Patient Experience

We would like to hear about your experience on the ward.  We use iWantGreatCare, a health reviews website, to collect feedback on what patients think, monitor it and action where possible.

Go online to or, if you'd prefer, ask the ward staff for a paper form to complete. It is very important that we hear from you about what has happened during your time with us as this will help us to improve things for other young people in similar circumstances, thank you.
