Help make A&E more sensory friendly

The Urgent Support Team are spearheading a 'Beyond' funded project for Cheshire & Merseyside. The initiative aims to enhance the accessibility of NHS Paediatric Accident and Emergency Departments in the Countess of Chester Hospital, Wirral University Teaching Hospital (Arrow Park), Macclesfield District General Hospital, and Leighton Hospital for children / young people with sensory and communication needs.

By gathering feedback from young people (aged 0-16) and their parents/carers, we aim to ensure that our project plans are informed by their unique experiences to propose effective and tailored support in Paediatric Emergency Departments. Their role in the project is crucial.

Please see the attached posters for young people/parents and carers, which contain QR codes to our questionnaires and corresponding links.

Parent Questionnaire:
•  - Leighton (YP)
•  - Macclesfield (YP)
•  - West Cheshire (YP)
•  - Wirral (YP)

They would be grateful if you could take time to complete the questionnaires and provide feedback.
