Sharing people’s experiences of health and social care.

Surveys from thousands of our resource users say that by accessing the experiences of others they found information in our resources they hadn’t found elsewhere. They also felt:

Less alone from hearing others in their situation
Better prepared for medical appointments
Better able to manage their own health
Less inclined to need a medical appointment
Reassured by hearing others experiences.
“Research is of no use unless it gets to the people who need to use it”

Chief Medical Officer (CMO) for England
