Patient feedback - we are listening
The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust is committed to providing a first-class service to all our patients. Your feedback is vital to us so that we can improve the areas that need improving and make sure we keep doing the things we are doing right.
Here at Mid Yorkshire our ambition is to achieve excellent patient experience each and every time. Patients, carers, friends and family are welcome to leave feedback at any point.Please tell us about your experience through our online survey.
The Friends and Family Test question asks “Overall, how was your experience of our service?” and our survey gives the option for you to leave free text feedback as well as rating your experience.
The comments left, whether on an individual, team or service level, promote ideas for improvement, help celebrate good practice and raise morale.
Feedback via the Friends and Family Test is anonymous and can be given in the following ways:
You can leave your feedback online here. Simply select the type of service and team or ward name you want to leave feedback about. You can also access the survey in a number of alternative languages via this link.
You may be offered a card by a staff member for you to share your feedback with us.
Using your smartphone you can scan the QR code found on some of our posters, leaflets, flyers and on our Friends and Family Test feedback cards that you should see around our wards and departments.
