Oxford University Hospitals - Patients Open visiting survey

We would like to know your views about the introduction of an open visiting policy for the Trust. There is a strong evidence base for the benefits of open hospital visiting, and Chief Nurse Sam Foster is passionate about improving flexibility around visiting within Oxford University Hospitals; "We understand how stressful being in hospital can be both for the patient and their loved ones and know how much of a boost to a patient's morale and recovery visits from friends and relatives can be." (Sam Foster)

As part of an engagement process we are consulting with staff, patients, their friends, family and carers via surveys. 
Please could you give us your views:

The survey will close on Tuesday 22nd May.

If you need any support to complete the questionnaire or if you would like to give feedback via an alternative method, please contact the Patient Experience team on or by calling 01865 740 892.
