“Attitudes and behaviour are bigger barriers than stairs and doors”.
For a number of years the Trust has had a Disability Steering Group. It meets four times a year to discuss how to improve the Trust services, accessibility and information distributed to patients, potential employees and carers/relatives.
Before you come to hospital, if you have any worries or queries you can contact us using the phone number on your appointment or admission letter or you can contact our Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS).
