What difference does my feedback make?

The South East London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has actioned many of the most common themes that arise from our feedback reports.

For example, when we reported that there could have been more clear information on the vaccination programme, a letter was sent to all Royal Borough of Greenwich residents including information about the booster vaccination, eligibility and how to book the vaccine.

Will my feedback be anonymised?

Yes, we will anonymise your feedback and only ever collect personal data when we have explicit consent to do so. We will not publish your full name in our feedback reports.
