It is the trusts policy to make the ability to give feedback as accessible to as many people as possible. Once the story has be placed on our site it is reviewed and then published enabling to trusts to view to story and from there they will be able to read and respond to the posting.

The most recent change was prompted by a suggestion that fasting on the day of an Angiogram was unnecessary. This gave rise to discussion amongst clinical staff who have accepted that some patients maybe able to eat on the day of their Angiogram and that all of this would be communicated in their appointment letter.

However the 152 stories shared thus far give an overwhelming endorsement to the high quality of the Nursing and clinical staff at the hospitals covered by the trust. In fact for standards of medical and nursing care the trust rates as 4.1 out of a mximum score of 5.
