Topic Based Reports

Our topic based reports strengthen the voice and opinion of patients. Topical reports can be distributed, presented at meetings and used to look at the issues. They can also say what solutions patients think will work.

During October 2018 – May 2019, the Patients Council received funding to do additional work on patient experience in the REH. This work has now finished and we want to thank everyone who took the time to share their experiences with us.

The four reports below let you see what we did, what people told us and what the REH Patients Council think the key message are.

Strengthening the Patient Voice: I have a voice, hear meResults Report, May 2019: This report tells you what people said about their experience of being in the REH.  The key messages that the REH Patients Council has taken from what was said are at the end of this report.
