At the patients' meeting we were asked what would make things better on the ward. The involvement team asked us what would help so we came up with a few suggestions.
'We would love to go swimming as I struggle to do things. I don't walk very well but I would happily make a contribution to use a pool. I wonder why QMC doesn't have its own pool for patients'. Could we use a pool nearby such as the university pool on the doorstep of QMC?
'I would like to go out for more fresh air'.
'Can we have morning or afternoon appointments to see the consultant? At the moment we sometimes have to wait all day to see the doctor. I am a heavy smoker and this means I have to wait a long time to have a cigarette'.
We would like to get out and about a bit more, we once went to Highfields Park and had a picnic.
'More fresh air and walks outside would help.'
'I would like more exercise such as chair-based exercise and also standing exercise, maybe activities to music would be nice'.
