NHS Sunderland CCG are committed to collecting the views from a range of Sunderland residents, including patients, the public, and carers. This includes listenting to the views from protected characteristic groups.

For all engagement and consultation activities, we try to collect demographic information. This includes through surveys, from people taking part in focus groups, or those attending public meetings. This helps us to understand who we are engaging with.

Completing these forms is completely voluntary, and so the number of people providing this information can be less than the number of people who attended an event or complete a survey.

In 2018, we looked at the questions we were asking people. Please see below for some example questions we will be using in our consultations and engagements:
