PERFORMANCE: Primary Care Organisations across the North East are inviting members of the public to have their say on how equality can be improved in the NHS.

People are being encouraged to complete a questionnaire as part of a public engagement exercise, launched on 1 August, to help promote equality and fairness for all in the local NHS.

Questions include:

  • What could your local NHS do better to meet your needs?
  • What actions would you like to see in the Equality Strategy?
  • How can we improve the way we communicate with you?

Ben Murphy, equality and diversity lead for North East Primary Care Organisations, said: “All the information collected will be will be used to inform the Equality Strategy for Primary Care Organisations across the North East.

“By completing the survey people can help us to understand the needs of the different communities in which we serve.”
