PATIENTS are being asked to give their opinion of the care they have received from a Hampshire hospital.

England’s chief inspector of hospitals is inviting members of the public to tell an inspection panel what they think of the services provided by University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.

Their views and experiences will help inspectors decide what to look at when they inspect the trust.

The formal inspection of the trust, which runs Southampton General Hospital, will start on December 9.

Heart, head and certain other specialised services are offered by the hospital, which are not available at Queen Alexandra Hospital, for patients in the Portsmouth area.

A listening event takes place on December 9, at the Mercure Southampton Centre Dolphin Hotel, in High Street, Southampton, at 6.30pm.
