The NAS is taking part in a national project with the CQC (Care Quality Commission) called ‘Tell us about your care’.
This project aims to make it easier for autistic people and their families to share their experiences of health and adult social care services directly to the CQC.
A webpage been set up so that anyone can tell CQC about the care they receive, good or bad, so this can help improve care across England.
The ‘Tell us about your care’ webpage link is: http://www.cqc.org.uk/content/people%E2%80%99s-experience-care-what-we-want-know-and-why
You can give feedback when accessing any of the following services:
• GP practices, including walk-in centres and out-of-hours services
• Ambulance services
• Community mental health services
• Clinics providing services such as family planning and slimming
• Community care and support services, such as district nurses and health visitors
• Care homes
• Home care agencies
NB this is not a way to make a formal complaint or for whistleblowing. There are other ways to contact the CQC to do this, detailed on the webpage.
