Our aim is to improve health and social care services in Central Bedfordshire.

HW-ItStartsWithYou_LogoTo do this we need your feedback about local GP surgeries, hospitals, dentists, pharmacies, opticians, social care, emergency care and community based health teams. With this, we are able to inform, liaise, influence and, if necessary, challenge decisions and plans.

For all of this, we need your help!

Please help us by sharing your experiences of all or any of these services by clicking on the button below.

Tell us when things are going well and when they’re not, so we can do something about it.

Help make sure more people get healthcare information in the way they need it.

The Accessible Information Standard gives disabled people and people with a sensory loss the legal right to get health and social care information they can understand and communications support if they need it. But, is the standard being delivered by services and does it go far enough?

Our campaign ‘Your Care, Your Way’ aims to:

  • Find out how well health and care services are delivering the accessible information standard.
  • Make sure that, if the standard covers you, you know your rights.
  • Find out who else has problems understanding information about their healthcare and needs to be covered by the standard.
