Here at Healthwatch, we want to hear about all experiences, whether they're good, bad or somewhere inbetween. It's no secret that compliments are just as important as complaints and highlighting what services are doing well is so important. That way, they can do more of it! Anything you have to say, no matter how small, could make a big difference. Your voice really does count. Our local NHS services need your help. Maybe a nurse gave you some reassurance when you felt anxious? Maybe a dentist made you smile? These dedicated members of staff deserve some recognition for going the extra mile.
Please get in touch and share your experiences with us. You can do this via twitter, facebook, email, telephone, or in person!
"We are always quick enough to comment on healthcare when it's to be negative, let's be honest most of us do it but today, i had potentially one of the nicest doctors i have ever met. She was lovely, respectful, and compassionate and i thought she deserved to know that the visit was helpful so i wrote a compliment about her. I bet that will make this Doctor's day to know she had made at least one of her patients feel better and given her the recognition that she deserves. We are always quick to comment on the bad and never quick to comment on the positives, or great service we have received. But just someone hearing they are doing a good job will motivate them to carry on doing a good job. Let's be positive!" - Anonymous female (aged 24)
