Dear <<First Name>>
Welcome to this important newsletter.
Women's Health Survey
The government have just launched a consultation for a Women's Heath Strategy.
Whilst women can respond directly to the survey, we at CII have decided to put in an organisational response on behalf of all our supporters with chronic illness and/or energy impairment.
In order to do this we have designed a survey which we are asking you to complete. The survey has different sections and you don't need to complete it all in one go. You can save your answers and go back to the survey again, when you have more spoons.
Whilst we would like you to answer all the sections, you don't have to do so.
The different sections cover:
- your diagnostic journey
- your relationship with health and care professionals, including whether you were believed
- access to health and social care services
- access to domiciliary services if you are housebound
- impacts of Covid 19 on health and healthcare
We have included some extra questions that are not in the government's survey. These relate to our experiences of not being believed or being denied treatment. These questions will enable us to understand the extent of the difficulties so many of us face.
All your responses will be kept confidential and will only be seen by our own team of researchers.
Please respond by end of 29th April.
