“Have your say” survey
On 9 October we are launching a survey to invite all residents in Seaton and the surrounding areas to complete a questionnaire on the future of Seaton Hospital and local health services. The questionnaire will be available to complete online via www.seatonhealthmatters.co.uk/survey as well as by paper.
If you need to complete the paper questionnaire instead of online the questionnaire will be available from a high number of places in your area so keep an eye out for the advertising posters to pick one up and find out where to return it.
If you care about the future of Seaton Hospital and local health services please take about 10 mins to complete the survey online or on paper as the higher the response rate the more accurate the picture will be of the local views.
We are hoping for a high response rate as the data gathered will be invaluable in adding value to what we are trying to achieve by identifying any service gaps that could be potentially filled by a service operating from Seaton Hospital. We have prepared a business plan to make the current site a Health & Wellbeing Hub that retains the existing services that operate from the site, but potentially adds other services to utilise the empty space.
Your opinion and views will be invaluable and we want and need all members of the communities covered by this survey to participate.
