Do you have experience of using health and social care services during the coronavirus pandemic?

Healthwatch Stoke-on-Trent and Healthwatch Staffordshire, the local independent champions for health and social care have worked with Together We’re Better including Stoke-on-Trent City Council and Staffordshire County Council on a collaborative piece of work to devise a coronavirus impact survey, which asks members of the public about their experiences of health and social care services during the coronavirus pandemic. The survey largely focuses on coronavirus experiences, long-term health conditions, mental health and digital engagements.

Face masks and coverings have been in the news again this week, with more evidence emerging about their effectiveness in helping to stop the spread of the virus. In the UK, around 23% of the public use face coverings when out and about, which is far lower than other countries. Even in the USA, where there is divided opinion regarding face masks, the number of people wearing them is at about 63%.
