"Involvement-Who Say's?"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

(as the patient),

Nottinghamshire Healthcare say's it's big on Involvement!

In my opinion this is only when it suits them. I feel that they have an agenda to tick boxes and as long as you conform to what and how they want something then it's ok!

It's my opinion that many service users who have been involved and have subsequently become ill have been left by the way side. I don't feel this is 'Involvement'.

This beggars belief when the Trust say's it's 'Clients' are central to everything it does!

Response from Involvement Team , Involvement & Experience, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

We are sorry that you do not feel that Nottinghamshire Healthcare takes involvement seriously. We have a large number of people who use both of our Involvement Centres and the feedback we receive from them indicates that they get a great deal out of their involvement and it actually helps them in their recovery. We try to be authentic about what we can do with involvement. We also try to support people who work with us when they become unwell and are sorry that you do not feel this happened for you. If you would like to take this further then please speak to Paul Sanguinazzi, Head of Involvement on 0115 969 1300 or contact PALs on 0800 015 3367. As always, we value the feedback even when it is negative.
