Their views and experiences will help inspectors decide what to look at when they inspect the trust.
The trust is among the first to be inspected and given an overall rating under radical changes which have been introduced by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The formal inspection of The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust will start on 25 March 2014.
To ensure the views of patients and the local community are properly heard, the inspectors will be holding two listening events, both at 6.30pm on Tuesday 25 March. The events will be held at Dudley Town Hall, Dudley and The Talbot Hotel in Stourbridge.
