LOCAL independent consumer watchdog Healthwatch Dorset has been invited by the Royal Bournemouth Hospital to collect people’s views on the hospital and its services.

Healthwatch will be visiting the hospital a couple of days a month for the next six months – including this Friday, March 14, from 12 noon to 4pm – when they’ll be talking to people in the main entrance area and outpatients department.

You can also use #tellHWD to share your feedback on social media or go to healthwatchdorset.co.uk Patients, relatives, visitors and staff are invited to tell them what they think about the hospital and its services. Healthwatch will tell the hospital what people think is good; what people think is bad; what needs improving and how improvements could be made. Healthwatch will also be working with the hospital’s governors to develop other opportunities to hear from both the public and staff.

Paula Shobbrook, Director of Nursing at the foundation trust, said: “We are really pleased to be working with Healthwatch and look forward to a long term partnership that is committed to listening and continuing to improve the patient experience at our hospitals.

“We really encourage patients, or their relatives, to give us their feedback during their hospital stay so that, where needed, we can put things right as soon as possible.

“However, we want to build on the improvement that we have already made so it’s important we hear openly and honestly from all individuals who have experienced our hospitals.”

You can get in touch direct with Healthwatch or the hospital in the following ways:

master plan says...

You get a mixed bag at bmth hospital
My wife gave birth there and they was amazing not just for her and the baby but towards me too (not like poole were it seemed I was in the way )
Waiting times in some departments can be long. Had to wait nearly 3hrs for an eye appointment.
But A+E is a joke broke 4 bones in my foot at littledown last year while playing football checked in at 830 and still wasn't seen by 1230 manage to drive to poole in a lot of pain but went straight in! It's not the first time I've had football injuries that needed medical attention at bmth but have come to realise if you want to be seen quicker your better off going to poole
