Please help shape the future care of vulnerable families: A request from DHSC for your views 

  • Date:

Dear Colleague,

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has commissioned a rapid survey of commissioners and key providers about the ways in which COVID-19 has affected the delivery of services to vulnerable pregnant women and families with preschool children, and what needs to be done going forward.

You have been identified as a key professional whose views are extremely important in helping the government shape policy over the next few months, and we are inviting you to take part in this brief survey, to inform their thinking and shape what is needed going forward for vulnerable families.

At the end of the survey, if there is more that you would like to tell us, you will have an opportunity to opt into participating in a telephone interview. 

We appreciate that there are many demands on your time right now, but by taking just ten minutes to complete this survey you will be helping vulnerable families get the services they need in the future.

Please click on this SURVEY LINKwhen you are ready to complete the survey. The survey will stay open until 17th May.

Thanking you in anticipation

Yours sincerely,

Jane Barlow
