"Patient Opinion sparks an interest in patients"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

(as a volunteer/advocate),

We took Patient Opinion information to Millbrook and explained how all patients could get their voices heard! Staff mentioned increasing Internet availability for patients, as well as using the paper-forms.

Many patients raised an issue around medication. It was implied that doctors do not provide enough information about different medications. This lead us to talk about the Communities of Interest (women's medication group).

There was a big interest in the Deaf Awareness group - one patient suggested that there should be BSL interpreters at the theatre! Good idea!

Overall, Patient Opinion and Involvement seemed to spark an interest in many patients, and will hopefully prove to be useful and successful!

Dear Kingsley Ward

It was interesting to read about the issues raised at the meeting.

I will be contacting the ward manager for comments.

Many thanks
