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.

Hear more about our research

Join Catherine Hale and Dr Anna Ruddock at a Webinar hosted by Liverpool University, on Friday 9th of April at 12 noon.

They will discuss the emancipatory disability research of the Chronic Illness Inclusion Project and why our invisibility as a cohort of disabled people is bound up with systemic disbelief of our experiences. Interrupting this cycle of invisibility and disbelief is key to promoting equality and human rights for people with chronic illness.
