Each month Virgin Care makes one change in every single service it runs as a direct result of feedback from the people who use the services. From little changes like moving chairs around to big ones – such as offering additional appointments or helping a patient with a specific request – it’s part of how Virgin Care makes sure that everyone feels the difference.
