Thank you for taking the time to answer a few questions about mixed sex wards, it should take no longer than 2 minutes.

The questions have been put together so that we can try and gain a preference that people might have between the options.

The definitions we are using:

Mixed sex wards: communal areas are mixed, but there is still a female only communal space provided, and each bedroom area (dormitories* in some wards) is single sex.

Single sex wards: these are male or female only wards, communal spaces are also single sex.

*from 2026 all dormitories on wards will be changed to single bedrooms with ensuite toilet/shower regardless of whether they are mixed or single sex.

Confidentiality

Nobody will be identified by completing this questionnaire.  The infomation will be used anonomously to inform plans for the wards. The infomation will be shared in working groups focusing on this work and will remain anonomous.

This questionnaire closes July 2022
