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.
Current engagement opportunities
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.
Share your experiences of maternity services during the pandemic
The way that some maternity services are delivered has changed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We’re working with Wakefield council and our local Maternity Voices Partnership to understand the impact of these changes on new mums, pregnant women and families.
We would like to hear from you if you have used maternity services during the pandemic, even if your contact was limited or has now finished. You can share your views with us in this survey: https://bit.ly/maternsurv
Your feedback will help us to understand how we can improve experiences for women and their families.
The survey is confidential and does not ask you to share your name or any personal details. It should take about 10 minutes to complete, depending on how much you want to say.
If you want more information or would like help to complete the survey, please get in touch with us at: wakccg.engagementnhsnet
The survey closes on Friday 28 August.
Cancer screening - awareness surveys
West Yorkshire and Harrogate Cancer Alliance are working to transform cancer services in the area, to deliver better outcomes for patients and catch cancer earlier.

Cervical Cancer Screening survey: Females and anyone with a cervix, aged 25-64
Breast Cancer Screening survey: Females and anyone with breasts, aged 50-74
Bowel Cancer Screening survey: Males and females, aged 60-74
Access to urgent and crisis care for autistic people in West Yorkshire
We want to ensure that urgent and crisis care services meet the needs of people with autistic spectrum conditions. To do this we need you to tell us about what is working well and what needs improving.
This survey is for autistic people of all ages, their parents, carers or staff supporting individuals. This includes people with a diagnosis of autism or Asperger syndrome, people who self-diagnose/identify as autistic, and people on the waiting list for an autism assessment.

Second wave of Evidence-Based Interventions

Using your GP practice during the pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way GP practices work, using different ways to support patients to keep them safe at home. This has included using digital methods such as video and phone calls instead of face to face appointments. Some GP services, like clinics and health checks, have not been happening.
We are asking people who have used their practice during the pandemic to tell us what worked well and what could be improved.
