We are committed to engaging, listening and involving patients in their care and the delivering services. One element of this is our drive to complete independent surveys with patients and carers who are currently using our services. The results of this feedback is developed into an action plan which the Patient and Public Engagement Team will take forward.
Physical Health Inpatient Ward Survey/Audit
Following NICE and CQC guidance and key lines of enquiry we developed a 14 question survey. In partnership with Healthwatch Hampshire who carried out the survey and completed a report. Volunteers and Healthwatch Hampshire met with patients whilst they were staying on 4 of our inpatient wards to ask those questions and hear their experiences.
