Have your say: dignity in hospital care

If you're aged 55 or over and have been an inpatient (staying for one night or longer) at a Bristol hospital in the last two years, we'd like to hear about your experience of receiving care. A Somali translation of this information is also available.

We are no longer accepting submissions for this project. If you would like to share your feedback on hospital care with us, please click here to fill in our feedback form.

When people receive care in hospital, they should be treated with dignity and respect at all times.

We want to hear from people who have spent one or more nights in hospital for medical treatment. Your feedback will contribute towards improving local health services, giving a voice to patients, and increasing awareness of the importance of dignity in hospital.

Over the coming months, we'll be running a series of online discussion groups, with both patients and hospital staff. We are keen to hear from older people from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic communities. We are able to offer a £20 high street shopping voucher to thank you for your input and time.

To find out more about our research project or if you would like to take part, please contact Anna King, Projects Officer, at anna@healthwatchbristol.co.uk.

If you would prefer to speak to someone by telephone, please call the Healthwatch Bristol office on 0330 0553251 and leave a message with our admin team (option 6).

All feedback will be kept confidential, and will be anonymised in any project reports.
