ENGLAND'S chief inspector of hospitals is inviting people to tell his inspection panel what they think of the services provided by Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust.

Their views and experiences will help inspectors decide what to look at when they inspect Lewisham and Queen Elizabeth Hospitals on February 26.

The trust is among the first to be inspected and given an overall rating under radical changes which have been introduced by the Care Quality Commission.
The Chief Inspector, Professor Sir Mike Richards, announced last year that he will lead significantly larger inspection teams than before, headed up by clinical and other experts including trained members of the public.

Inspectors will be holding two listening events, both at 6.30pm on February 25 February, at Charlton House and Lewisham Central Community Hub, at the Leemore Centre, Clarendon Rise.

Sir Mike said: "This is your opportunity to tell me and my team what you think, and make a difference to NHS services in the local area."
