Huge thank you to Sharon Bell and the Surgical Day Case Unit City Hospitals

Sharon Bell a member of Sunderland People First helped us this morning to produce an accessible leaflet for Community Dentistry and the Surgical Day Case Unit at City Hospitals Sunderland. Sharon posed for us while we took photographs for a leaflet we are in the process of making to help people with learning disabilities understand what it is like to come into hospital.

Sharon was a great patient and fortunately did not really have an operation today!   Thank you to you all !

Rate My Health Check

If you have had an annual health check lately or you are going to be having one this year we would really like you to tell us about it.

You can do this in two ways.

After you come out of the annual health check fill in the questionnaire and post it in the box at reception. Ask the person who did your check for a questionnaire or you can print one off here or in the Going to the Doctors section.

You can also fill it online in the Going to the Doctors section.

Its really important that we hear your views so we can make sure these checks are good.
