Healthwatch Derbyshire is asking people to share their views on how the pandemic has changed the way they access GP appointments.

The organisation – a health and social care services champion – will share the findings of the survey with GP practices as well as Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

Healthwatch Derbyshire says: “The Covid-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the way we access our GP practices – potentially permanently, with access to care moved to a triage system, online bookings, and video, phone and face-to-face appointments.

“Healthwatch Derbyshire would like to hear from patients, carers, and service users about how this changed has impacted them and is asking local residents to share their views and recent experiences of accessing their GP.

“This survey has been designed to help local providers to understand what has been working well, and equally, the areas that could be improved,”
