Hospital chiefs urge Barking and Dagenham residents to have their say on healthcare
Hospital chiefs are urging residents to have their say about health services across the borough.
Chief inspector of hospitals, prof Sir Mike Richards, wants people to tell his inspection panel what they think of the services provided by Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, at an open meeting on Tuesday, October 15, at Redbridge Town Hall, Ilford from 6.30pm.
The points raised will help inspectors decide what to look at when they visit Queen’s Hospital, Romford, and King George Hospital, Ilford — which both serve residents in Barking and Dagenham — in October, he claimed.
“The new inspections are designed to provide people with a clear picture of the quality of the services in their local hospital, exposing poor or mediocre care as well as highlighting the many hospitals providing good and excellent care,” Sir Mike said.
“It is vital that we also hear the views of the people who have had care at either of the hospitals run by the trust, or anyone who wants to share information with us.”
To attend the meeting fill in an online form at cqclisteningevents.org.uk or telephone 03000 616161 to book a place, though you can turn up on the evening without having registered.
