What is the Friends & Family Test (FFT)
The FFT asks the people in our services whether they would recommend the NHS service they have received to friends and family who need similar treatment or care. Everyone is offered the opportunity to complete the FFT questionnaire when they are ready to be discharged from our services or at other points during their care pathway. The FFT questionnaire may be by using an ipad, one of our electronic kiosks or a paper questionnaire.
The FFT asks the following question, ‘How likely are you to recommend our service to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?’ The response options range from ‘extremely likely’ to ‘extremely unlikely’ with an opportunity to also provide further comments on the care received.
Feedback helps us to understand where we can make improvements to services, identify what matters most to people and to see where there is good practice.
What we do with the feedback received
The FFT provides a valuable insight into the experiences of those people using the services we offer. We use this feedback to help shape improvements in the services we offer.
