Survey to give valuable social care information
Members should be aware that over the coming weeks a random survey of adult social care service users in the county will take place.
This will give essential information to help plan future services.
The survey will go out to a sample of around 1,300 adults who have received care and support services in the community and in care homes paid for or arranged by Gloucestershire adult social care.
The results of the survey will help the council, Department for Health and Social Care and the Government better understand how services affect people's lives.
The surveys will be posted to people in the week commencing 24 January and should be returned by 11 March.
This is an annual national survey carried out under the guidance of NHS Digital. Responses will be treated in confidence and service users will not be personally identified in the results, which are shared with the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS Digital.
This information should help members answer any constituent’s questions about why they have received the survey. Please do encourage anyone who speaks to you about this to take part and share their views, which will be treated in strictest confidence.
