Leicester City patients are being asked for their personal experiences and stories of Outpatient Radiography Services provided by Leicester’s Hospitals, to help the local NHS identify how these services can be planned and delivered more efficiently.

Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in partnership with Healthwatch Leicester City is inviting patients, carers and service users who have been referred for a Radiography appointment at one of the three Leicester Hospitals to help shape the future of these services for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) residents by sharing their own personal experiences.

Radiography Services include a wide range of imaging services provided by UHL such as x-rays, breast screening, ultrasound, CT and MRI scans. The services are offered at all three hospital sites.

This survey forms part of a wider initiative involving Healthwatch Leicester City and Leicester City CCG focusing on a number of services provided by Leicester’s Hospitals. Patient stories and survey feedback will assist in identifying how those services could be improved and better targeted to meet patient needs.

Professor Azhar Farooqi, GP and Chair of Leicester City CCG said: “Your story and survey feedback will assist in identifying how services could be improved and better targeted to meet patients needs.”

Micheal Smith, Development Officers at Healthwatch Leicester City said: “As the pressures on the Health Service continue to build, it is more important than ever for members of the public to share their experiences. We want to encourage everyone to share their positive stories, as much as any problems they faced.”
