Help us improve the aftercare and support for people diagnosed with meningitis

Picker are working with UK charity Meningitis Now on an important national survey that aims to improve the aftercare and support provided to people who have been diagnosed with meningitis.

We need people who have been in hospital with either bacterial or viral meningitis over the last five years, and were 16 years of age or older at the time, to take our survey. The insights from the results will ensure that people who are diagnosed with meningitis receive care that is responsive to their needs and preferences.

Bev Corbett, Meningitis Now’s Director of Information and Support, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity to influence future practice and have your say on what would improve your experience of discharge from hospital, after-care, and support.  We know that follow up and aftercare for adults who have experienced meningitis is often inadequate. Therefore, this survey will help us better understand people’s experiences and provide evidence to inform and improve aftercare and support provision in the UK. If you’re able to help us by taking part we’d love to hear from you about your experiences.”

Bev added: “In particular the survey will aim to understand experiences of the hospital discharge process and information provision, along with the longer-term information and support needs of adults with a recent experience of meningitis.
