They would like to speak to people (aged over 18), who have recent experience of medical and/or surgical services as inpatients or outpatients at St Marys Hospital Isle of Wight. 

The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England and would like to hear about your experiences of St Marys Hospital. 

The subjects they would particularly like to hear about are:

  • Care at weekends and at night
  • Communication and information about treatment
  • Levels of kindness and professionalism of staff
  • Prescriptions
  • Privacy and Dignity on the wards

This will be a great opportunity for people to share their experiences, whether that's positive or negative, to celebrate good practice and improve services for the future. St Marys Hospital provides health services to the Island population of around 140,000 poeple and is responsible for acute care, ambulance services, mental health services and community services. 

If you would like to attend please

email to register your interest

or call 01983 522609 and we will be in touch to let you know if you have been allocated a place. If you are unable to make the event and would like to share your experience with us please get in touch

Please note there are a limited number of places available and preference will be given to those with direct experience of using hospital services. 

Do health and social care services know what you really think?

Share your ideas and experiences and help services hear what works, what doesn’t, and what you want from care in the future.
