Patient representatives needed
Every NHS patient should be cared for with compassion and dignity in a clean, safe environment. Where standards fall short they need to be reported so they can be improved. PLACE assessments take place each year and it is your opportunity to get involved as a Patient Assessor to help drive improvements in the care environment.
You will receive training to carry out the assessment. Travel and parking expenses will be refunded back to you and you will be provided with refreshments throughout the day and lunch where available.
You can email the Trust to get in touch, and also opt in to receive updates.
