Next user group meeting - all patients attending our service are welcome
|Tuesday 3 September 2013|
The Royal Free Marlborough Clinic, Pond Street (just up from Marks & Spencer) 7-9pm
We have an excellent patient user group however recently activity has gone quiet and we are losing momentum. We hope this will be an opportunity to boost the group again.
Dr Mike Youle will be doing a talk on 'HIV and Ageing'. This is a very important topic that is relevant to our patients therefore we hope as many of you as possible can attend. Light refreshments will be provided.
Due to the renovation works taking place in the ICDC, the talk will be taking place at the Royal Free Marlborough Clinic which is a five minute walk from our centre. We have an open waiting area there with seating. Sorry if it is a bit too clinical but it is the only place we can accommodate this number of people safely.
Please spread the word! We need a good turn out with a view to recruit more patients to our user group!
The patient user group acts as a channel for patient opinion.
The group’s aims are:
- To act as a catalyst for change and improvement, seeing new treatments and proactive life supporting care brought to our patients.
- To identify and review areas of concern to patients and specific areas for improvement, ensuring effective improvements are made.
- To act as a voice for patients but also to present opinions from management to the patient users.
- To review and comment on management planning and implementation of the HIV service and other non-HIV services provided to patients.
- To work with the service management and trust management to produce short-term and long-term plans for the HIV service.
