Two matrons want to know how staff can improve the experience of care at outpatient appointments.

Matron Jackie Brunton and Assistant Matron Emma Jeanrenaud are leading the project to understand what improvements need making.

Jackie said: “Our staff care deeply about the service we provide and are taking an immense interest in this work.

Patients currently attending appointments are being asked their views but anyone, or their family, who has had a recent experience of outpatients can take part:
