This is a forum where three times a year patients (BAKPA and non Non BAKPA members) are invited to meet with the Renal Management. It is chaired by Dr Rommel Ravanan, Clinical Director.
The Forum is also responsible for interviewing candidates for the appointment of Key Staff. Patient opinion is respected and valued and many decisions are based on patient preferences where affordable and medically appropriate.
All information is in the public domain and available under the Freedom of Information Act.
Patient participation is always welcomed and encouraged. In the renal ward there are comment and feedback cards that can be filled in confidentially. Patients are encouraged to fill in these cards so that the unit can get a realistic picture of what actually happens to make improvements when appropriate and possible.
