Collective Advocacy in the Royal Edinburgh Hospital

by Royal Edinburgh Hospital Patients Council

Patients’ Council Meetings are the main collective advocacy meetings in the hospital. Sometimes we have guest speakers who will talk about new plans or initiatives to improve the hospital. This is the time for patients to get together, share experiences, get informed, be a part of, and feedback directly to the Patients’ Council. It can be good to share common experience and feel supported, but the group is not a support group and we focus on how to improve care and treatment and take things forward. It is also a chance to be updated on the work of the Patients’ Council volunteers.
