The country’s new chief inspector of hospitals is inviting Redbridge residents to have their say about the services they receive.
A listening event is due to take place tomorrow to coincide with the beginning of a formal inspection of the Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust.
Members of the public will be able to hear more about the inspection process and discuss the care they have received at King George Hospital.
Residents are also urged to pinpoint improvements they would like to see made.
The news comes after Prof Sir Mike Richards, the chief inspector, announced in July that the new inspection teams will be considerably larger. Sir Mike said: “The new inspections are designed to provide people with a clear picture of the quality of the services in their local hospital, exposing poor or mediocre care as well as highlighting the many hospitals providing good and excellent care.”
The listening event will begin at 6.30pm and take place at Redbridge Town Hall, High Road, Ilford.
The inspection findings will be published by the Care Quality Commission later this year.
