There are various ways you can have your say. Throughout the year we will advertise specific areas of work we need your help to plan and deliver services. Use this section to find out what work is coming up and how you can get involved.
Improving access to primary care services
The six NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent are looking at how to give you easier and more convenient access to services you have at your local family doctor and GP surgery available outside of the usual surgery hours, including over the weekends.
We are interested in hearing your views about how, when and where you might choose to use these services outside of the usual surgery hours.
This survey will remain open until Friday 5th January 2018 and the information gathered will then be reviewed with current and potential providers of these services. Patient representatives will be involved in this work and in developing options for each area of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) services
We want to hear your experiences of receiving treatment from the ear nose and throat, or ENT, services. We want to ask patients, family members and carers about their experiences of the service and understand how they could be changed. For example have you recently had ear wax removal, or any services to do with hearing?

We are keen to understand more about your last NHS appointment and, where appropriate, what choice you had at that time. We are encouraging our patients to complete an online survey with this detail - find out more about Patient Choice, and complete an online survey.
