If you are HIV positive we would very much like to hear your view about visiting your GP. Please take a few moments to fill in this survey. It should take less then ten minutes to complete. We do not ask for any personal information other than your post code if you are happy to give it.

This survey has been compiled by HIV positive patients and it is designed to help us better understand both your relationship with your GP and how you would like to see Primary Care services develop in the future.

If you prefer to leave comments about the service you get from your GP rather than filling out the survey you can add your comments here.

Have tried filling in this survey, but question 3 cannot be answered correctly with reference to question 2, as it only allows you to fill in one answer rather than filling in all appropritae answers, which it is aking you in the question.

Hope this helps

Peter

Good survey though

The Care and Support Alliance is conducting a review of how social care services have changed in the last year. If you are someone who uses care and support services, or if you care for a friend or relative who does, we want to know how the services you/they use have changed and what impact, if any, this has had.

The care and support services we are reviewing include help and support for people to do day-today things, such as living in their own home, working, cooking, shopping and personal care. Services might also include independent living support like equipment to help with mobility, counselling and occupational therapy, home adaptions, day care services, breaks and other support for carers and telecare and telehealth services (technology like personal sensors and alarms in the home).

This survey does not apply to medical treatment or nursing care provided by the NHS or ‘continuing care’ packages.

The National Disabled People's Poll aims to amplify the voices of disabled people and their families and ensure that your experiences and opinions are heard by politicians, the media, companies and other decision-makers.

With only a few weeks to go before the General Election our first poll is focusing on disabled people's opinions of politics, political parties and the voting process. Despite being a large group of voters, disabled people are often overlooked by political parties. By participating in our Politics Poll you will be helping to raise the profile of disabled people and to increase awareness of disabled people's priorities and concerns.

The survey should take around 20 minutes to complete and the research will be conducted according to the Market Research Society's Code of Conduct.

Your responses will remain completely anonymous. If you have any questions regarding this survey, please contact Tom Black on tom@comres.co.uk or 0207 340 1418.

Information on personal travel in Great Britain from the National Travel Survey. This web page provides personal travel based data from the National Travel Survey. This is a continuous survey designed to monitor long-term trends in personal travel in Great Britain. The survey collects information on where, how, why and when people travel as well as factors which affect personal travel such as car availability, driving licence holding and access to key services.

The latest information from the National Travel Survey

Latest update: 29 July 2010

Summary of latest key results

  • There has been a steady falling trend in trip rates since 1995/97, while average distance travelled per person per year remained relatively stable until 2007, then has declined slightly over the last two years.
  • Overall in 2009, there were an average of 973 trips per person per year, 1,070 stages, 6,775 miles travelled, and an average trip length of 7.0 miles.
  • Most of the fall in overall trips rates between 1995/97 and 2009 can be accounted for by a fall in shopping, visiting friends at private homes and commuting. The last two years has seen a large fall (9%) in the number of commuting trips.
  • Since 1995/97 the proportion of men with a full driving licence has remained relatively stable at around 80%, but it has continued to increase among women, from 57% to 65% in 2009. Licence holding also continued to grow among older people.
  • Trips by car (driver and passenger) accounted for 63% of all trips made and 79% of distance travelled in 2009.
  • On average, females make more trips than males, but males travel much further per year.
  • The average annual car mileage has decreased as the number of cars per household has risen, falling from about 9,700 in 1995/97 to 8,420 in 2009. In particular, there were large falls in business and commuting mileage.

Kairos in Soho (KiS) and the In Our Name project partners,London Friend, PACE and the Metro Centre, are excited to announce the launch of the The In Our Name Almanac Questionnaire.

The questionnaire is for not-for-profit lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) groups, organisations and projects based in and/or serving Greater London.

We would be very grateful if you could please spread the word about the questionnaire to individuals and networks engaged in LGBT organising.

The information produced from the questionnaire will form the basis of the 2010 London LGBT Voluntary and Community Sector Almanac -a new comprehensive annual print publication about the London LGBT voluntary and community sector (VCS).

The Almanac will provide up-to-date statistical and strategic information about the diverse LGBT voluntary and community sector in London, so that LGBT organisations can access an information base for lobbying, planning and development, and envision their strategic context. The Almanac will also give organisations the opportunity to showcase their work to others in the sector. LGBT VCOs, funders and infrastructure organisations will receive a free printed copy of the Almanac.

Organisations known to KiS will have been sent a dedicated link to make completion of the questionnaire more efficient in organisations with more than one representative.

This will be the first comprehensive mapping since the publication of the PiP Report - the first mapping of the London LGBT sector in 2006/7 conducted by KiS. At this particular time, at a relatively high point of legislative and policy attention to LGBT equality, alongside significant economic turmoil, we have an opportunity to fully monitor the impact of the changing political and economic climate on the LGBT sector as a whole, and on diverse LGBT communities of identity, through the production of a year on year report. These findings will be useful for monitoring the impact of the changing political and economic climate on voluntary and community organisations working in equalities and diversity.

 

It is hugely important that LGBT organisations complete the questionnaire.

