek to ensure that your voice is heard both across the City and County. Your involvement will help to ensure that those in power understand your experiences and that they take into account your feedback to make informed decisions. We are working jointly with Healthwatch Rutland who will deliver similar focus groups for those living in Rutland. 

To gather your views our focus groups will examine the impact of new models of access and delivery of care, including changes that are continuing during recovery from the pandemic.
