Visiting care homes during COVID – Healthwatch Oxfordshire seeks the views of residents’ relatives

Healthwatch Oxfordshire have launched a project aimed at hearing about the experience of care home residents and their families since the covid-19 outbreak began.

Do you have a relative living in a care home in Oxfordshire? If so, Healthwatch Oxfordshire would like to hear about you and your loved one’s experiences during COVID-19.

The county’s independent health and social care watchdog would particularly like to know what contact you’ve been able to have with your relative since the first lockdown in March, and what impact this has had on you and them.

You can share your experiences by completing a short, anonymous survey:

 Healthwatch Oxfordshire will use what it hears to help those who make decisions about health and social care understand your views, so this is your chance to have your voice heard!

 If you would like a paper copy or a translation of the survey you can contact Healthwatch Oxfordshire on 01865 520520 or at hello@healthwatchoxfordshire.co.uk