The In Our Name Almanac Questionnaire is available here: http://www.kairosinsoho.org.uk/almanac.asp<

If organisations would prefer to complete the survey over the telephone, or in hard copy they can ring Kairos in Soho on 020 7437 6063.

On behalf of KiS and the In Our Name project partners thank you very much for your valuable support.

When you think about your income, do you feel rich, poor, or just plain average? Many of us probably have no idea - or the wrong idea - how we compare with the rest of the population. But here, just by answering a few short questions, you can find out where you lie in the Great Britain income distribution, and how many people are better or worse off than you.

Working this out involves a number of conceptual issues, including deciding what measure of income to use and what account to take of the needs of different types of households. We recommend that you begin by reading a brief guide to these issues by clicking here< now or at any time on the question mark to the left. Alternatively, click on the link provided to start.

Launch of the second wave of the National Survey of Charities and Social Enterprises

The second wave of the National Survey of Charities and Social Enterprises has been launched today, giving charities, social enterprises and voluntary and community groups in every local authority area an opportunity to have their voices heard.

This largest ever survey on the sector was first run in 2008 and over 49,000 organisations responded giving a wealth of information on the factors supporting organisations’ success, including : opportunities to influence local decisions, the availability and nature of local funding and income, and satisfaction with local support and guidance.  This information has proved invaluable to the sector and local statutory bodies in identifying and addressing key local issues, and improving the local environment in which the sector operates.

This second wave of the survey aims to take these results even further – building an accurate picture of the current environment and assessing the progress made since the first wave of the survey – in order to provide citizens, communities and local and national government with the information needed to continue to drive real change in local areas. 

Nick Hurd, Minister for Civil Society, said:

“This survey represents a real opportunity for organisations to put their views across on issues that affect them, communicate with local authorities and their partners, and inform and influence national and local policy. I urge all those organisations who receive the survey to respond to ensure their voice is heard.”

Over 110,000 organisations have been selected to take part and response from all sizes and types of organisations is essential to ensure the results build a representative picture of the views of the whole sector, and give information that will carry real weight at the local level.  We therefore would encourage all invited organisations to complete the survey by post or online at www.nscsesurvey.com< [External website] by the 27th September 2010.

Full results of the second wave will be published in early 2011 at www.nscsesurvey.com< [External website]

Future Water Policy “an issue that affects all of us”, says Environment Minister

Members of the public can have their say on how the country’s water supplies are managed in the future.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has today launched an online survey, asking people to give their ideas ahead of the Water White Paper.

The Water White Paper, due to be published early next summer, will set out the Government’s plans for the water industry. It will address challenges such as future resource needs, charging and affordability.  

Water issues recently hit national headlines with a drought and hosepipe ban in the North West, just six months after severe flooding, prompting discussions about water conservation and availability. Concerns have also been raised about the cost of water bills.

Environment Minister Richard Benyon said:

“There’s a growing population and a changing climate putting more pressure on our water supplies.

“Recent events have shown just how fragile our water supplies are and how we need to manage them properly in the future. It’s an issue that affects all of us, so we want to give everyone the chance to get involved in drawing up solutions.”

The Water White Paper will look at:

  1. Securing water resources for the future;
  2. Increasing choice and competitive opportunities, driving innovation, improving customer service and value;
  3. Creating a modern regulatory system that protects customers and minimises regulatory burdens;
  4. Ensuring fair and affordable water charges; and
  5. Incentivising water conservation.

The launch of the online survey comes during World Water Week (5-11 September), an annual event for the planet’s most urgent water-related issues.

Notes

The survey can be found at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Water-WP<.

Twenty years after privatisation, the White Paper will provide an opportunity to focus on the new challenges facing the water industry and will set a clear direction and policy framework for the future. It will also reflect the conclusions of the Ofwat review announced earlier this month.

The White Paper will be a vehicle to drive forward the commitment in the coalition agreement to “examine the conclusions of the Cave and Walker Reviews, and reform the water industry to ensure more efficient use of water and the protection of poorer households”.

The Water White Paper will cover England only.

Introduction to the consultation

The world of state funded social care provision is changing and the way in which The NHS Information Centre runs its national social care user experience surveys needs to change to match this transition. Therefore we are consulting on a new user experience survey and would welcome your views.

The information on this page details what these changes are, and gives you the opportunity to offer your feedback on how this change will affect you.

For more detailed information you can read the full consultation document (doc 515KB)

Who is this for?

This consultation is aimed at users of this information which will include:

  • Central and Local Government
  • Academics
  • Charities and other third sector organisations
  • Private companies
  • Members of the public

Background to the changes

Previously people were assessed by their local authority as to whether they were eligible for a state funded service and those who were, received the relevant service commissioned by the LA. Now however, there is a move towards service users who are eligible for a service receiving funding via a personal budget, which they then use to purchase their own services. This process is called ‘personalisation'.

As a result of these moves, the current programme of social care user experience surveys is far less relevant now than it was in the past. There is now more emphasis on whether the services chosen by the user enable them to achieve their desired outcomes.

