Feedback, complaints and compliments
A patient satisfaction audit undertaken 2 years ago showed that overall we were providing an excellent service to our patients and that they found it very beneficial having multi-disciplinary clinics where the Consultant, Nurse and dietician were in attendance.
'Could not have managed without the team,'
'very supportive and good listeners.'
