Health Watchdog Calls For Stafford and Cannock Hospital Feedback
A health watchdog has made a fresh appeal for people who have been treated at Stafford or Cannock Hospitals to come forward.
Staffordshire LINk initially asked for feedback in December after a documentary highlighted the high mortality rates uncovered at Stafford Hospital in 2008.
The programme also focussed on a report last year criticising the Breast Cancer Multi Disciplinary Team at the hospital.
Now the LINk wants to make sure as many patients as possible get in touch before their views are analysed and published.

Sue Baknak, manager of Staffordshire LINk, said: "Whatever your experiences at Stafford and Cannock, we want to hear about them.
"The more people talk to us, the more they can help improve the things that need improving and protect the things that are working really well.
"Budget pressures mean difficult decisions are being made every day, and that makes it all the more important for service users to have their say."
Staffordshire LINk was set up to investigate the views of patients and adult social care users across the county and to make recommendations aimed at improving services. It has statutory powers to enter providers' premises and view how services are provided.
Staffordshire LINk is part of Engaging Communities Staffordshire (ECS). From April, the national network of LINks will be replaced by a new organisation called Healthwatch England.
Staffordshire County Council has agreed in principle that ECS will deliver Healthwatch Staffordshire from April.
