Having spoken to many patients and their carers over the years (as a nurse and researcher), Lynn knows only too well how powerful it can be to share your stories about a healthcare experience. This is particularly so, if someone has had a bad experience and writing it down can feel like a weight has been lifted.
We want to hear your stories about how well or how bad you think healthcare professionals have spoken or interacted with you or someone close to you.
Absolutely. We can use your first name if you like in the blog, or we can change it. We won’t mention any individual services or staff directly.
Firstly, we read your story. If we have any questions, we may come back to you with some questions. This is usually by email. Consequently, we might adapt your story slightly to add in a bit more detail. We then turn your story into a blog, and let you read this before we post it on the website. We want you to feel happy and comfortable with what we have done.
If you are responding to us from our YouTube channel ‘Let’s Talk Health’ we may be able to use your story to help us generate an animation to help other young people learn from your experience.
There are two main things we want to learn from your experience(s).
These can be good or bad learning points.
Your stories will be shared on our social media platform to support learning. We may also use your stories in our teaching of healthcare professionals. What better way to learn from real life experiences? Staff really value this.
