Patient Stories call for volunteers to share experiences of local services (children's and older people's)
The NHS is working on plans to improve the quality of health services across south west London.
We'd like to speak to patients to understand more about:
- how care is currently delivered,
- what the challenges are, and
- how services could be provided differently to improve care - including what healthcare staff are needed to deliver these.
To help us do this we have developed some patient stories which we would like to invite people to comment on. These are:
- A child with a number of long-term conditions, including: asthma, eczema and/or early development delay.
- An elderly man who lives independently and has been admitted to hospital three times following falls.
We would like to hear from people who have experienced these types of care or know someone who has, specifically:
- Parents/guardians caring for children with long-term health conditions; and
- Adults over 65 who have had multiple hospital visits in the past year.
If you are interested in sharing your experiences with us, we can arrange to speak to you on the phone or meet in a place convenient to you. Conversations should last no longer than an hour.
If you would like to be involved, please get in touch as soon as possible as we would need to speak or meet with you by 18th March 2016.
