Lancashire LINK are looking for the views of people who have used NHS services since 1st April 2008.

This is your chance to feed into an annual report on NHS services in Lancashire. The views go to the Healthcare Commission – they are looking for both positive and negative experiences.

From the LINK letter:

The NHS and the County Council in Lancashire together spend very large sums of money on health and social care services every year – these are big, important services which affect almost everyone’s lives. So, it is important that we all have a say in how they make their decisions.
