Hearing families’ experiences of neonatal care is so important to us to help us improve and develop neonatal services in our region. We share your experiences and feedback (always anonymously) with neonatal staff and medical professionals as a valuable learning and monitoring tool, and as a way of celebrating the successes.
How to share your experience
If you would like to feedback on your experiences of neonatal care in the region, you can complete an online feedback form. Click here to find the feedback form for your neonatal unit.
Writing about your neonatal journey gives you an opportunity to share your experience in your own words. Your story will be shared anonymously with the relevent neonatal unit to help with learning. Parent stories are also shared (anonymously) in clinical board meetings to help ensure parents remain at the centre of our work. You can find some Parent Stories here.
You can share your story by completing this online form
Or you can email Georgina at Georgina.email@example.com
Please do not worry about spelling or grammar, it is not important, just speak from the heart.
If you would prefer to talk, please give me a call, text or email and I can tell you how to send a video or audio recording of your story.
