Your views are being sought on how patient choice is offered at GP practices.
Healthwatch Lincolnshire is working in partnership with Lincolnshire East Clinical Commissioning Group to deliver a project seeking to understand how patient choice is offered within our GP practices and if there is anything it can do as an organisation to improve on this process to support both practices and patients.
A spokesman for Healthwatch said: “As you know, offering patient choice is an important part of the planned care process and our obligations to our patients.
“Healthwatch are keen to find out how choice is offered to patients when they are referred by their GP, when a choice of provider is available.”
Healthwatch Lincolnshire will also be undertaking a survey with patients in order to understand their experiences of being offered patient choice.
The survey can be accessed by going onto the website www.healthwatchlincolnshire.co.uk
All completed surveys need to be returned to Healthwatch Lincolnshire directly or can be dropped off at your local GP Surgery where they will be collected by Healthwatch Lincolnshire.
