Welcome to Monkey’s page on Patient Opinion!
Have you been looked after in a hospital or clinic recently?
If you want, you can tell everyone on Patient Opinion what it was like. Your story will help other children know what to expect. And it might help the hospital or clinic make things better.
You can say
- Why you needed to be looked after
- Where you had to go
- What you liked about it
- What you did not like about it!
If you have a great idea on anything they could change to make it better, you can add that too!
Keeping you safe online
To keep you safe online, please don’t put your real name in your story.
How old do you have to be?
It doesn't matter how old you are, Monkey would love to hear from you. You might need a grown up to help you.
If you are 12 or under, please ask your grown up if it is OK to put a story on Patient Opinion.
What will Patient Opinion do with your story?
After you put your story on Patient Opinion, we will check it, then put it on the website. Then everyone can read it. How fantastic!
If you accidentally put your real name in we will take it out. Don't worry, we won't share your name or email with anyone.
We will tell the hospital or clinic about your story on our website. It might make them smile, and it might help them think how to make things better for the next little monkey who visits them.
They might even reply to your story on Patient Opinion, so you know you have really made a difference.
Information for grown-ups
Patient Opinion was founded in the UK in 2005 and since then has grown to be the UK's leading independent non-profit feedback platform for health services. Patient Opinion Australia (POA) was established in 2012 and, similar to its UK counterpart, is registered as an independent not-for-profit charitable institution. Patient Opinion is about honest and meaningful conversations between patients and health services. We believe that your story can help make health services better.
Our mission is to carry the experiences of patients into the heart of health and care services.
And Patient Opinion isn't just for children! You can share your own stories too.
