Hillingdon CCG Friends and Family Test - be part of our pilot
NHS Hillingdon Clinical Commissioning Group is delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding to pilot a Friends and Family patient and carers experience survey across our Musculoskeletal and Mental Health Services.
We are calling on all Hillingdon patients and carers who have accessed a healthcare service for a Musculoskeletal or Mental Health condition to complete the survey and tell us about your experience. All surveys are anonymous and feedback will be extremely valuable in helping the CCG to improve services for both existing and future patients across the borough.
The Friends and Family patient and carers experience survey will be made available at a range of NHS clinics and healthcare services throughout Hillingdon between Monday March 3rd and Monday May 12th 2014. You or your carer can complete the survey by asking your clinic or healthcare service for a survey, or by visiting www.hillingdonccg.nhs.uk for a copy.
If you have any questions about the survey, are having difficulty with the questions or need questions translated into a different language, please contact Aaron Mutiti from the Hillingdon CCG Communications Team on 01895 488160 or email
