There are a numbers of agencies and organisations seeking feedback and views of parent carers.
Below we have listed selected consultations which parent carers may wish to consider offering their views to.
Independent review of hospital services for children in Lincolnshire
You can share your views by completing the survey through the following link by Friday 13th July 2018 :
Thank you for taking the time to share your views and experiences, please pass the survey onto anyone else who may wish to share their views.
The RCPCH is an independent organisation, separate from the Trust, Clinical Senate, government and the NHS. We are keen to hear your views directly but will also ask the Trust to share with us what people have told them so we have as much information as possible about what the service means to those who use it or work in it.
Why we want to hear from you
We want to know how families use the services when a child is unwell, and what arrangements in future will ensure that babies and children continue to receive safe, effective care, given the current difficulties in recruiting medical staff with the expertise to provide some of the more complex care.
What you tell us will be read carefully but remain confidential to the review team and we will summarise the responses we receive in our report for the Trust so that they are anonymous and you will therefore not be identified.
Please note that if you have a complaint or question about your child’s care then please contact the trust directly here . We are unable to respond to or resolve individual issues.
If you would like to receive updates on the progress of the review, then please email us on email@example.com.
Consultation on Childcare on Lincolnshire
We need your help! Like all other local councils, we have a duty, as far as is reasonably practicable, to ensure there is sufficient availability of childcare for the children of working parents (aged 0-14 years, or up to 18 years for disabled children). The duty includes parents who are studying or training for employment.
Throughout the year we work to do whatever we can to support local childcare providers to offer childcare services parents need and want.
Part of this work includes an annual assessment report of the sufficiency of childcare. Like all of our past assessments, further to our childcare sufficiency report for 2017 we now want focus on the views of parents and carers. Our online survey asks if parents and children are using childcare, and if they do, what they think about it. We’re also asking if there are things that prevent families using childcare, and what more is needed.
This will help us to plan new childcare, or support the 100’s of local group providers, nurseries, and childminders to consider changing their offer to meet parents’ needs.
We need your help in getting this message across to parents so that they can be signposted to engage with an online parental survey.
We have attached some social media messages that we invite you to use on your website and social media platforms and posters for you to print out and add to notice boards etc.
The findings of the survey will support us to plan these services, and to work with childcare providers to support the childcare needs of working parents, and parents studying or training for work.
The survey is open from Monday 4th June until 30th July 2018. You can find the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/LincolnshireParents
If you have any queries regarding the survey please contact Jill Laughton.
