The CQC are currently surveying patients who had at least one overnight stay in hospital during July 2018.
This survey is part of a national survey programme run by CQC to collect feedback on the experiences of people using a range of NHS healthcare services across the country. The results contribute to CQC’s assessment of NHS performance as well as ongoing monitoring and inspections. The programme also provides valuable feedback for NHS trusts, which they can then use to improve patient experience. The data also contributes to the Outcomes Patient Experience Systems of the NHS.
If the CQC have sent you a survey, make sure you fill it in and send it back before the end of January.
