    Yorkshire Cancer Patient Forum CNS Survey

    We are keen to find out about the quality of care you have received as a cancer patient, and in particular, the role played by a clinical nurse specialist (CNS), who may also be called your keyworker or support worker or care coordinator.

    PARKING EYE

    As you may have noticed we have now had camera’s installed at Trinity Medical Centre in an effort to improve the car park for patients use. We currently allow users to park in the car park for 2 hours which should be more than enough for patient use, but hopefully will stop those who were abusing the car park for other means. We have already seen a huge improvement in the car park since the signs and cameras have been installed and hope our patients see this improvement also when they visit the surgery. If you would like to leave us some feedback about this change, please do so either…
