Two public service providers are currently seeking our views, presumably with the intention of shaping and refining their priorities in the face of serious funding cutbacks.
The first is the South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, which is inviting those who have used or called upon its services in recent times to complete its online survey.
Writes Monica Moro: "It is important that SCAS, as an NHS Foundation Trust, takes account of feedback and views from members in our local communities who have used/use our emergency and non-emergency services."
"We would be grateful if you could also spare a few of minutes to complete our survey; it's easy, straightforward and, above all, provides an opportunity for you to tell us what you think about our services."
Call 01869 365126 for more information.

The deadline for feedback is Monday 8th June 2015
The second group seeking feedback from local people is the National Rural Crime Network which is looking to understand your experiences of policing and crime in our area.
Catherine Dunn writes: "Have you suffered financial loss, been concerned or worried about safety or feel the focus is generally on urban areas?"
"The aim is for the National Rural Crime Network to use the results of the survey to improve awareness of crime in rural areas and encourage crime prevention, inform government policy and help ensure funding is not disproportionately lost from rural areas."
"The results from the survey will inform the police and their partners in their work, helping to ensure the right services and resources are available to rural communities. For the 10-15 minutes it will take, your response will make a difference to policing, crime and community safety in rural areas. You can complete this survey anonymously."
