Virtual Patient Focus Group

​​​​​​​The Virtual Patient Focus Group is an online forum of current and former UHN patients and caregivers, who provide input and feedback, through online surveys, on important hospital priorities and projects.

The feedback we receive is used to understand our patients' perspective, as we implement chan​ges at our hospital.

One of the exciting aspects of this focus group is that all communication is done through email, and you have the ability to contribute when it is convenient for you.​​
