Have your say

Managers at Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital have called on patients to tell them what they think of services at a forthcoming series of meetings across the area.

Officials hope the sessions, which begin next week, will let them explain the changes made to the trust since it was put into special measures last October, as well as allowing members of the public to have their say.

And the trust insists that the meetings, which are billed as public listening exercises, are important to help make sure it gives patients the service they deserve in the long-term.

The hospital’s chief executive, Dr Manjit Obhrai, said: “We have been through some challenging times and we are working hard to improve the services we offer our patients.

“However, we really need to hear the views and opinions of those who use the hospital if we are to get it right for the future.

“This is an opportunity for anyone who wants to help shape their local hospital services to come along and meet the Trust directors in an informal setting.

“It also gives us a chance to explain some of the new developments that have taken place.”

The first of five such sessions is due to be held at the Oasis centre in Wisbech next Wednesday, March 5, starting at 6.30pm.

Subsequent events, which will also start at 6.30pm, have been scheduled as follows:

Wednesday March 12: Lynn Town Hall

Wednesday March 19: Swaffham Assembly Rooms

Wednesday March 26: Hunstanton Town Hall

Wednesday April 9: Fakenham Racecourse.

All are welcome to attend the sessions.
