What will be happening in the NHS as you sit down for your Christmas lunch?

Over 70,000 doctors, nurses and health staff will be keeping the NHS going over Christmas

NHS staff up and down the country tell us that positive feedback really boosts morale on the wards, especially over the festive period. Patient Opinion has collaborated with healthcare information experts Dr Foster to find out what goes on behind English hospital walls when everyone else is busy tucking into their turkey.

We are sharing this first ever breakdown of hospital activity on Christmas Day hoping that it will inspire patients and carers to say thanks to the staff delivering health care this Christmas.

On Patient Opinion, it’s simple for patients, carers and families to share their stories about care this festive period. Feedback is then shared with the right person in the NHS, whether the Head of Midwifery or the Chief Matron, who will respond and, if needed, improve that service. But most of all – it’s the quickest and easiest way to say thank you!
