Patient and public involvement at the RNOH

The NHS belongs to the people.

This means putting patients at the heart of everything we do and involving current and former patients, their relatives and carers, and the wider community in the development of our services.

The RNOH is committed to developing a culture of involvement and participation through receiving and listening to the opinions of our patients and the public and by offering the opportunity to get involved in the work of the hospital.

We are currently have two ways for you to get involved.

If you are able to visit the hospital regularly (once a month or more), please take a look at our Patient Group. The Group carries out a number of activities at the hospital, including ward visits, reviewing patient leaflets, attending committees, and helping with mock inspections and audits.

If you live too far away to be able to attend regularly, please consider our Patient Partners. The Patient Partners get involved remotely, through email, telephone, and video conferencing. This can involve virtual discussion groups, surveys, and other distance feedback forms.

You can find more about the Patient Group and the Patient Partners by clicking the links on the left. Or to find out more, please email
