"Patient Opinion - involving the community"

About: Care Opinion Mansfield & Ashfield

(as other),

We are students from Ashfield sixth form working on a placement at Sure Start. We have just been in a meeting with Jayne and been discussing how to promote Patient Opinion to the local community we have discussed things such as business cards, leaflets and displays but the main idea put forward was to create an app for most smart phones. This is because most parents, carers and families now own a smart phone or tablet.

Jayne thought this was an excellent idea and has sent an email discussing it to Amy Gaskin to promote the idea. We think this is great as it can be used on the go and it is quick and easy. This is also good for people who may forget any ideas they would like to put forward.

Thank you any feedback would be great about our suggestion.

Dear Ashvol

What a great idea! Jane and Amy will get onto this straight away - thanks for suggesting it - it's always useful to increase the choices that people have about how to feed back on our services. Hope you are enjoying your placements.

Thank you Julie it is great to hear something back, and we are very excited to think that our idea might be seen by thousands of people. It is great to give something back to the community.

Thanks students for your ideas and enthusiasm. I know the team at Kirkby are benefitting from it. I loved the suggestion for a patient opinion app and I look forward to seeing how it can be done. Maybe we could then create a children centre ap..............?!

Thank you for involving us on this project on promoting Patient Opinion. It would be nice if the children centre had an app, that would be a great way to promoting the centres and getting more information out there to people.
