Current engagement opportunities

We want to make sure that NHS services in Wakefield are the best they can be, and that’s only possible if we know what’s important to you.

You might want to ask a question, or you might want to let us know that you’re not happy about something. Or you might think that you received really good care. Whatever it is, we want to know.

Please contact us at wakccg.engagement@nhs.net 

Hospital Transfers in maternity care

This survey has been created jointly by the Maternity Voices Partnerships in Wakefield District & North Kirklees.  They are looking to understand more about the experience of being offered an alternative hospital to give birth to your baby.  Please complete this survey.

Maternity Listening Events

Calling all new parents! Tell us about your experiences and be part of improving maternity care for everyone.

If you are currently pregnant, or have recently had your baby, we would love to hear about your experiences of care. Wherever you accessed services, come and have a cuppa with us!

Your babies and children are very welcome – refreshments are provided (maybe you’ll even get to drink it while it’s hot…). We’re looking forward to seeing you!

Patient Participation Groups survey

Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are an important part of GP Practice. By working alongside the practice, they help make improvements to the experience of patients who use the practice.

We are aware that PPGs across the Wakefield District are doing some great work to support their practices, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Equally, we know there are groups who have found it difficult and may have encountered challenges supporting their practices.

We would like to hear from PPGs, its members, practice staff and interested members of the public about their experiences whether that be thoughts and ideas, challenges or success stories.  It doesn’t matter if you don’t currently have a busy or active PPG, we would like to hear from you event if you don’t have a PPG at the moment.

If you have any questions or comments about this survey or if you would like support, please email wakccg.engagement@nhs.net  

The survey can be found on Smart Survey.
