Patient Stories

During our board meetings held in public, we invite patients to talk to us about their experiences of local health care – referred to as a ‘patient story’.

Patient stories are a powerful way of bringing experiences to life and making them accessible to other people. Our board listens to and focuses on the patients overall experience rather than just a clinical condition or as an outcome. These stories help to understand what is important to local people, what works well and what can be improved. Please click on the links below to view the latest patient stories.

If you would like to tell us your story please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to email us.
