A group of patients are helping to raise standards of care in local hospitals.
Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has formed a Patient Panel, which has now met for the first time.
Eleanor Carter, patient experience facilitator, said: “There was a lot of creativity and energy from the panel members, who discussed what they wanted to achieve and work out how they could make a positive impact on their NHS services.
“They reviewed our national inpatient survey results and put together an action plan on how they could help improve areas.”
