User Advisory Group
What is the User Advisory Group?
The User Advisory Group is a forum of people who have experienced St Nicholas Hospice Care’s services first hand.
What does the Group do?
The Group brings together the views of patients, families and carers who are using or have recently used the Hospice’s services. It is organised by an experienced, independent facilitator – not part of the Hospice’s Management.
When does the Group meet?
Four/Five times a year, on a weekday.
Who can be involved in the Group?
Anyone who is using or has recently used any of the Hospice’s services can become a member of the User Advisory Group. This includes carers, family and friends as well as patients.
Issues that the group has previously contributed to include:
- Refurbishment of the Hospice ward and therapeutic rooms
- Hospice car parking
- The speed of referrals from hospitals and other organisations
- Hospice publicity
- Ways for patients and families to get involved
