Patient experience

Quality counts: Patient’s voice at the heart of what we do

The quality of our services and the experience of our patients is what counts the most. What our patients tell us about our services helps us to get even better, and we use their all important feedback to understand what we’re really doing well, and where we really need to raise our standards even higher.

We use a range of methods of gathering patient and carer feedback including the Friends and Family Test, Patient Opinion, patient and carer surveys, focus groups and Patient Stories.

To help meet our vision NCH&C has developed a Patient Experience and Involvement Strategy which sets out key goals and how we intend to improve patient experience and involvement. It builds on previous, existing and new initiatives and is delivered and monitored through an annual Implementation Plan. We ensure that when listening to and acting upon feedback we use our core values of Community, Compassion and Creativity to improve care.
