The NHS is seeking views of local people and communities to better understand how to support people during Coronavirus pandemic and beyond.
While local GP Practices across mid and south Essex have continued to deliver services, the ways in which people have been accessing health services has been different.
From March 2020 through until the end of May 2020 GP practices across mid and south Essex have carried out just over 23,000 video consultations.
Gill Jones, Lay Member for Patient Participation and Involvement, NHS Basildon and Brentwood CCG, said: “The CCGs in Mid and South Essex, Hospital Trusts, NHS partners and local authorities have worked very closely together to meet the challenges of the COVID-19. In order to manage the Coronavirus pandemic with the best interests of local people and our staff in mind, there have been a number of changes to the ways in which people access NHS services including their GP.
“We want to understand what these changes have meant to our residents so that we can we can learn from their experiences and make sure health services best meet the needs of local communities. I would encourage people to complete this survey which takes just a few minutes. It can be completed online or on paper.”
