Views sought on experience of discharge from hospital

The Public Health Agency (PHA) and the Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) are asking those who have been discharged from hospital during the past two years to share their experience through the recently launched 10,000 MORE Voices programme, to help shape how care is designed and delivered.

10,000 MORE Voices gives people an opportunity to provide feedback on their experiences of accessing health and social care services by asking them to ‘tell us their story’.

Mary Hinds, Director of Nursing and Allied Health Professions at the PHA, said: “10,000 MORE Voices aims to involve the public in shaping future healthcare services across Northern Ireland. Through the information we receive, we can identify what really matters to people when they use our health and social care services. We can highlight areas of positive experience as well as areas for reflection and learning. The contribution of patients and clients is fundamental to ensuring that services are planned in a way which will deliver care and is centred on the needs of patients, their families and carers.

“We want people to tell us about their experiences of health and social care and to highlight the things that were important to them. The information we receive will help us to direct how health and social care is shaped and delivered.”

If you or someone you know or care for has had been discharged from hospital during the past two years then 10,000 MORE Voices would like to hear your story.
