On the morning of the 31st of July 2019 members of Bethphage including staff and the people we support attended the first Treat Me Well Shropshire meeting. Bindya Mistry from Mencap was on hand to guide us through the setting up process of our local group and it was great to see so many people involved.
We started off by recapping our previous session and the ideas we had put forward. We found that people remembered a lot about the last session and were keen to get stuck in. After running through some of the good and bad hospital experiences from the group we split up into our tables to take on one problem within local hospitals; some of these problems included cancelled hospital appointments and the signs around the hospital not being easy to understand.
To approach these problems we used the PEST format, Problem, Evidence, Solution, Time. We had some great discussions and all came away with something to do for next time.
We are all very excited for our next meeting where we can make some of these ideas into a reality.
