You said, we did
When you make a complaint or leave a comment or a compliment, we want to learn from what you tell us.
In response to your feedback, here are some of the changes that we have made over the past year.
A relative was unhappy with a decision not to fund Continuing Healthcare; they did not receive a response to letters, emails and phone messages left for the Health Assessment and Review Team.
The Health Assessment and Review Team apologised for the poor service and it has taken many steps to ensure that all contacts with the team are dealt with promptly in the future.
Relatives were unhappy that it took a considerable time to replace a broken wheelchair that they felt could have been repaired.
We contacted North Bristol Trust, the wheelchair provider, who apologised for the poor experience. The chair was not a standard design so it was more difficult to provide a temporary replacement. They also confirmed that a repair would not have been safe in the long term.
A patient was unhappy that the decision to approve funding for their hernia repair took so long.
The Individual Funding Team apologised for the difficulties with the process, which has now been reviewed and improved.
