Have Your Say

We want you to have your say and influence your local health services. When major changes are being considered, we need to know what local people think and your views are integral in helping us make decisions.

Consultations and surveys give you the opportunity to let us know how you feel about suggested changes and by taking part, you can help us to improve the NHS services we commission.

On this page you can find details of current consultations and surveys relating to both local and national health services. Please do take the time to fill them out – every response is really valuable.

Patients and carers or family members - have your say on patient safety

As part of the ongoing Development of the Patient Safety Incident Management System (DPSIMS) project, NHS Improvement are running a survey to help them:

  • understand how the public want to use national systems for learning from errors;
  • plan further engagement with patients and carers, and;
  • prioritise which parts of the system they should start prototyping first

Help shape guidance on prescription of over-the-counter items

NHS England is launching a public consultation on reducing prescribing of over-the-counter medicines for 33 minor, short-term health concerns.

In the year prior to June 2017, the NHS spent approximately £569 million on prescriptions for medicines which can be purchased over the counter from a pharmacy and other outlets such as supermarkets.

NHS England has partnered with NHS Clinical Commissioners to carry out the consultation after CCGs asked for a nationally co-ordinated approach to the development of commissioning guidance in this area to ensure consistency and address unwarranted variation.

The intention is to produce a consistent, national framework for CCGs to use. The consultation closes on 14 March 2018.

Have your say on proposed 'opt-out' organ and tissue donation scheme in England

The Department Health is seeking views on proposed plans to make it easier for people to give consent to be an organ donor. The consultation specifically looks at how much input families have in a deceased relative's donation decisions, whether exemptions to opting out are needed and how these proposals may affect certain groups depending on age, disability, race or faith. The consultation closes on 6 March 2018.
