From 1st December 2014, it is a contractual requirement that all GP Practices undertake the NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT).
The Friends and Family Test is a feedback tool that supports the fundamental principle that people who use NHS Services should have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience that can be used to improve services. It is not a traditional survey, it is a continuous feedback loop between patients and practices.
The primary aims of the FFT are to:
- gather useful feedback from people who use services that can be fed directly to staff that provide their care, in a simple format, in near real time
- identify areas where improvements can be made so practical action can be taken
- inform current and prospective patients about the experiences of those who use the practice service
The FFT is anonymous and we welcome any feedback that you wish to give the Practice.if you do not wish your anonymous comments to be shared, please let us know.
