The introduction of open visiting on the Stroke ward at Trafford General Hospital has been positively received by staff, families, carers and patients. Trafford General are now looking at introducing it across elderly care wards in Manchester Royal infirmary and more wards in Trafford. Open Visiting is based on improving patient and family-centred care and they are looking to evaluate it in a way so they understand the impact on patients, relatives and carers experience and to see if there are additional benefits not previously reported.

They are looking for anyone who has been an in-patient or is a relative or carer that will be able to attend only 2-3 meetings over the next year to help shape the project and be on the advisory group.
