Have your say in how your hospitals work
The trust that runs Shropshire’s acute hospitals is asking members of the public to get more involved in the way services are delivered.
From tomorrow (21 April), for four weeks, The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) is giving people the opportunity to share their ideas and on how it can involve them more in what happens at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford.
Julia Clarke, Director of Corporate Services and lead for the Public Participation Team at SaTH, said: “We know that local hospitals are really important to our communities and we take this responsibility very seriously.
“We believe hospital services improve when we listen carefully to what people tell us and we respond to what they say. We want to give our communities a much bigger say in how we work and we think people will have lots of brilliant ideas to help us involve them more.
“We recognise it’s not always easy to get your voice heard and this is why we’re holding an open, honest and anonymous online conversation. This is an opportunity for everyone in our communities to share their ideas with us.
“You will also be able to read and comment on what others have shared, and vote on what you agree or don’t agree with.
“We will use the insight generated from this online conversation to inform our Public Participation Plan, which will be published in July 2021. We know some things need to change, and we need your help to tell us what we should be striving for and what we can do together to involve you more.”
The online conversation opens on Wednesday. Visit www.sathgetinvolved.org to register your interest in joining this conversation.
