Patient and Carer Experience

Our patients, service users, carers and communities are at the centre of everything we do. There is no better or more important way of improving our services than by listening to what individuals think, feel and experience throughout their care journey and beyond.

We aim to involve patients, carers and the public in everything from what services we provide to how they are delivered and how we can improve them in the future. We provide opportunities for patients, carers and families to share their experiences and tell their stories.

You can get involved by:

Join a Network

If you are a member of staff, patient, service user, carer or organisation and you want to share your experience of a particular service area you can join our Patient and Carer Experience network. We regularly contact our network with opportunities to participate in events or workshops aligned to their area of interest. 

Share Your Story

Patient stories help us bring experiences to life and are an invaluable way of helping us to understand how the services we deliver impact you. By sharing your story you can help us understand what matters to our patients and services users and help those that deliver or plan your care see first-hand the impact of their actions and decision.
