VIEWS are being sought on whether people know which NHS services are available to them.

An online survey has been put together by the Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to find out what people do when they have a health problem and why.

Dr Jim Hogan, a Portsmouth GP and chairman of the Portsmouth CCG, said: ‘Some years ago, if you were ill or injured, your choices were pretty limited – most people either saw a GP or went to hospital.

‘Today there are many more options, but we need to get a better sense of how well people understand the choices they have, and how they make decisions about getting NHS care when they have an illness or injury.

‘We hope that people living in or around Portsmouth will complete our quick survey, because those views can help us get a clearer picture about how our services are being used at the moment.’

People have until July 21 to respond to the online questionnaire, visit surveymonkey.com/s/urgent-care
