A Doncaster MP is backing a scheme, which encourages people to tell their NHS story.

Don Valley MP, Caroline Flint, is urging people to share their stories about their experiences of the NHS with Doncaster Healthwatch.

Ms Flint met Healthwatch Ambassadors Dorothy Head and Kay Kirk at the Ruddle Centre open day in Braithwell.

She said: “It was great to meet Dorothy and Kay helping to promote Healthwatch and encouraging people to tell their stories about their experience of the NHS.

“As an MP, I help many people who raise concerns about the NHS treatment they or a relative have received; but I also receive letters from people expressing their thanks for the help and support they or a loved one received from the NHS.”

“I hope more people will tell their story of NHS treatment – the good things and the not so good. Your story could be anything from whether you find it easy to get a GP appointment or whether a family member had life-saving treatment. At Healthwatch they feed this back so that NHS services, can be checked and improved. And it is important that NHS managers know when services are going well, first hand from patients.”
