We collect your stories
Part of the LINks' job is to monitor local services. One way of doing that is to listen to people's stories about health and social care. We've teamed up with Patient Opinion - an independent website about your experiences of health services - so that we can hear more about what people are saying about health services across our LINks' areas. We read all the stories posted on Patient Opinion about the services in our areas - and this helps us to hold services to account.
