"Interviewing for new staff at Rampton Hospital"
Posted by michael16 (as ),
I am an involvement volunteer from Rosewood Centre, Ollerton.
Recently I have been working with patients on the womens' service at Rampton Hospital to form a patient panel to interview for staff nurses. We had a session working on the questions and then two patients and myself attended the interviews.
We all had a great day and came out feeling that we had made a difference.
Here are some quotes from the patients:
" I think it is good to put the patients on the panel cuz it gives them a good opportunity to help pick the people who will be working with them, and it gives them a sense of achievement "
" I found it exhilerating and a sense of responsibility and achievement. It gives us as patients a say in who is involved in our care. Plus it's good experience for when we leave"
