Understand the friends and family test

“The NHS treats over 1.4 million people every 24 hours”
“News” July 2018. NHS England website. Retrieved 14 February 2023.

To understand how we are all doing we need feedback.

The NHS wants to support and encourage people to speak up about their experiences of care, including good experiences and where improvements can be made. The friends and family test (FFT) is a quick and simple feedback tool which enables patients to indicate how their experience of a services was. Patients can also provide a free text comment to explain why they have scored as they have.
