Healthwatch Lancashire volunteers take part in PLACE assessment

PLACE (Patient-led assessments of the care environment) is an annual snapshot that gives hospitals, hospices and day treatment centres a clear picture of how their environment is seen by those using it, and how they can improve it.

This week, Healthwatch Lancashire volunteers took part in a PLACE assessment at Royal Preston Hospital. The assessment took place on the 17th of February between 10:30 am  and 2:30 pm .

Throughout 2015, annual PLACE assessments will be conducted across all trusts and hospitals in Lancashire with help from staff and volunteers from Healthwatch Lancashire.
