This was the inaugural session, attended by staff, board members, governors, staff and volunteers. We learned a lot from our first stab at it. I am definitely up for helping at future ones, not only to re-engage with patients and visitors but also, to put this learning into practice. I think the form needs reviewing to make the questions more user-friendly.
