Would You Recommend this Service to Friends and Family?

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

Since its launch in 2013, around 70 million pieces of patient feedback have been submitted.

The FFT is in use across most NHS services, including:

  • community care
  • hospitals
  • mental health services
  • maternity services
  • GP and dental practice
  • emergency care, patient transport and more
