Feedback Newsletter

Welcome to Feedback – your Health Involvement Network bulletin. Feedback has been developed so that we can keep you updated on how your views are helping us to shape, plan and develop the NHS services that the hospitals and other NHS organisations provide. We also aim to keep you informed about upcoming engagement opportunities and key NHS news. We know from you that some people want a brief update while others want more detail. Each section of Feedback therefore provides a brief overview together with links or contacts for further information.
