Patient, Family and Friends Forum

Come and have your say at our improvement group!

Woodlands Hospice Patient, Family and Friends Forum

Did you know that Woodlands ‘Patient, Family & Friends Forum’ has been running for four years? 

It started back in March 2014 as part of a Hospice focus to give the people using our services, their families, friends or carers, and people from the local community and associated organisations, a chance to play an active role in the planning, development and evaluation of our services.

Since then the Forum has met 23 times!

It’s a really friendly and relaxed group that has contributed to many developments at the Hospice including:


  • Reviewing Hospice information leaflets (such as our inpatient ‘information pack)
  • Testing the food in our café (that was a nice day!)
  • Developing ‘Dignity Cards’, which were circulated to all our staff, volunteers and students
  • Contributing ideas for development in our Family Support Services
  • Reviewing our website and giving feedback for further improvement.

Our upcoming meeting dates for 2019 are:

  • Tuesday 12th March 2019
  • Tuesday 14th May 2019
  • Tuesday 16th July 2019
  • Tuesday 1st October 2019
  • Tuesday 3rd December 2019

All meetings will be held here at Woodlands Hospice in the Robin Suite. 

We start at 1:30pm and finish at 3:30pm. Tea, coffee and light refreshments are provided.

If you would like to join the group please contact Gill Harvey, Quality & Improvement Manager, on 0151 529 2299 Ext 6560, or email gillian.harvey@aintree.nhs.uk (usual working days: Mon, Tues, Wed, Thur).

…or why not just come along to the next meeting to see what it’s all about? We’d love to see you!
