Friends & Family Test - have your say to improve your healthcare
Did you know you can now have your say to help improve more services across the NHS?
The Friends and Family Test is about giving patients the opportunity to provide feedback on their care and treatment experience. Its already in use in many parts of the NHS and is expanding to a lot more.
You can say what is going well and what can be improved so that people who make decisions about local healthcare can take your views into account.
It doesn't take long and you don't need to give your details on your feedback form.
Look for details in the reception or waiting room. You can ask a member of staff how you can take part or find out more online at www.nhs.uk/friendsandfamily.
You can provide feedback either by paper format available from reception or in the waiting area or via the link on our website site (on the right hand side).
