The Patient and Carer Engagement Group gives a voice for the views of patients, carers and families to help develop and improve Hospice services.
The group meets for two hours every eight weeks on a Wednesday afternoon at the Hospice. Attendees discuss a range of topics, from reviewing patient leaflets, policies and procedures to getting involved in any improvements to the Hospice facilities. They also ensure that the views of patients and their families are collected and acted upon.
The members of the group are all Hospice service users, including the Chairman, so they are in a good position to offer their views on how the services are delivered and could be improved.
The group is supported by our Patient Services Director and a volunteer who acts as a secretary, and its work is reported to the Board of Trustees.
We are always keen to welcome new members, so if you are interested in finding out more about our Patient and Carer Engagement Group, please contact the Chairperson, Angela on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01622 792200 ext 226.
