Healthwatch Portsmouth were in action at the Fratton Family Festival on Sunday. We spoke with 55 people and received feedback from 50 people on health and social care services in Portsmouth. We had three surveys available for visitors to the stall to provide feedback on; maternity services, personal health budgets, and, differing ways of accessing routine primary care services.
People who came along to enjoy the family fun day were pleased to see the Healthwatch Portsmouth stall, manned by staff and volunteers, in action and gathering feedback. An impressive 91% of visitors to our stall were keen to take part in the hands-on survey to cast their vote to show what they would choose to do if their usual GP surgery /was unable to provide them with a timely appointment.