The new survey will be introduced for 2010-11 and will be called the “Adult Social Care Survey" (title to be confirmed). This survey will cover all users of state funded social care, regardless of the service they are receiving. For the first time, it will include service users in residential care in a national survey, and a version of the questionnaire has also been developed for those with learning difficulties to encourage people to respond.

This consultation enables you to:

  • Raise concerns you have over the loss of information from the old service specific surveys
  • Help to shape the report for the new survey

What next?

This consultation is open to anyone – whether as an individual or representing an organisation.

Please read the following 3 consultation documents which should inform your feedback:

  1. Consultation Document (doc 515kb)
  2. Annex A - (previous surveys) (doc 509kb)
  3. Annex B - (current draft questionnaire for new survey) (doc 750kb)
  4. Annex C - (timeline) (502kb)

Next, if you wish to offer any feedback please follow the link below and complete the survey:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/social_care_survey

The closing date for the consultation is the 12th November 2010.

Please ensure that you include your contact details on any documents you contribute to ensure we can contact you to inform you of the outcome of the review.

Confidentiality and disclaimer

The information you send us may be passed to colleagues within the NHS Information Centre, Skills for Care, other government departments or related agencies. Even where confidentiality is requested, if a request for disclosure of the consultation response is made in accordance with the freedom of information legislation, and the response is not covered by one of the exemptions in the legislation, the NHS Information Centre may have to disclose the response, in whole or in part.

What is the Life Opportunities Survey?

The Life Opportunities Survey compares how disabled and non-disabled people participate in society in a number of areas.

These areas include:

  • education
  • social participation
  • transport
  • use of public services
  • work.

The Survey aims to identify the reasons why people do not take part in work or leisure activities, or why people experience difficulties accessing public services.

How the Life Opportunities Survey works

The Survey is conducted by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). It runs throughout the year, with interviews taking place in a random sample of households across Great Britain. Different sectors of society are represented, ensuring that its results reflect the general population.

The Survey will interview the same people in future years. This will help government understand how people’s lives have changed and to monitor whether life opportunities are improving.

Survey results and outcomes

The Life Opportunities Survey began in summer 2009. The first set of interim results from the survey will be published on 9 December 2010.

The government will use the information to:

  • measure the levels of participation across different areas of life
  • identify the reasons why people’s opportunities may be limited
  • target policies and resources where they are needed.

This information will improve services for disabled and non-disabled people. It will ensure that more disabled people can participate in society.

Qualitative research

Two qualitative research projects were commissioned to complement the Life Opportunities survey. Qualitative research was used so that people can explain the opportunities and barriers they experience in their own words.

One project focused on people’s access to goods and services and their choice and control over different life areas. The other is designed to include people for whom the full survey may not be accessible.

The two qualitative research projects will be published in December 2010.

NAT (National AIDS Trust) are doing some research about the impact that HIV-related symptoms have on daily life, including work.  We are particularly interested in symptoms that are not constant, but vary over time. 
 
We have created a short (10 question) online survey about HIV-related symptoms for people living with HIV to fill in anonymously. The survey can be accessed here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/G89L86D<
 
The findings of this research will help us advocate for the needs of people living with HIV who apply for illness and disability-related benefits.  In particular, it will inform our recommendations to the second annual independent review of the Work Capability Assessment (the second Harrington Review).  NAT have been asked to sit on a working group which will recommend changes to the Work Capability Assessment (WCA) to more accurately and fairly assess people with fluctuating conditions, such as HIV.
 
We would also welcome other evidence about the impact of fluctuating symptoms on the lives of people living with HIV, including case studies and details of other research in this area.  It would be particularly helpful to hear about the experiences of people who have HIV-related symptoms that vary who have applied for Employment and Support Allowance and gone through the WCA.
 
For more information about the survey or the working group, or to send case studies and other evidence, please contact Sarah Radcliffe on sarah.radcliffe@nat.org.uk<.

Thank you for your interest in Stonewall's Gay and Bisexual Men's Health Survey

Click here to take the survey now<

What's it about?

This is a survey conducted by Sigma Research for Stonewall on the health needs of gay men, bisexual men and other men who have sex with men.  The survey will ask you a range of questions to do with your health including:

  • Diet, general fitness and exercise
  • Smoking, alcohol and drug use
  • Mental health
  • Cancer screening
  • Long-term health conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes
  • Domestic violence
  • Experience of discrimination
  • Experience of using NHS services

This survey is for men who live in Great Britain.

Why are we doing it?

This will be the largest ever survey of gay men’s health.  We know quite a lot about gay men’s sexual health, but very little is known about the wider health needs of gay and bisexual men.

In 2007, researchers for Stonewall conducted a similar survey of lesbians’ health needs<.  Prior to this survey, it was widely assumed that lesbians had no specific health needs.  However, this groundbreaking survey uncovered a shocking range of previously unidentified issues.

By repeating the scale of this survey with gay and bisexual men, we can determine if there are any similar gaps in knowledge regarding their specific health needs.

The findings of this research will equip healthcare providers, policymakers, campaigners and gay and bisexual men themselves to ensure their health needs are being equally taken care of. 

If you have any questions or require a printed version of the survey, please contact Stonewall's Information Service on
08000 50 20 20.
