Please be aware that this public survey has now closed. 

From 8 February 2019 to 7 April 2019, Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) conducted a public consultation to understand patients’ views ahead of the plans for an Integrated Health and Care Hub being developed in Dunstable.

The full report and appendices can be found here.

A summary report can be found here.

The feedback from the consultation has been used in the development of the plans for the Hub.  The Hub which is a joint project, led by Central Bedfordshire Council, received planning approval in 2020 and will be developed alongside new residential accommodation for older people and is located at Court Drive, Dunstable.

Please be aware that this public survey has now closed. 

We held a survey from 3 August to 13 September 2020 on our proposal to become one single NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in line with NHS England’s Long Term Plan….

The public engagement document which explains what we were proposing and why is available here.

The findings from the survey formed part of our final submission to NHS England Improvement in October 2020 in our application to become one CCG by April 2021.

A summary of the findings can be found here and the full report of findings can be found here.

Survey – Your experience of healthcare during the coronavirus pandemic.  This survey is now closed. 

We wanted to understand your experiences of healthcare services during the coronavirus pandemic.

We would like to thank everyone who responded, a copy of the report is available to view here. 

This report has been shared with commissioners. The findings and the experiences respondents have shared will be used to inform the development and improvement of services as our BLMK NHS system prepares for winter 2020/2021 and further waves of the covid19 pandemic.

This survey is now closed. We would like to thank everyone who responded.

Women and everyone with a cervix, between the ages of 25 and 64, is eligible for regular cervical screening and invited to attend their screening every three years until the age of 50, when they are invited every five years.

Around 2,600 people are diagnosed with cervical cancer in England every year with around 690 people dying from the disease. This equates to two deaths every day.

It is estimated that if everyone attended screening regularly, 83% of cervical cancer cases could be presented. But unfortunately, cervical screening is at a 20-year low, with 1 in 4 eligible people in the UK not attending their test with a year-on-year decline.  In fact, across Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes, the 25-49 age group has a lower uptake than the national average.

To help us understand why people do not attend their cervical screening, we created a short and anonymous survey.
