Thank you

Here, you can view messages of thanks submitted by patients and families to teams and individuals who cared for them. You can filter the messages by service, ward and date.

Share your thanks with our staff

We know that many of our patients and families want to share messages and say ‘thank you’ to the staff who cared for them whilst they were in hospital. It means so much to us to hear how our patients are recovering, and moving on with their lives. 

We want to give our patients and their families a chance to share a message, a photo or even a video with the team who cared for them, in a different but still very personal way. These messages can really help raise staff morale and bring a lot of joy and satisfaction to know their hard work has made a difference.

If you would like to share a message with the team or individual staff member who cared for you, please accept our terms and conditions below. You can also provide a photograph, video or audio with your message if you wish.

  • Submitted message will be triaged by a moderator. If the message is deemed inappropriate due to offensive language or content it will not be published. You will receive a notification to inform you of this. If it is felt your message is a complaint or raises a concern, the moderator has the right to forward your message to PALS team for review.
  • This platform is not designed to respond to clinical queries or medical emergencies. By submitting a message through this portal you are not expecting any direct response from your clinical team and that this is a ‘one-way’ communication portal only.

  • The moderator has the right to make minor edits only that are felt to help it to reach the appropriate staff members (e.g. inserting Ward numbers) or remove any superfluous or inappropriate comment. This final version will be emailed back to the uploader for review. You will have the right to remove the uploaded message from the staff portal page at any time.
