Inpatient patient experience survey

Patient experience is a recognised component of high quality care. The Northern Ireland quality 2020 strategy defines quality under 3 main themes: safety, effectiveness, and patient and client focus. This focus on the patient and their experience of care is to ensure that the health service is always centred around the needs of the patient. Identification of these needs is therefore of the utmost importance.

Purpose of survey

The department of health in Northern Ireland, working with health and social care trusts, undertook the Inpatient patient experience survey in 2017. The aim is to gain a greater understanding of the aspects of care that are of most importance to patients, to act on patients’ feedback, and to improve the quality of health and social care.
