'Please share your views on hospitals'
Column by Sharon Kidd, ULHT patient experience and PALS manager
Your opinion matters to us, which is why we’re asking for your views about the county’s hospitals to help with future improvements and to make them the best they can be.
We want to understand your perception and how you form opinions about United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT) hospitals which are based at Lincoln County Hospital, Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, Grantham and District Hospital, to help us make improvements. The trust also runs some services from County Hospital Louth.
It’s anonymous and your views are important in helping improve how local hospitals care for patients.
We are continuously trying to improve for you, however, there is still much more that we can do to make our hospitals better.
Quality of patient care is our number one priority and this survey helps us to understand public opinion.
All Lincolnshire residents are invited to have their say on the reputation of ULHT through an online survey. You don’t have to be a patient, you just need to have a view.
Before we can build on our reputation, we want to find out what our public think, how trustworthy and credible we are, if we spend money wisely and if people think we provide high quality care.
It is important that we measure our reputation, as it affects our ability to respond to the wide range of needs from our patients, their carers and families, as well as helping us to recruit the best staff. The survey should only take a few minutes, but will provide us with important information.
The online survey is available to complete here at www.surveymonkey.com/r/SSLZ3KQ. Please share with your friends and family too.
The survey is open until Wednesday, June 19, 2019.
