Patient experience

Experience is personal and how a patient, their family or carer feels about their experience of a service is vital. Improving patient experience is a key aim for the Trust.

By listening to your feedback we are able to replicate the services you like, help resolve issues you are having, and make improvements in the areas that patients say matter most.

Tell us your story or pass on a compliment

Patient stories are an invaluable way of helping us to understand what really matters to you and ensuring that improvement of services is centred on the needs of the patient. It is also helpful to hear about what you think we are doing well so that we can share your positive experiences.

If you would like to share your story with us, email Anna Passmore.

Would you recommend us to friends and family?

The Friends and Family Test is a simple question that patients will be asked about the care and treatment they received in inpatient wards, minor injury unit departments and throughout our community services.

Put simply, we want to know if the standard of care you received was the same standard of care you would want your friends and family to receive if they needed to if they had the same or a different condition, even if they live in a different area. You will be invited to answer a very simple question, asking you if you’d recommend your care to your friends or family using a scale.
