NHS Long Term Plan Survey 2019

Thank you to all Reading people who took the time to share their views on healthy living, NHS priorities and your own care needs. The survey closed on 30 April 2019 and we published findings in the summer. We are now waiting for the local NHS body (Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshrie West Integrated Care System) to publish its final response to the survey. This is due out mid November 2019.
The more people share their ideas, experiences and concerns, the more services can understand what works, what doesn't and what people want from care in the future.
