- Gifts for NHS staff
I wrote a letter of thanks, naming the nurses and Drs that had done a fantastic job looking after me to the patient liaison people at the hospital
When I popped in for a follow up, my consultant and some of the nurses present seemed genuinely suprised and appreciative of the effort.Posted 4 years agoratherbeintobagoSubscriber
Assuming all goes smoothly, what the medical staff (surgeon & anaesthetist) will really appreciate is a letter of thanks naming them. We are obliged to collect patient feedback, which is more difficult than you’d think (especially for the gas board, as all our patients are asleep most of the time we’re with them…); a letter can be put in the annual appraisal folder.

I’m assuming there are a few NHS staff on here…
Long and short, I’m taking my elder sister in for an operation on Wednesday and she has the mother of all needle phobias. Like a massive phobia.
The staff will have their work cut out dealing with her so I will want to thank them. Question is: What am I allowed to give them. I’m assuming food stuff’s aren’t allowed, so the question is: What gift can I give staff that is allowed in a hospital?
Cheers in advance.Posted 4 years agonoteethMember
most nurses don’t need more chocolates
Over the best part of 20 years in the NHS, I’ve seen (and eaten) a veritable avalanche of Quality Street… and just one fruit basket. 😯
a letter of thanks naming them
This – letters and cards get pinned to the wall of our staff room, and they are always a (much-needed) morale booster & greatly appreciated. Plus, wards should be giving patients comment cards upon discharge – be sure to fill them out.Posted 4 years agoDracSubscriber

Many do now. Our local hospital trust has developed a system where you are given a token at each department as you leave you drop a token in a box on how satisfied you are with the service. There’s about ten options and as it’s so easy to do they get a good response.Posted 4 years ago
