‘Putting Patients First’ an invite from your local NHS


Members of the public in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire are invited to the local event ‘Putting Patients First’.

The event, to be held on Wednesday 16th July, between 9:30am – 3:30pm at the KC Stadium in Hull, will allow members of the public to help shape the work of the local NHS in relation to ensuring a sustained focus on improving quality is maintained.  

Members of the public with an interest in the local health and care system are welcome to attend the free event and lunch and will have the opportunity to take part in workshops which will help develop a healthcare system which puts patients first. 

Hilary Gledhill, Director of Quality and the east Riding of Yorkshire CCG Lead Nurse says: “‘Putting Patients First’ is an opportunity to hear how local health and social care services are working together to promote care which is effective, compassionate and responsive to patients’ needs. We hope that members of the public will take this opportunity to work with us to ensure their views and experiences of local health care inform how we take quality improvements forward across Hull and East Riding.”

Amanda Pye, Chief Nurse at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust says: “In the wake of the Francis Report, the focus is very much on looking at how we work together as a health system to improve the care we give to patients. As a provider of hospital services, our aim is to deliver high quality care which meets our patients’ needs, and first-hand experience of where we have got things both wrong and right in the past is invaluable in shaping this work. I would urge anyone with an interest or experiences to share, good or bad, to come along to this event and help us to ensure we’re putting patients first.”

Places are limited and attendance must be booked by calling Kayleigh Gregory on 01482 672052 or through the web link:


The event, hosted by NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS East Riding of Yorkshire CGG, forms part of the response to the second Francis Report into the public inquiry of Mid Stafford Hospital from the two CCGs and providers of health and social care across Hull and East Riding.

The CCGs have been working together with providers since the report was published to ensure that patients are at the heart of the health care system, and fully involved with every stage of their care.
