Patient Experience in BAME Communities

As part of Black History Month, the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust have developed a survey to explore patient experience in Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, following national data which shows people who describe themselves as BAME report poorer patient experiences compared to people who describe themselves as White. 

Whilst it is acknowledged BAME is a term that covers a wide range of people with a very diverse range of needs, the survey aims to understand what the barriers to a positive patient experience are and what the Trust can do to best support our BAME patients.

If you are happy and able to do so, can you please complete this short survey. It can be accessed via Survey Monkey.

Telephone and online appointments – Have your say

As a result of the pandemic many services across health and social care have changed how they are delivered and new ones have been developed. In order to offer services as safely as possible people have been offered appointments over the phone or online by video or using an online form. We want to know your views and experiences of this new way of working. Click here.

Tell us about your experience of leaving hospital during COVID-19

Giving feedback, both good and bad, can help improve services. To make room for the sudden need for more beds as a result of the coronavirus, the NHS changed the way it discharged people from hospital. But what was your experience? 

Take just 10 minutes to tell us about your experience and help the NHS know how to improve care for all. 

Out of hours palliative care survey

We would like to know about the experiences of those who have received ‘out of hours’ palliative care since the beginning of March 2020. Out of hours is during evenings, weekends (from Friday evening to Monday morning), and public holidays. We would like to gain understanding of the needs and experiences of palliative care patients and their carers in order to ensure that out-of-hours care is both effective and efficient. Complete the survey here.

Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals are installing Changing Places at both sites and are asking people who would use the facility, to support the application by completing this survey:
