Friends and Family Test

  • The NHS Standard Contract for 2014/2015 requires that providers of NHS-funded services undertake the Friends and Family Test (FFT). The FFT offers patients of NHS-funded services the opportunity to provide feedback about the care and treatment they received. We are asking patients how likely it would be that they would recommend the service they have received from us to their friends and family.

In order to participate, your Review can be submitted either by the 'Have your say - Friends & Family Test' link or via the link below
