The New Hospital Programme would like to invite you to a 90-minute virtual workshop to hear about your experiences of pharmacy and receiving your medicines when being discharged from hospital, including how this could be improved.

The national New Hospital Programme team are running several patient and public workshops during 2024 to hear about your experiences using hospital services to help improve the designs and layout of future hospitals. This is to ensure those who use our hospitals are at the heart of the decisions being made.

Who this workshop is for

Anyone with lived experience as a patient, family member or carer in a general hospital setting is invited to join this session.
