Each month we feedback on the themes and issues people have contacted us about.
We share this information with you and with Health and Care providers to help develop and improve services.
Our monthly report provides an overview of the enquiries that we have received via our Information & Signposting service, which includes information on the number of enquiries received, as well as the method of contact, main themes, and location of enquiries.
This month we heard:
- that dentistry remains a key cause of concern for many local people, with people reporting difficulty finding NHS dentists accepting new patients and accessing emergency dental care.
- from people reporting concerns about poor access to GP’s including ongoing frustration with long wait times on the telephone to book an appointment.
- people enquiring about further information relating to care homes and advice on complaints.
Tell us your experiences
You can leave a review of health and care services in East Sussex each and every time you use them via our Feedback Centre. This only takes a few minutes and helps commissioners, providers and Healthwatch understand how services are performing.
The Healthwatch East Sussex Information and Signposting (I&S) Service helps people to access the right health or social care service or organisation for their needs. In addition, the I&S service also enables people to share their experience or make a complaint about services they have used.
