The NHS Friends and Family Test
The NHS Friends and Family Test is a simple question that patients across the country are asked about the care they have received.
Patients are asked: “How likely are you to recommend our service to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?”
Patients can choose from a number of responses ranging from ‘extremely likely’ to ‘extremely unlikely’.
The test aims to encourage patient feedback, show patients that their views and experiences matter to the NHS, and improve patient experience
Self Care is about looking after yourself; living a healthy lifestyle and looking at what you can do and want to do- rather than what you can’t do.
It is also about taking responsibility for your own health and wellbeing with the support of the people involved in your care.
This could be brushing your teeth regularly, taking medicine when you have a cold, or doing some exercise. It is really important to help keep yourself as well as possible.
We have a useful Self Care leaflet available to pick up in the surgery or access it here Keep Calm and Self Care
