Hospital will get patients involved
Posters reminding nursing staff not to talk over patients and involve them more in their care have gone up in wards.
St Mary's Hospital, in Praed Street, Paddington has put the posters up in staff areas for a six week period.
The idea was brought in because in the last national inpatient survey the trust - Imperial College Healthcare which looks after St Mary's - scored lowly for patient involvement in their treatment.
