Feedback from a presentation on current day maternity services
“I’ve heard so many good things about what you have found and put in the report and can’t thank you enough for your hard work in compiling the whole thing. Lets hope people listen and take note. “
Mr R, Wales
“I would like to thank you so very much for your very thorough Review of Governance at BCUHB. Thank you for including X’s Complaint in your Report, I hope it impacts on people in a ‘how could they do it!’ kind of way.
I’m not surprised at the quantity of problems you found and it is very satisfying to have confirmation of what I, and other carers, came across in our journey through the mire, which is BCUHB.
I’m so very grateful for all your help in navigating my way though my complaint and for your understanding care throughout the process. “
Carer feedback on Ockenden report
“ I look forward to working with you again very soon. I have always found you to be very approachable and efficient. Your advice has always been sound and its always a pleasure working with experts like yourselves who are able to provide balanced and credible views. “
“Can I again thank you for all of your very hard work, and I and many of the other families respect you more than you will realise, and I really hope that the huge effort you have put into your report pays off. I’m still going to carry on fighting for justice for my mother and it’s what all the families caught up in this whole affair deserve, and I do look forward to reading your report as there is one thing it will be and that is truthful.“
Family member, Mr D.
“Congratulations and thanks for your report. I agree with everything you have said and it must have taken a mind boggling amount of work to include so much detail. I hope this will be a turning point for the people of North Wales, that openness and honesty is a matter of course, and that in time we will get the standard of service we deserve, which seems to be standard in most other parts of the country.“
“Donna, you were inspirational!“
