Response from Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your nephew’s experience of the Accident & Emergency services and Ward 624 at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, and for your very kind words about our staff. We are delighted that your nephew had such a positive experience. Your comments have been passed onto the senior staff responsible for these services; they will ensure your feedback is shared with their team members. It is a real morale boost for staff to receive feedback like this from patients and their relatives. It means such a lot to know that the hard work, dedication and commitment of our staff is recognised and valued in this way. It is also very satisfying for staff to hear they have made such a difference to patients and made sure your nephew’s experience under our care has been positive. We hope that he is continuing to recover well. At University Hospitals Birmingham we are always keen to receive feedback from our patients and visitors as it helps us to ensure we are delivering the best in care. Please continue to tell us if things went well so that we can share this with the teams who cared for you. If we don’t get it right please let us know so that we can take action to make sure we get it right in the future. There are a number of ways you can do this, some of which are listed below; - Fill out our patient experience surveys; we have them for day case or short stay patients, inpatients, and those who attend the Emergency Department.

You may also be contacted by post and given the opportunity to complete a survey relating to your discharge from hospital or your outpatient attendance. - Fill in a Trust feedback leaflet, displayed in all patient and public areas – please ask staff if they are not easily visible. - Become a ‘mystery patient’ and tell us about your experience, you can do this just once or each time you attend the hospital.
