Share Your Covid-19 Health & Care Story

Over the next 6 weeks we will be encouraging members of the public in Derby and Derbyshire to tell us about their COVID-19 health and care story.

COVID-19 has created some big and potentially long-lasting changes in the way that people across Derbyshire look after their health and care needs.

We want to hear from as many people as possible about what those changes have been, how they have impacted their lives both positively and negatively, and what lessons we can learn moving forward.

We will be asking people to tell us their ideas for how they would like to look after their health and care in the future. We will ask people what they have stopped doing during COVID, what they started doing differently and what they plan to carry on doing. This might be about how they use health and care services or about how they look after their own health and care.

The more people that take part, the more we can learn so please encourage everyone you know to take part in this important opportunity to shape health and care across Derbyshire.
