Complaints and Feedback

We welcome feedback to tell us what we are doing right and what we can improve.

Friends and Family Test

The NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT) was created to help service providers and commissioners understand whether patients are happy with the service provided, or where improvements are needed. It's a quick and anonymous way to give your views after receiving NHS care or treatment.

We want you to have the best possible experience of care. Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your experience – what you like and what you think we could improve. Ultimately, you’re helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer the best possible care.

This film explains how people who use NHS services can give feedback on their experience of care and treatment by using the NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT).
