Patient and Public Involvement Feedback Analysis Report (16 March - 16 May 2021)

This report provides an overview of communications and engagement activity and detail on how South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust (STSFT) is delivering an open and transparent patient and public involvement process around the redevelopment of Sunderland Eye Infirmary (SEI).

The findings will be used to support the ongoing design process for the new build and will inform the Statement of Engagement as part of the formal planning application to Sunderland City Council.
