  •  Smokers who quit the habit will be in better shape to fight off infections - especially COVID-19. That's a key message in this year's national Stoptober campaign. The annual campaign sets out a 28-day stop-smoking challenge, with help and tools for smokers who are trying to give up. In City and Hackney, the Hackney Stop Smoking service continues to offer support to people wanting to quit. Talk to your GP surgery to refer yourself for help to quit. Find out more about the Stoptober Challenge here.

  • Take part in our short survey and help the NHS in north east London this winter by sharing your views about flu vaccination. Whether or not you had the flu vaccine last year, and whether or not you intend to have it this year, we would like to know what you think.

  • Friends and Family Test (FFT) 

    The NHS Standard Contract for 2014/2015 requires that providers of NHS-funded services undertake the Friends and Family Test (FFT). The FFT offers patients of NHS-funded services the opportunity to provide feedback about the care and treatment they received. We are asking patients how likely it would be that they would recommend the service they have received from us to their friends and family.

In order to participate, your Review can be submitted either by the 'Have your say - Friends & Family Test' link or via the link below
