Healthwatch Bucks is asking for feedback on life in local care homes during the coronavirus outbreak.

Wednesday, 24th June 2020, 9:46 am

Healthwatch Bucks is the independent watchdog for health and social care services in the county, and they want to understand the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on local services. As such they are asking residents of Buckinghamshire to complete a survey.

Views can then be shared with the decision-making organisations, so together a real difference can be made.

You can let them know what it was it like to live in a Buckinghamshire care home during the pandemic, or if you're a relative of someone living in a local care home or perhaps you work in one, you can likewise share your feedback.
