Maintaining privacy and dignity

National surveys of NHS patients have identified concerns about the lack of dignity whilst in hospital. Issues have been centred on a lack of privacy, mixed sex wards, how we address people and how we communicate progress.

This Trust is committed to ensuring that our patients feel that they are treated with respect and that their needs are truly understood and met. All of our customers have the right to expect treatment and care delivered in a professional and courteous manner and in an environment that allows for privacy and the maintenance of modesty.
