The waiting game
Since March 2020 we have had a lot of feedback from the public telling us about delays, difficulties and changes in NHS and social care services, due to the Covid-19 pandemic affecting how these services were run. Healthwatch Kirklees and Healthwatch Calderdale worked collaboratively during 2021 to collect the experiences of people living in Calderdale and Kirklees during the Covid-19 pandemic who had experienced delays to health and social care for non-Covid related conditions since March 2020.

The Kirkwood got in touch with Healthwatch Kirklees to ask if we could support them to gather feedback about their services. They have recently rebranded and have many new plans for the service. The Kirkwood felt that working in partnership would help them to reach more people and, as Healthwatch Kirklees is an independent organisation, people would feel comfortable giving us their views.
