It will soon be time to give your opinions on the biggest health shake-up plan Huddersfield has seen in decades.
And a questionnaire, composed by the local NHS organisations behind the Right Care Right Time Right Place, will soon be doing the rounds.
The 12-page questionnaire is split into six main sections covering changes to emergency care, urgent care, planned care, maternity services, children’s services and community services.
Respondents have seven pre-written answers they can pick, e.g. ‘I will receive the right care’ or ‘I will be seen and treated quickly’.

There is also space to write any further comments, concerns and recommendations.
Interestingly, local health chiefs are particularly interested in learning about what you DON’T like about their proposals.
In each of the questionnaire’s main six sections, respondents are first asked what they dislike and if anything is missing from the plan.
They are asked how the proposals will ‘negatively affect’ them and what would improve them.
Respondents are also asked what they like about the proposals.
There is a final question asking respondents if overall they agree, disagree, neither agree nor disagree or don’t understand the proposals.
The format of the questionnaire and the style of the questions and answers has been shaped by a pre-consultation ‘engagement’, according to its authors.

It reads: “Some people have already told us what they think is important to them.
“We have used this information to help us shape our preferred proposal and the questions we are asking in this consultation, and now we need to know what you think.”
The survey can be completed online or filled in by hand and returned to a freepost address in Stoke-on-Trent.
The data will then be collated and the numbers crunched.
