About the friends and family test
The NHS Friends and Family Test is a nationwide initiative to gain feedback from patients about the care and treatment they receive in hospital. Patients are asked whether they would recommend NHS services to their friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment.
The Friends and Family Test is rolled out to all departments across the Trust including, outpatients, maternity services and paediatrics. Every patient that receives treatment in these areas can give feedback about the quality of care they have received.
