Response from Marie Helebert, Patient Services Officer, Patient Services, Heart of England Foundation Trust

Dear Anonymous

thank you for your post regarding your recent patient experience at the Ultrasound Department at Good Hope Hospital.

I am so pleased to read that you found the receptionist to be friendly and kind. It is reassuring to know that you were kept informed when the appointments were running late, and that when you were called through that the Sonographer made you feel comfortable and explained everything that was happening, clearly. I am sure you were relieved to be advised of the findings immediately as this helped to put your mind at rest.

I will be thrilled to ensure that your feedback is highlighted to the Radiology Management Team who will communicate your kind comments to the Ultrasound Department staff who work very hard to provide a positive patient experience to our patients.

I hope my actions are acceptable and once again thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback, it is very important to us.

Kind regards

Marie Helebert
