We’re reviewing our visiting arrangements and we’d like to hear from patients, families, carers and our communities.
As part of a wider campaign, focusing on patient experience, we have launched a visiting survey and we want as many people as possible to have their say on the future of visiting at our hospitals.
Jo Loughborough, Lead Nurse for Patient Experience, said: “We understand how important it is for our patients to have visits from family and friends when in hospital. It can be a lonely and worrying time if you’re facing a lengthy stay in an unfamiliar place. Visits from those you love can boost your mood and keep you focused on getting better and returning home. We also know families are more reassured when they can see their loved ones in person.
“It’s important we hear from as many people as possible, to make sure any changes to our visiting arrangements reflect the needs of our communities and those we care for. Please take a few minutes to tell us what you think. One day this could make a difference to you or someone you love.”
Staff working at Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust, which runs hospitals in Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Goole, as well as community services in North Lincolnshire, will also be having their say.
You can complete the survey online and paper copies are available in our hospitals via our Volunteers. The survey will close on Monday 5 June.
